Country name is a RANK in REGION that is [insert brief historical, geopolitical, or strategic context]. Short (at most two paragraphs) description of situation in 450 A.U.C. (e.g. geographic location, starting and diplomatic situation, strengths/weaknesses, historical background, possible goals/ambitions). Use the flag template (e.g. {{flag|Rome}} if referring to other nations. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. In id metus et nulla semper tempus ac id enim. In nec nunc nisl. Donec consectetur sem at sodales gravida. Duis non ante quis eros scelerisque posuere. Sed malesuada diam a arcu egestas, sed molestie magna lacinia. Sed erat nibh, faucibus ac augue id, vulputate viverra magna.


If the country has alternative names as the result of events, decisions, or missions (not to be confused with forming a new nation), list and briefly describe them and their requirements here. Link to the relevant events/decisions/missions as well. Optional, and add only if the country has alternative names at all.


Main article: COUNTRY ADJ missions

If the country has country or culture-specific missions, add a link to the missions page using the main article template (e.g. {{main|Roman missions}}) and write a brief summary of what the missions are about. Preferably, describe all possible country-specific or cultural that the country can get, including those that only become available with specific requirements (e.g. the Greek cultural missions). Otherwise, just link to and briefly mention the generic missions, or omit the section altogether.


Main article: COUNTRY ADJ events

If the country has no events, leave out this section. If they've got 5 or more, put the events on a separate page named "country adjective events" and link it using {{main|Country adjective events}} and write a short description of what the events are about. Example event:


The Ascendance of Rome

The efforts of our more belligerent senators have succeeded in persuading the majority of the Curia, and even the people of Rome, that Italia is ours. The Campus Martius is alive with the cries of our confident soldiers, and fresh haruspices reinforce the gods assent for war each day.

The end of the recent conflict with our enemies in Etruria and Samnium has left our Republic as the strongest power on the Italian peninsula. Our victory has firmly convinced our feudatories in the value of supporting our cause, and has shown other small states the value of being on our side.

Roman settlers are now moving on their own accord into the regions to our north and east, establishing new colonies, expecting our protection. All look to us, from Samnium and Etruria, to Sicily and Carthage, awaiting our next move.

Trigger conditions
  • Owns at least one territory
  • Is Flag of Rome Rome
  • This event has not happened before
Is triggered only by

the Encourage Expansion Flag of Rome Roman mission task

Formation requirements

If the country is a formable nation, their formation event/decision/mission task goes here. Use a transclusion from the appropriate page rather than copy the event/decision/task directly. A map showing the requirements and claims given is preferred, but not necessary. Leave out the section if the country is not formable. A typical formation requirements section might look like this:


Form Greater Iberia

The Greeks know the land we inhabit as Iberia. As civilization flourishes, and we become more aware of the lay of the land, political environment, and cultural similarities of our neighbors, it becomes apparent that this land of Hiberia belongs with us, and not the greedy foreign invaders from the east.

Formation requirements for Greater Iberia. Fully coloured territories are required, while hatched territories will be claimed after formation.

Release requirements

If the country is releasable, put the relevant event/decision/mission task here. Like with formation, use a transclusion from the appropriate page rather than copy the event/decision/task directly. If relevant, a map showing the requirements and any other relevant information is preferred, but not necessary. Leave out the section if the country is not an event/decision/mission-specific releasable.


This section lists the unique country and culture specific decisions a nation has. Brief descriptions are desired but not necessary. If the country has no decisions, leave out this section. If the country has country-specific decisions that are shared between multiple countries (e.g. country formation decisions), add a transclusion from the appropriate page. Country-specific decisions should be placed here and then transcluded into a new section in the decisions page.

As a an example, we can use the transclusion {{#lst:Formable Nations|reunite_alexanders_empire_decision}}:


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.

Note that transclusion tags may need to be added to the decision page if they do not exist already.


List all subjects, guarantees, allies, etc. that a country has. As with all references to other countries, always use the flag template (e.g. {{flag|Rome}}. If a country has a large number (>3) of subjects (or other category of treaties), a bullet point list is more readable then writing it out, e.g.:

Rome starts with 4 feudatories:

Details about other neighbours, particularly larger rivals, can also go here.


List out the population size and number of territories that the country has, followed by a description of the main culture and religion groups of the country, particularly if they differ from the state culture/religion. A geographical description of how they are distributed is desirable, but not necessary. A description and brief analysis of the population type breakdown (i.e. citizens, freemen, slaves, and tribesmen) can also be put here.

Unique mechanics

If the country has any unique mechanics (e.g. Flag of Syracusae Syracusae's mercenary states or Flag of Sparta Sparta's unique province investments), describe and link them here.
