So besides getting a cultural alliance, is there a way to not exert loyalty pressure on a nearby civ? For faster cultural victory times, I don't completely conquer a civ, but instead leave them with just one city. I don't want them to lose the final city then, but it's hard to prevent it. I guess there's self-sabotaging ways such as purposely going into a dark age. Maybe the best idea is to just found a worthless snow city far away from anything and then give it to that civ.
