Avoiding the objective?
Isn't it counter-intuitive to avoid having objective in a nation guide? Both meanings of the word (e.g. "Conquer Johore for their Precious Metals" and "Infantry has better defense than Guards") are central to a nation guide. If you take out the fact and leave in the goal, you just have a walkthrough. If you take out the goal and leave in the fact, it wouldn't be a guide. Both are essential to writing a good nation guide.

- The guides should include information on a country and explain several strategies.
- It should not be an AAR or a walkthrough.
- The player should always be the one who decides what to do.
- In your example it should be "Johore has a large amount of Precious Metals, which generate extra income. Therefore it might be a good strategy to conquer Johore."
- This way you still let the player make the decision, while giving advice.
- And you keep both the goal (conquer Johore) and the fact (Johore has a lot of Gold).

Austria has infobox, but USA which is general guideline doesn't. I think it would be good idea for every country to have infobox on it's page for fast access to general information about it. I think the Austria's infobox is pretty good and can be used if this idea passes.
