Rules and Great Powers
Countries in conflict in SFRJ Diplomacy are ex member republics of Socialist Federative Republic of Yugoslavia (SFRY or SFRJ in Serbian), today indepentent states, with exception of Serbia and Montenegro, that form Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Their abbreviations are:
– (B) Bosnia and Hercegovina
– (N) Montenegro
– (C) Croatia
– (D) Macedonia
– (L) Slovenia
– (S) Serbia
Each country starts with one army in it’s capital:
– Bosnia: Army Sarajevo.
– Montenegro: Army Titograd.
– Croatia: Army Zagreb.
– Macedonia: Army Skopje.
– Slovenia: Army Ljubljana.
– Serbia: Army Beograd.
The reason for this is to give equal chance to everybody. Any other solution would be in vain, since some republics are much stronger and bigger than the others (e.g. Serbia and Montenegro).
There are 31 supply centres, thus 16 are needed for solo victory.

Abbreviations are first three letters of province’s name, or if province has name of two words – first letter from the first word, and first two letters from the second word, e.g. NSa for Novi Sad. Letters that do not exist in English alphabet, so-called Yugoslav letters (ščćžđ), are ignored when making abbreviations, e.g. Šibenik is Sib, not Šib. Exceptions from the rule are: Vao for Valjevo (because in Serbian ‘lj’ is one letter!), Krg for Kragujevac (Kra is Kranj), Kvo for Kraljevo (again, Kra is Kranj), Prz for Prizren (Pri is Priština), Pdr for Prijedor (same reason), Koc for Konjic (like with lj, ‘nj’ is one letter in Serbian).
