    A lot of people here don't go into too much fast detail. Lot's of TL;DR (for me at least). I'm a noob, too, but this is from my experience...

    Babylon is best science for going wide (more than 4 cities).
    Korea is best science for going tall (less than 4 cities).
    Russia has the best late game Domination for double luxury resources which increase happiness like crazy and allows for double the elite units. Uranium is a rare luxury.
    China has a great mid game Domination with their UU and UB.
    Egypt best for passive and wide with Wonder construction and UB adding gold and happiness.
    Rome is great for active and wide. I tried Rome and just disliked them as they're really high in producing buildings but that's it.
    Venice is amazing for being able to trade with (at max) 20 cities and not a lot of room for expansion. This means smaller-sized maps either crowded with players or City-States.
    Portugal has amazing gold income while bordering lots of City-States.
    Ethiopia is only good at domination and going tall. Their UA means they need to have less cities than the Civ they're attacking.
    England is best when there's a lot of sea but not a lot of ocean. Their UA gives them sea/ocean domination but their UU gives 3 ranged attacks for archers.
    Ottoman is hands-down the best sea/ocean domination. -67% maintenance cost and being able to steal boats gives them a huge gold advantage.
    Germany is the generally the best for land domination without any terrain or path you want to follow.
    India can go tall or wide but cities need to have 6+ population to gain benefits of their UA.
    Persia is best for going active, wide, and domination. Their UB adds to gold (for domination) and happiness (for going wide).
    Zulu is best at going active and domination.
    Japan is similar to Zulu but more built towards end-game with their UU.
    Mongolia is the best for taking cities and razing them.
    Hunnic is the best for early-game city razing.

    Hopefully this helps someone.
