I won it with the first advisor. I put the initial point a bit below the main town so it would affect many sectors. Just start as usual with the services, get district representative, PR and the construction one. Get quickly effective procurement and anti corruption, Never let corruption get too high as it costs reputation. I find that this map is mostly about managing reputation. You need to keep hiring militia 1 by 1 but buy a few coalition soldiers as you’ll need to surround insurgents to stop them from fleeing.
