And is there a way to extend that logic to take smaller seas in account?
For example, it would not be practical to have southern Finland in the
same tile with Sweden or Estonia, because there only are ferry or
flight connections between the regions.  (OK, you could drive as well,
but it would be an impractically long trip.)

Could this perhaps be achieved with some splitting constraints?  For
example, input a set of tiles from the user, and split them further
as needed?

Best regards,
