The war zones or potential war zones of the 6th world as of 207something:

Africa: Angola/Azania border(Namibia)(Border clashes, military standoff). Kingdoms of Nigeria(who knows, kingdoms rise and fall frequently, border clashes to outright wars). Liberia(currently experiencing a civil war).

Asia: South China sea/Spratlys(potential naval war between Canton vs. Empire of Japan. ).  Central China(border clashes between Canton vs. Henan/Sichuan/Guangxi). Israel/Jordan/Syria(Last I read in Shadows of Asia, the Israelis did an airstrike on the Jordanians). Indian/Pakistan(well the tensions are still there and both sides still hate each other). Thailand/Cambodia/Vietnam(well according to Shadows of Asia, the Garuda(Thailand) and Naga(Cambodia) hate each other and Vietnam politically controls Cambodia and does not want its grip on it to slip(Naga takeover).

Europe: The Balkans(Former Yugoslavia)(well perpetually in a genocidal civil war). Tir Na Nog(guerilla war between the Elven court and the IRA and the Unseelie court.

North America: CAS/Pueblo council vs. Aztlan(well border tensions, Aztlan is not a good neighbour), TsimTsimhan(well there is a guerilla war against the Salish Sidhe).

South America: Amazonia vs. Aztlan.

Are you counting Desert Wars and spin-offs/imitators?

Probably the same for feral zones such as Chicago, Lagos, GEMITO etc. except that moving Mongol city.

True but the sixth world hasn't had a real war since the Euro wars/Islamic Jihad....before the Amazon-Aztlan war that is. (the Yucantan was a counterinsurgency operation btw, not a real war between two nations).

How do you classify that little American dust-up in the mid 2060's then?

Good question on that, you mean the intervention of the Salish Sidhe(and allies) on TsimTsimhan.

Actually, TsimTsimhan was in the throes of a civil war with the main government collapsed, so there is no formal gov. to declare war on. The Salish Sidhe just walked in and overran the place.

So technically its was a police action intervention/peacekeeping.

In early May 2062, Tsimshian troops entered Salish-Shidhe territory. They reached the area of Okanagan Lake and Kelowna. After the battle of Revelstoke, the Salish-Shidhe pushed them back over their border. That's when a biological weapon killed one thousands Salish soldiers/several thousands soldiers and civilians (depending on the source). A cease-fire started after, lasting until 2064. MCT military advisors and troops packed off the week before the crash. When one of the Winternight EMP bomb exploded over Kitimat, the Tsimshian government blamed the Salish-Shidhe and launched a new attack.
That's when the Haide National Front overthrew the Tsimshian government. Then the Sovereign Tribal Council decided to send a military force to Tsimshian. But the Sioux were leading the show, not the Salish-Shidhe.

Aztlan - the "sovereign nation" - has not been at war with Amazonia (ever!), CAS or Pueblo.

According to the Tir Tairngire book, I quote:

" . . . the other nations of North America recognized the elven nation's
sovereignty, with the single exception of Aztlan . Though Aztlan
never recognized Tir Tairngire even to the extent of rejecting its
claim . historical evidence suggests that the Central American
nation immediately mounted a covert effort aimed at undermining
the Tir's new government by attempting to infiltrate agents
provocateurs to foment rebellion within the fledgling nation .
Surehand and his new government never revealed to the world
Aztlan's attempts at destabilization, and Aztlan eventually abandoned
their efforts . The government of Aztlan still refuses to
officially recognize TirTairngire as a sovereign nation, commonly
referring to it as "the elven settlements" when forced to acknowledge
its existence .

>[Several top secret internal and diplomatic papers "leaked"
from Aztlan indicate that the government there views Tir Tairngire
(and Tir Nan Og) as an "unfriendly power ." Both nations received
this status almost immediately upon their founding . Other nations
with this distinction include Amazonia . The connection? All are
Awakened nations ruled by metahumans or led bystrong metahuman
power blocs . While Aztlan's internal policies toward metahumans
are not the most progressive, they certainly treat them no worse than
other nations . Why do they insist on making an apparently meaningless
distinction? No one who knows is saying.]<
