Done this way to ensure that players are not eleminated in very early rounds.
They are Commander stamped only for now to show starting positions.
They are part of the Non-treasury regions.
if in first round I successfully bombard the Monarch position from another player
he is eliminated without being able to even start to play
That player would still hold all of his non-Treasury regions (his supply ship/land base, command vessel, etc).
Cairns, it might be simpler to just state, "Players holding only Treasury Regions (not including a Monarch) will be eliminated". Just a suggestion.
