    Spain

    So this is my Spanish nation in July of 1629:

    Country border view:



    Religion view:



    Diplo view:



    Sliders and tech:



    I'm a tech leader in all but Naval, and even then I'm in second

    Troop types:



    National Ideas:



    Income:



    Army size comparison:



    3rd largest army, above and beyond the most manpower. Second most manpower is Lithuania

    Pies!:



    Monopolies galore:



    And World map:




    Of course, your probably thinking that this empire is, well, sub-par for a Spanish empire: Galicia(although a vassal) and Granada are free, I don't have much expansion outside of the Iberian peninsula, and I own no colonies. You're also probably wondering who I used to form them-Portugal, Castille, or Aragon? Castille is out of the question, as they have a province on screen, Portugal is also out of the running as they have the Azores still, which leaves Aragon. And yet if you thought I formed them using Aragon, you would be so very very wrong. So who did I form them as? Well....


    BEHOLD! IBERIAN AACHEN!




    This was the toughest thing I have ever done, and will probably remain the toughest thing I have ever done for a while. Even making Serbia a powerful nation was easier due to getting a PU with France and Bohemia.

    HOW!!! How are you even able to do that?


    Seriously I want to know how people do stuff like this. Like forming Malay with Castille?

    Some kind of Cultural shift?

    Both of you, thank you.

    Aliasing- there is a national decision that you can use under a few circumstances:

    1)Your capital isn't your national culture(might have to be not even your culture group)
    2)Your capital's culture is your nation's dominant culture
    3)At peace(like most national decisions >_>)
    4)stability of at least +1

    When all of that is fulfilled, then you can enact the decision, which will switch your national culture to your capital's culture(IE your national culture is castillian, your capital has Bulgarian culture and is the dominant culture, you enact the decision, and BAM your national culture is now Bulgarian!

    I cannot fathom why you would form such a common nation with a mega Aachen... Regardless, I think an achievement like that should come with a real life +1 prestige boost 'Sir, forming Spain with Aachen happened to us' (Yeah, I've been playing too much recently...).

    I made a separate save before I moved my capital, so if I choose, I can always go back to playing as mega Aachen. It was just getting annoying that I couldn't do anything really because I had a grand total of 1 border conflict in the ENTIRE game, and that was my 1 expansion north into brabant territory, and even that came in the mid 1500's! Because of this, I realized that forming Germany would be pretty much impossible until I could get a strong base, and Iberia was rich for the taking with a vastly weakened Aragon and a very silly Castille who dow'd me even though i was guaranteed and allied with France at that moment, and then they did it again a few years later

    Yeah, it was a lot of fun after I found out what I want to do with the game. Some additional screens.

    Two British North america an the British Aztek. Most of my provinces were from Castille.


    British Milan and an earlier Great Britain. It is allways fun to guess where the game will put your name tag.


    Another name tag screen. I own almost all of Africa, but British Afrika is shown on the smallest piece of land.


    Over Europe you cannot see a single name. But there is a British Japan.


    And three small screens: Army Limit, Income Overview and Number of Provinces


    I did try to form the HRE in the end. I wanted to see that name all over the map. But they dared to decline my request.

    I couldn't do anything against the german borders. I vasallized most of them as Emperor by law.
    Poland blobbed like crazy and even started to colonize Sibiria. They broke apart, not my doing either. I released GH as a 6 province country. Everything else were presents from friendly rebels
    You can't make a lot of good looking borders when releasing nations. They own cores or they don't.
    The biggest problem is the religion. Every vasall you release has your religion. But the provinces still have their original religion. There were thousands of religios rebels and they reshaped the borders again, again and again. I surely did not give provinces in Northern Russia to Lan Xang, or who ever is that blue color next to Sibir.
    The last reason is the problem of BB management. If you need to get your BB down 6 points, you release Champagne not France.
