Nations are the main element of Rise of Nations. With nations, you are able to conquer other countries, dominate over regions, produce money, resources, and a military force, and play this game. Nations are divided into seven tiers, depending on their military and economic power. Tier VII nations are superpowers and are the only countries that require XP to play them.

Tier I Edit

Tier I represents the weakest nations in the game, the maximum start manpower is 60 thousand. Taxes and population are small. With these countries, you can be conquered quickly by stronger powers. You are still able to dominate over the world! You can play these countries for free, it means their XP requirement doesn't exists.
