Danzig is an incredibly valuable province because of its trade bonuses (Danzig can very easily be the dominant trade power in the Baltic Sea Trade Node). Because of this, Pomerania, Poland, and the Teutonic Order will do everything within their power to annex it. Survival will be Danzig's greatest priority.
Released as a Teutonic vassal
If released as a vassal from the Teutonic Order, Danzig will need to improve relations with nations that will be willing to support Danzig in a war of independence against the Teutonic Order. Once independent, Danzig's greatest threats will be Poland and Pomerania until the truce with the Teutonic Order ends. For this it can be greatly beneficial to improve relations with Austria and become part of the Holy Roman Empire. This will bring Austria to defend Danzig if Poland or the Teutonic Order attack. This will make it less likely for Poland or the Teutonic Knights to attack early on, especially as they will concentrate on fighting each other instead. Alliances with Austria, The Hansa or Brandenburg will help defend against Pomerania.
Due to the great trade bonuses of the Danzig province, the Danzig traditions, and national ideas, Danzig's focus should be to build up trade power in the Baltic. The easiest expansion possibility is annexing Pomerania, but depending on Danzig's allies the Teutonic Order is also a possibility (with the added bonus that their provinces are within the Baltic trade region). Once this is done Danzig should have a wealthy trading state, with great opportunities for expansion following similar strategies to those of Pomerania or the Teutonic Order.
