Madurai as a Dravidian nation can form Flag of Bharat Bharat.

Execute decision.pngForm Bharat (as Dravidian)

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

Potential requirements
  • Playing with normal or historical nations
  • Was never an end-game tag

Flag of Bharat Bharat does not exist.
The country:

If the country is AI-controlled,

  • it must have at least 15 cities.
  • is not former colonial nation.
  • is not custom nation

The country:

  • is not a subject nation other than a tributary state.
  • is not a nomad nation.
  • is not at war.
  • has a Icon stability.pngstability of 3.
  • has embraced Feudalism.png Feudalism
  • has a culture of the Dravidian culture group.
  • owns its core provinces:
    • Multan (506), Surat (517), Central Doab (524), Madurai (536), Tondainadu (539), Vijayanagar (541), Daulatabad (545), Cuttack (552), Pataliputra (558), Bidar (1948), Halar (2052), Kandy (2099), Kumari (4410), Seringapatam (4421), Ujjain (4461), and Mansura (4503).


The country:


Except for Kotte who can build a galley fleet to prevent Vijayanagar from crossing the strait, playing in South India is very difficult. Get Exploration ASAP and start colonizing the Indian Ocean, Australia (just enough to not create a CN) and Moluccas. When Vija attacks they won't be able to get 100% war score against you because they won't be able to reach all your colonies. In my game that war lasted over 50 years at which point Bahmanis attacked and I was able to White Peace Vija and ally Bahmanis.
