20px Bharatvarsha is a formable nation representing the unification of all of India under a single ruler, as it was in the stories of the legendary emperor Bharata. It can be formed by any country in one of the three Indian culture groups (Aryan, Pracyan, or Dravidian) that has conquered or vassalized the entire subcontinent, with Flag of Maurya Maurya being by far the best positioned to do so but still possible to do with any of the other Indian kingdoms such as Flag of Kalinga Kalinga, Flag of Andhra Andhra, Flag of Chola Chola, or Flag of Ashmaka Ashmaka. As an endgame tag in an unofficial "fourth tier" - even other tier 3 formables can create it, if they meet the requirements - it has one of the most stringent formation requirements but has among the most powerful rewards of any formable nation in the game, including powerful bonuses to Unintegrated culture group happiness Unintegrated Culture Group Happiness and Policy religious conversion.png conversion speed that will bring a new era of peace and harmony to the land, under a single universal ruler.

Historically no Indian dynasty ever managed to completely unite all of India under its rule, though the Flag of Maurya Maurya would come the closest at its height during the reign of Ashoka.
