Great tile improvement. Constructed by a Great Merchant.
The Customs House is a great improvement for civs that want more Gold. It is best to build it in cities that have nearby luxury resources and the most advanced economic buildings available to maximize their Gold output.
A Customs House is a governmental building where taxes are paid on a country's imported and exported goods. It ensures that the government gets its cut (or "fair share," if you prefer) of profits on every cargo moving through a harbor. Given the amount of money involved, the opportunity for corruption is unlimited. Throughout history customs officials have not been famous for resisting temptation.
