Media is a formable nation in the Middle East, representing a restoration of the old Median kingdom that rose to prominence after the fall of the 20px Neo-Assyrian Empire and controlled much of Iran before the rise of 20px Persia under the Flag of Achaemenid Empire Achaemenids. It can be formed by any Iranian cultured country with its capital in the Median region, in particular the kingdom of Flag of Atropatene Atropatene, which as a division of the old satrapy already controls the north of the region. Reclaiming the title requires control over the main cities of the former kingdom, divided in 450 AUC between the Flag of Atropatene Atropatene in control over the north and the Flag of Seleukid Empire Seleukid Empire ruling over the core provinces of Media Magna in the south. While difficult, a restored Media would be in a good position to continue the restoration of Iranian power and conquer the rest of the Iranian heartland to form 20px Persia.
