Follow-up Comment #2:

Re-adding to 2.4.0 release: feature now does something noticeable (as of patch
#3311).

Still racking my brain for an alternative name to citizens. I may have to
give up and move the existing use of citizens (to mean city population units
in general) to some other term. Not enough words!

Follow-up Comment #3, patch #3015 (project freeciv):

I wonder if it wouldn't be helpful get away from using the word citizen
altogether since it seems to be tied to multiple concepts and has other
legal/emotional meanings in other contexts.  More descriptive if perhaps less
flavorful replacements could include city size and population unit.

In some cases (city) inhabitants With the new citizenship concept it's clear
that we cannot call all city population points citizens (of city owning
nation) as some of them simply are not.

Then again, they work and pay taxes to city owning nation, so maybe they are
citizens of it. So what this new feature is about? Ethnicity?

Well, you can have a substantial group living and working in a state but not
be citizens (or first-class citizens), if citizenship is restricted by
birth/descent. Also slaves, etc. However:

 So what this new feature is about? Ethnicity?
It's something like that, and I've thought about using those words. Whether or
not these people are legally/constitutionally equal, it seems that when the
chips are down, they're treated differently. (In many ways this is quite a
dark feature, depending on what we do with it.)

How about using a term like cultural identity? Rules ranging from no
assimilation at all to quick assimilation can all use that term without
becoming unrealistic.

Follow-up Comment #1:

Postponing to 2.5: this feature does not yet have much effect on gameplay in
2.4, and this seems unlikely to change, so there's not really anything to
document.

(We may still want to work out what terminology we're using instead of
citizens before it escapes, though.)

There's a new game concept of citizens. It'll need some documentation.

word like nationality will be better.)
