I still think these would be useful additions, I appreciate Moderation might be busy but thought I'd just draw some attention to them.

The problem I have is with the first one, it would require a designation and that might present issues for a wide number of reasons; namely the adherence to Cultural Protocols. I can easily see a player who was less experience with the game coming to Trigunia, seeing its Russian but thinking "Well, I don't speak Russian, so I'm going to make the official language English AND Russian!" and while "harmless" to some degree, it could potentially start an issue.

I think is very important and usefull the languages aspects of the nation, the issues that you give I think can be solved with a clarifying note.
