Under the glorious reign of Hoxha Albania built about 700000 small bunkers

I think that's very clever. If Gaddaffi had spent his money on bunkers (and not tents and a girl army) he could have hidden forever. Same goes for Saddam.

It would be impossible to fight a ground war against an army with 700,000 bunkers. Every time the enemy captures one they have to wait there immobilized for the rest of the year before being able to move forward. I know this from playing SMAC.

Yes, it would. You'd have to have a loyal army but when you waste the entire impoverished nation's money on militarily worthless bunkers (most are just no better than storm drains left in the dirt) instead of building useful things like roads or schools... Well, people don't bother to fight in your army.

That's just a matter of marketing.
