    Does anybody know what exactly leader traits mean (like expansionist, perfectionist, etc, you may see them using embassy)?

    It describes AI behavior and possibly boni/mali. The expansionist and aggressive powers (Zulus, Russia, Mongols) are the very dangerous ones in the early game, since they spam the map with settlers and cheap offensive units and tend to attack anyone who isn't at least as strong as they are. The perfectionists tend to limit themselves to defensive units, city walls, and settlers who build mines, irrigation, and roads around their bases. Given enough time and area to expand, they can be dangerous w/r/t the space race; but they're usually much easier for humans to overrun.

    Play on Earth map and observe Zulus. They have enough starting lebensraum and just watch them go...

    the civilized leaders declare war less, in theory. In practice, the Civ I AI is so bloodthirsty that only Ghandi is safe, and thanks to bugs, he rolls around to actually be the most ludicrously aggressive leader in the game.
