The Eastern European regions are all part of the Eastern Europe super-region. The southern regions serve as the main theater of conflict between the Flag of Ottomans Ottomans and the European nations. The central regions are the historical birthplace of the Flag of Commonwealth Commonwealth while the northeastern parts saw the rise of Flag of Russia Russia. The area sees a change in the dominant religion the further away it gets from the main heartland; from Catholicism Catholic in the central continent to Orthodoxy Orthodox in the eastern parts and to Sunni Islam Sunni around the Black Sea.

The break-down of the Eastern European regions are as follows:

Government types

  • Government monarchy.png Autocracy and Feudal Nobility are the dominant government types in these parts, with Russian Principality predominating in the eastern parts.
  • A few Government theocracy.png Theocratic governments forms are located in the northern part (along those are the Monastic Orders).
  • A few Government republic.png Republics are spread around (Plutocracy and Veche Republic).
  • Government steppe horde.png Steppe Nomads (and some Tribal form) governments start to appear around the Black Sea.

Religions

  • Catholicism Catholic still dominant in areas closer to the center of the continent.
  • Sunni Islam Sunni appears around the areas surrounding Black Sea.
  • Orthodoxy Orthodox is spread in the rest of area, at times as a buffer between the two above.

Technology groups

  • Western technology group Western in the northern and southwestern parts.
  • Anatolian technology group Anatolian and Nomadic technology group Nomadic in the southern parts and around the Black Sea respectively.
  • Eastern technology group Eastern is spread in the rest of area.

Culture groups

  • Germanic and a bit of Ugric in the most northern parts.
  • West Slavic and Carpathian in the western parts.
  • South Slavic and Baltic in the central parts.
  • East Slavic and Tatar in the eastern parts and around the Black Sea.
  • Byzantine (along with Latin) and Levantine in the southern parts.

Formable / Reformable nations[edit]

Some of these nations don't exist at the 1444 campaign start. They can appear if another nation chooses to form them.

Revolter nations[edit]

These nations don't exist and also lack cores at the 1444 campaign start. They can still appear if Separatist rebels.png Separatist rebels manage to take control of their cultural provinces.


Regional Nations

Notes: These articles refer to the state of the world at the start of the grand-campaign (1444-11-11); meaning, if a nation is picked in other time points it may have different attributes. Table listings include: [1] 1444 starting nations, [2] 1444 releasable nations. Other tags, [3] later start/pure formables/revolters ("wild card" stats), are mentioned at the top. Worth noting, [4] a nation is assigned a home region based on its capital's location, [5] location names use the default localisation for consistency reasons (for searching in-game enter the provided province numbers).
