Hello everyone,

I have just created an Ethiopian nation with 8 leaders and 28 cities,
but after finishing I read that no new nations will be added to FreeCiv
because of the hardcoded limit of 64 nations.

But I wonder why these fantasy nations (Mordor, Dunedain) are included
while realistic nations like Cubans, Sumerians, Assyrians, etc. are
kept out, as it makes no sense to me that Mordors use tanks, bombers

Maybe someone wants to create a fantasy modpack. But I can't understand
why they're included by default.

And what about Bavarians, Silesians and Catalans? I understand that many
people enjoy playing with these, but wouldn't it be better to
replace all these 'nations' that never have been a souvereign
state by ones that were? At least until this hardcoded limit
has been removed?

And another question: I found a flag of Ethiopia somewhere on the web,
can't remember where. I shrinked it to 65x50 and saved it as a PNG.
When I upload it to the FTP server, do i violate copyright? If yes,
can anyone tell me if there is a flag on the web which isn't protected?
Or do I have to paint one from scratch?

Best regards,
