I think its totally wrong that Native Americans have been in many previous versions of Civilization, but much more homogeneous group, Finno-Ugric tribes are not in the game. Finno-ugric tribes were the first people in Europe (with Basques), but these first people are not represented in any way in the game. These tribes were ruling Europe before Indo-European conquest. From this map you see the original area, where Finno-Ugric tribes were living. Still today there are remnants of Finno-Ugric influence. http://www.helsinki.fi/~sugl_smi/kuvat/Kartat/Kielet/Fenno-Ugrian_languages.jpg Even genetically Finns are very different from other Europeans, as you can see: I would say Finno-Ugric tribes would be as good option as Celts or Native -Americans for Civilization expansions. The reason why they are not in, is purely that Civilization is Anglo-centric. Celts and Native Americans have common history with English speaking world and this is the reason why they are in the game. So I think its wrong to say Civilization is Eurocentric. Its West -European centric.
