Illyria, Pergamum and Massalia would be my choices :)
God, Family, Baseball, Friends, Rome Total War, and Exilian. What more could I possibly need?

I went for the Picts of Pictland  :)

I went for the one that sounded the most familiar. (Picts because I think they're in AOE 2)
Most effective elected official. Ever. (not counting Jubal)

He is Jubal the modder, Jubal the wayfarer, Jubal the admin. And he has come to me now, at the turning of the tide.

Possibly Iceni/ Eceni? They lived in Norfolk somewhere around  1st century BC to the 1st century AD .

The current Britons are basically badly stereotyped Iceni anyway, though it would be nice of that was made explicit. My home turf. :)

Well that's fixed in RTW2.

There are 5 or 6 factions in Britannia, Scotland and Ireland.

I might rename Britons as Iceni. Give suggestions for them in the "Help Lenin" thread.

That would also be a mistake.
Not all Britons were Iceni.

As I said (and confirmed by Jubal) Iceni inhabited the area of Norfolk:


This is how they are presented in RTW2:

As you can see they were given a bit more relevance.

As far as I remember, in RTW1 Britons are presented as confederation and that's why they start with the whole island united.

As far as I can see Picts will certainly get a place, along with Illirya.
