Civ IV Colonization - Constitution

After having reached a rebel sentiment of minimum 50%, you may choose to declare independence from Europe. At this point you will be asked to write a constitution. The constitution contains your stance on the issues of slavery, elections, natives, land security and religion.

You don't t have to take any specific action for this to happen, as you're automatically presented with a number of questions upon declaring independence.

There are two choices for each category. Each stance provides a specific bonus, and so you have to determine which bonus is most suitable for the game you're playing.
