In Civilization 5, each city you build increases the cost of new social policies by some percentage, based on the current map size.

This question mentions +30% for duel sized maps. I'm assuming this is correct?

What are the percentages for other map sizes?

This is taken straight from the XML files included with Civ V: (Updated for the June 2011 patch, where all of them were reduced by 50%)

 <Type>WORLDSIZE_DUEL</Type> 
  <NumCitiesPolicyCostMod>15</NumCitiesPolicyCostMod> 


  <Type>WORLDSIZE_TINY</Type> 
  <NumCitiesPolicyCostMod>15</NumCitiesPolicyCostMod> 


  <Type>WORLDSIZE_SMALL</Type> 
  <NumCitiesPolicyCostMod>15</NumCitiesPolicyCostMod> 


  <Type>WORLDSIZE_STANDARD</Type> 
  <NumCitiesPolicyCostMod>15</NumCitiesPolicyCostMod> 


  <Type>WORLDSIZE_LARGE</Type> 
  <NumCitiesPolicyCostMod>10</NumCitiesPolicyCostMod> 


  <Type>WORLDSIZE_HUGE</Type> 
  <NumCitiesPolicyCostMod>7.5</NumCitiesPolicyCostMod> 

So it's 15% for all but the largest two map sizes.
