i have reading for quite a while and somepeople say that republic good for early before changing into democracy. but when i try it it seem really bad for early goverment. first of all unit support cost 2 gold, the benefit only less corruption which is unnecessary because early in the game you only have small territory and even you have huge territory normally all city are town, because of massive settler production. and other bonus was +1 for everytiile that already give +1 I normally go for monarch, but after trying for republic it suddenly give -60gold, clearly +1commerce and corruption doesnt help. latter in the game democracy clearly better so just wondering how you maintain the expense caused by unit support, i like going war early in the game.
