Country name is a SIZE country in REGION. Short (at most two paragraphs) description of situation in 1444. If the country has a unique startup intro it can be added before the player's written intro using the {{startup}} template.

Any on-page content as as formation, events, decisions, and etc. should be added using the wiki's transclusion ability.


If the country is a formable country, their formation requirements go here. Otherwise, leave out the section. Almost all country formation decision are transcluded from the formation decisions page. Example:


Execute decision.pngForm Spanish Nation Militarily

Spanish explorers are constantly moving into new lands and extending our borders. Immense amounts of gold and silver are being brought back to our motherland, filling the coffers of our state Treasury.

If there are less than 5 events add them to Unique national events page in the country's section. Major events can be shown here using transclusion. Example event:

Main article: List of decision lists

The "Decisions" section follows the same instructions as the "Events" section. Example decision:


Strategy The below is one of many player suggested strategies for Style. Bear in mind, due to the dynamic nature of the game, it may unfold differently for other players.

If you don't have a strategy for the country, simply put {{add|strategy}}. If a strategy guide exists add {{add/strategy}} instead.

Though a strict adherence to the style guidelines is not enforced, please try to follow it as much as possible -- use 3rd person language (the player/England) rather than 1st (I/we) or 2nd (you) person language, don't use too much icons to keep section readable, and be sure to apply some general common sense. If a guide is bad (offensive or too incomprehensible) it will still be removed.

Other than above, write anything you feel might be useful in the guide.

Finally, leave the following at the end of the page, replacing "Europe" with the continent the country is on (your strategy will only be added to this box if it is at least B-ranked):
