1. American prosperity is due to the fact that its troops could simultaneously work as farmers,woodcutters, miners, and merchants while fighting.

2. An airbase can fit 10 bombers, even though a bomber is the size of an airbase.

3. An army can be encircled inside enemy territory and still survive with a supply wagon. Armies were trained in the art of alchemy, and could convert the ground into food and ammunition.

4. Your artillery can continously fire at an enemy building for an hour and you will not lose any resources.

5. Once planes are built, they do not need oil to work. Each airplane's fuel tank contains an alchemist that converts air into oil.

6. Troops can make their own boats and cross oceans.

7. After the ancient age, all countries had a senate

8. The US army was led by a CEO during WWII

9. Fisherman can survive in the middle of the ocean

44. Infantrymen can run three times faster than clubmen and and slingers despite carrying at least 50 pounds more of gear.

45. A general can conjure up half-visible decoys who disappear into nothingness when "killed."

46. A general can also make his standing army of 150 men turn invisible long enough to get to the enemy capital.

47. Forts and Towers fired with nobody in them, despite the fact that automated turrets hadn't been invented.

48. No matter how powerful your nation, you can only have eight cities with only 30 buildings each at a maximum, unless you steal more from other nations.

49. No matter how powerful your nation, your population can never be greater than 200, unless you domesticate peacocks or build a roman statue.

50. There are no natural disasters. Ever.

53. Mountains contain unlimited metal, but nothing esle.

#119: It's strange that they gave the Soviets the nuclear sub; after all, America's submarines were superior. I once heard that "the Cold War was won underwater" (though also in space).

130. The Aztecs are still alive, abd thriving in 2015, modern technology in the Enlightenment age had created clones of extict Nations.
