I think everyone can agree one of the best parts of a new patch is seeing which nations get their own NI sets. And one of the most frequent topics in the suggestion forums are suggestions for said new NIs. Unfortunately, they can be difficult to find, and can fade away pretty quickly. Hence this thread.

As I recall there used to be a thread similar for this a while back, but since I can't seem to find it, I've created this; a new NI compilation thread, where I'll try to upload any suggested NI sets I see for nations that do not yet have them for convenience's sake. If there is an Idea Set of yours for a nation that does not have an unique NI set, or if I missed one of yours, please; feel free to post.

Edit: Also, please try to keep it restrained to only tags that are already in game or have been confirmed are being added.


At the request of @Trin Tragula, I’ve composed an index of this thread that I’ll do my best to keep updated. I’ve separated it into NIs for countries that already have them (which may or may not have been influenced by the ones in this thread) and ones that don’t, and then alphabetized them for ease of access. Author will be put in parenthesis.

This very belated update to the list was courtesy of @Aquamancer, who did the legwork in updating the thread to match the current situation of NIs ingame, as well as to make it more visually appealing.

Bukharan National Ideas, as suggested by @Basileios Makedon , retrieved from here:


Bukharan Ideas

Traditions:

+2 tolerance of heretics

-20% cavalry cost

1. The Shaybanid Dynasty: The Shaybanid Dinasty was the first dinasty in ruling the Khanate of Bukhara. They made Bukhara a center of art, culture and trade and attracted wise men such as Amin Ahmad Razi, author of Seven Climates.+1 yearly prestige

2. Preserve the steppe traditions: Our horde past is still living in the Khanate in a lot of ways. Despite our modernization, we shall not forget that glorious era of riding, pillage, and conquest.+20% cavalry combat ability

3. The Silk Road: Since this city exist, it has been a very important center of trade in the Silk Road. Indian, Chinese, Persian and Arab merchants have seen and lived in this city, and we should maximize our benefit form trade.+15% global trade power

4. Mercenaries of Astrakhan: Astrakhan and Bukhara have a long-time relationship, and they helped each other against our wild cousins of the north. If we pay well, they should be wiling to put a part of their army under our control.+75% mercenaries available

5. Schools for each mahalla: A mahalla is an administrative division used in the Khanate of Bukhara. Each mahalla had their own school, so the cultural level in the Khanate was always increasing.-5% technology cost

6. Tolerate our steppe brothers: In our northern border, the turkic and Altaic peoples fight each other for the supremacy. They are very problematic, but we should do an effort to understand our steppe brothers, since long time ago, we were just like them.-15% accepted culture threshold

7. Ataliq administration: In the Khanate of Bukhara, each region was ruled by an ataliq appointed by the Khan. They received precise orders from the court to ensure that the regions didn't have too much autonomy.-0.05 monthly autonomy reduction

Tunisian National Ideas, as suggested by @Basileios Makedon , retrieved from here:

Tunisian/Hafsid Ideas

Traditions:

+1 merchant

+15% galley combat ability

1. Centralize the state: The desert is always difficult to rule. The long distance and the dangers of the desert make communication very difficult. We should maximize the efficiency of our administration to make the state more centralized.-0.05 monthly autonomy reduction

2. Campaigns in North Africa: Since the times of Abu Zakariya, we have been organising campaigns agains the minor african kingdoms, mainly Tlemcen. Our soldiers should march against them with the military efficiency that they have shown these 200 years.+10% army morale

3. Piracy in Mediterranean: The Mediterranean is a region full of pirates. Instead of fighting them, we should cooperate with them and recruit them as corsairs to weak the Christian trade in the Barbary Coast and stregthen Tunisian one.+15% privateer efficiency, -15% ship cost

4. Legacy of Ibn Khaldun: Ibn Khaldun was a very important historian and considered the father of the sociology. Although he was from Al-Andalus, their origins were tunisian and he lived here most oh his life.-5% tech cost reduction

5. Reforms of Abd-Al Azid: The piracy gave a lot of money to the Hafsid state. Under Abd-Al Azid II, those benefits were used to build administrative and naval buildings all across the country to reinforce the tunisian presence there.-10% build cost

6. Center of Mediterranean trade: Tunis has always been a very important center of trade in the Mediterranean. Since ancient times, it has been the gate between Eastern and Western Mediterranean, and the gold and slaves that come from Africa visit Tunis in their way to Europe.+20% provincial trade power

7. Defend against Christian Kingdoms: Since the times of the 8th crusade, to the modern Aragonese and Spanish campaigns, our kingdom has defended its land from those heathens from the north. We should improve our fortifications to ensure that they never try again.+10% fort defense

Crimean National Ideas, as suggested by @Basileios Makedon , retrieved from here:


Crimean Ideas :Traditions :
-10% army maintenance cost

+15% manpower recovery speed

1.Black Sea Trade: The Black Sea has been, since antiquity, an important trading spot between the steppes, Persia and the Balkans. By increasing our trade network we could redirect all that trade to our ports.+15% trade steering

2.Descendants of Gengis Khan: Gengis Khan is one of the best generals and kings in the world, and we can safely say that we are linked directly to him. This is useful for both external and internal purposes.+0.5 yearly legitimacy, -10% coring costs

3.Tatar Cavalry: The age of steppe cavalry is gone, but our cavalry, a bit modernized, is one of the finest in the region and both the Ottoman and Russian empires use it regularly.+20% cavalry combat ability

5.Ottoman protection: Despite our brave warriors and our unbeatable cavalry, we are on a weak diplomatic spot. Surrounded by three empires, we should seek Ottoman protection to focus on internal affairs. -10% stability costs

5.Defend against Poland: Our alliance with the Ottomans can be useful, but the it makes Poland our enemy. We should fortify our borders to protect us from this powerful foe.+15% fort defense

6.Crush the Golden Horde: The Golden Horde is one of our oldest rivals and most annoying neighbours. Now that they are weak, let's crush their armies and conquer their cities.+5% discipline

7.Center of Russian slavery: It might not be ethic, but slavery is a very profitable business, and with some efforts, it will be enough to sustain our economy.+10% trade goods produced

Ambitions:

+10% trade efficiency

Traditions: +10% Land Morale, -10% Fort Maintenance

Refurbish the Hexamilion Wall: +20% Fort Defense
Description: The Hexamilion Wall is located in a strategic position, stretching across the Isthmus of Corinth, but it has fallen into disrepair and is horribly outdated. We should rebuild it along more modern standards and take full advantage of its location!

