The General Lee knockoff in Burnout Paradise got me thinking about how bad ass old school Dodge Chargers are, when it occurred to me that they are just as about as non-Southern as you can get. This adds further credence to the notion that "NASCAR is a Yankee conspiracy to keep you all placated so the South won't rise again."

Diplomacy II - Spring 1903
The image below is the current state of the map. A larger version is available for viewing by clicking on it. I deemed that a separate image for the retreat phase was unnecessary. The only change is the disbanding of the Russian fleet in Sweden.

England is still cruising. He took Sweden, and with the disbanding of the northern Russian fleet, nothing save gross negligence will keep him out of St. Petersburg. With complete naval superiority, he can keep that flank locked down and focus on Continental ambitions.
France made an odd shift southward, presumably a failed attempt to bounce against Italian movements that never came. Fortunately for him, the Anglo-French truce continues to hold, allowing him to fully focus on his ongoing Italian campaign.
Italy retracted in a fully defensive posture. She will be slipping down to three supply centers. Her only option is delaying tactics, with the prayer that someone else will attack France.
Austria followed up his series of debacles by failing to turn in orders. The world continues to march on without him.
Turkey finally got his fleet out to sea, but it's likely too little too late. Russia landed an army on their eastern flank, and his situation is grim.
Russia has lost the north to England, and will soon be minus two supply centers. He is looking to Turkey to replace those lost resources. Meanwhile, the slap-fighting with Austria (cue circus music) abated for one turn while the Austrians were busy not turning in their orders.
Germany was at least as busy as Austria.
