Can you guess the four belligerents here from the descriptions of their stances at the international scene? I'm guessing it won't be too difficult, but let's play this game anyway.


Description of the 4 belligerents...

Player A. Former great power and multiethnic empire. Authoritarian rule. Resource-based economy. Ethnic and religious conflicts lingering. Huge social and economic disparities.

Player B. Global power, presumably bringer of democracy and progress around the world. Too interventionist and militaristic at times. Federal, democratic political system. Powerful and diverse economy. Social and economic inequality rising.

Player C. Emerging regional power. Very populous. Rising and rapidly diversifying economy, hungry for resources, reliant on international trade. Authoritarian "iron fist" rule. Emerging middle class. Growing regional aspirations.

Player D. A mosaic of modern societies, some former great powers. Democratic and pluralist. Sophisticated, modernized economies. United in a loose bloc.


So here is how these are playing the big game )