Title of Despot: -20% Time to Fabricate Claims
Description: The title of Despot was originally conferred on the ruler of Morea by the Emperor, designating him as heir apparent. Though the empire is gone, the importance of the title still stands. Let us use it to legitimize our claims as the rightful heirs to the empire.

Albanian Influx: +15% Manpower Recovery Speed
Description: Our homelands have slowly become depopulated due to constant wars and Turkish raids. Let us invite Albanians to migrate into our lands and help rebuild our reserves.

Venetian Outposts: +1 Diplomatic Reputation
Description: The Venetians already have established a strong presence across our peninsula, and if we make concessions to them in key ports, we can use their connections with the rest of Europe to find allies in our struggle.

Reconstruction of the Peninsula: -10% Build Cost
Description: Continuous conflict across our peninsula has resulted in widespread destruction, and many fortresses, churches and monasteries lie in ruin, leaving it a shadow of what it once was. We should begin a program of reconstruction.

Maniot Recruitment: +10% Infantry Combat Ability
Description: The Maniots are a fiercely independent people that live in southern Morea and are renowned for their martial prowess. They’ve prospered under our rule, and so they will gladly contribute to our army.

Continuation of Byzantine Monasticism: +2% Missionary Strength
Description: Morea is home to many ancient monasteries that survived the carnage that engulfed the region. Housing many priceless frescos, and more importantly, devoted monks, we should sponsor them and experience a resurgence in our culture and faith.

Ambition: -1% Yearly Army Tradition Decay

Norman Ideas:

Traditions: +10% Cavalry Combat Ability, -25% Mercenary Maintenance Cost

Ducal Laws of Normandy: -1 Unrest
Description: Normandy has always had its own laws, unique and independent from the rest of France, surviving multiple attempts at uniformity by the French crown. We can administer justice far more fairly and efficiently by keeping them alive.

The Bayeux Tapestry: -1% Yearly Prestige Decay
Description: The Bayeux Tapestry tells of the events leading up to and culminating in the conquest of England, our most glorious triumph. Let it stand as a reminder to our great exploits.

Legacy of Norman Conquests: -15% Core Creation Cost
Description: England was not the only land to know our rule. We have conquered places as far as Sicily and Naples, and even carved out territories in distant Epirus, Antioch and Tripoli. Our past is one of finding and conquering new lands, and so should our future.

Adventurous Spirit: +10% Land Morale
Description: Our people have always been willing to brave great adversity, and as a new Golden Age dawns upon us we must be willing to face such hardships again.

Settle the New World: +1 Colonist
Description: The Age of Exploration is upon us, and many Explorers and Colonists are leaving our ports for the New World. We should endorse their activities and reap the rewards.

Adaptable Architecture: -10% Build Cost/+5% Fort Defense
Description: Wherever we have gone, we have usually imported our distinctive Romanesque Architecture with us, itself a blend of various styles, and also incorporating local trends in the process. This way, we could better build higher quality buildings without great expense.

Consolidate the Church: +1% Missionary Strength:
Description: The Reformation has shaken the unity of our once singular congregation. We should endeavor to fully endorse one side and see the true word of God triumph.

Ambition: -10% Culture Conversion Cost

Frankfurter Ideas:

Traditions: -20% Mercenary Maintenance, +10% Fort Defense

Frankfurter Messe: -5% Technology Cost, -5% Idea Cost
Description: The Frankfurt Book Fair sees countless tomes and inventions from all over Europe pass through our streets, making our fair city one of the prime hubs of knowledge and innovation on the continent.

Standardization of Exchange Rates: - 1 Interest per Annum
Description: Just as many different currencies pass through our city as books. We should establish proper exchange rates to help ease their flow and allow for an easier time in securing loans.

Jewish Communes: +10% National Tax Modifier
Description: Frankfurt has some of the largest Jewish communities in Germany, and we will be able to increase our tax income as a result.

Seat of Imperial Coronations: +1 Yearly Prestige
Description: Our city has recently become the place of Imperial Coronations, a great honor that will bring no small amount of prestige to us.

Smallest Metropolis in the World: -10% Development Cost
Description: Frankfurt is one of the largest cities in Europe, even with its small size, serving as one of its most important centers of commerce and transportation, and has seen settlers from nations all over come to it.

Frankfurter Neutrality: +1 Diplomatic Reputation
Description: Even as wars rage around us in the Empire, to maintain our independence, we will attempt to stay out of them best we can.

Bürgerrecht: +0.5 Republican Tradition
Description: The Burghers are some of the most important members of our city, lesser nobles and merchants who keep the power of the oligarchs in check so that our republic can continue to stand and our city flourish.

Ambition: +5% Discipline

Flemish Ideas:

Traditions: +1 Merchant, +10% Trade Efficiency

Flemish Cloth Industry: +10% Goods Produced
Description: Flanders has a long, proud tradition of being the leader in the cloth industry of Europe; taking wool imported from England and else and then turning it into Europe’s main supply of clothing.

Merchant Houses: +15% Global Trade Power
Description: Traders from all over the world establish merchant houses in our principal port cities to do business, and we can use that as leverage to expand our own trade network.

Polders: -10% Development Cost
Description: The low countries are highly susceptible to flooding and in the unsettled weather of the 11th - 14th centuries there were multiple floods leading to the creation of the Zuiderzee and also salting the soil of coastal areas. We now have the technology to reclaim land allowing more productive agriculture.

Beeldenstorm: +2% Missionary Strength Against Heretics
Description: We can allow no graven images within our lands; their veneration is tantamount to worship! See to it that they are destroyed!

Flemish Shipyards: -10% Shipbuilding Time
Description: Flanders, being home to many of the vital ports of Europe, is natural home to many of its largest shipyards as well. These docks will allow us to construct a large trade fleet much quicker than our competitors.

Sugar Capital of Europe: +10% Production Efficiency
Description: Antwerp has become the sugar capital of Europe; importing most of the continent’s supply and containing one of the largest populations of able refiners to make and ship it.

Centralize the Army: +5% Discipline
Description: Historically, whenever we have gone to war, our cities have independently provided us with troops, leaving our army prone to lack of strong leadership. We should revise this and create a central authority to muster and lead all our forces.

