To confirm, by "make this information public", you mean have it depend on known+seen (or known alone without fog of war), in the same manner as the size of foreign cities?

Currently, only a city's owner can routinely see its cultural makeup if nationality is enabled. This information would be useful to other players -- if a foreign city contains many of your citizens, it's worth sending spies to incite it cheaply. A dedicated player could probably maintain a reasonable idea of which cities host "their" people (by tracking conquer and migration messages as they go by), but it's a bit micromanage-y.

It's possible to find this out via diplomats/spies today. But perhaps it would be a good idea to make this information public -- say, display it in the middle-click tooltip ("70% Egyptian / 20% Korean / 10% Pirate") on the main map. (Obviously subject to fog of war.)

What do people think? Is the status quo, having to send out spies to find out cultural makeup, sufficient?
