Fair enough, I generally turtle as much as possible and so I don't really count the UU towards civ rankings, but I can understand that others do. And you're right about the Bazaar being awesome, of course. In other news, I haven't played a lot as Sweden and I always thought they were crap-tier, but after playing the recent Deity challenge -- WOW. The GP gifting is amazing and can really help one get through the happiness issues one often gets with 4 cities around turn 110-180 (e.g., when your cities start getting big but you don't have an ideology yet). I may have to play more with them, but if the tundra start bias isn't typically crippling, maybe they need to be bumped up a level.