Ambition: +25% Naval Forcelimit Modifier

Brunswick Ideas:


Traditions:

  • Manpower Recovery Speed +10%

  • City of Braunschweig- Our capital has been a center of trade and was an important city in Economics and Politics. Let’s take a new step and refurbish our capital to be the center of Northern Germany. Development Cost -15%
  • Dankwarderode Castle- This castle has been our main place for our authority and rule. If we establish this as our main palace, then our hold over our kingdom will be even tighter. National Tax Modifier +10%
  • Ruled by Guildsman- Our Duchy is ruled by our Nobility and Guildsman. But if we give the Guildsman more power and increase their production, then will be able to dominate the goods that flows through our lands. Province Trade Modifier +15%

Then we can produce the force to push out all encroachers. Years of Separatism -5

UPCA Ideas:


Traditions:

  • Remove Pagan Ways: The Indians have always been misguided in their ways of worship and this needs to stop. This does nothing for our country. If they resist, we will get rid of them. It’s time they learn the true God. Missionary Strength: +2%
  • Mayan Jungle: The land we control is filled with dense jungle. Harboring disease and creatures that could kill a soldier. This jungle will make it hard for armies to invade us and we can better hold against our enemies. Attrition For Enemies: +1

  • Remove Faction Dispute: The UPCA is a group of countries united under one government. But problems stem from factions trying to benefit themselves and this has led to many civil wars. So we’re going to end it. No faction is going to be influential over the others. This will stabilize our government and will make everybody happy. Republican Tradition: +.5
  • Access to Caribbean: The Caribbean has been grabbed by the Europeans. But many people travel here for loot and become a pirate. But these people are skilled in many things. If we persuade them to come to our court, then they can have a use. Possible Advisors: +1

  • Incorporate Indians in our Government: The Indians lived in this region for years. Our people don’t have the same numbers as the Indians do.

Idea Groups for Berar and Garhwal, as suggested by @exaenae , retrieved from here:

Berar
Traditions - Leader Siege: +1 / Military Technology Cost: -5%
1) Gawilghur Fort - Fort Defense: +10%
The Gawilghur Fort was built by Fathullah Imad-ul-Mulk of Berar. It is a well fortified mountain stronghold. It takes years for our invaders to successfully breach the fort's walls, so it's only logical that we build our forts in similar locations.
2) Religious Crossroads - Religious Unity: +20%
The Indian Subcontinent is very religiously divided. By treating all believers equally, regardless of their faith, we can create a tolerant society.
3) Avoid the Mistakes of the Bahmani Sultanate - Stability Cost Modifier: -10%
Our nation was one of many Sultanates created after the collapse of the Bahmani Sultanate. If we are to become a long lasting empire we must avoid the mistakes of kingdoms past.
4) The Imad Shah Dynasty - Yearly Legitimacy: +1
Historically, Berar was ruled by the Imad Shah dynasty from the country's beginning to its demise. To keep this dynasty ruling for as long as it can we must reform our succession laws.
5) Foreign Siege Specialists - Artillery Cost: -10% / Siege Ability: +5%
They may not want to know it, but our generals aren't all that great. A good amount of them are competent leaders in battles, but when it comes to sieges, seeking help from foreign experts is our best course of action.
6) Strive for Tolerance - National Unrest: -1
Unrest is always a great problem in any nation. This becomes an exceptional problem in India, given the fact that it is religiously and culturally divided. We should strive to understand this and reconcile our differences to accomplish a society everyone will want to live in.
7) Berar National Guard - Morale of Armies: +10%
Guarding the Sultan's palace is the most honourable thing any soldier can do. By granting these guards benefits, we will ensure they stay loyal, and all our soldiers will fight all that harder to achieve this prestigious position.
Ambition - Artillery Combat Ability: +10%

Garhwal
Traditions - Morale of Armies: +10% / Chance of New Heir: +50%
1) Descendants of Malwa - Time to Fabricate Claims: -20%
Garhwal was founded when Kanakpal, the prince of Malwa married the daughter of a Garhwali chieftain. Kanakpal and his descendants conquered all the independent forts (Garhs), thus creating the Garhwal kingdom.
2) Himalayan Defenses - Fort Defense: +15%
Located just in the base of the Himalayas, we are in a great defensive position. By building forts in areas with high altitude we can see the invaders coming and defend appropriately.
3) Legacy of the Chand Kings - Yearly Legitimacy: +1
The Chand Kings ruled the area of Garhwal when it was fragmented into small principalities. Though we are now united, we can learn many lessons from them.
4) Garhwali Shah - National Unrest: -1
Balbhadra Shah was the first Raja of Garwhal to use the title Shah. All rulers since have used it, and the people feel secure knowing the country's well ruled, whatever the monarch's title is.
5) Garhwali Language - Accepted Culture Threshold: -10%
Garhwali is a Central Pahari language, primarily spoken by citizens of our country. The people we conquer may be displeased if we force them to speak a foreign language, but later on it will lead to easier integration of their lands.
6) Continued Resistance Against the Muslims - Discipline: +5%
We border the uninhabited wastelands of the Himalayas to the north, but on all other fronts we are surrounded by Muslim countries that would rather have us not exist. We must take a stand against the Muslim menace and protect the believers of the Hindu faith from any harm.
7) Long-Standing Kingdom - Yearly Prestige: +1
The Kingdom of Garhwal has existed for more than 600 years. We have a long and rich history, as we watched entire empires be created and crumble to dust.
Ambition - Technology Cost: -5%

National Ideas for Funj and Morocco, as suggested by @exaenae , retrieved from here:

Funj
Traditions - Recruitment Time: -10% / Land Maintenance Modifier: -10%
1) Educated Merchants - Diplomatic Technology Cost: -10%
The capital, Sennar, became prosperous through trade, hosting representatives from all over the Middle East and Africa. Our merchants travel the world and are exposed to many different cultures. They don't only bring goods from their travels, they also bring knowledge.
2) Sennar Syncretism - Religious Unity: +25%
In 1523 the monarchy officially converted to Islam, though many elements of Coptic beliefs remained. While Islam was officially the state religion, most citizens followed a syncretic faith.
3) Heavy Cavalry - Cavalry Combat Ability: +20%
The armies of Funj rely mostly on heavy cavalry, horsemen armoured with chainmail while their horses were covered in thick quilts and copper headgear.
4) Monarch-Controlled Caravans - Caravan Power: +15%
In the Sultanate of Funj, all caravans were controlled by the monarch, as was the country's gold supply that functioned as the state's main currency.
5) Noble Cavalry - Cavalry Cost: -10%
The Sultanate's standing army was composed of a great mass of infantry troops, with regiments mostly drawn from peasantry. But while the cavalry was less present, it was only drawn from the nobility, to ensure the finest trained horses and the best riders.
6) Professional Standing Armies - Discipline: +5% / Fort Defense: +5%
Funj had the largest standing army in East Africa until the 1810s. These men were garrisoned in castles and forts throughout the sultanate. The country's heavy reliance on a standing army meant their armies were usually smaller, but highly effective against the less organized armies of their enemies.
7) State-Administered Currency - Yearly Inflation Reduction: +0.10
By having the state take direct control of the issuing of new currency, as well as running scrupulous checks to assure the people in charge of the mints are competent. This way we will have no problems with inflation.
Ambition - Tolerance of Heathens: +2

