    How about the Internal brute production? How about an accurate analysis. Since the base of the discussion is literacy, I guess Monaco and Andorra are better choises at all.

    Economically, Brazil only rivalizes with Mexico in certain aspects. Chile is not the main ecomonical force in Latin America, maybe not even the second one.

    Please, guys, human development is not always the same thing as strong economy. If so, we'd never put China on the game, and that would me a mistake, wouldn't it?

    dude, I lived, studied and analyzed Chile. I cab assure that it is the most economically powerful. Brazil's brute thing is only due to its size, but its an economic wreck. of all the latin american ones, chile is the most sound.

    not just literacy, I mean actual economics and such, brazil is a wreck, chile is great and still going.

    Of course its due to its size. =)

    If we consider things that way, Monaco and Andorra must be on the list

    Was it CIV 3 or Civ 4 that had the game where there were lots of civs in their correct starting position. Included small civs... does anyone else remember this? And how come the world map isn't an option with Warlords? Even if I pull it up in warlords, it makes me play by the old Civ 4 rules; ie: No great wall.

    I remember, but I guess it used to be loaded as a scenarium, ain't that?

    It would be wonderfull to play with all the civs at the same time in an even larger map of the world as we know.

    About Brazil and Chile, I made a research on wikipedia about PIB (Internal Brute Product.

    Down, the results...


    Statistics

    Aquisitive Power (world)
    10 - Brasil 1.701,183
    44 - Chile 212,671

    Nominal Internal Brute Product (world)
    10 - Brasil 1.067,706
    40 - Chile 145,205

    Aquisitive Power equity (prev. 2007) (world) - in this one Chile did better
    57 - Chile 13.804
    73 - Brasil 9.503


    Nominal Internal Brute Product per capita (so close)
    54 - Brasil 6,571
    55 - Chile 6,272


    Latino American Countries per Nominal Internal Brute Product (not even near)
    1 Brasil 1,083,198
    2 México 846,782

    i really wish you had read my last post now.

    are you happy? brazil has a better internal brute thing, BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN ITS ECONOMY IS NEITHER MORE STABLE OR STRONGER.

    let the record state that sebiche is not from chile.

    Not at all. Why the question?

    I read your post, and I guess its happening a common misunderstood of concepts. Life quality means not the same thing as strong economy. China has a strong economy, ancient Egypt also had it with a slavery-strucuted society.

    Stability is important, but the only countries that are not developing, nowadays (in fact, the last 10 years), important archievements in economical stability are Venezuela and Bolivia, for option, and Argentina, because of its economical colapse in 2002 (but even them are recovering due to a responsible fiscal policy).

    Strong economy doesn't mean social justice. USA is the strongest economy in the entire world, and thats not because of its literacy level or low poverty.

    I know it doesn't mean the same thing. Don't you insult me.

    As with the USA thing, I'll have to disagree. The world's strongest economy is that of the EUROPEAN UNION

    thats right, with their new collectivized GDP system, they have by far the strongest, largest and more powerful economy in the world.

    The European Union is not a united government, but a Confederation. They have voted down a unified "European" constitution a couple times, if I recall correctly.

    Now, if we recognize the European Union for what it is, the new German Empire, then the Forth Reich has the largest economy in the world. Don't believe me? The "euro" currency was based entirely around the German bans--the head EU bank is in Munich, if I'm not mistaken--and the "capital" of the EU is in Brussels, Belgium...a territory that has an unusual propensity for falling under German occupation. The Germans just put it there to fool you.

    My only debate about that is, is austria part of eastern europe, western or southern? it has been very confusing after the term "central european" died of. But if you put it in the Austria-Hungary term then i might say that there eastern european.

    Don't get me wrong, even though i want poland in i to think that austria would be in, before poland get's it's chance.

    And i think ukraine has to be added before brazil does. Second of all brazil has been a part of portugal for a long time in history. < which brings back to the question, why isn't portugal in? it had the oldest and longest colonies from it's old empire in known history.
    Oh yes Sebiche where do you live? don't need exact details just the country.

    I don't think Chile has the biggest economy but you could certainly make an argument thats its the biggest and best in relationship to its size. This obviously has an effect which is it has the highest quality of life in Latin America.
    However, lets be realistic. The makers of Civ are going to for sales. Chile only has a population of around 16 million, compare that to Brazil, Argentina, even Colombia, Peru, and Venezuela. For that reason i dont think (if there was ever going to be one) that Chile would be the S.A Civ. Although I would obviously love it :) Also, i dont think many Chileans are going to play with any other S.A civ other than Chile, even if it is a S.A Union, again, there will be exceptions but in general they wont.

    I think they will give it to Brasil simply because of the population size (sadly they think about the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$)

    I would call Austria, due to its territorial holdings in Eastern Europe, an East European country. I specifically say "Austria" and not "Austria-Hungary" becuase the latter refers to a small part of Austria's history, when the country could have easily earned the title of sick man of Europe had the Ottomans not been even worse off. It's a fudge, I know. I would call it Austria in the game, but still have, say, Budapest, in the city list. But that's just me.

    Poland I think should be considered East European as well. But there will be less debate over that one.

    i consider it east european to but i like to be more specific. I call austria one of the alpine states and poland central european even though people only say East european, West European, South European and Scandinavian now.

    Also how did the term central european basically went extinct? i never learned the reason why, although i do know it has something to do with WW2.

    And i chose Venezuela over every other south American Country because simon Bolivar is Venezuelan. Venezuela is also one of the richest countries in the continent. And Venezuela has the biggest army.
