    Rasenna -- Etruscans
    Civilization Ability: Dodecopolis; You can receive a bonus to City-state influence, and any forts in your territory and on the coast can become colonies and eventually city-centers

    Unique Unit: Samnite Mercinary; Replaces the Spearman, it has a weak ranged attack, and ignores hilly defense bonus.


    Unique Infrastructure: Colonial Square; It works the same as a city-center, only it can't produce districts.

    Italus
    Leader Ability: Antiquities of Italy; All artifacts produce culture, When a city culturally expands to have a resource, it is automatically improved- provided you have researched the required technology.

    Leader Agenda: Conversion of the Oenotrians; He will like civilizations that are less advanced culturally than him, hates civilizations that are more advanced technologically than him.

    Polynesia

    Civilization Ability: Wayfarers - Polynesian naval and embarked units get +1 sight. Whenever you uncover a new water tile, you get culture. If it is a tile no one has discovered, you get faith. Whenever you discover a new continent, gain great prophet points.
    Unique Unit: War Canoe - Replaces the galley. It costs less, has +1 movement and can enter oceans, but is slightly weaker.
    Unique District: Carving House - Replaces Industrial Zone. Slightly more expensive than a normal industrial zone, but can be built on a water tile, and gives +1 production to every sea resource in the city. This bonus is doubled when you build a workshop.

    Leader 1: Te Rauangaanga (Maori)
    Leader Ability: Haka War Dance - Units that require no resources reduce the combat strength of adjacent units. Gain the Maori Warrior unique unit.
    Leader Unit: Maori Warrior - Replaces Swordsman. Requires no iron to make, and gets a bonus to attack while embarked.

    Leader 2: Kamehameha (Hawaiian)
    Leader Ability: Law of the Splintered Paddle - Delegations to and from you cost 0 gold. If you and a Civ you know both have a delegation to each other, you each get +1 envoy points a turn. Future versions of Delegations also count for this bonus.
    Leader Agenda: Diplomatic Recognition - Wants to have a delegation with every Civ, and is much more open to accepting delegations. Doesn't like civs that refuse diplomatic actions from him.


    Leader 3: Marama (Easter Islanders)
    Leader Ability: Stone Heads - Can build the Moai infrastructure. Clearing features doesn't cost builder charges and gives faith.
    Leader Infrastructure: Moai - Grants culture. After flight, generates tourism, but you cannot build anymore. Must be built on the coast or next to a quarry. Requires masonry.
    Leader Agenda: Grand Builders - Wants to build as much Moai as possible. Dislikes civs who settle cities where he could build lots of Moai.

    So many good ideas and so little time to comment! Interesting to note how much interest there is in representing the Maori, Mali, Portugal and various Italian factions.

    Parent post updated with a badass alternate female Mayan queen (yet another warrior queen, and this one held the title of "supreme warrior") and some more details about Zenobia. Also modified some abilities slightly. One day, when work becomes faster, I will be able to conceptualize the other leaders mentioned in my parent post, though I think Hayam Wuruk and other Majapahit leaders are well-served by other contributors in this thread. :)

    After some thought, I think that Argentina could be a nice add-on to the game.

    ARGENTINA

    Leader:
    Juan Manuel de Rosas


    President of Argentina Confederation and Governor of Buenos Aires, Rosas was a important figure in Argentinan History. He's known as a historical model for the 'Caudillo' in Platinian America (the regions that are around "rio del Plata"). Nationalist and interventionist, ruthless and diplomatic, Rosas is an ambigue historical figure who could add up much in terms of gameplay.

    Leader Ability: 'El caudillo'. Any Hacienda district occupied by a military unit provides bonus +1 in culture and +1 amennities in the capital (Buenos Aires).
    Leader Agenda: 'Rule of Mar del Plata'. Dislikes civs who establish sea trade routes with them. Likes civs who have strong navies.
    Unique Unit: 'Gaucho'. Gauchos are the unique cavalry for Argentina. Cheaper to build than regular cavalry and gains +10 attack bonus whenever is adjacent to Hacienda or Pasture tiles.
    Unique District: Hacienda. Substitute 'farm', providing extra defensive bonus for units.

    Gameplay: Rosas is more a defensive player. It will be a tough nut to crack to destroy its defenses and his isolationist agenda can creates attrition with expansionist civs. His focus on agriculture and horsemen help to develop a rural but strong civilization.

