10. Greece

    We all know from history that Alexander the Great was a great king but even a more brilliant commander, managing to conquer territories from Europe to India. 

    Well in the game Alexander rules over the nation of Greece, which is a historical way it true, even if he isn't ruling a nation called Macedonia, which from history we know he did, Macedonia is de facto of Greece origins so that makes sense in a way to put him the ruler of Greece. In the game Alexander has some pretty cool buffs when it comes to the military, making him an easy pick for a fast phased victory, his Hoplites and Cavalry upgrades make Greece one of the strongest nations in the base game. Moreover, thanks to the Alexander Hellenistic League bonus, Greece has double influence over the city-states of the map.

    So if you are a beginner of the game and you want to learn the workarounds of the game, this nation is certainly for you.

    Among the many nations in Civilization 5 that I played, Korea is on top 3 in my book, here's why.
