Sorry if it looks messy, but I cannot preview, edit or remove my posts because I'm using an online proxy. The Gaming HQ website often doesn't load on my computer without it for some reason.

EDIT: fixed it now, with a different computer.

Goldmine!

The bottom 2, and the one second from the bottom with the stars are all kosovo.

Democratic Kosovo, Communsit Kosovo, and Authoritarian Kosovo are all there.

INDIA

COMUNIST: Indian Communist Party 1920/25 to Present

NOTE: The actual emblem seems to be this;

Also seen here;

However, this may just be a contemporary phenomenon. Any Indian gamers out there who know their national history?

FASCIST: Provisional Government of Free India (Azad Hind) 1943 to 1945

AUTHORTARIAN: The Mughal Empire 1526 to 1858

OR

The Maratha Empire 1674 to 1820

DEMOCRATIC: The Republic of India 1947 to Present

said on Jan 21, 2010 at 11:02 AM

IRAN

COMMUNIST Persian Socialist Soviet Republic (aka: Soviet Republic of Gilan)1920 to 1921

FASCIST The Iranian National-Socialist Workers group (aka SUMKA) 1953 to Present?

AUTHORITARIAN Imperial State of Iran / Persia 1925 to 1975

DEMOCRATIC The Interim Government of Iran 1979 to Present

OR The Islamic Republic of Iran 1980 to Present

said on Jan 22, 2010 at 08:04 AM

Great findings! But I would not count the current flag of Iran for Democratic. Government islamism is more of a modern phenomenon.

No he's saying the Interim Government (1979-1980 not till the present) Flag should be the democratic flag, which makes sense as it is a base tricolor without Islamic or any other religious or ideological markings.

SYRIA

COMMUNIST Syrian Communist Party 1944 to Present

OR Arab Socialist Ba'ath Syria 1963 to 1972

FASCIST Syrian Social Nationalist Party 1932 to Present

AUTHORITARIAN Kingdom of Syria 8th March to 24th July 1920

DEMOCRATIC Republic of Syria 1932 to 1958

P.S.: Comrade Moderators/game-creators; Are there any special countries you would like us to look into, just so we don't work needlessly? A list by continent? Or by culture? Or a of your own choosing?

said on Jan 24, 2010 at 01:27 AM

LEBANON

COMMUNIST The Lebanese Communist Party 1924 to Present.

FASCIST The Lebanese Social Democratic Party (aka Kataeb Party) 1936 to Present.

Note. You may find it interesting that the SSNP from above is gaining stronger support in Lebanon at the moment.

AUTHORITARIAN the Mejlis (Administrative council, governed the territory until establishment of French Colonial control) 1918 to 1919?

DEMOCRATIC Republic of Lebanon 1943 to Present.

P.S. Out of curiosity, in MHI such titles where used as Nationalist Spain or Communist China. Would this be something that would appear in MHII? Or will it just be the one name? We know civil wars can happen, and while it is ironically appropriate to have both countries be listed under the same name, it might be a tad bland. And to have titles such as Democratic United Kingdom just do not sit nicely on the tongue.

Would a title for the nation be an idea? E.G. Austria

COMMUNIST Austrian Peoples Republic or Peoples Republic of Austria

FASCIST Austrian State or State of Austria

AUTHORITARIAN Austrian Kingdom or Kingdom of Austria

DEMOCRATIC Austrian Republic or Republic of Austria

Of course this is not perfect, as it doesnt fit with the Kuomintang or the British Constitutional Monarchy. Have the developers thought about anything along these lines? Can any questions be answered?

said on Jan 28, 2010 at 12:29 PM

Cambodia

COMMUNIST Democratic Kampuchea 1975 to 1979

OR People's Republic of Kampuchea 1979 to 1993

FASCIST State of Kampuchea March 1945 to October 1945

AUTHORITARIAN Kingdom of Cambodia 1953 to 1970

DEMOCRATIC Khmer Republic 1970 to 1975
