Back to the list of civilizations in Civ1
The Chinese are a playable civ in the first game, led by Mao Tse Tung. On the standard "Earth" map they are almost surrounded by plains and ocean and can therefore easily get stuck at population 2 or 3 with no growth and no net resource production. Irrigation is the key, after which there are many good city sites north and south and eventually inland, with no enemies nearby.
