 +====Great Powers====
  
 +Traditionally,​ the major players in the game of international affairs from the 1870s to the start of the Second World War; also the countries which can be adopted by players of the game "​Diplomacy." ​ Russia, Great Britain, France, and Germany can definitely be defined as Great Powers, but like many historical terms, complete definitions are contentious,​ vary from historian to historian, and have absolutely no relevence to anything meaningful about everyday life.  Other possibilities for Great Power membership include Austria-Hungary,​ Italy, the Ottoman Empire, and the United States; the term is usually consensual in that it refers only to European or North American countries.  ​
