Okay, I admit 4 is too few to Europe, if we get 60 civs, and we have 4 continents (América, Europe, Africa and Asia)... 60/4=15. So I think Europe should have at maximum 15 civs.
I don't want that, it can have modern nations. As I sugested in other thread it can have Sovietic Union instead of...
I don't think is that ridiculous. Would be nice if civ7 don't have this big modern states as USA, UK, France, Germany, Spain and so on...
I think for Europe would be enouth Rome, Greece, some viking state and the Charlemagne empire. In that way it will give room for others wanted civilizations.

I agree with you, it was poorly design. Because change clothes per era make a understand of history as a linear one, where every one end with smoke suits.
If we just have alt leaders we don't will have this linear evolution issue, because each leader just represent a period of each civ, is not...
But the concept of China, Zhong Guo, 中国 was in the minds of the people even in this periods as Warring states, 3kingdoms, 16 kingdom... and so on.
By chinese philosofy, the China will ever broken and re-united again... That means the comunist china will fall down some day, but the China will...
I don't said that, I said it's anacronic Barbarossa leads Germany because the German state just become a thing in the XIX century.
I speak about the Nazi when @Zaarin compare the chinese and german nationalism.
Of course every kind of high nationalism sucks!
German nationalism is always a bad thing, it can lead to Nazism.
As you can see in this video, even Angela Merkel rejects the German patriotic symbols because she know how the nationalism is a terrible thing for germans.
I don't think so, I think the concept of China (中国) is so ancient as Xia dinasty. 2205-1818 a.C.
The difference is the name Zhong Guo is very generic, who just means central country. That's the why any dynasty who rules the territory see it's self as China.
So the Qin Shi Huang claim to be...
The real German state is the German history after the unification of Bismarck and the king Wilhelm II in the palace of Versailles.
Before that day there is no Germany at all.
About Eurocentrism, you are right, we need to be cautelous before choice the German leader, because we need to avoid to...
I still think if Civ7 have Frederick the Great he should lead Prussia and not Germany.
But, if we want to extrapol the meaning of be german in this game, why not have Teodorico (king of Visigodos) as leader of Germany?
Lenin should be a nice shot to lead Sovietic Union. And since the Byzantium and Rome are two civs of the same society, I don't see problems to civ 7 have Russia and Sovietic Union as two separate civs. Maybe Russia can have the Cossacks and Sovietic Union Tanks as Unique Unit.
The only problem...
Charlemagne should have it's own civ. Maybe the Franks or the Holy Roman Empire. and Maria Theresa should lead Austria.
I think just Bismarck can leads Germany, since the concept of Germany is a very modern one.
By the way it was a very bad choice Barbarrosa as lead of Germany.
What can be cool...
