Level 1 - Consolidating your base (Kunming).

"For too many years China has fallen into civil war, the nation now divided up by several warlords who have no interest in freedom, democracy, justice or even China itself. After many years of wrangling bargains and deals from the foreign devils to secure your rule, it is now tome to make your move.
