That's usually how I envision them. I don't look at Armagh and think I'm only dealing with them. They are in the game to represent the entirety of Ireland, not even just Northern Ireland, which wasn't really a thing until basically 100 years ago anyway. As with Brussels I picture them as a minor nation of Belgium. Wait so would it be hard to depict Pokrovka and Attila's Camp as city-states in the future? I feel like somehow that would require an overhaul of the existing tribal villages and barbarian interaction in the past games, and separate tribes into either peaceful or more aggressive. I can see that for Civ 7 as an enhanced the Barbarians Clans game mode, but implemented into the base game.
