Flag of Getia Getia is a regional power in central Moesia, straddling the lower Danube river near the Pontus Euxinus between a number of smaller Dacian tribes. As one of the larger and developed tribes in the area, the Getae formed a flourishing kingdom based on trade with the Greek cities of the east after the decline and subjugation of Flag of Odrysia Odrysia, successfully holding off the ambitions of the Hellenic kings of Flag of Thrace Thrace to the south. Historically the Getae would rise to prominence under Burebista, who united all the tribes of Flag of Dacia Dacia for the first time in the mid-1st century BC and formed a powerful kingdom that would conquer the Greek cities of the Pontic Sea and scatter the Celts of Pannonia before collapsing to internal divisions, leaving Getia as easy prey for Flag of Rome Roman subjugation. Ingame, as the strongest tribe in the area and close to the Greek cities of the coast Getia is in a prime position to unite and form Flag of Dacia Dacia and take advantage of the nearby cities to develop and technologically advance more easily. If it can defeat the Hellenic powers of the south, Getia will be poised to dominate all of the Balkans and beyond.

DecisionsEdit

Form Dacia

Dacia; a land rich in resources, culture, and civilization, eyed jealously by greedy neighbors, belongs in the hands of its own people. It is high time that a strong leader emerged to challenge the status quo between fragmented tribes, uniting all Dacia under one banner!

PopulationEdit

Getia begins with a   population of 138 spread over   30 territories, all Getian Zalmoxian. As a tribal nation, Getia has a low population density at the start of the game and will find it somewhat difficult to develop at first until slaves are acquired to fill up its home territories.

StrategyEdit

Getia at 450 AUC (Ab Urbe Condita) is a great tribe that is inhabited by: 10 citizens, 26 freeman, 96 tribesman and 10 slaves. Due to this demographic structure Getia is a flexible tribe, the number of tribal people helps to populate the country, because Getia is a large nation but the population density is small and tribal people are evenly distributed in the territory. The number of freemans and citizens ensure the possibility of civilization in the long run by increasing centralization and thus reducing the armies of clan leaders. Slave, albeit in small numbers, can provide a subsistence economy in the first 10 years of consolidation. From the beginning Getia begins with an extremely large army for settled tribal status. A first enemy is   Tyrgetae, a Dacian tribe in the eastern less developed and easily conquered. At first, even if the nation has a small population by occupying cities, slaves will appear in Comidava, the capital of the country, which will lead to rapid economic growth. In order to become strong, the nation needs the population to get the Greeks back on the scientific plane because after the first 25 years the contact with the Greek world will begin and the advances will remain behind. Once the population reaches an established number, preferably at least 500 people, and the Centralization Law (Bureaucratic Focus) has been adopted, it is absolutely necessary to convert tribesman to citizens and freemans. This must happen only after Getia conquers   Moesia or   Bosporan Kingdom. Note that in order to save Oratory Power, Getia can take advantage of Religious Power to rebuild the country's stability and to deplore the fact that it can declare war using the "Show Superiority" CB.
