    City states are not playable, and don't have any flavour. They also cannot build wonders, spawn great people or discover technologies (they can if some civ did it before them).

    Also you might underestimate the influence of unified Italy to the modern world in science (Telephone, Radio, partly the Atom Bomb), ideology (Fascism), military (first military flight, frogmen, alpine corps) and every day life (plastic [search for Giulio Natta], food) just off the top of my head.
    Add it to the renaissance and medieval period and it's difficult to not see the worthiness.

    But I can accept the "cultural diversity" and "gameplay" reasons.

    NEW CITY-STATE THEORY TIME!:old:
    Apart from the Sofia replacing Hanoi, Budapest or Almaty theory we now have the possibility of Panama City replacing Jakarta, Venice, Sydney, Manila, Quebec, Ragusa or Mombasa

    Lisbon and Rio were both maritime, but now they are getting replaced by Ur and Riga.

    This is the list of the top requested civs (limited within CivFanatics)

    1. Portugal: 200 Confirmed
    2. Zulu: 175 Confirmed
    3. Indonesia: 157
    4. Brazil: 137 Confirmed
    5. Poland: 135 Confirmed
    6. Sumer: 131 Ruled out because of city-state

    7. Kongo: 118
    8. Hittites: 112
    9. Sioux: 106


    I wonder what the odds are any more of these top 9 make it in.

    EDIT: Also receiving a lot of votes:
    Other Native American civ (e.g. Apache, Navajo, Comanche, Cherokee, Mississippian, Inuit) - 114
    Other Middle Eastern (e.g. Assyria (CONFIRMED!), Israel/Hebrew, Armenia, Akkad, Elam, Georgia) -116
    Other colonial or modern (e.g. Mexico, Italy, Iran, Australia, Canada, Argentina) - 103

    Indonesia and the Sioux I think are the most likely. Kongo also have a good chance.

    The 9th slot is still for me the total wild card. I'd like to see the Hittites but am not rating their chances. The Timurids likewise. Maybe another Native American Civ, or even Italy?

    Israel and Slovakia are definitely out, at least (not that anyone was expecting Slovakia to be included, but anyway).

    Indonesia is almost certainly in as well, so that's one mystery solved.

    Thats a G&K screenshot it looks like; different UI, triangle adviser button. Doesn't mean anything.
