Thought on the future:
Set all cities to build barracks: we have enough units to demolish their present invading force if it comes near.
Meanwhile let EotS grow to full pop so that we can switch back to Bureacracy and turn on science (we need MC and Machinery before AC send Pikemen down to us).
We also need to think about founding more cities: AC has twice the number of cities and will evantually win the war if we do not expand soon. I suggest the site adjacent to rice and crabs (see screenshot below). It is well and truly out of the war zone, needs little protection from barbs and doesn't need a border expansion to be useful. It will also provide some much needed health for other cities.
