Main article: Swabian minors missions

Ulm shares Swabian minor missions with other Swabian nations, focusing on dominating and eventually forming   Swabia, granting an additional 8 missions.



 Form Swabia

The old Duchy of Swabia ended with the execution of Conradin, the last of the Hohenstaufen Dukes, in 1268. Since then, a plethora of countries, bishoprics and free cities have emerged to fill the void left by the fall of the Hohenstaufens. However, these small states are often unable to protect their liberty - thus, the Habsburgs of Austria have built up considerable territorial holdings in Swabia, which they call "Further Austria". We must restore unity to Swabia if we are to end this pattern of outside encroachment.

Regardless of the absence of a strong, central authority, our nation is prospering. The Hanseatic League, formed by hundreds of towns in northern Germany, has contributed to the prosperity of our nation.