Morocco
Traditions - Hostile Core-Creation Cost on Us: +50% / National Manpower Modifier: +10%
1) Berber Cavalry - Cavalry Cost: -10% / Cavalry Combat Ability: +10%
We are a Berber country, and the Berber cavalry is some of the finest cavalry in the Muslim world. We must exploit this for our benefit.
2) Legacy of Ibn Battuta - Can hire explorers and conquistadors / Yearly Prestige: +1
Ibn Battuta was a Moroccan explorer that covered North Africa, Arabia and the majority of Asia. His legacy still remains with us.
3) Found Madrassas - Technology Cost: -10%
Madrassas are the basis of education in Muslim countries. If we found new ones and fund old ones, the whole country can benefit.
4) Barbary Pirates - Galley Combat Ability: +25%
The Barbary pirates were pirates and privateers who operated from North Africa. By recruiting these experienced sailors into our navies, our navy can be a truly frightening sight to behold.
5) Jihad - Missionary Strength: +2%
Jihad is our religious duty to maintain and spread the Muslim faith. We should strive for this goal and spread our faith for the glory of Allah.
6) Protect the Trans-Saharan Trade Route - Provincial Trade Power Modifier: +15%
The Trans-Saharan trade route is one of the most important sources of income for the Sultanate of Morocco. We should improve and protect this important route and reap the benefits.
7) Imperial Maghreb - Morale of Armies: +15% (bumped down from +20%)
The early Moroccan dynasties created an idea of an Imperial Maghreb, encompassing all of the lands of the Maghreb under a single Berber aegis. We should strive to accomplish this idea.
Ambition - Galley Cost: -20%

National Ideas for Iraq, Lebanon and Yemen, as suggested by @exaenae , retrieved from here:

Iraq

Traditions - Yearly Army Tradition Decay: -1% / Core-Creation Cost: -20%
1) Cradle of Civilization - Yearly Prestige: +1
Mesopotamia is widely considered the cradle of civilization. Without that land, none of our threats and attackers wouldn't be here today.
2) The Imam Ali Mosque - Missionaries: +1 / Tolerance of the True Faith: +3
The Imam Ali Mosque is the third holiest site for followers of Shia Islam. It is visited by tens of thousands of pilgrims every year that pay tribute to Imam Ali. Some of these are trained missionaries, and we can convince them to pursue a higher goal by converting the heathens and heretics we conquer.
3) Fortify Baghdad - Fort Defense: +20%
Baghdad was invaded many times throughout history, most famously by the Mongols. We must prevent further invasions, or at least delay them, by fortifying our capital and defending it to the last man.
4) Restore the Bayt al-Hikma - Technology Cost: -5%
The House of Wisdom, or Bayt al-Hikma was a major intellectual center during the Islamic Golden Age. It was founded in Baghdad by Caliph Harun al-Rashid and destroyed during the Siege of Baghdad in 1258 by the barbaric Mongols. By restoring the House of Wisdom we can once again become the beacon of Muslim learning.
5) Metropolis of the Muslim World - Idea Cost: -10%
Built in 8th Century by the Abbasid Caliphate, Baghdad quickly became the leading metropolis of the Arab and Muslim world for several centuries. Since we control this city and proclaimed it our capital, we must take advantage of its prestigious title to attract the cultural elite of the Muslim world.
6) The Land Between Rivers - National Manpower Modifier: +25%
Mesopotamia is located between the rivers Euphrates and Tigris, and its land is incredibly fertile. By further cultivating land in the cradle of civilization, our manpower reserves will be plentiful.
7) Promote Multiculturalism - Accepted Culture Threshold: -15%
Baghdad is a city of incredible cultural diversity. By encouraging citizens of different cultures to be accepting to each other, our society will become accepting and people seeking refuge in our capital will be accepted.
Ambition - Discipline: +5%

Lebanon
Traditions - Tolerance of Heathens: +2 / Missionary Strength: +2%
1) Legacy of the Crusades - Discipline: +5%
The Kingdom of Lebanon was an important part of the Crusades. We can revive this legacy for the glory of our nation.
2) Phoenician Traditions - Merchants: +1
Our lands were once owned by the Phoenicians, one of the greatest trading powers in the Mediterranean. Reviving their heritage will benefit our nation greatly.
3) Convert the Heathens - Missionaries: +1
Our unique position in the area means we are surrounded by hostile religions. We should make all attempts to convert them to the true faith.
4) Bastion of Christianity in the Levant - Fort Defense: +15% / Yearly Papal Influence: +1
We are in a precarious position as the only Christian country in the Levant. Improving our defenses should help dissuade the Muslims from attacking us.
5) Cedar Wood of Mount Lebanon - Trade Efficiency: +10%
According to the Old Testament, the Phoenician king Hiram I sent engineers to build the Jewish Temple of Jerusalem out of cedar wood found on Mount Lebanon. The Phoenicians also traded with Egypt for this wood, and so can we: let us trade with the lumber-poor yet ultimately rich countries. They get access to fine wood, and we get money!
6) Conquer the Levant - Infantry Combat Ability: +15%
Now that we have established ourselves in the Levant, we should look at expansion and conquering the area for the glory of our nation.
7) Merchant Fleets - Light Ship Cost: -15%
Let us put our focus on constructing ships to protect our trading interests, as well as placing merchants on these fleets that will oversee the safe arrival of cargo into our ports.
Ambition - Recover Army Morale Speed: +10%

Yemen
Traditions - Trade Efficiency: +10% / Embargo Efficiency: +10%
1) Control the Gulf of Aden - Light Ship Combat Ability: +20%
The trade flowing through the Gulf of Aden is rich. Naturally, it attracts pirates, but we must improve our fleet to ensure the trade flows freely, and the goods end up where they're supposed to.
2) Rasulid Literature - Idea Cost: -10%
Several sultans of the Rasulid dynasty were very culturally prominent, being educated men who wrote letters and literature. Their heirlooms remain with us and strengthen our sense of national pride.
3) Port of Aden - Global Trade Power: +10%
The Port of Aden is one of the most important trading ports in Arabia, and holds significance as the entrance to the Red Sea. As long as we retain control of this city we can control both incoming and outgoing trade.
4) Exported Horses - Military Technology Cost: -10%
Horses, along with agricultural crops, are the most important exports of our nation. As long as there is demand for horses in the Muslim world, we will have someone to sell them to. And as long as there is an exchange of goods, there is an exchange of information.
5) Tahirid Builders - Build Cost: -20%
The Tahirids were a local clan in Yemen who were keen builders, constructing schools, mosques and irrigation channels as well as bridges in many Yemeni cities.
6) Provide Protection to Jewish Merchants - Merchants: +1 / National Tax Modifier: +5%
The Gulf of Aden attracts merchants of all races and creeds, including the Jewish. If we can make Jewish merchants a protected class in our country we can greatly benefit from their knowledge.
7) Red Sea Toll - Trade Power Abroad: +25%
Due to the strategic position our country holds on the Red Sea, we can enforce a toll on any ships attempting to enter or leave these waters.
Ambition - Cavalry Combat Ability: +10%

