Tibet is a formable nation in Asia, and can be created by countries with both Tibetan as their primary national culture and the Vajrayana religion. Once formed, it is bordering Ming to its east, Chagatai to its north, and the numerous Indian states to its south and west.
At one point in the distant past, more than 600 years before the timeframe of EU4, Tibet was united under the banner of the Tibetan Empire and ruled over large tracts of land encompassing all of Tibet, the Tarim Basin and Gansu regions to the north and even parts of India and China. After a time of success and prosperity, however, the Tibetan Empire, like all empires, fell into decline and finally disintegrated and collapsed in the mid-9th century.
By 1444, the Tibetan Empire is long gone and the Tibetan plateau is now home to four successor states; U, Tsang, Kham and Guge. While fractured and weakened, should one of these successor states rise to conquer all of its competitors and unite Tibet, they could use the Tibetan plateau as a very defensible stronghold and powerbase to restore the old empire and perhaps even launch a campaign to conquer all of China and India.
Form Tibetan Nation
The Tibetan Plateau was once united under an empire sprawling beyond it. By bringing together the Tibetan people once again, we can revive this legacy.
Tibet does not exist.

The Dalai Lama takes control
After years of misrule by weak kings who were puppets of foreign powers, the Dalai Lama, long the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people, has taken full control of the government. His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, seeks your advice. What kind of foreign policy should we pursue?
The year is before 1642.

Meeting with the Khans
The Dalai Lama regards the assembled throng of petty Khans as though they were his trained mastiffs. Through them he knows his dominion over Tibet will be secured; he must only choose how. The safest plan would be to secure a treaty with the Khans, seeking their assurance that they will do their utmost to defend Buddhism in Tibet, in particular the body of the reborn bodhisattva himself.
A more radical approach has also occurred to the enlightened monk; if the Dalai Lama were to invite one of the Khans to rule as his puppet, he would never need fear resistance from Tibet’s contentious noble families. Ruling from the shadows holds a certain appeal.
He turns to the Khans to announce his will, a placid smile hiding his veiled ambition.
