* TheEmpire: Controls the largest empire by total area, which stretches across the Pacific Ocean.
* VillainDecay: Once one of the cylinder's most feared and civs (to the point where some people jokingly accused the Australian-born Tpang of rigging the game in their favor), their expansion has hit some major setbacks.

* LikeBrotherandSister: As stated previously, Japan can easily be seen as this to Korea due to having to rely on the Koreans to ensure their survival.
