Calchedon, or Chalcedon, is a city-state located upon the north-western coast of Anatolia, a former Megaran colony across the Bosporus Strait from Byzantion, with which it was closely associated. Of some importance as one of the main crossings from Asia into Europe and tributary to the Antigonid Kingdom at the start of the game, the city would come under the control of Bithynia in the 2nd century BC and pass with the rest of that kingdom to Rome in 74 BC, where it remained an important but increasingly attached to the fortunes of Byzantion as that city grew in power and stature.
As a Propontic culture country, Calchedon can get access to the unique Euxine Sea Hellenistic cultural mission tree The Hospitable Sea if it becomes independent, directing it to expand its influence and dominate the Euxine Sea region. Like most other Hellenistic group countries, if Calchedon conquers territory in Greece it can also get the Greek cultural mission tree Pan-Hellenic Government and attempt to unite the Greek city-states into a new Hellenic League.
Regardless of what path it chooses to take, like all other countries Calchedon also has access to the generic missions.
As Calchedon has Hellenistic primary culture, it can take the decision to reunite Alexander the Great's empire and form the Hellenistic Empire if it controls the required territories. This, however, will require Calchedon to change its government type to a monarchy.
Reunite Alexander's Empire
For too long parasites and scavengers have made a feast of the Great Empire that Alexander spent a lifetime building. It is time we do away with all claimants, usurpers and delusional provincial strongmen. There can be only one authority within the empire of Alexander the Great, one upholder of the great Hellenistic legacy that this great man founded.
That one power could not possibly come from any dynasty but our own. Only a family that respects the Argead traditions can legitimately claim its legacy.
