*Added Cobrastan as a City-State.

V.10 Change Notes:
*UA Changed Completely,
*UU Tweaked Again
*Actually Fixed Map

Adds the nation of Arstotzka to the game complete with a unique unit, building, custom dialogue and music.

Arstotzka is lead by the "Glorious Leader" due to the lack of a proper leader being established in Papers, Please.

Custom Unit - Border Guard;
A riflemen costing no maintenance and with a 50% Combat bonus in friendly territory, outside of friendly territory the Border Guard is a far weaker version of the rifleman with a combat value of only 55. However the Border Guard is cheaper.

Custom Building - Border Checkpoint;
Acts as a buffed up police station, reduces enemy spy stealing rate by 33% and costs no maintenance. Also has 3 Immigration Inspector, specialist slots.
The immigration inspector specialist slot when worked provides 3 gold per turn.

Custom Trait- Glory To Arstotzka;
+1 Production per 5 Citizens. -1 Food per 5 Citizens. -1 Hapiness per City. 1 Free Worker per City.

Now includes Cobrastan as a City-State!

Special thanks go out to Lucas Pope for creating Papers, Please.
All artwork and music belongs to him, bar the orchestral remix.

A few things. I really love this mod.
The Border Guard is listed as having a 50% bonus in friendly lands. The unit's promotion says 25% and I think that's what is used in combat. Can ya add the 50% instead?

Also Hapiness is spelled Happiness.
