    you pay for :
    all units (level dependant)
    + for units outside your borders (level dependant)
    + for military units under pacifism

    The cost depends upon level because you get a certain number of units free. The lower the level, the fewer you have to pay for. Bear in mind that inflation has an impact on that cost.

    Also, higher your population, more free units.

    I there a comprehensive guid to this calculation? At times I feel like I've crossed some threshold causing a huge change in maintenance, but can't figure out where it's from. Does the 'outside your borders penalty apply when units walk through friendly territory with open borders, or just while at war?

    It applies to units outside your cultural borders, but I don't believe it applies to vassal territory.

    There's something weird about workers though. Deleting one doesn't always save you gold above the free limit.
