The rules I recall being mentioned at various points are: no overlap of
cities (I believe classical civilisations may be excepted from this);
geographically and culturaly defined; represent a whole 'nation' or
'civilisation' not just one period in the history thereof.
A lot of these came up repeatedly in the debate a whileback about a
nazi-germany ruleset, which ended up as a huge trolling match. Not
something like that again, please ;o)...
