Follow-up Comment #6, patch #1350 (project freeciv):
Alright, now I've reviewed the ruleset files. Comments follow below. A *
indicates a change I've made, while a + indicates additional improvements
needed before the nation can be accepted into mainline Freeciv.
+Requires at least three more leaders
*Can only have one city style - chose European

data from Wikipedia and transcription guidelines from

*Removed conflicting nations Mongol and Tatar, added Soviet
+Both Vladislav and Sergey are living persons - need to find historical
+Cities should be transcribed from Abkhaz language - the capital of Sukhumi
is apparently known as 'Аҟəа' or 'Aqwa' in their native language.
*Removed conflicting nation 'Turk' - the Abkhazians are not part of modern
+Lyudvig, Taymuraz, and Eduard are all living people - historical
+Ossetic city names preferred: the capital of Vladikavkaz f.e. is known as
Dzæudjyqæu (Cyrillic: Дзæуджыхъæу) in Ossetic according to
*Changed city style from Tropical to European.
*Removed conflicting nation 'Turk' - not part of modern Turkey.
