    In the spirit of this thread, now I'm going to come up with some "negative" traits. Don't take this too seriously, this is just for fun. ;)

    Taxing:
    Maximum of 4:commerce: in all tiles.
    Half production speed of Bank.

    Disloyal:
    When other civilizations catch your spies, they keep them as their own. (like worker-stealing)
    For each military unit inside others' borders, 2% chance per unit per turn that it defects to that civilization. (It is sent to that civ's nearest city if this happens.)
    +1:mad: per building that contributes any :espionage:.

    Polluting:
    +25% :yuck: from all buildings causing :yuck:.
    Cannot build Aqueduct, Hospital, or Recycling Center.

    Passive:
    -2 EXP points to all military units created.
    Other civilizations may declare war while inside your borders and remain there.
    Half production speed of Barracks and Dry dock.

    Egalitarian:
    Cannot use Slavery, Serfdom, Caste System, or Hereditary Rule civics.
    Cannot build the Pyramids.
    Half production speed of Jail.

    Theocratic:
    +1:mad: per each city's :religion: that is not the state :religion:.
    Must declare a state :religion: if any of your cities has any :religion:.
    Theocracy civic does not block the spread of :religion:.
    Cannot use Free Religion civic, unless mandated by UN treaty (must vote "No" or "Never!" for it).

    Authoritarian:
    Cannot use Emancipation, Universal Suffrage, Free Speech, Free Religion, or Representation civics, unless mandated by UN treaty (must vote "No" or "Never!" for them).
    Half production speed of Library and University.

    Bureaucratic:
    +50% civic costs.
    Courthouse has no effect on city maintenance costs.
    +50% corporation costs.

    War-mongering:
    -3 relations with all civilizations.
    Voting "Never!" on UN resolutions just counts as a "No" vote, but your civilization still experiences the effects of a "Never!" vote, including the :mad: penalty.

    Paranoid:

    All civilizations are your worst enemy, and they all get 100% espionage against you. Whenever another civilization is at war with you, all other civilizations get open borders with them. Invading units hide their nationality because they all hate you anyway, so what does it matter? All your cities get +50% science and +50% military units because you are a supreme scientific and military genius.

    Aah. I see I was not specific enough. When I said "sexy animals" I did not just mean just female animals.:lol: The Playboy Corporation moves to the civ because the leader is female or because of the :drool:and :love: in the 50% of population if the leader is a guy. The +5 with Catherine is because she either admires or wants you...:mischief:

    I hope this ends any further confusion.;)

    Nuclear Fanatic
    Can build nukes 50% faster.
    Will always vote against the no nuke UN resolution.
    Stockpiles nukes.
    50% chance they just like the idea of them and prefer to use them for intimidation.
    50% chance they want to start a nuclear war.

    But the Antichrist is supposed to unite the nations of the world and be accepted as a leader by all the major religions.

    Point.
    Actually, given that the title of Antichrist was thrown at each barbarian leader by early popes, maybe it would make an interesting additional vote for the Apostolic Palace? Choose a leader, if vote passes that leader suffers a relationship penalty with everyone of your religion? [EDIT: of course, the title would change depending on the religion, Antisemitic for Judaism etc]
