    Favourite Leader: Stalin/Elizabeth (My Fav civics in order are Industrious, Philosophical, Financial, Agressive. These 2 are the only 2 European leaders that fit this combo)
    Favourite Civ: Rome (Preats gave me a diety victory...)
    Favourite AI: Catherine (I like having CLOSER relationships with leaders...)
    Least Favourite AI: Gandhi (In one game he demanded Steam Power from me for 8 turns in a row, GET A HINT!!!)
    Strength's: Economy (792 GPT on 100% science FTW), Tech Rate (Mec Infanty vs Longbowmen FTW), Military Strategy's (knowing what units to build and how to counter enemy armies. I once on a 7 man continent had the 4th highest power ranking (This was a game as the Mongols on RFC RAND, and was right after I destroyed China, so of course I wasn't in the best situation). Persia was second and Japan was third. I declared war on Persia causing Japan to declare war on me due to the defensive pact they had. After 3 turns I had destroyed Persia and take 1 city off Japan. After 10 turns I gave him that city back in exchange for peace.)
    Weaknesses: Diplomacy (If someone ever demands something from me, I say no and declare war. No matter how reasonable it is, however they have to be either Cautious or lower for this to take affect), refusal to build armies unless during wartime, always trying to build every wonder in capital, and expansion, Settlers early game are to expensive and I generally get my second city after monarch AIs have 4.
    Favorite Diplo Music: Catherine Industrial
    Least Favourite Diplo Music: Sitting Bull
    Favourite Era: Ancient Era (the defining period)
    Favourite Civic Combo: Industrial, Philosophical

    I added the last question...
