- This article is about the country in the formable nation in Britannia. For the country called Albionia in northern Hispania, see Albionia.
Albion is a formable nation in Europe, representing a unification of the British Isles and the many Pretani and Gaelic tribes. Like all other western European tier 3 formables, creating Albion requires reforming from a tribe to a monarchy or republic, but distinctly requires directly owning every territory in the regions of Britannia and Caledonia, not just the major cities as with most other formables - since all the territories in the region are required, forming Albion does not give any additional claims. The tribal reformation requirement means that it is most easily formed by the more civilized tribes of southern Britannia, particularly Icenia but also tribes like Trinovantia or Durotriga, though Albion can be formed by any of the Pretani or Gaelic tribes in the region. The tier 2 formables in the British Isles - 20px Pritania, 20px Caledonian Confederacy, and 20px Hibernia - are also typically formed as a stepping stone towards the unification of Albion. Historically, there was little cohesion or unity achieved between the tribes of Albion, outside of parts of Britannia before the Roman invasions, and the British Isles would not come under a single ruler until the union of Scotland and England over a millennia and a half later.
The sceptered isle of Albion has been a haven for our people for centuries. We must aim to control it from coast to coast, uniting the disparate peoples of our land under one common identity.
- Forming Albion also allows the use of the Empire government type, provided the former tribal nation reforms into a monarchy. As such, reforming into a republic is generally not advised.
- Hibernian pops are the most plentiful in the region, followed by Brigantic pops. In particular, Brigantes starts with enough pops to begin colonisation of Ireland, making it easier to form Hibernia.
- Albion has religious unity:
- Measures which improve cultural assimilation should be chosen over those that improve religious conversion.
- Innovations which increase state religion happiness can be more potent than those which increase culture happiness.
- Britannia is considerably more populated than Caledonia.
