I happened to start a new game tonight as the Chinese and noticed something a little peculiar about their civilization description. "You are the leader of the Chinese, the oldest and the greatest civilization that humanity has ever produced". Pretty high praise I must say. I just finished a game as America, so I had seen that description at every load. It always felt strange to me. "...in the 20th century, that the United States reached the height of its power" /tinfoilhat on!
