World Background: Nations

I've been playing in the world of Aerde for well over two decades, and at one point I decided I needed to have a standard template to describe the nations in my world. That way, I would always have at least a minimal amount of information on all of the major topics that I could think of, for any given nation. I then went through and filled in this template for each of the major nations in Aerde.

Below is the template. I'm wondering if you can think of anything I might have overlooked, or might just have a good idea for an interesting additional item even if it's not necessarily critical?
