"Two new superpowers are introduced to Supremacy in this expansion set. The Federation of Australasia and the Dominion of Canarctica will cause major shifts in the global strategic balance. Try out your Grand Strategy with these two newly emerged superpowers - suddenly you see the challenges and opportunities facing the world from a new perspective! The Federation of Australasia presents a new and very significant threat to the Chinese. They no longer have a safe back door to the South Pacific, therefore must deploy forces to circumvent the crisis. This strategic development is much appreciated by the Russians, traditionally the prime target of a squeeze play by the Chinese and the Europeans. Australasia is uniquely positioned to make amphibious assaults against Africa, South America and other neighbours in the South Pacific and Indian Oceans. The Dominion of Canarctica is a major new front for the USA. The Americans are forced to maintain a large military force along their northern border to remain safe from attack. Plus, they must seek out new resources in distant, risky territories, which will strain the abilities of their conventional forces. This is good news to the Russians, who have long envied the USA its secure borders and ocean-sized moats. The Europeans are advised to keep their guard up. Canarctica is within easy reach of Europe - an amphibious assault force can be across the pond very quickly. Use the Middle Powers for a seven or eight player game. Or, substitute them for two of the six superpowers that came with Supremacy. Very challenging superpower combinations can emerge if you include the Middle Powers when using the "Random Open" rule. Playing Equipment: This expansion set contains 216 durable plastic playing pieces, representing armies, navies-neutron bombs, killer satellites, missile silos and spaceports - in two new superpower colors, two full color Supply Centers and rules."
