Eritrea really surprised me, it was the only one that I couldn't get.

Missed only Eritrea as well. There was conflict there in the recent past, so it does make sense.

Plus it remains a brutal military dictatorship with, IIRC, eight years of mandatory military service

What's up with Iran? I'd have guessed they're only concerned with outpacing Iraq. I thought they were well-enough liked by their big neighbors. I guess they have issues with the Kurds & Saudis.

I would've thought Pakistan would have more in comparison to India/China. Maybe they're content with their nukes, or too poor.

I'm surprised DR & Cuba are so large. I'm guessing Cuba's concerned about the US/rebels. And DR must be worried about the failed state of Haiti.

And what's the point of Mexico having such a large military? I thought they barely had an AF. My guess is trying to stave off drug cartels from completely controlling the country? Seems like Canada isn't worried about anything. I guess Mexico had strained relations with Cuba & Venezuela; but I'd be surprised if any of those countries could have a significant naval battle with one another, let alone war.

I assume Argentina is a failure.

I think Morocco has issues with Algeria (or Spain)
