We got "Civil Service" (in my french civ4, "Administration"). But to be able to build macemen, we need "Mecanisation".
So I put the research in this way. We can have it after 7/8 turns.
We must think about what to research for what after that (or if you are against Mecanisation).
No, Persia is giving us Machinery for Civil Service, as we decided a while ago. So we should direct research towards something else... perhaps Paper? That leads to Education, Liberalism, etc.... Persia went for Feudalism, so it will let us trade more with them.
Either way, we need to decide by next turn, since when our Anarchy ends we'll start accumulating beakers.
I vote for Paper.
