    Okay, fine. Since apparently any POD is acceptable:

    GM, please rename my country to the Bolivarian Republic of New Gluahiri

    We are a race of aliens who invaded Latin America from the planet of Gluahiri in 1700. I also expect you to give us weaponry and numerical numbers far in excess of anything the puny humans have, since we are an extremely advanced civilization and breed like rabbits.

    At least you actually put effort this time. If only your effort had amounted to anything meaningful your three-year hiatus from IOT wouldn't be remembered as a respite.

    Edit: Ohai Bsmith. Calming down.

    I just lost a bet. I had put five quid down on you saying something like, "Friggin' time, how does it work?" or "I don't adhere to your statist capitalist system of being a decent person to people."

    Sorry, I saw Tumblr and realized I'm a grown man who doesn't read gifs made by "chaoskid2010".

    So, um, I do not think this particular China even needs to be industrialized to produce more than anyone else. In fact, an industrialised China in the 19th Century would probably beat the closest competitor by an order of magnitude. Assuming that India remained preindustrial and making up numbers in a vaguely plausible way.

    it is a known fact that in TK games "IC" is pretty much all economic potential of the country, not necessarily industry. So let's stop.

    This.

    And if you actually go and look at historical GDP for, say, 1820, China is being nerfed here if anything.

    GDP doesn't take into account population. Do GDP per capita and get back to me.

    IC is analogous to GDP not GDP per capita.

    Just admit you're wrong and move on.

    Not really, because population is mostly irrelevant in most IOTs, except occasionally with regards to manpower, but not really with regards to the economy.
