It borders Flag of China China to the north of it, Flag of British Raj British Raj to the west, French Indochina to the south and the Flag of Guangxi Clique Guangxi Clique to the east. The Nation itself isn't very impressive, sporting very little resources and little industry. It is however home to almost 12 million core population and much of the Yunnan region is hilly and mountainous making it an easy region to defend.

Historical background[edit]

The Yunnan Clique was one of several mutually hostile cliques or factions that split from the Beiyang Government in the Republic of China's warlord era and is named after the Yunnan region. Long Yun, leader of the Yunnan Clique re-aligned Yunnan under the Nationalist government in Nanjing but stringently guarded the province's autonomy. Long Yun was a critic of Chiang Kai-shek and after the end of the Second Sino-Japanese War, he was removed from office.


The Yunnan Clique has very little of any resources but has access to a tiny amount of Tungsten.
