Colchis is a fairly large regional power located along the eastern Black Sea in the Caucasian Mountains, within the region of Caucasia. Colchis shares borders with the nations of Iberia to the east, Legia and 20px Siracia to the north, Phasis to the west, Trapezous and the major power of Armenia to the southwest. Additionally, Colchis shares a sea tile with Sinope's Graeco-Pontic feudatory of Kerausous. Colchis begins in 450 AUC with a sizable population for a regional power, having 134 pops in it's 24 cities, the vast majority of which belong to Colchis' primary culture and religion. Colchis' starting army consists of 2 cohorts of archers, 2 cohorts of light infantry, 2 supply trains, and a starting navy of 1 liburnian, 1 trireme, 1 tetrere, and 1 hexere. Colchis in 450 AUC starts in a strong position, except with stronger neighbors to the east and south. If a Colchis player can defeat or keep Iberia and Armenia at bay, Colchis has the potential to unite the Caucasus under a single banner, and even form the empire of 20px Persia if the 20px Seleucid Empire is overcome.
The days of Cyrus and Darius are long gone, but the Persian people remember the great empires built by their own. It is time to throw off the shackles of our foreign oppressors, and unite our people once again!
