Thanks to some great ideas from our players, we decided to split big countries into smaller ones, to make the areas more playable. USA, Canada, Brazil, Russia, China and Australia all got split, adding 37 new 'countries'. For all game purposes, they are separate countries, however, we decided to keep the original county's flag and name, to underline that these are, basically, just regions of one big country.

In the process, we used official country divisions as a guide, only making a few alterations (like combining Victoria and Tasmania in Australia). Unfortunately, most official regions have incredibly dull names (especially China, where all regions are named Southeast, Northwest etc), so we deviated in some cases, with Texas, Ontario and British Columbia, for example, which actually contain more states than the name suggests.

All population and income are also based on actual numbers.

Additionally, the countries in the 'Capture selected country' Victory condition has been changed to: United Kingdom, Germany, India, Iran, Indonesia, Nigeria, Mexico, Cuba and Brazil: Southeast.

I understand how the income and reinforcement are based on actual numbers but i was wondering how they differed from the origional values

If you mean former countries and current countries, then there's almost no difference in reinforcements (since city populations remained the same). Total income went up, since originally it had been lowered for big countries.

That makes since. I got creamed against a guy from china and couldn't figure out how he could mass produce like that in such a small area with tank general. Any way why was India not broken up? It has smaller land mass but it has similar population density to china.

I decided to would be nice to leave one big country - also, India is rather small in terms of area and never seemed very problematic during games (unlike Russia or USA, for example).

I haven't been around for a while, don't really have the time, but I just noticed something: Now that Alaska is a country on its own, you might want to add the actual capital Juneau to the map as well. Yeah, until five minutes ago I also thought Anchorage would be the capital, but it isn't. Same would apply to many other regions (e.g. USA: Pacific, the actual capitals would be Sacramento in California, Olympia in Washington and Salem in Oregon), but Alaska would need it the most. And USA: South could do with Jackson, MI, Mobile, AL or Montgomery, AL, just a second city, so that Memphis doesn't feel so lonely anymore. Actually I've never really understood why New Orleans was delegated to Texas. But that's a totally different story. All I'm saying: Alaska needs its capital.

Oh man... you always know how to find work for me... I'm away at the moment, but once back I'll consider moving the capitals to the appropriate cities.

This may just be adding to your workload, but using http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Table_of_United_States_Metropolitan_Statistical_Areas (basically cities in an area plus suburbs) may be a better way of determining which cities to include for less densely populated regions in the US. For example, while the population of Washington DC is only 600,000, the MSA is around 5.5 million. The same goes for Atlanta--only half a million in the city while there are 5 million in the MSA. The Nashville MSA is actually larger than the Memphis MSA and the Birmingham MSA is almost the same size.

In the US we think of "cities" differently than in the rest of the world. Pretty much everywhere else a city starts where the farms end, but here most people live in suburbs which skews city size. Anyway, sorry to increase your workload, but it is something else to think about.

Yes, I was a bit uncertain which standard to use, and actually used urban population numbers for many cities (LA, for example). I might end up adjusting most population numbers to metro population, this would make more sense.
