Doesn't anyone else find it weird that Ethiopia of all nations is the faith dominant one in this game?
I could understand ancient Egypt, or the Celts (as they are), or India.
It's just a bit odd. Like if Attilla would be the science oriented guy, or if Sweden would be the warmongers lol.
Then again we have nuclear Gandhi so I suppose anything goes in civ
Actually this isn't weird at all, since Ethiopia has a long religious history.
It was one of the first to adopt christianity, and their form of christianity remains the religion with the most followers in ethiopia to this day.
Also the ethiopian kings allowed early muslims to take refuge in their country, and because of this Ethiopia was later spared from a muslim invasion.
On top of that the last and most famous ethiopian dynasty, the salomonid dynasty is said to derive from the descendants of King Salomon of Israel and the legendary Queen Sheba.
And if that's not enough to convince you that ethiopia should be a religious civ, then there's also the fact that the the ark of the covenant is said to be kept in a famous ethiopian orthodox church.
So, yeah Ethiopia should definately be a religious civ !
