Madurai is a country in India.
Madurai as a Dravidian nation can form Bharat.
Form Bharat (Dravidian, Hindustani, Western Aryan)
If the country is AI-controlled,
You start as an OPM which is a 9 dev province with a weak economy. You must overcome this, however.
Vijayanagar will always be hostile and wants your only province. You have cores on their southern provinces, because you're the primary nation of Tamil culture, those cores won't go away. So you don't have to waste a diplomat on creating a spy network on them but don't attack them by yourself because you need someone larger, prefferably Bahmanis, to take them on and gain your cores back.
Beforehand, Venad, your neighbor, who will always be your rival and will not have an ally should be your first target. Build up to force limit and hire a general from the Nobles estate, declare war and take all of their land and money to repay any loans you may have. Then fabricate claims on the Maldives which will have no allies and annex them. While you're doing this, keep improving relations with Bahmanis because you will need them.
When you annex all other nations in the area, fabricate claim on Mysore and attack them as soon as possible to take Mysore and vassalize them.
When you ally Bahmanis, see if they are willing to join your war and declare war on Vijayanagar. In this war, you want Jaffna and most of your cores back from them.
At this point, you can just attack them again after the truce expires and you don't need Bahmanis' help anymore. You are in a good position to gain the Pandya Empire achievement and from there, it is up to you to conquer whatever lands you want.
