Civilization V Customisation Wiki

The Philippines led by Ramon Magsaysay is a custom civilization mod by DuskJockey, with contributions from TPangolin, DarthKyofu, Troller0001, Chrisy15, grant, JFD, Viregel, and danrell.

This mod requires Brave New World, and replaces the City-State of Manila with Taipei.



The Republic of the Philippines is a nation situated in South-East Asia, somewhat near to Taiwan and to the north-east of the Indonesian island of Borneo. Until about 500 years ago, the islands were relatively isolated from the rest of the world. This changed in 1521, when Ferdinand Magellan, a Spanish explorer, came across the modern-day Philippines while trying to sail around the world. Magellan was later killed by the natives, who kept his body as a war trophy. In 1565, the first Spanish settlement was established on the islands, making way for around 350 years of colonial rule for the islands. In the late 19th Century, nationalist and reform movements began in the Philippines among both the natives and the Spanish. In 1898, they proclaimed independence, but were handed over to the USA in the Treaty of Paris. The Filipinos eventually got a home government in 1934, and in 1946, they finally got full independence after the fight against the Japanese in the Second World War. In the 20th Century, the dictator Ferdinand Marcos took power, and through his corrupt regime he deprived the country of a lot of its wealth. Marcos was overthrown almost bloodlessly in 1986, and the power of the Philippine Republic was restored to its people.

Ramon Magsaysay[]

Ramon Magsaysay was the seventh president of the Philippines, ruling from 1953 to 1957, best known for successfully defeating the communist-led Hukbalahap (Huk) movement and his popular appeal.

Dawn of Man[]

"The people cheer for you, Ramon Magsaysay, Idol of the Masses, and president of the Philippine Republic. For thousands of years, the glimmering islands of this land have played host to one of the largest populations in the world, and has become a veritable melting pot for a great diversity of people; fusing together the cultures of Austronesians, Malay, Chinese, Spanish, British and Americans alike. Your leadership served as a beacon for Filipino people, leading them from the darkness of the Second World War to a golden age of markets and military, of art and culture. In life, you served as a model of public service, and in death, you were enshrined as an exceptional patriot.

President Magsaysay, the Filipino people require once again a man of your caliber. Can you defend this beautiful and tranquil homeland against all manner of foe? Can you forge a place for the Philippine Republic through strength of will and nobility of character? Can you build a civilization that can stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "Greetings. I am Ramon Magsaysay, leader of the Filipino people. Respect the laws and dignity of our country, and my people shall do the same with yours."

Defeat: "Though you have completed your conquest of our land, the Filipino spirit remains strong. My people will rise again."
