Purely out of curiosity (I'm no programmer) but I would have always thought that as the number of tags decreases going into the later game (in most scenarios) that the stutter found in the late game would be reduced since there's not as many calculations? I just find it a little galling when I get to the last 20 or so years of a game and it starts to grind to an almost halt and capped out a core on my i7 9700k.
I think that the increase in the number of armies compensates that effect. Each big nation in the late game has to make more decisions (and probably more complex ones) than the sum of the smaller nations in the early game.
