Here's an extraction from the more-general "fascism" patch posted earlier,
which contains only the code for adding a Fascism GOVERNMENT TYPE.  I will
also shortly post an extraction which adds the "fascism" new UNITS AND
     There is little in this patch that could be considered inflammatory
(based on previous discussions), considering that fascism was an important
government type in history.  At least three European nations had fascist
governments in their history, and several other nations throughout the
world have had governments with fascist tendencies.  The main exception is
the use of the Nazi swastika symbol for the fascist government type, which
we will have to change if this government type is approved for inclusion
into the main freeciv distribution.  Please bear with that swastika
symbol for the time being.  Juan Cortes and I aren't going to
design a new fascism symbol until it's clear that the fascism government
type would otherwise be accepted. 
     Also, please note that this government type was designed under
freeciv 1.10, BEFORE Reputation/treaties/etc. had begun to be implemented.  
I want to ultimately incorporate Reputation/etc. restrictions on Fascism
in a final version.  Please see discussion on the "fascism patch" topic in
[Freeciv-Dev] for possibilities as to how Reputation/etc. penalties will
be implemented.  Please do also post your own ideas, of course.  I still
consider Fascism (the government type) very much a work in progress.  The
one feature that is "etched in stone" is the defining feature of Fascism
in freeciv game terms, the +1 resource per tile bonus (for squares already
generating at least 1 resource).
     Alright, so here's the government definition, consisting of a bunch
of patches to the necessary files in the data directory.  The attached
file "small.xpm" is for the government symbol.   Again, please realize
that the swastika symbol in small.xpm would be changed later (it's just
there as a "place holder" if you wish to try out the patch and the game
balks if it can't find a fascism symbol).
