United Netherlands as a formable is pretty dumb. When Belgium was a part of the Netherlands (1815-1830) the flag and name of the country were exactly the same as they are now.
I hope some sort of Arabian union is formable, that would make a lot more sense and also provide fun gameplay.

the story is a bit different here tho. There you are forming it for the first time while in HOI its more like leadership are refering back to the glory days for their nation as a way of strengthening their position (dictators and all that) and for those cases moving your capital doesnt really make sense
What about Qing?

How do you get your steam games in to that order?

You can right click the games itself and give it a new category so you can group all paradox games under paradox game category for example.

I hope some sort of Arabian union is formable, that would make a lot more sense and also provide fun gameplay.
I think the goal is to give the cores and maybe acknowledge the restoration of order ? A simple decision could work, where the Netherlands gain cores on Belgium if they manage to conquer it, but a new tag is not that bad either

Yes they do.
Would you mind sharing some of them, please ?

The goal of the Formable Nations system is to give players a goal to work towards and enhance the sandbox gameplay. The formable nations have proven quite popular in other titles such as EUIV and the economics-simulator-that-shall-not-be-named

Stealing Victoria II game mechanics for fun and profit, mostly profit

Since Victoria 2 was named in the same post, there has to be another "economics-simulator-that-shall-not-be-named" which was played. Since in-devolpment games are played by the company.. Victoria 3 confirmed!
