Only if you're specifically forming Shi'ite Safavid Persia. I would actually argue that a Zoroastrian Persia should get a separate "Eranshar" tag, since several of the missions and events surrounding Persia assume or require you to be Shia (one mission specifically about the Shrines of Najaf and Kerbala).
But also who wanna play not as OPM? Besides, you can always convert to different religion. Paradox games all about creating your own history and lore. But if it's not OPM, for me it's not an option. Where's the challenge? Ajan? Just steam role whole asia. Timmies? Eh... Sistan? That's better. Just saying, just in my view, playin as big countries is no fun, too easy. Except when you wanna World Conquest, otherwise tiny nations or OPMs the only real option. Right now playing as Mogadishu, the only right nation to unify the Eastern Africa. Well, Also Pate is, if you wanna promote Ibadism too.
I mean, everybody plays how they want. and I obviously kinda joke and tease people. But also I do think small countries are way more fun.