National Ideas for Brabant, Liege, Flanders, and Free Cities, as suggested by @exaenae , retrieved from here:

Brabant
Traditions
- Discipline: +5% / Trade Efficiency: +10%
1) Charter of Liberty - National Tax Modifier: +10%
In 1354 Duke John III of Brabant granted a Joyous Entry to the citizens of Brabant. The six specific freedoms detailed the exact powers the church, the towns and nobles have, which allowed the duke to more easily collect taxes.
2) Provide Protection to the Lower Classes - National Unrest: -2
Most citizens of Brabant are happy with our rule, thanks to our efforts to improve their situation in the country. We should provide further protection to the peasantry by introducing a set of laws that would only make them subject to the king. This way, we can insure stability in our country.
3) French Influence - Military Technology Cost: -10%
Our relative proximity to the French means our country is greatly influenced by them. By encouraging our advisors to further study French methods of warfare, our military can benefit.
4) Welcome the Reformers - Tolerance of Heretics: +2
The Reformation is spreading through Europe at a rapid pace. While close-minded countries around us are crumbling because of their blind loyalty to the church, we can be more open, and welcome the reformers to our nation as well as grant them protection.
5) Reclaim the Territories of Burgundian Netherlands - Aggressive Expansion Impact: -15%
Burgundy was a fractured country. This feeling of separation amongst the citizenry will make them more prone to conquest, and less resistant to our rule when we make an expansion attempt.
6) Marsh Warfare - Land Leader Maneuver: +1
The terrain in the Low Countries is dominated by marshes and other unfavourable terrain. By training our generals to better adapt to the hostile terrain we can have more success in the battlefield.
7) Found the Tilburg University - Possible Advisors: +1
By founding new universities we will ensure everyone gets the education they need, and we get more educated men to work for the state.
Ambition - Artillery Combat Ability: +15%


Flanders
Traditions
- Land Maintenance Modifier: -10% / Fort Maintenance: -10%
1) Increase Autonomy of Border Cities - Fort Defense: +10%
Flemish autonomous urban centres were instrumental to defeating the French in the Franco-Flemish war. By granting cities on our borders a certain level of autonomy we can ensure they fight for their city and increase our nation's overall protection.
2) Flemish Trade Partners - Trade Power Abroad: +10% / Trade Range: +10%
Our trade partners are some powerful countries such as England, France and various Italian and Rheinlander states. By maintaining good relations with these countries, as well as establishing trade posts in their lands, we can ensure our trade will flourish.
3) Cloth Industry - Production Efficiency: +10%
After French invasions, Flanders experienced a period of prosperity with its strong cloth industry. We should fund the cloth-working guilds to increase production, and therefore bring in more income for the state.
4) Ivory Statues of the Madonna and Child - Yearly Prestige: +1
Our trade routes reach as far as the Indian Ocean. By encouraging our merchants to work with the English and the French, we can get access to ivory. Using this fine material, we will construct statues of the Maddona and Child to make our country more prestigious and strengthen our Catholic ties.
5) Flemish Nationalism - Hostile Core-Creation Cost on Us: +50%
By encouraging citizens to take pride in their culture and their language, we will make them less tolerant of any invader that attempts to take over our nation and make our territories more difficult to fully integrate.
6) Refurbish Gravensteen - Yearly Legitimacy: +1
The castle of Gravensteen was built in 1180 by Philip of Alsace located just outside of Ghent. Its condition has deteriorated lately, so much so that it was abandoned as the seat of the nation in the 14th century. We can organize a grand project to renovate the castle to make it grander and more prestigious. Then, it can once again be the glorious seat our nation truly deserves.
7) Flemish Trading Towns - Caravan Power: +20%
In the 13th century, Flanders was one of the most urbanized areas in Europe. By granting these trading towns more attention, as well as a certain amount of autonomy, we can increase our trade presence in the area.
Ambition - Land Leader Fire: +1


Liege
Traditions
- Yearly Devotion: +1 / Tolerance of the True Faith: +2
1) Devout Christians - Yearly Papal Influence: +2 / Church Power Modifier: +10%
As a Catholic nation, we have sworn our loyalty to the Pope. We must maintain these good relations and reap the benefits.
2) Athens of the North - Idea Cost: -10%
In the 11th century, the city of Liège was referred to as Athens of the North. We must use this prestigious status to attract the greatest minds of the generation.
3) Bonnes Villes - National Unrest: -1
Bonnes villes, the name for our most important cities and cities that are very influential in our nation. We must give in to some of their demands to keep them on our side, even if it doesn't benefit the country.
4) Empower the Archdeaconries - Stability Cost Modifier: -10%
Our country is grouped into archdeaconries, senior clergy positions in the Church above that of most clergies. By empowering them we can ensure our country stays unified and stable.
5) The Liege Iron Mines - Infantry Combat Ability: +10%
Whilst our country isn't rich in iron, we have sufficient quantities to supply our own troops, and have a small amount left over to trade to other countries.
6) The Spanish Road - Diplomatic Relations: +1
Liege was the last link in the chain of Habsburg allies that allowed Spain access from Lombardy to the Spanish Netherlands.
7) Organize the Feast of the Blessed Sacrament - Prestige Decay: -1%
In 1252, bishop Hugh of Saint-Cher made the feast of the Blessed Sacrament obligatory through his diocese. We should continue organizing this feast throughout the nation.
Ambition - Cavalry Combat Ability: +10%

I also posted Free City ideas as a comment in one of my previous threads, so I'll copy them here so everyone can see them:

Free City Ideas
Traditions
- Fort Defense: +10% / Land Force Limit Modifier: +25%
1) Urbs Imperialis Libera - Yearly Prestige: +1
The right of being a free city was granted to us by the Emperor himself. We should cherish this prestigious position that we have been given.
2) Ensure Fair Leadership - Yearly Republican Tradition: +0.5
To ensure our city prospers, we must first run rigorous checks on who runs it. By setting very specific terms on who can and cannot be the Bürgermeister we will ensure that our city's leadership is just and fair.
3) Ratsverwandte - National Tax Modifier: +10%
Although free cities and their constitution were republican, the government was oligarchic in nature and ruled by a town council composed of the patrician class, called the town council families (ratsverwandte). These families are economically secure and very important, so it would be wise to keep them ruling, at least partially.
4) Appease the Beisassen - Stability Cost Modifier: -10%
The Beisassen were a lower class of citizen in a free imperial city: small artisans, craftsmen, day laborers and the poor. While the country is run by the rich, it rests on the back of the poor. By appeasing the lower classes we can ensure our country remains stable.
5) Maintain Relations within the Empire - Diplomatic Reputation: +1
We are a part of the Empire, and a fairly important one at that. By maintaining good relations with the Holy Roman Emperor and other powerful states, we can be sure of our long-term existence.
6) The Städtebünde - Global Trade Power: +10%
The Städtebünde were city leagues, groups of free cities created to promote and defend their own interests. One notable example of this is the Hanseatic League.
7) Maintain Agents at the Reichshofrat - May infiltrate administration / Diplomats: +1
The Reichshofrat, or the Aulic Council, was one of two supreme courts in the Empire. It had exclusive jurisdiction in feudal affairs, as well as a number of other important things. As such, many free cities found it profitable to maintain agents at the Aulic Council, to ensure that the judgements made there don't affect the independence of the city, drain the city's treasury, or generally do something against their best interest.
Ambitions - Morale of Armies: +10%

Nation Ideas for Corsica, Sardinia and Sicily, as suggested by @exaenae , retrieved from here:

Corsica
Traditions - Hostile Core-Creation Cost on Us: +25% / Shipbuilding Time: -5%
1) Dominate Genoese Trade - Global Trade Power: +10%
The Genoans don't like us, and we don't like them. By focusing on trading in their trade node, we can let them know of our strength in the only way they'll understand and chip away at their trade income.
2) Supply Ships - Naval Attrition: -15% / Trade Range: +15%
We should obviously focus on our navy. Our capital is on an island, and we must protect our homeland. The best way to do that is to build up a navy, and organize a system of supply ships around the coast to make sure the patrol keeps patrolling.
3) Mountain of the Sea - Attrition for Enemies: +1
Corsica has often been called 'mountain of the sea' due to its mountainous nature amd the fact that it's an island. Invasions by our enemies will therefore be much harder.
4) Bank of Saint George - Interest per Annum: -1
The Genoese may hate us, but they can't escape the need for money. By loaning money from the Bank of Saint George, we can pull some strings to get lower interest rates.
5) Corsican Old Cities - Development Cost: -10%
Corsican old cities served as cores for eventual expansion and urbanization of the areas around them. We should continue developing these cities for our country to prosper.
6) Standardized Galley Designs - Galley Cost: -20%
Galleys are an incredibly important part of navies in the Mediterranean. They are fast, agile and deadly. By standardizing the designs for galleys we can produce them faster, cheaper and better.
7) Ally of the French - Diplomatic Reputation: +1
Historically, Corsica has often been allied to the French. The French are one of the most powerful European nations, so focusing on maintaining good relations with them would be a wise thing to do.
Ambition - Morale of Navies: +15%

Sardinia
Traditions - Ship Costs: -10% / Blockade Efficiency: +20%
1) Regnum Sardiniae et Corsicae - Yearly Papal Influence: +1
The Kingdom of Sardinia originally consisted of Corsica and Sardinia. Sovereignty over both islands was claimed by the Pope, as a fief, the Kingdom of Sardinia and Corsica.
2) Genoese Support - Trade Efficiency: +10%
Historically, Sardinian attempts at independence from the Aragonese was supported by the Genoans. By improving relations with the Genoese we can strengthen our relationship, as well as earn benefits to trading in their capital.
3) Repel the Barbary Pirates - Galley Combat Ability: +15%
Sardinia was consistently attacked by pirates from North Africa, which lead to the island's decline. By improving our naval fighting technique we can protect our coastlines from the pirates.
4) Stamenti - National Unrest: -1
The Stamenti was the parliament of Sardinia, consisting of representatives of the state's provinces. By granting each province its representative we can ensure our entire realm remains unrest-free and firmly under our control.
5) Fund the Sardinian Armada - Heavy Ship Combat Ability: +10% / Yearly Navy Tradition Decay: -0.5%
We don't have any colonies, or at least not yet. Still, the desire for a grand navy is ever prominent in a country whose landscape is dominated by islands. By funding shipwrights and educating captains we can ensure our armada is up to scratch.
6) Found the University of Cagliari - Technology Cost: -5%
Founded in 1607, the University of Cagliari was the first university on Sardinia, founded among the lines of old Spanish universities. It was shortly followed by the University of Sassari. By opening educational institutions we can ensure our technological advancements are up to date.
7) Spanish Towers - Fort Defense: +10%
In the late 15th Century, the Spanish built a series of watchtowers along the Sardinian coast to protect the island against Ottoman incursions. This provided the island with a great deal of defense.
Ambition - Yearly Navy Tradition: +1

Sicily
Traditions - Naval Force Limit Modifier: +20% / Naval Leader Maneuver: +1
1) Church of the Holy Spirit - Tolerance of the True Faith: +2
The Chiesa dello Spirito Santo (Church of the Holy Spirit) is a Norman church located in Palermo. The church was founded between 1173 and 1178 by the archbishop of Palermo, and its property was enriched by donations of the King William II of Sicily.
2) University of Catania - Idea Cost: -10%
The first university in Sicily was founded in the city of Catania in 1434. We should continue encouraging people to enroll in the university to find new talent.
3) Reclaim the Kingdom of Sicily - Core-Creation Cost: -10%
The Kingdom of Sicily extended over much of Southern Italy at its largest extent. We should reclaim these territories, now Neapolitan, and make Italy our own once again!
4) Catanesi Renaissance - Yearly Prestige: +1
Because of its isolation, the Renaissance largely surpassed the Kingdom of Sicily. However Catania, in the 14th Century still became one of Italy's most important cultural, artistic and political centers.
5) Noble Admirals - Yearly Navy Tradition: +1
Sons of nobles tend to pursue a career in the army. However, on an island nation, encouraging the nobility to pursue being a captain may be a better course of action.
6) Transport Reinforcement System - Transport Cost: -33% / Transport Combat Ability: +10%
Other countries often ignore them, but there may be no ship more useful than a transport. We should build them better and sturdier, and focus on reinforcement via our transport ships. They are faster and more convenient than our usual methods of reinforcement.
7) Silk Exports - Goods Produced Modifier: +15%
In the 17th Century, Sicily's silk exports exceeded its grain exports. By encouraging silk production we can profit!
Ambition - Mercenary Cost: -15%