    Kingdom of Croatia was a smaller Kingdom in Europe from 8th century to 11th century. Soon it became a part of Kingdom of Hungary and in the future part of Austrian Empire. Kingdom of Croatia played a huge role in defense from Mongols and Turks . For 200 years Turks were fighting on its land and never managed to fully capture it. When Mongols attacked Hungary , they were only stopped when they reached city of Trogir and his famous walls. In its history , Croatia fought many defensive wars and came on top of each one. Croatia was a target for its rich coast and trade centers in history , they fought Venice for hundred of years to regain control of the coast

    Leader : Nikola Šubić Zrinski , famous Croatian general who was most known for his famous last stand at the battle of Szigetvár where he refused to surrender to Turkish forces and delt a major blow to their forces. Turkish forces had 100 000 soldiers on their side while Nikola had only 4000 , he still managed to kill 20 000 - 30 000 Turks before loosing the siege.

    Historical Agenda - Traders Heaven Likes Civs who have a good trade route network and income
    Civilization Ability - Croatian Spirit When not in a war , your empire gets +1 movement point for all units and +1 builder action , when in a defensive war you get +2 housing and +2 amenity points in ONLY first 3 cities
    Leader Ability - Bonus 10 combat strenght for all units when fighting within frendly borders
    Unique Unit - Croat Famous Croatian gunpowder unit , first ever unit in history to have a tie. Replaces Rifleman , improved healing outside frendly borders
    Unique Building - Croatian Walls - Replaces 2nd tier walls, bonus defense and offense stats , built faster if you have a source of stone near a city where you build them

    cjm81499, I like the suggestion for a Jerusalem quite a bit (esp. since Baldwin is one of my favorite lesser-known figures from history). It would be cool to see a teenage Baldwin with only some signs of leprosy, perhaps around the time he defeated Saladin. But I see little chance of Jerusalem making it into the game proper--unlike Venice or Genoa, Jerusalem never had an empire so a city list would be a bit tricky unless we included all the Crusader cities and made an Outremer like civ perhaps.

    Not sure if Yohl Ik'nal is a good leader choice for a female Maya queen. What little we know of her includes details of her city (Palenque) being sacked....she didn't long outlive the sack either.

    Also, what do we know of her that indicates she was involved with spies? We just know so little about her. The denounce ability will also likely see very little use in multiplayer. Pacal with his Sun shield agenda seems much better thematically and we know a great deal more about him (though I'm tired of seeing him as the Mayan leader as he's been in both IV and V).

    That said, I like your idea for Pacal's ability name and the ability itself, though it does mirror Brazil's jungle bonus quite closely.

    I really like the ideas here, ButtersLeopold. However, I do have a few comments.

    Wayfarers is incredibly modular which is good, because if you're focusing on water gameplay, it kind of needs something to make it more potent. I really enjoy the exploration bent of the ability.

    The War Canoe enables both offensive and exploratory paths which can synergize well with any of the leader options.

    The problem with your wording on the Carving House is that it goes against the way that Unique Districts currently work. As of now, all UDs cost less (50% Production, I think?) not more. That aside, being able to build it on a coast tile like a harbor could make sense with a good graphic.

    Replaces Galley. Reduces the Combat Strength of adjacent Barbarian units by -5. Provides 1 Production to the tile yield under it.

They patrolled the adjacent sea areas, repelling real pirates, directing traders to their employers' ports and maintaining those ports' dominance in the area)
    ---------- UNIQUE INFRASTRUCTURES ----------

    Alternative Chinese civilization:

    Civilization Unique Ability: Food for the People
    Citizens who work on farm tiles do not require amenity. +1 faith for a city if it has at least 1 citizens working on farms. +1 additional faith for a city if it has at least 3 citizens working on farms.
    (Having ones own farm and being able to feed his family was basically the ideal life for ancient Chinese for thousands of years. Farming is an important part of the culture, and Chinese folk religion as well.)

    Civilization Unique Infrastructure: Great Wall
    Unlocked with masonry and becomes obsolete with civil engineering. Each great wall tile has its own sight and can spot enemies within 3 tiles (Watchtower). Chinese units can move along the great wall neglecting terrain costs for movement, range units neglect height difference when firing on great wall, and receive +4 defense bonus when defending. Great wall can only be built as a line.(So AI won't build a ugly cluster of them anymore) The longest continuous great wall in your land provides tourism equal to its length after Flight.(There are actually many great walls in China, but people only go see the longest/greatest one). When pillaged it takes a charge to repair, and after becoming obsolete, great wall tile will be destroyed directly when pillaged but if pillaged by a hostile civilization, the civilization receives extra warmonger penalty for doing so. (For destroying cultural heritage.)
    (This should make great wall relevant again)

    Civilization Unique Unit: Corvée Worker
    Unlocked with State Workforce and becomes obsolete after entering industrial era. Has 3 charges and is cheaper than builder. Can build farm, road, great wall and fort with relative technology.
    (Ancient Chinese emperor often force farmers to become corvée worker to serve in the frontier as military engineering builders and some other duties. Notably, Qin Shi Huang does this a LOT)



    Leaders:



    Ying Zheng, aka Qin Shi Huang

    Agenda: The First Emperor of China
    Will try to build as many wonders as possible. Hate people who beat him to wonders unless he is not interested in such wonders or have no place to build it.

