1. FR: nation_ajective_plural_for_player() function.
2. "of the %s" will force us to enter cases problem...
(cmp. "Польские" and "Польским".) [Well, first is "Польский" (non-pl.)]
However, this never stoped us before.

Gender problem can be avoided by usage nation_plural at the first place.
Other way is to _always and everywhere_ use only one gender.
(BTW, for all the time in ru.po nation.name == nation.plural. I don't
know if i could change this painlessly - reason is cases.)
All of things above can be considered as a specific case.
