I retired your fortress and loaded the legends into world viewer.
The dark fortress nearby has inside or underground :
1114 goblins
800 trolls
137 humans
6 elves
8 dwarves
1 demon

The towers around feature each +/- 100 goblins inside or underground

So in the end you have a really huge goblin population on your embark, goblin site are usually generating heavy slowdown in adventure mode due to their overpopulation (not seen on other civ sites) and i see with that save that it's not really better in fortress mode.

I'm not sure if there's a multiplier hardcoded, but i noticed in all generated world goblin site has more than 4 or 5 times the amount of population every other civilisation has at any point of time (small history or long one).

Could be related to the lag in 0007722.

@Robsoie: I already ran a fortress with MORE units on the map and the FPS were correct.

Goblins always overpopulate my worlds.
