City-States are small independent political entities introduced in Civilization V, which could be likened in the real world to the small nations of little significance that don't have any ambitions for world domination. In essence, they are single-city civilizations that do not compete against you or for the victory. Although they have the same capacity for producing units and buildings as normal civilizations, as well as technological and even cultural progress, they cannot build Settler units and thus are (almost) never interested in expansion. They do start with a Settler, who founds the city state on the same tile it spawned at the beginning of the game. Unlike the major civilizations, City-States don't have a military unit right at the beginning of the game.

City-States start neutrally-disposed towards everyone, and how you deal with them is your choice - you can coddle them to improve relations, and eventually make them your friends or even allies; or you can capture them (which the Mongolian civilization is especially good at); or you can just choose to ignore them. However, be mindful that they can be of immense help to you in the game, and also you will need them to achieve a Diplomatic Victory.
