    I always do 21 Civs and 14 city-states on my huge games.

    On small map I go with 8 Civs to 10 CS's, 10:12 on standard. Definitely prefer closer to 1:1 than the 1:2 ratio the game defaults too.

    On standard size fractal map I've found that lowering the default of 16 city-states for 8 civs to 14 city-states is enough to make Liberty start feasible a little more often (about as rare on default settings as starting piety which I'll only sometimes do for desert starts). Of course Tradition is still a bit overpowered. I Don't want to lower the number of city-states more than I have to since I usually play random civs and some of them are built around city-state interaction.

    Now if only there was a way to make honor starts valid as more than an entertainment option.