    Leader Unique Ability: Wall of 10000 Li

    Wu Zetian

    Agenda: The Only Empress of China
    Paying extra caution to any nearby civ who poses viable threat(usually masses of troops at the border) to her and make take the initiative to strike first if needed. Extra friendly to civs that give her gifts.
    (She was famous for taking the initiative to ruthlessly destroying her political enemies)

    Leader Unique Ability: A Woman's Work
    +1 food for farm for each two nearby farms. Gain a small amount of science and culture each time a citizen is born.
    (She valued domestic affairs much more than any others, and valued farming and the imperial examination greatly)


    Liu Che

    Agenda: The Emperor Wu of Han
    Will try to become suzerain of nearby city-states, but will actively try to annex city-states if he can't beat another civ to become the suzerain and will hate its suzerain. Do not care for city-states far away from his empire.
    (He annex many small nations near Han but also sent many envoys to some.)

    Leader Unique Ability: Destroyer of the Steppe Normans
    All land units receive +2 combat strength against cavalry units, additional +2 combat strength if the hostile unit is a barbarian, and additional +2 combat strength if the Chinese unit is light cavalry. +1 military policy slot.
    (He is famous for his aggressive actions against the Xiongnu, and he reformed the Han military to abandon chariot and use more horseman against the nomads.)


    Zhao Kuangyin

    Agenda: The Emperor Taizu of Song
    Dislike civs who spend too much production on building units and like other civs who make a lot of gold.
    (He was famous for being cautious towards military, and his efforts to relieve his fellow comrades peacefully, who were rebels along his side to overthrow previous ruler and now generals in the new dynasty. He also value commerce and culture more than most of the Chinese rulers.)

    Leader Unique Ability: Culture Over Military
    Cannot build encampment. All districts receive +1 bonus to culture when placed next to a commercial hub and commercial hub receive +1 bonus to gold for each one adjacent district instead of each two.


    Zhu Yuanzhang

    Agenda: The Hongwu Emperor
    Dislike civs who spend a lot of efforts to make citizens happy. Like other leaders who build few entertainment complex and choose to build other districts instead.
    (He was famous for ruling ruthless but with great efficiency)

    Leader Unique Ability: Jinyiwei
    Can build one spy with Feudalism. Spy operating on friendly territory better and city with at least one friendly spy is much less likely to spawn rebels and suffer much less penalty for not having enough amenity. Founded cities receives 50% more food from internal trade routes until its population reaches 4.
    (He is famous for creating the first secret police agency in China and he enforced many forced migration)


    Aixin-Jueluo Xuanye

    Agenda: The Kangxi Emperor
    Will usually not attempt a religious victory or spend faith to spread his religion outside if he has one, welcome foreign religion and will try to spread the best religion for each of his cities. Hostile to civ whose religion is the dominant religion of his empire and will stop the further spread of that religion.
    (He was known for his religious tolerance but caution as well for thinking some spread their religion in China for political purposes)

    Leader Unique Ability: Emperor in Plain Clothes
    Each city will only requires amenity for the 3th citizens and so on. Whenever a foreign religion gains more follower in the empire, gains a small amount of science and culture.
    (He is famous for his numerous visit to other cities in plain clothes to know how people are really doing. Also he welcomed foreign missionary and delegates to learn more advanced science and culture)

    Leader Unique Unit: Eight Banners
    Unlocked with Military Science. Unique musketmen unit with better combat strength. Additional combat strength when next to a friendly cavalry unit.
    (Famous units from the Qing Dynasty, which the rulers were nomads once themselves and use a lot of horse archers in the army)

    Leader Ability: Black jacobins. Haiti builders can rush up district building at the cost of 1 charge.

    Leader Agenda: Abolition of Slavery. Toussaint Louverture dislikes civs who spawn many builders and hates when they capture a enemy builder in combat.

    Gameplay: Haitian civ will bring a new dimension to the game. Players will spawn several builders, trying to take the most of Haitian bonuses and abilities. Its focus on 'working people' can achieve great production and, in case of war, it can also become a strenght against treacherous enemies. A balanced civ with a revolutionary theme.
