Here's an updated map. Nations still needed:
Silverdream, when the other nations are put in, I'll need you to set up the colonies. Again, don't go huge on the size.
Remember, where your country is determines what climate and what exports you'll be dealing with. For example: New Sweden is right on the equator, which means their land is predominantly jungle and difficult to farm. Therefore, he'll need to do some heavy importing of items normally obtained in more temperate zones.
The Gelid Union is far north where the ground is difficult to break. Farming will be difficult for them as well.
Before you attack someone, make sure you determine what products they export and if you need them or not.
Does this make sense or am I making this more complicated than it needs to be?
HeavyFishCannon, you're good on the bot-dog. Its experimental right now, so no spamming them.
Am I missing anyone on the map? I'll add your cities soon.
