As matters currently stand I (Peoples' Republic of China) and Germania have formed and alliance that -- generally -- divides the map pretty nearly in half. Counter history, we sit in large part to map West while our foes sit to the east.
As a random map, though, there's a lot of jumbling that will definitely require some bloodshed to sort out. Soon, I'll be able to share an image of the German City of Nabburg which sits at the end of a peninsula that connects directly to my territory. I now know well how the people on Formosa must feel!
Turn two is in the books. Peace remains the rule, but there are a whoooole lot of armies peeking at one another over shared borders.
