Actually, they are: the spanish city list is the biggest one (200
cities (and I want to expand it further!)). I also re-did the
chilean city list, the argentinian one (which was improved later by
someone else [*]), and I expanded the catalan city list (which was also
improved later by Markus). 

I also created the fantasy nation "Hegemonian", based on the Human
Hegemony, as described in the Hyperion novels by Dan Simmons, but it's
stuck by the freeze in the nations list.

[*] I just checked, and seems that this improvement over
argentine.ruleset wasn't incorporated into CVS.
