Tyras is a local power in Sarmatia Europea, founded as a Milesian colony on the northwestern coast of the Pontus Euxinus near the river of the same name. Serving as a trading center for the region along with its sister city of Olbia, the city was often controlled by native kings, devastated by the Getae, and eventually came under Roman control by the 1st century AD. Destroyed by the barbarian invasions at the close of the classical period, the city would nonetheless be refounded and persist under the names of Maurokastron and later Akkerman.
As a Bosporan culture country, Tyras has access to the unique Euxine Sea Hellenistic cultural mission tree The Hospitable Sea from game start, directing it to expand its influence and dominate the Euxine Sea region. Like most other Hellenistic group countries, if Tyras 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.
As Tyras 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 Tyras 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.
