Here is a code for the Atlas of War DLC for one lucky duder. I thought I'd be nice and give it away since I have the PS3 version. It came with the strategy guide and is basically another samurai schema. Kinda lame since there is three of them in the game. Anyways enjoy!

Perhaps you need some banks and other economy driven buildings and tech. Big civilizations doesn't mean you always bring in the money, America runs on a deficit almost every year. The money you get per turn isn't based on your GNP but taxes and such that the government takes in. But if you are going to diplo victory I'm assuming you have no need for big army so get your cities to produce wealth. "
That's exactly what I was going for but clearly I messed up somehow. All of my cities have been upgraded with economic buildings every chance I could get. I only have three workers and two military units.
@TheMustacheHero: Ya, I understand that but even after the tiles are improved by my workers, my city isn't taking in any of the resources. For instance: I have a gold and aluminum near my city but the citizens are only bringing in the aluminum which is what I don't understand.

If I have an aluminum tile and a gold tile near my city, will my citizens only work on one of them? There's so much information to process in this game that it's overwhelming. Don't get me wrong though. This is my first Civ game and I'm loving it so far.
