BTW- if we fall back on a UN VC, the key is to keep in mind who we want as our opponent, and who (at least 1) will cast votes for us. So we have to try to get the biggest civ to be hated, and the smaller civs to love us. And we should be thinking about getting everyone in Free Religion, with spies if necessary. Saladin will want to keep his religion, and thus might make a good UN opponent. Note added: mapmaker has seemingly conciously chosen civs with varying and compatible favorite civics to make UN path very viable. We'd be in HR, Bur or Nationhood, and Environmentalism, and force everyone to be in Free Religion to prevent favor to Saladin in Theocracy.
