Execute decision.pngForm Bharat (as Eastern Aryan)

Form the mighty Bharat and bring all the lands of the Indian subcontinent under your rule.

Potential requirements

Flag of Bharat Bharat does not exist.
The country:

  • is not a subject nation other than a tributary state.
  • is not a nomad nation.
  • is not at war.

  • has embraced Feudalism.png Feudalism
  • has a culture of the Eastern Aryan culture group.
  • owns its core provinces:
    • Multan (506), Lahore (507), Surat (517), Delhi (522), Central Doab (524), Madurai (536), Tondainadu (539), Daulatabad (545), Cuttack (552), Pataliputra (558), Gauda (563), Assam (566), Bidar (1948), Halar (2052), Kumari (4410), and Mansura (4503).


The country:


Attack overlord as soon as possible before they ally Bahmanis. It will take 10-15 loans to get a clean independence war. Try to annex Indian minors, and avoid taking provinces that Vijayanagar desires. Get exploration ideas first to colonize Australia and improve your economic base for future wars. Stall for a while before you get to ally Bahmanis or any other major Vijayanagar's rival. Get quantity or defensive ideas next and go over the force limit to secure the first war. Don't rush for cotton provinces right away, your goal is to cripple Vijayanagar before you kill them. If you also work on The Buddhists Strike Back, go for Religious ideas next. It will also give you CB against Muslim countries. Be careful with expanding to Indonesia as it will give you AE with other Sunni states and overall is not really worth the effort for the achievement run. Once you annex Vijayanagar, your economy will be secured anyway. At this point, you will have 2 major forces in India besides yourself, ally one and kill the other. Prioritize taking border provinces cutting them off Timurids or Ming tributaries so that you don't have to start a huge war for 1-2 provinces.
