Thank you for not making Anarchist Spain do a world conquer and then use the occupation tool to core it as an achievement, it was my big fear coming in to this!

The one that leaps out to me as most interesting is most likely the Portugese China achievement. Does "All Chinese States" include Hong Kong and Guangzhouwan?
play it, sam.PNG

Casablanca is my favorite film, I love you guys for this one :D
Very funny achievements and also this time less world conquering stuff, very nice. With maybe the exception of "We will Rock you" where you need to own, instead of occupy Gibraltar.

Also interesting your stayed on 475 casualties.
@CameraGenie I kinda agree with you. It shows flaws of the game, where it would be great if they don't exist. But they do exist, like there will always exist flaws in a game. Personally I think it is less a celebration of the flaws, but more an acknowledgment that they exist and can be abused.
