I think only the largest countries will have more than 20 states. It probably wont take too long to go between everyone when they know what they want. Probably not more than 10 minutes after most wars.
Player A starts picking.
B uses the opportunity to go afk, "toilet break".
Meanwhile A is finished, B still afk.
B picks, is finished. C's turn.
C write "one sec, phone call"...
10 minutes would already be toooo long, in multiplayer games those 10 minutes could easily become a never-ending nightmare. But again, they are heavily testing multiplayer and it will be more important than ever. They'll run into all kinds of problems and will find solutions for that. Our speculation is probably completely unwarranted.
