Default Conquest Destiny - A music project

So basically my friend was talking about this professional composer who used to come up with video games and then write soundtracks for them. I decided for my own personal development to try it. I came up with a rather difficult idea, so as I go along I want to share it with you guys. Basically I want to write music for a strategy game where you play as different countries of history. The challenge here is correctly emulating their styles. Here's the list of tracks I've come up with so far that I need to write.

Menu Theme - finished - http://www.mediafire.com/?1m3edndxxa3
Battle Theme
China
Japan
France
England
Spain
Russia - WIP - http://www.mediafire.com/?btgzejiiyoy (2/07)
Egypt
Iraq

I plan on adding more countries that I can think of. Any good ideas I would appreciate a lot.

I'm currently working on Russia, it's pretty difficult. I'm currently set up with a trio of instruments: Mandolin (couldn't get a balalaika soundfont >.<), bass, and accordion. I expect Iraq and the Asian countries to be the hardest.

I'm using mediafire for hosting. Does anyone know of a better service? Will this one stay forever?

Menu theme is nice and fitting. It does the job. Maybe add some percussion drums, marching military ones
The russian one is a bit tricky... its not something I would classify as RTS music, try a more calm rythm perhaps. Make it more ambient like. Its also a bit too cheerful to be battle music.

But its a great idea... might have to try that myself

Well each of the countries own music is just going to be playing during non-battle civilization management kind of situations. Plus I want a good excuse to write funky traditional music for all the different kinds of countries. ^_^ Here's an update on the Russian theme.

There's a slow part now after the fast part. I may switch around the order. I also improved the sound with some reverb and tweaked some volume stuff in the melodies.

Any type of heavy metal will work well for Japan, punk for England.... I think that would work for those 2 at least
