Dunno if this is the right place for modded empires and if not tell me so but I wanted to show off my wonderful (almost) empire of Korean Babylonia. This was an extended timeline run, where I not only played from the year 2 AD and plan on going to 1821, but I also randomized country placements, which is why Babylonia is a Muist Korean Kingdom. And a quick note I could have expanded and cheesed a lot more but with plans to take this to Vic 2 I want to roleplay and limit myself.
So basically this serves as a world check as well as showing off my empire.
The Homeland. Hainaut and the Aztec are my allies, as well as everyone in Japan. I wanted to see what would happen if I kept all of them alive. Though, the Pueblo are my Animist March. There was a long period of time where I couldn't expand at all, due to a big Yi empire (Created by Baden) in China and the Hainaut up north being my allies and also pretty big, so I mostly just focused on developing provinces. My most developed province is Ryukyu. I also started as a One Province Minor, btw.
My colonial gains down south as well as a few products of me diplo annexing vassals. I can't take all of the Philippines because Tondo is allied to huge powers int he area. Also, that Xi was formed by the Netherlands and has their ideas, which is amusing.
And some Fledgling colonies in America. Next up I'm gonna show how weird the world got.
There's a weird Nestorian population where Hainaut is and I don't know why. I sadly forgot to take a picture of the religious mapmodes but it is very interesting so maybe I'll get those later. Rashidun was created by Chickasaw a long time ago and kept their ideas.
Oyo, the countries on the Swahili Coast, South Sudan, and all the Madagascar countries spawned naturally. Nupe is...a weird one and you'll see why in a second but just know they were given those provinces due to extended timeline tomfoolery with their tag.
The big powers in Europe have been switching hands constantly Cumans used to exist in northern Iberia, Libya owned all of France and was scary, Circassia used to own Scandinavia, among other things. Nupe has a PU with Gupta, where Gupta is the junior partner, so that should be interesting. Hamid is colonizing, Nogai had inherited Kumaon in a PU, and both of them are orthodox. Just a small summary of the madness.
And here's America! Some big powers in Kochin and Mentese, and the Mexico region is dominated by two powers in particular. I cant see South America so unfortunately I can't show it to you, but just know that North America has their fair share of big empires.
So there's that! Just an update to inform others on how crazy this world is after 1500 years. A little over 200 more to go, and I'm excited to see how things develop. Hope it'll make an interesting Viccy 2 game in the future.
