Because the movie's storyline is based on the complex relationships between the three countries in the area, Amestris, Creta, and Milos, they have created videos that will give us some basic information on the countries in this area that would help understand the movie's storyline.
While these are also partly explained within the movie (it comes in the middle part of the movie, as the form of dialogue, but because it is not very easy to catch all the facts from these spoken words, we highly recommend viewing these three videos (if you understand Japanese) or the following capsummaries (screen caps + translations) prior to viewing the movie.
There are 3 "Teach Us, Instructor Roy!" information videos: History Edition Culture Edition Power Edition
If you can understand Japanese, you can watch these videos on the movie's official JP site here. TeachUsJPSite.png ( 92.31K )

For those who do not understand Japanese, following are screen-caps & translations of these three videos:
Roy: "Squeezed between two powerful nations in the East and West, for people of Milos, with their nationality take away by Creta, and their holly land taken away by Amestris, their fervent wish must be to take back their country."
Roy: "In the recently years, a resistance group called "Black Bat" was formed among young people of Milos, with the goal of taking back the independence of Milos from these two nations. They're again carrying the flag of Milos Phoenix, and they have been causing incidents frequently in and around the Table City.
