I've noticed an issue with Spain and Turkey being prevented from doing a DoW on other powers merely because Majorca, Crete, or Cyprus have enemy forces in those provinces, at a time when Spain or Turkey is not able to get any navy out to sea to attack those enemies. I suggest that home provinces with no manpower not count for the rule that prohibits DoW.

Also, zero manpower minor countries like Gibraltar, Corsica, Malta, Corfu, and Rhodes, can tie up a valuable corps counter preventing those low population places from being lost due to instability zone effects. I suggest that minor countries with zero manpower should not be lost due to instability zone effects, but can still be lost due to fiasco zone effects.

Well, rules are rules. I always wndered why a full garrison of say, 20I at Venice will not prevent the minor country from going neutral if the owner falls at inestable but a tiny 1M corps will retain ownership.

Rules, we need more rules!

These rules are in place to represent the volatile and unstable nature of the European geo-politacal stage. These specific areas were exceedingly annoying for any parent due to their fractious tendencies and the impact of perceived world opinion.

Another example would be the Tyrol for the Austrians. Silly sheep wanted autonomy in lieu of a boot on their neck...go figure.

I will add that those provinces does not count either for enforced suing for peace.
