bamboo4This example is a bad one. What does 内政要素はなく mean?
 
your nameNo resource management element :-P
Well, techinically it's "domestic affairs" but in terms of computer wargames the general English equivalent would be "resources management". It's the 'mining / building / training etc, etc.' bit.
 
your nameI admit it's a nasty example - but you should have seen some of the others. 
AmatukaOK I found a nicer one.
