I've used China and a re-formed Soviet Union in my space combat games, similar to Tuffley's Eurasian Solar Union. I developed my setting independently, though.

What I mean is, you had the British Colonial Empire at the end of the 1800s through the 1960s fighting brushfire wars throughout all corners of the world.

After WWII, the Soviet Union picked up the cap of the evil empire, either fighting actual or proxy wars around the world. They also still provide endless gaming fodder for the war that never happened, the invasion of the West.

Post-1991, the US stepped in as the closest thing to the big bad target in town with two wars, three other "hot zone" countries, and troops in harms way in countless other regions ("Peace Keepers"... etc…).

With the US likely to scale back its military fingerprint over the coming years, does that make Communist (PLA) China the new/next "bad guy" in town (strictly wargaming-wise, non-politically speaking, of course!) for near-future and perhaps even sci-fi gaming considerations?

I'll keep the poll question fairly simple: Does a hypothetical "growing PLA political/military state" over the next 50 years figure in your current/upcoming wargaming?
