Lanfang is a country that does not exist in the 1444 start date but appears from 1777 onwards and starts as an oligarchic republic with its capital in Kundian/Sambas (640).

However, forming Lanfang using the Flag of Sambas Sambas decision "Invite Kongsi Federations" gives it the unique government reform "Kongsi Federation" and sets Pontianak (4802) as the capital (It appears that the dynamic province name for Lanfang was not updated, as before 1.31, the province Pontianak (640) would change its name to Kundian, but as province 640 is now Sambas, province 4802 should be the one to change its name).

Formation[edit | edit source]

Flag of Lanfang Lanfang can be formed by Flag of Sambas Sambas if the Hakka province of Waichow is not owned by Ming and Sambas owns the province of Pontianak but less than 10 provinces in total.
