Good afternoon everyone. I tried to be a 'good rookie' and see if there was a gov't topic somewhere but I came up short. As such, asking is never a bad thing. (The worst that can happen is my being directed to the appropriate topic and sworn at a few times, lol)
The question: I would like to have a more in-depth look at each government style, so that I can decide for myself which is the best for each situation. The information in the civilopedia is simply too vague.
For example: I keep hearing all this praise for democracy, but without any unit support I always end up losing money, when the turn before with monarchy I was growing by 3 gold per turn.
From my personal experience in the game (this is NOT my real belief -- just for the game), communism is my favorite peace-time gov't and facism is my favorite war-time gov't. But I would like to know more of the others to make sure I am not missing out on something.
