        Information available in the Embassy was controlled by the game
difficulty level in Civ1 and Civ2.
        Information available included:
        Ruler name.
        AI attributes. (Perfectionist, Civilized, Warlike, etc)
        Capital city.
        Treasury size.
        Foreign Affairs.  (At War w/ any nations, Peace, etc)
        Technologies.  (Up to 8, not sure entirely how they were chosen).

        Total number of military units was also available information, but
no breakdown.

        The Demographics report would list the leader in each category if
you had an embassy with them.

        Embassies also popped up a dialog box on the turn Technology was
acquired, describing the method.  (Aztecs get Metallurgy from English,
English get Navigation from Great Library, Indians Research Rocketry, etc.)

        Why should this information be so easily available?  Investigate
City then becomes a less useful Spy action.
