What type of victory is each country going for?

Also what country/countries do you feel would be most likely to go the way of Gandhi and use Nukes if given the option?

The choices are Domination, Science, Cultural, or Political

 

More information:

http://civilization.wikia.com/wiki/Victory_%28Civ5%29

 

Examples:

United States - Domination, Science, Political

Canada - Science

Mexico - Cultural

The country does not have to be doing well at the type of victory but it should be their best chances to "win". Obviously you may use more than one type per country

 

 

Use any countries you see fit! But please do not insult other countries (yours is free game lol)

This should be an interesting, fun thread!



Around the Network

USA - Cultural, Political
Russia - Domination
North Korea - Domination
South Korea - Science
China - Domination, Political



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Japan is probably going for science but then again their culture is spreading everywhere!!!!

Very interesting indeed!

You do not think that the USA would use Domination if given the chance? Also what about Science? The USA is way up there in everything scientific lol

I think 30 or 40 years ago I would have said science. But these days the government doesn't seem to be so interested in pursuing scientific goals, that is mostly the corporations who are doing that now. Don't think they would use domination. They like to use their army yeah, but only to aid them in their other goals. It gives them a cultural and political advantage. The political advantage is obvious, but they are also spreading their culture to other countries with it. I don't think they would ever attack countries they get on well with, so can't use it for a domination victory, maybe get rid of all the countries that don't like them as part of a political victory though.

I can not think of any really good examples of U.S. culture (which is a combination of a lot of different cultures) spreading though. Can you think of any good examples? Political is absolutely the U.S.'s strongest chance to win.



Norway - victory through pity for being so small and insignificant, like the kind bro that gives his lunch to the skinny kid in school.

US culture is everywhere. Everone knows about American movies and music. English is the most widely spoken 2nd language in the world (usually American English as well). American sport has a growing influence as well, basketball and baseball are probably the strongest American sports outside America. Many countries have government or education systems based on the way the Americans do it as well. Then there is the American dream that everyone knows about that helps to make America a popular place to immigrate to.

Those are all true, I guess I stand corrected :)
