Assume that in a place with Nizgords, Sproings , Wopples, and Enauts, where none of them are a same classification of a group of people:
Sproings are either in a village to the east or north of a center point between the four villages.
Nizgords are either to the west or east, Wopples can be anywhere except west, and Enauts are either west or north.
Now assume that each village is at war with 1 other village, however, they cannot be at war with the country they are assisting.
Now assume that the villages assist a village that is in the opposite dirction from the center point than the country which they are at war with. (For example: x is at war with z to the west, so they can only help y to the east) Also assume that a country must assist 1 other country and a country cannot assist a country which is at war with the country assisting them.

I apologize in advance if this is unclear, as
I made this 1 up as I went, and I will post the answer in a few days if noone gets it.
Have fun!

Recap:

Four villages arrayed at north, south, east, and west compass points. Let's call them North, East, South, and West.
Sproings live in East or North.
Nizgords live in West or East.
Wopples do not live in West.
Enauts live in West or North.

Each village is at war with exactly one other village, and each village assists only the village across from the enemy (that is, each village is at war with Village X and assisting the village across from Village X).

Hey, not to worry ...
You might want to add some conditions, or start fresh with a new puzzle.

As for wasting anyone's time ... that just might be why many of us drop by ...
