I think people are dramatically overestimating the AI's ability to take the necessary territories. .
I don't know if the Nordics would have called their country Kalmar Union if we were united today. I think simply "Scandinavia" or something would be more likely.
Anything for a Greater Germanic Reich ?
Do you get cores on the unified land?
Yeah also many countries would totally do stuff like this if they held the power to do so.By the time you'd have enough territory to even consider taking it you'll already be way too far into nonsense territory to begin with, surely.
You do know greece wanted to proclaim itself Byzantium at it's independence right?I would enjoy an option to disable some of these tags completely.
I play mostly in non-historical mode, and while a Gran-Colombia would be most welcome, a "Byzantium" would mean utter ruin to my immersion.
Kalmar union is not all nordic countries though.Do you really have to call it "the Kalmar union"? The name wasn't even used during the time of the actual union. "Nordic federation" or something similar sounds a lot more realistic and modern.
I am so pleased they went with these instead of Scandinavia.Kalmar Union, Nordic Union
Also if Greece achieved this level of dominance in the region then they would totally do this.If Greece (or any other candidate) can achieve this level of dominance in the region, then your game is already not plausible at all
Kalmar Union and Nordic union.Scandinavia AND Nordic Union (I know they call it Nordic Unity)!? Huzzah!!! För brödrafolkens väl!
No they'd probably be the roman republic.Do these nations have custom names according to their political stance ?
I don't know if a Democratic Greece would change its name to Byzantium
In 1936 it certainly was referred to as Byzantium not as Rome.Would they EVER call it Byzantum though? Byzantine Empire never was called as such.
They tried for it when they first gained independence too right?I don't think Byzantium is ahistorical at all. After all, the Greeks tried to do it in 1919, but they were defeated by Ataturk.
The ahistorical thing about Byzantium is its name. "Byzantium" exists only in history books. The name the Byzantines used is Roman Empire. Since Italy can do the same empire in different lands, maybe there's need of a different name, hence Byzantium.
I got to disagree, moving your capital makes a lot of sense when ressurecting a dead country. I was genuinely surprised when formign asutia-hungary did not move my capital to Vienna. I could see some cases when the city in question is really small these days where it would not make logistical sense to try and use it as your capital.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
Why would Lithuania form it? It is hardly their proudest hour.Please i beg you. Make sure the Polish-Lithuanian commonwealth can be formed by either poland or lithuania
I was thinking that too,Form European Union??
Ah, that clears it up. My bad .They do not. The decisions are named in a flavorful manner. All descriptions point out the fact that these nations are being formed for propaganda purposes, and that for certain regimes the ability to point to a great empire in the past and to claim to be the (spiritual) continuation of that empire may well be of incredible importance for popular support for the government. The Kalmar Union decision is named such to illustrate what the government portrays itself as the continuation of. The names for the actual state are different.

I can't talk about any examples other than the ones that have already been mentioned (or spoiled; looking at you, Daniel! :< )
