6. Set Trade Dial
Each player counts all of the trade symbols in the eight
squares of their capital’s city outskirts and then sets the trade
dial (the large outer dial) on their civilization sheet to that total.
For example, if a total of three trade symbols are in the outskirts
of a player’s capital, the player sets their trade dial to "3."
Note: Players collect trade again on the first turn of the game.
Democracy: You collect 2 extra trade each turn.
I would say you get the +2 trade from Democracy only once, on the first turn of the game.
