RE; everything Terryman has been saying. It seems that once one of the weaker civs bring in an insane amount of cash by various other players in order to have that one more guy declare war on someone, they will somehow continue to do this for ever. As I posted about earlier, Uruguay somehow managed to rake in slightly over 2million gold in return for declaring war on, basically the world. Somehow (!!), they survived for nearly three more years (39 in game turns), and more than doubled that amount. In the mean time, other small-er-ish powers (Chile, Philippines, Persia) had also increased their treasuries to well over the million mark, while the major powers (Europeans, Japan & US) all were struggling in the low thousands.
