Hawaii. You know, those cities are legit good, and they're eventually going to plonk down on a few more spots visible here in their backyard. Improved naval tech can't come soon enough for Kamehameha. And note: that great general points to them being on the Honor tree, as i can't recall them fighting a war to earn the points otherwise. (quite a few of these generals bumping around, wish we'd made a list as we went.)
The economic muscle is here to crank out a real threat to, well, at least bother somebody or other. Mexico? Maori? Japan? How cool would a reverse Pearl Harbor be?
