As for the resources, it is still alpha work, but your input is very welcome on that!

Yes city size is used in many parts of the game, this is for example one of the parameter used to determine how many units you can recruit in a given region.
Railroads for the economy is local in effect, but for supply and military transportation, it is needed that each region is connected to another.
To simplify the game, once the merchandise touch upon one of your national region, it is added to your national stock ... so yes USA and Russia are rather advantaged here.
Resources must be prospected yes.

I much prefer the painterly look of your games like the last Russian Revolution one and ACW. These screens are too computerised. IMO the painterly look and impressive GUI interfaces are the main things that separated you from your competitors. These screens could be straight out of Victoria 2 (almost).

But you make a good point. Game mechanics is the main thing here, this will be hell to balance right and if they manage that then I really don't care if the map looks so so.
There was in fact one game, maybe no-one here played it. It was called Colonial Conquest and only available on Atari ST and C64 I think. When played together with friends it was fantastic. Yet the graphics even for that time was very spartan.
