    That is useful. The sooner you know Alex is on the other continent, the better. Heaven help you when two civs lose their capital early across the ocean and you end up getting a lot of Indian city names (this happened, Ghandi took over Mongolia ,France, and a good part of Rome...) It's not useful when you can get to everyone anyway, but if people are seperated by ocean, it can actualy be nice. Too bad it's bugged with the "longest. name. ever." achievement (does not give you the achievement when you have the city in this way).

    Not so useful religious belief
    Celibacy - Cities following this religion no longer grow and slowly decline to 0 pop.

    Here are more religious beliefs:

    Kosher:
    Cannot work truffle or crab tiles and gain no benefits from truffle or crab (even if exported)

    Halal:
    Cannot work truffle or wine tiles and gain no benefits from truffle or wine (even if exported)

    Creationism:
    Science output from science buildings, specialists, and academies are halved and the difference is converted to faith

    Not so useful (revised) Great Wonder: United Nations


    1) Civ that builds it may also now build the UU, "UN Peacekeeper" (300:c5production:, strength 50, may not attack, 50% chance of retreat upon being attacked (even if garrisoned in a city, fort, or citadel), 50% chance of surrender (unit is captured))

    2) Denouncing any other Civ now creates negative diplomatic influence towards the denouncer (from all other Civs), and positive influence towards the intended target.

    3) Allows automatic (one way) open border agreement with every other Civ towards the builder. Espionage becomes much easier against builder as well.

    4) CS Jerusalem may no longer ally with any Civ and may be attacked at will (by anyone) with no diplomatic penalties.

    5) Diplomatic victory is no longer possible after any Civ builds their first nuke.

    Expanding upon the previous not-so-useful:

    Not-so-useful unique unit: UN Observer (50 :c5production:)

    Starts with the "Security Council Veto" promotion, forbidding it from doing anything where it is stationed after 5 turns of being there.

    I think their UA should be Civil Uprising:

    If your people ever become unhappy, all cities get -100% production, and 10 turns later, the game ends, as you have been killed as their leader.
