I think I've hit a turning point in the Bonus System. Most of the remaining countries use variants of what I've already built, meaning that the average time to complete them is less than five minutes apiece. Apart from one country whose Bonus I decided to punt until other features were updated, I burned through the Middle East in about an hour today. That just leaves Central Asia, and South America. (Africa has been straight up burgled from the world map, and a daring raid to recover it will be launched in a future milestone.)
Replies to MARINES IN SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE coming later. I missed a few updates there.
