Thapsus is a city-state in Africa.
- Main article: Carthaginian missions
With the Punic Wars DLC, Thapsus can access the Carthaginian missions due to its Punic culture, provided it becomes a regional power and otherwise meets the requirements. These missions involve defeating the Greeks and Romans to conquer Italy, establishing colonies and expanding into Hispania and Africa, building up trade and naval infrastructure, liberating Phoenicia from foreign rule, and more.
Like all other countries, Thapsus also has access to the Generic missions regardless of whether or not the DLC is enabled.
Thapsus begins the game as a feudatory of Carthage.
