Culture () is one of the three kinds of Commerce a city can produce. It also determines your borders and can be adjusted along with Research and Espionage. Percentages that appear when hovering on land tiles show how much culture a civilization is exerting on that tile.
Border growth is determined by Culture Level. Border grows by 1 tile in all directions every time a City's accumulated Culture exceeds certain thresholds.
|Level||Border Radius||Defense Bonus||Culture Threshold|
|None||0 Tiles||0%||Used for captured cities, until the resistance ends.|
