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).

Infoboxes

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.
