    Hmm... I think I've got it, but it's in the back of my head...

    Samurai?

    Also, I can't believe how I missed the Bóg sie Rodzi... Oh well, hindsight is 20/20. Considering how I actually like listening to that song from time to time...
    EDIT: Ach, I messed that up. Better wait until next clue. XD

    That's 5 incorrect guesses, so a 2nd clue will be provided:

    Clue 1: My deadliest rival adorns his banners with words,
    words from a UA,
    a UA from a civilization from across our sea.

    Clue 2: Another UA provided me the means for victory,
    a UA not my own.


    Again, the answer is referred to in first person. I just hope that I didn't make this too hard.

    BTW, 80% of the answers above have the potential to be on the right track.

    Korea?

    Deadliest rival Japan, and Art of War as a means of victory?

    I think I'll post the last clue before going to bed, since at this rate, the issue should be decided before I log in again.

    Clue 1: My deadliest rival adorns his banners with words,
    words from a UA,
    a UA from a civilization from across our sea.

    Clue 2: Another UA provided me the means for victory,
    a UA not my own.

    Clue 3: With my own UA,
    you had better play
    the same way that I lived:
    For it is the only way
    in the name of all 6 heavens
    that a demon can carry the day.


    Good night all!

    Carthage? For clue 3, you have build your empire on the coasts to make use of their UA. The second half of it is really cryptic, though...

    Ah well, that's more than 10 guesses, so I'm throwing out the answer.

    Clue 1: My deadliest rival adorns his banners with words,
    words from a UA,
    a UA from a civilization from across our sea.

    Clue 2: Another UA provided me the means for victory,
    a UA not my own.

    Clue 3: With my own UA,
    you had better play
    the same way that I lived:
    For it is the only way
    in the name of all 6 heavens
    that a demon can carry the day.

    Answer: Oda Nobunaga


    In clue 1, "deadliest rival" refers to Takeda Shingen, Oda's archrival and the leader of the Takeda samurai clan. Takeda made a habit of inscribing his war banners with excerpts from Sun Tzu's magnum opus Art of War, which is what the "UA" refers to. Needless to say, the "civilization" is China, and "our sea" refers to the Sea of Japan.

    In clue 2, the "means for victory" refers to firearms, which Oda equipped his troops with, giving him an advantage over many of his foes (Takeda included). The first firearms were shipped from the Portuguese colonies in India, which soon became the short-lived Portuguese East India Company, which was less famous than its Dutch and English counterparts.

    In clue 3, given Japan's UA in CiV (Bushido), you had better play the same way that Oda lived (waging war frequently). Oda Nobunaga was also given the nickname "demon of the sixth heaven" by Buddhist monks, which is one of the most powerful demons according to the religion - he was notorious for his tendency to raze buddhist temples and kill all monks and worshippers inside, following an incident where an abbot defied his will.

    BTW, I'm not Japanese, just in case you were wondering. :)

    Well, 24 hours seem to have passed, and I think I came up with a good one right now.

    Clue 1: I am despised by all except my owner.
