What do you think is the nerdiest (highest research rate) faction in a Total War game?

I'm throwing my hat in for Egypt in Rome II. They get a base 20% research rate as well as being able to build the Library of Alexandria right in their capital. What are your picks, across the entire franchise? I love to play high research rate, so this is half curiosity, half inspiration for my next campaign.

    I quite like the research system in Empire. Any town can have schools. Cities have observatories that aid research and help raise scholars. The scholars specialise and can be assembled in teams in schools to research different subjects. You can get a real nerdfest going to help you slaughter the rest of the world.
