It’s 1990 and the Brazilian civilisation, led by President Pedro II of Brazil, has just recommended to World Congress that an International Games should be held, and this has met with approval from the American and Iroquois leaders. There’s no word from the Mongolian hordes - normally they only talk to anyone when trying to open borders, or install an embassy thus making things a darn sight easier to commit espionage. It doesn’t matter, they’ll get their pro-rata vote for or against the said motion. In the meantime a Great Artist has just created a new masterpiece in the city of Salvador. There are many similar in Rio, Sao Paulo and others, all of which contribute to the culture score, something which makes the Brazilian world and Rio in particular the most desirable place to visit. Tourism here is high. Very high. Everyone wants to come. So many in fact that we hope in time victory will be secured without the need to resort to military action (we try and avoid such things) or silly space programmes.
