    They also have the disadvantage of being a relatively recent creation and having a rather negative public image in the West. I'd take them over no Central Asian civ, but I feel like there are a good dozen better options from Central Asia. That Central Asian civs are going to be obscure to Western audiences just comes with the territory. (Pashto is a really cool language, though, so if there were some way to create a good Pashtun civ I'd be all for it.)

    I would greatly prefer Afghanistan over the Timurids. Lots of great history to draw from.

    The Iron Pagoda could be a perfect UU for Jurchen/Jin and the Bannermen UU for Manchu/Qing.

    IIRC there are some small differences between old Jurchen language and Manchu language, but they are very similar. Anyway I am not the language expert here, that's a question up to @Zaarin.

    Also, to my knowledge, the Tungusic-speaking groups are very dominant in Manchuria, every minority ethnic group in modern Manchuria (that is, besides Chinese/Russians/Koreans) speaks a Tungusic language. However these groups are all culturally different, they could just adopted a dominate language as lingua franca of the region. (For instance, the Sibe people, whose languages belonged to the Tungusic languages, are believed to have a Xianbei origin, and the Xianbeis spoke some Mongolic language.)

    I'm not an expert on Tungusic, but as far as I recall Jurchen and Manchu are different but very closely related languages.

    What would be the most obscure North American (non Native) civ that could appear in the game?

    Most obscure is kind of subjective, but candidates might include:

    * Vermont
    * Suriname
    * Many islands in the Caribbean including the Republic of Dominica, St. Kitts and Nevis, and Grenada

    Honestly any non-Native North American civ south of Mexico would be pretty obscure.

    It should be the Replubic of Los Altos, a briefly independent 19th century central-american nation on the current southern bordering area between Guatemala and the mexican state of Chiapas.

    The Republic of Indian Stream I linked above was smaller albeit lasting a little longer (three years versus two months). The Republic of Madawaska would be another candidate.

    Out of curiosity, what is the point of this exercise? :p

    I can't see any of them being added to Civ, but the various ephemeral republics and proposed states are an interesting part of history.
