I want to know about any in depth civ building games that have lots of areas to focus on, such as culture, war, politics, religion, population, etc.

Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization - you have to work to maintain levels of science, culture, military strength and the contentment of your civilian population while developing your farms and mines to support your culture's infrastructure. You have changes in government types, raids by neighboring nations, the occassional war and the discovery of new lands. Does that sound like it fits the bill for you?

While I agree that through the ages is excellent I'm not sure Its what you are looking for since you said an in depth civ building game. This is actually a civ light game My son and I can finish a 2 player game in about 3 hours which is short for a civ game. I also find that you don't build that many different things. I never feel satisfied that I really built up a civilization. Other than those points its a great game. It over priced for the bits you get but its not overpriced for its value as a game.

There are several geeklists that address this very issue. For instance:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/34356

I will also chime in in favor of Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization.

My favorite in this genre though, but perhaps not what you were thinking of, is Twilight Imperium (Third Edition).

Happy gaming.
