In classical Greek mythology, Hyperboria was a land of many, many resources, situated in the Arctic Circle.
On this map, you begin with walls, some houses and standard villagers/scout/king/TC etc. There are plentiful resources and no nasty predators. Scout the map early and you'll be able to win over a few of the natives in their huts (although computer players won't do this, so this map is most fairly played on multiplayer - unless you're a noobish player like me!) There is lots and lots of eye candy, some ponds and many strategic choke points. There are also a great many relics to collect.
