Civilization V Customisation Wiki

The People's Republic of Angola, led by Jonas Savimbi, is a custom civilization created by JakeWalrusWhale and RawSasquatch.

This mod requires Brave New World and Gods & Kings.



The establishment of a Portuguese colony on south west Africa in 1575 led to the further take-over of land from kingdoms such as Kongo, Ndongo, and Lunda, reaching the modern borders of Angola in 1891. In 1975, unfair treatment and lack of moderisation saw Angola become independant under a communist government, but also saw the start of a civil war between the groups that had been pushing for freedom from Portugal, a war which continued on and off until 2002. Angola is currently amoung the fastest growing economies and has a high natural wealth but struggles wth income equality and standard of living.

Jonas Savimbi[]

Jonas Savimbi, in full Jonas Malheiro Savimbi was an Angolan revolutionary politician and military leader who founded and led the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA). UNITA waged a guerrilla war against Portuguese colonial rule from 1966 to 1974 then confronted the People's Movement for the Liberation of Angola during the Angolan Civil War.

Dawn of Man[]

Your journey to victory has begun, oh glorious Jonas Savimbi! Death to the MPLA! Born in a small town in Portuguese controlled Angola, after obtaining a scholarship in Portugal, you climbed in student circles for Angolan independence, seeking a leadership position in the MPLA by joining the MPLA Youth. Rebuffed, you UNITA and began his career as an anti-Portuguese guerrilla fighter. Fighting Portugal, the FNLA and MPLA, you eventually drew the attention of powerful international actors, and were trained in Maoist guerilla practices, which led to one of the most effective guerrilla leaders of the 20th century. Renouncing the support of communism, you sought U.S. backing, using your skills as a leader and talent in speaking seven languages to become one of the most vocal anti-communists of the Third World. But after surviving more than a dozen assassination attempts, your luck would finally run out, dieing in battle in the province of your birth.


Leaderscene by RawSasquatch

Commander Savimbi, your resoluteness and intellect is needed in Angola, more than ever. Its people cry out as humanitarian crises grip the nation you loved. Can you stand and fulfil the promise of Angola, not repeating past mistakes? Can you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?

Introduction: "I'm Jonas Savimbi, and I'm fighting to make Angola a true democratic nation. Are you here to join me in arms, brother?"

Defeat: "Even when all seems hopeless, I will continue to fight for Angola's freedom. You'll have to shoot me dead to stop me from fighting you, even if I'm the last brother standing."

T-55 (Tank)

Instead of dying, T-55s are instead captured by the enemy. Angolan units will have a combat bonus in territories of Civs that have a captured T-55. Recapturing T-55s grant Golden Age Points. T-55s can only be reclaimed by Angola once, next time a T-55 runs out of health, they will die.

Diamang Mine (Stoneworks)

Unlike the Stoneworks it replaces, it has no requirements. Trade Deals involving luxuries in city limits have a chance to grant extra gold, production, workers, or combat units. Units are trained faster for each luxury in this city that is traded away.
