I noticed that nuking capitols doesn't destroy the capitols. Does it even hurt? I have so far always nuked cities that were far away and haven't been able to 'probe the perimeter' following the attack.

When you nuke a capital it just destroys it and all of its defenses, but when playing against an AI they usually have another defense army by the next turn anyways. When you need 1 more capital for a domination victory, nuke it, and get some artillery and attack once, should let you walk right in and take the capital

Compared to the other Civ games, nukes have really been toned down. The computer in Civs 1-3 had this infuriating tendency to just go nuke-happy for hundreds of years at the end of a game. =p

Pretty sure the nukes in this game annihilate the defenses, as well as all buildings.

In my experience nuking a city other than a capitol will completly destroy it, and nuking a capitol will reset its population size to 1, all defences units and buildings will be destroyed except for the palace, so you can walk right in and capture it.

it takes the city down 10 population sizes
if you nuke it when it is size 10 or lower it will destroy it

reading is fundamental

Just don't have any units in the surrounding vicinity, they get wiped out as well...silly mushroom clouds.

Consult the tech tree so you're not wasting research on stuff you dont want. Then build the wonder