National Ideas for Chile, La Plata and Peru, as suggested by @exaenae , retrieved from here:

Chile
Traditions - Infantry Combat Ability: +10% / Yearly Navy Tradition: +1
1) Government Junta of Chile - Yearly Republican Tradition: +0.5
The First Government Junta was an organ established to rule Chile following the deposition and imprisonment of King Ferdinand VII. This was the first step in the Chilean struggle for independence.
2) Andean Defenses - Fort Maintenance: -20%
Our position in the Andes is an excellent one, at least regarding defense. Establishing forts and outposts in the Andes to improve defensiveness.
3) Encourage Traders - Trade Efficiency: +10%
In order to improve the income of our country, we must encourage traders and merchants to move here by providing them with benefits.
4) Andean Mines - Goods Produced Modifier: +20%
Due to our country being dominated by mountainous terrain, we are in a great position to exploit our mines and found new ones.
5) Where the Land Ends - Trade Steering: +20%
Our positioning in South America means we can control a good amount of trade flowing from the Pacific to the Atlantic and vice-versa.
6) Government Funded Shipbuilders - Shipbuilding Time: -15%
Our coastline is very long. As such, our navy is as important, or even more important than our army. By funding shipbuilders from our own pockets, we can make sure ships get made when we need them to.
7) Found the Primera Escuadra Nacional - Heavy Ship Combat Ability: +20%
Create Chile's First National Fleet to protect our great nation, and the Academy for Young Midshipmen to ensure the ship's sailors are the best possible.
Ambition - National Manpower Modifier: +20%

La Plata
Traditions - Land Force Limit Modifier: +30% / Settler Chance: +10%
1) River of Silver - Global Trade Power: +10%
Río de la Plata is one of the most important rivers in South America. Our most populated cities are located around it, its many species of fish provide food for our citizens, and even our country is named after it.
2) Cerro de Potosí - National Tax Modifier: +25%
Our country's in control of Cerro de Potosí, one of, if not the largest silver mine in the world. We can exploit this rich hill for all it's worth and make a fortune doing it.
3) Found National Mint - Yearly Inflation Reduction: +0.10
By founding a national mint, we can make sure all of the silver we mine is properly turned into currency, as well as administer the creation of new coins.
4) Mercantilist Policies - Provincial Trade Power Modifier: +10%
The restrictions imposed on us by the Spanish regarding trade were high. Later rulers sought to allow commerce to flow through La Plata, but we never quite got what we wanted. Now that we are independent, we can trade however we want and introduce a new set of policies to help that.
5) High Court of Buenos Aires - National Unrest: -1
Composing of two audiencias, the Real Audiencia de Buenos Aires resided in Buenos Aires, governing over the territories of Rio de la Plata. By reinstating this high court and appointing our best officials to run it, we can ensure justice for our citizens.
6) Commerce Consulate of Buenos Aires - Merchants: +1 / Trade Efficiency: +10%
The Consulate of Commerce of Buenos Aires was one of the most important institutions in Rio de la Plata. Built on the request of local merchants, it functioned as a commercial court and as a society of economic development. Largely a guild of merchants, the Commerce Consulate was subject to the Spanish Crown. Now that we have gained independence, we can take control of this institution, and turn ourselves into a global trading power.
7) Ensure Competent Administration - Yearly Republican Tradition: +0.5
Governors would often bribe their way to rulership of Rio de la Plata. We say, no more! In this new independent country, we will put our rulers under immense scrutiny to ensure they are completely capable of running our country.
Ambition - Province Warscore Cost: -10%

Peru
Traditions - National Manpower Modifier: +10% / Reinforce Speed: +20%
1) Iglesia de la Companía de Jesus - Missionary Strength: +1%
The construction of the Church of the Society of Jesus was started in 1576 by the Jesuits. Being built over an underground chapel, it is considered one of the best examples of colonial baroque architecture in the Americas.
2) Royal Commentaries of Peru - National Unrest: -1
Written by Garcilaso de la Vega, 'Comentarios Reales de los Incas' was his most well-known work. The Commentary had two volumes: the first about Inca life, and the second about the Spanish conquest of the Inca empire. Later on, Charles III of Spain banned the book, but now that we are independent we should continue circulating it. It'll educate people about our history and make everyone's mutual hatred for our previous colonial overlord even stronger.
3) Battle Ready Shipwrights - Global Ship Repair: +10%
We should employ our country's finest shipwrights to work for the state. This way, if our fleet suffers a crushing defeat at the hands of our enemies, the ships can be repaired and ready to go much quicker than before.
4) Mountain Forts - Fort Defense: +20%
Our glorious republic is dominated by mountainous terrain of the Andes. By building cities and fortifications in the mountains we can ensure our country remains protected.
5) Naval Investiture - Heavy Ship Cost: -10% / Light Ship Cost: -10%
Our navy isn't quite as glorious as it should be. Being surrounded by nations with great armadas, we should put a much larger focus on our navy than we are doing currently.
6) Mixed Culture - Prestige Decay: -1%
Built on the ground of many ancient civilizations, Peru has a varied culture. We should cherish this fact, and even promote our country as the bastion of acceptance.
7) Fund Merchant Travels - Trade Range: +50% / Trade Steering: +5%
Other countries have their merchants act on a largely local scale. By encouraging our merchants to explore new lands and funding their travels, we can reach lands further away than our competitors and turn ourselves into a trading superpower.
Ambition - Yearly Navy Tradition Decay: -2%

Ideas for Estonia and Karelia, as suggested by @exaenae , retrieved from here:

