    China can be interesting.

    Perhaps Austria, or one of larger Italian countries.

    France is also very interesting, especially for a beginner.

    Isn't it very easy to end up Nr1 as the biggest nations like France? I wish i was able to role-play more because Victoria 2 is perfect for it. Damn my crappy imagination!

    Canada is a lot of fun to play. It's like the USA, but more ahistorically fun.

    Only play France if your goal is global conquest. It´s pathetically easy.

    Play your own country! You need to play the UK at least once to understand the UK.

    I even know you're 17 years old...

    Brits aren't all that hard, worst case scenario (your armies wiped out) you will block the opponent with your 500 ships until he gives in, or until you build another biggest army in the world and re-invade him. You just need a good plan for all the major powers, and for each continent. For example, you want to deny Germans their unification, which is best achieved by stealing one of states necessary to do that from them, or at least helping France or Austria do that. And you want to prevent the US from ever beating Mexico, or winning the ACW later on, or winning against a rebels when they finally get a shot to overthrow their democracy. You want to control South America, best through Colombia and Brazil, and you don't want others to get access to at least the bulk of Chinese and Japanese resources, so sphere Guangxi, Yunnan and Qinghai, at the very least. In Indochina two wars should let you annex Johore and put Siam into your sphere. Controlling Persia gives you oil and a priceless ally against Ottomans and Russians. In Europe the Dutch should be your main focus, as their colonies can make someone else's industry and population a bit too happy, it's also nice to have Spain and maybe even help Italy unify to sphere them afterwards, so Frenchies have something to siege while you blockade them.

    In addition, your location is listed at the UK twice.

    I'm having a lot of fun in a game I started as the Phillipines. You start off civilized for some reason and you are surrounded by tasty uncivs...

    Forming Gran Colombia or playing as Brazil have always been great fun for me.
