I haven't looked through the code to see how feasible this is, but...

perhaps adding (as a server option of course) a production penalty might
be a solution. 
Ex.: up to a certain number of cities, a chariot, for example, costs X.
If I would build Y% more cities, then a chariot would cost X+Y to build
(or whatever algorithm you choose, you could also make it discrete

Instead of all production, you might target just units, or all military
units or maybe just settlers.

I look at this in more of a playability context, rather than a realism
context, but I'm sure the realists can rationalize reasons why this might
be (corruption, industrial bloat, etc.)
