The Chu have the power of Expansionism.

This vast state, supported by a vast mixed population of Chinese and Nanman, is undoubtedly the largest state as well as the richest in all of China. Not only does Chu possess great advantages with regards to land and population, the very borders of Chu also enclose great quantities of natural resources, making it one of the richest kingdoms of all China and one of the great hegemons of the land.

Even so, the vast borders of Chu, as much as they confer benefits, also bring about their own problems. Even though the nation is rich enough so as to never need to kneel to the kings of Zhou, its natural resources also stymie the desire for innovation and change. The vast borders of Chu, whilst anchored by mountains in the southwest, still remains open to attack, be it from rival Chinese kingdoms, free and independent Nanman raiders, or the new race of barbarians - the Rong - who are slowly encroaching from the north. The vast resources of Chu have brought the benefits of Chinese civilisation together with the resilience of Nanman culture, but a strong hand and a bold new approach to Chu's problems will be necessary in order for Chu to rise up and that what is rightfully hers - the overlordship of All Under Heaven.