Estonia
Traditions - Cavalry Combat Ability: +10% / Trade Efficiency: +5%
1) Free City of Reval - Global Trade Power: +10%
The city of Reval got Lübeck Rights in 1248 and joined the Hanseatic League. We can encourage Hanseatic merchants to increase their presence in the Estonian lands for everyone's benefit.
2) Baltic Crossroads - Accepted Culture Threshold: -10%
We are surrounded by many countries of many different cultures. We must learn to be accepting of them. Then we can expand in any direction we wish.
3) Terra Mariana - Manpower Recovery Speed: +10%
Created after the Livonian Crusade in 1207, Terra Mariana was established as a principality of the Holy Roman Empire at first, but the Pope later proclaimed it as directly subject to the Holy See. The lands within Terra Mariana now sit in the hands of various different countries, but we should strive to unite the region once more. And we cannot do that without sufficient manpower.
4) Baltic Reformation - Tolerance of Heretics: +2
When the Reformation began with Martin Luther and his 95 theses, the religious map of the Baltic coastline was changed greatly. We don't necessarily have to make protestantism the country's official religion, but we can at least try to understand their points and accept their faithful.
5) Estonian Grain Trade - Goods Produced Modifier: +10%
Our land is fertile and rich in various grains, most commonly wheat. We can try to increase the amount of goods in our provinces to come that one step closer to establishing a monopoly on grain. It's not among the most expensive of goods, but you can never have too much grain.
6) Unite the Two Voivodeships - Development Cost: -10%
Currently Estonia is a country divided into two autonomous regions. By bringing them together and uniting our country, our people and our nation can prosper.
7) Fabricated Maps - Time to Fabricate Claims: -20% / Aggressive Expansion Impact: -5%
Estonia has existed since the Viking ages. We can fabricate maps from these times to prove that some lands belong to us, even if they truly don't. Since nobody is immortal yet, they won't be able to see through our schemes.
Ambition - Diplomats: +1

Karelia
Traditions - Regiment Cost: -10% / Land Attrition: -10%
1) Ladoga Fishing Industry - National Manpower Modifier: +10%
Lake Ladoga is incredibly rich in fish. By encouraging the nation's fishermen to move to the cities surrounding the lake, as well as founding fishing outposts, we will have enough food for our citizens.
2) Between Two Seas - Ship Costs: -10%
Our country stretches from the White Sea to the Gulf of Finland and the Baltic Sea. To protect our coastlines we must make improvements in our shipbuilding technology.
3) The Sestra River - Trade Steering: +10%
The Karelian lands originally followed the Sestra and Neva Rivers. By encouraging trade movement along these rivers we can profit.
4) The Two Karelian Realms - Years of Separatism: -5
The Treaty of Nöteborg in 1323 divided Karelia between Sweden and Novgorod. This division remained through the centuries. We of all people know how it feels to be divided, so we can treat our subjects with more understanding.
5) Baltic Shipyards - Naval Force Limit Modifier: +20%
While the Baltic Sea is packed with naval activity, the White Sea is all but barren except for a few small trade fleets. We should mostly ignore the White Sea and focus our shipbuilding efforts on increasing our presence in the Baltic.
6) Valaam Monastery - Missionary Strength: +1%
The Valaam Monastery is an Orthodox Monastery in Karelia, located on Valaam island in Lake Ladoga. When it was constructed is unclear, but what is very clear is its importance to the faithful of Karelia.
7) From the Varanginians to the Greeks - Global Trade Power: +10%
Lake Ladoga formed a vital part of the trade route from the Varanginians to the Greeks. We know its significance, but other nations sadly don't. We should have our merchants spread the word of our nation and encourage more trade to flow into Karelia.
Ambitions - Manpower Recovery Speed: +15%

Ideas for Aquileia and Montferrat, as suggested by @exaenae , retrieved from here:

Aquileia
Traditions - Yearly Navy Tradition: +0.5 / Naval Force Limit Modifier: +25%
1) Patriarchate of Aquileia - Prestige Decay: -1%
Founded in 539, the Patriarchate of Aquileia was at its height one of the largest independent Italian states.
2) Aquileian Legacy - Core-Creation Cost: -10%
Some of our originally owned lands aren't even considered part of the Patriarchate at the moment. We must set this right.
3) Volchero and Bertrand - Idea Cost: -5%
In the early 13th century, under Volchero and Bertrand the Patriarchate flourished economically and culturally. By reminding people of these times we can flourish once more.
4) Repopulate Aquileia - Development Cost: -10%
In the 14th century, the city of Aquileia was destroyed by earthquakes, depopulated by famines and reduced to only a few hundred citizens. This caused the capital of the province to be moved elsewhere. We must repopulate our namesake and make it glorious once more.
5) Constitutiones Patriae Foriiulii - Negative religious tolerance no longer gives any penalties
In March 1355, the Aquileian parliament codified a consitution for Friuli, called the Constitutiones Patriae Foriiulii. Even though it was amended a few times, this remained the backbone of our fundamental law.
6) Piu a forma di repubblica che di principato - Stability Cost Modiifer: -10%
Friuli under the patriarchs had more the form of a republic than of a principality, as described by Count Girolamo di Porcia. We can reinforce this belief to make for a more stable country.
7) Adriatic Trade - Diplomatic Technology Cost: -15%
There is no escaping the fact that most Mediterranean trade routes flow through the Adriatic. Unfortunately for us, these lucrative trade routes are mostly controlled by Venetian and Ragusan merchants. Ensuring improvements in trade technology is vital if we want to remain competitive in this market, at least until we can come up with a more permanent solution.
Ambition - Light Ship Combat Ability: +15%

---

Montferrat
Traditions - Yearly Prestige: +1 / Fort Defense: +20%
1) Palaiologoi - Yearly Legitimacy: +1 / Chance of New Heir: +50%
The Palaiologos dynasty ruled over the Byzantine empire until its very demise. This, however, did not mean the end for the dynasty itself, as its members are still thriving in our very own nation.
2) Crusader State - Morale of Armies: +10%
Some Marquises of Montferrat participated in the crusades. Some would never come back, while some would be immensely succesful, taking over swathes of territories from the infidel. We must honor these brave men and remind our men of what they are protecting.
3) Revised Tax Policies - National Tax Modifier: +10%
In order to secure more income for the state, we have decided to revise our tax collection policies. (I know this one's a bit generic but honestly I ran out of material to work with at this point)
4) Conrad of Montferrat - Yearly Army Tradition: +0.5
Conrad of Montferrat was a northern Italian nobleman. He was one of the major participants in the Third Crusade and the de facto king of Jerusalem. We can learn from his successes.
5) Develop Montferrat - Development Cost: -10%
In order to make our nation more sustainable, we must encourage development of cities, as well as spend our wealth to found new ones.
6) Montferrat Renaissance - Idea Cost: -10%
We are part of Italy, the cradle of the renaissance. The strong impact of the renaissance is no less felt in the Margraviate of Montferrat than it is in Rome or Venice.
7) Fecisti Patriam Diversis de Gentibus Unam - Accepted Culture Threshold: -20%
Italy is culturally divided, but we must spend our efforts to be more accepting of other Italians. Only then can our nation prosper.
Ambition - Land Force Limit Modifier: +33%
