Croatia is a nation in Eastern Europe. It exists in 1444 as a junior partner of Flag of Hungary Hungary, having cores on the provinces of Dalmatia and Istria, which are under the control of Flag of Venice Venice. If Croatia ceases to exist it can be reformed by countries with Croatian culture and the required provinces.
