    It'd be great to expand in-game support for other countries, like it!

    I'm pretty sure all countries can play, just only you can type in english. Not sure if that is what you're referring to or not.

    Were the Netherlands actually part of piracy history?

    The netherlands didnt have much pirates we did however have one of the largest fleets and trading companies
    if you guys want to read more ill include some wikipedia pages
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dutch_East_India_Company
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naval_history_of_the_Netherlands
    Our best strategic genius was Admiral De Ruyter who with a smaller fleet saved our country from the spanish and french fleets who were too much for us but due to his tactical brilliance he prevented an invasion from them and inflicted alot of damage with their superior power force due to their combination of fleets

    ^^^ The bearded one is correct and I did not know this fact originally but yes they were shipbuilders and had a very large fleet , so Beardynatorland is a sailing nation !!!!!!!
