Navarra is a one-province nation in northern Iberia. It is the only Basque nation in the game and starts off with the same dynasty as Aragon and Castile, either of whom usually vassalize Navarra. Navarra is the only country that can form both France and Spain without culture shifting. Historically most of Navarra was incorporated into Spain in 1512, while the northern part entered into a personal union with France in 1598, being merged into the kingdom proper in 1620.

Global expansion in newly discovered areas and the establishment of colonies is transforming Spain into one of the most powerful and wealthiest nations of our time. Spanish explorers are constantly moving into new lands and extending our borders. Immense amounts of gold and silver are being brought back to our motherland, filling the coffers of our state Treasury.
Navarra is a challenging choice, as they are the smallest Iberian nation while having a relatively tough achievement called Basque in Glory. They could form Spain which gives you more balanced idea and powerful mission tree.
Castile, France and Aragon are strong nations who also want your provinces.

Therefore, the player will have to quickly find good allies with enough favors such as France or England.
The player may find France to be the better option, as the player can gain more favors by promising to give the French their cores when asking them to join a war against England. Castile could be a good starting ally, as it could speed up crushing England and Portugal Alliance. The player will often find PU event which allow the player to claim Aragon throne. If done correctly with luck, the player could fight on Aragon and then Castile separately by PU CB.
During Age of Reformation, if the player wants to get Basque in Glory achievement, Navarra should already control Castile and Aragon as PU subjects. If the ideas selected correctly, these nation should be annexed and converted quickly.
France, Berbers and Italians could be the next reasonable target as the trade income could be boasted from these region. Moving the capital into the Genoa node also greatly helps with trade income. Alternatively, colonization is possible if the player able to take many coastal provinces from Berbers and Portugal.
As Navarra's idea could be improved by forming Spain, the player will often form Spain right after the annexation and continue the colonization and Spanish inquisition. Russia, France, Austria and England could be late game allies.
