So I'm staring at the demographics window of my current game. Let's start with Russia, who's listed as last place, with 30,067 soldiers. I can see their whole empire. They've got one city with a cannon in it, and about six workers. I've been at war with them for a long time, so I doubt they've got significant forces hiding elsewhere. I'm in fourth place, with 131,195 soldiers. Mostly riflemen, with 44 combat units and another 29 non-combat. Yet I'm listed as having roughly four times what the Russians have. Since I assume that much of the AI's decision making is based off this statistic, I'd like to know how to increase my soldier count, and therefore maybe get some respect from the AIs. Because apparently 44 riflemen are only four times stronger than one cannon. Any ideas?
