The Mongol Empire is a reformable country in Asia. It can only be formed by the Golden Horde, the Ilkhanate, or the Yuan which are also formable nations and have to be formed first and the Mongol Empire itself can also only be formed if the forming country has Tatar or Altaic primary culture. Reforming the Empire will also grant the forming country a unique government type, which is an upgrade from the Steppe nomad government type.
The Mongol Empire has no unique national idea set and will simply inherit the national ideas from the nation that forms it. The Mongol Empire also gains access to a decision to release the Ilkhanate as a march, even if it was the original founding nation.
One benefit from forming the Mongol Empire is that one gains specialised banners troops in all provinces with your primary culture. This can create an unstoppable army; powerful, yet not a drain on your manpower or your economy. Banners have +5% discipline, cost only 25% manpower to reinforce and their maintenance cost is -50% the maintenance of their equivalent non-banner regiments.
The Lions of the North DLC introduced an alternative way to form the Mongol Empire. It can be formed by any country with the Holy Horde government reform (acquired through the Teutonic Order crusader mission tree). Doing it this way will not change the government to Great Mongol State and also not enable banners.
