There are several Civilizations that have leaders with the Industrious trait. France, Incan , Rome , America, China , Germany, Russia, and Egypt. Louis XiV (Hereditary Rule)- French Empire - Industrious, Creative De Gaulle (Nationhood)- French Empire - Industrious, Charismatic Huaya Capa (Hereditary Rule)- Incan Empire- Industrious, Financial Augustus Ceasar (Representation)- Roman Empire- Industrious, Imperialistic Roosevelt (Mercantilism)- American Empire- Industrious, Organized Qin Shi Huang (Bureaucracy) - Chinese Empire-Industrious. Protective Bismark-(Nationhood) - German Empire - Expansive , Industrious Stalin-(State Property) Russian Empire- Aggressive, Industrious Ramesses- (Organized Religion)-Egyptian Empire- Spiritual, Industrious There are four wonders and two minor wonders to build/tech towards, in this style. They are - The Statue of Zeus - Enemies suffer +100% War Weariness, City More likely to generate a Great Artist - Double production speed with Ivory. Collossus -All cities water tiles + requires forge ,City more likely to generate a Great Merchant, Double production speed with Copper. The Statue of Liberty -+1 Free Specialist in All cities on this continent, requires Forge,Double production speed with Copper Christo Redentor - No Anarchy, No wait between Civics or State Religion changes, Double production speed for spiritual leaders, City more likely to generate a Great Engineer and the two minor wonders... Moai Statues - Water tiles + City more likely to generate a Great Prophet Double production speed with Stone Mt. Rushmore. - -25% War unhappiness in all cities, City more likely to generate a Great Artist, double production speed with Stone. Combined, these statue wonders cover the game aspects of War, Commerce, Specialists, Culture and Religion. Note the importance of Copper and Stone for a coastal city. Maintain one up-to-tech big land army and one big navy. Save at least one Great Engineer to help build the Statue of Liberty. Take or adopt any religion that comes around. Chopping will help build higher hammer wonders and clear the way for workshops as your first tech race will be to Metal Casting and Aesthetics. (Collosus , Zeus). (Sailing is required for the Moai Statues) Note that the Statue of Zeus requires at least two (one in the city) Monuments- Mysticism - before you can begin. Build this in a city near Ivory if available. Also Philosophy (which may land you Taoism ) is needed to tech towards Democracy) The Collosus requires a coastal city with a Forge. Your first or second city should be on the coast (near Copper). This city should build both the Collosus and the Statue of Liberty. It is a big leap to Democracy (Statue of Liberty)- (which also requires a Forge and too benefits from a city near Copper ) Radio (Christo Redentor) is the next tech path. (Scientific Method-Physics -Electricity), then Facism, (Mt Rushmore). (standard, fractal). While seemingly geared for war you also fend off unwelcome invasions by your stance which may or may not be tilted towards attack, in the meantime your tech path with all the Statue Wonders completed ensures tech parity, and a multitude of winning options, with the space parts primed for a speedy build due to the productive power of this empire. This quadratic strategy utilizes the optimal civilization/wonder (+amount) binary code interaction while providing for strong troops, industerial power, and good tech rate. Culture and Gold can both be balanced by razing any enemy city near your border. If they build it again raze it again, alleviating cultural pressure and providing cash and tech from the ruins as well as amplifying the statue wonder graphics in your cities compared to the rubble.
