Follow-up Comment #2, patch #1478 (project freeciv):
Ancient: The Kingdom of Macedonia was located in the southern Balkans. Under
Alexander the Great it became one of the most powerful states in the world
but it splintered into several states after Alexander's death. Macedonia was
eventually conquered by Rome in 146 BC.
Modern: The Republic of Macedonia is located in the south-central part of the
Balkan peninsula. It declared independence from Yugoslavia in 1991.
It's pretty hard to write a larger legend for Modern Macedonia that doesn't
touch the naming controversy.
Oh, and of course both nations should be conflicting.
