Provinces owned by the country's colonial nations count for the achievement. Portugal's a good nation to try for this achievement.

Yes Have all provinces in the Indian region

It's required for the player to properly own all provinces inside the Indian region (i.e. protectorates/vassals don't count to trigger the achievement). Edirne and Constantinople are European, so the Ottomans have the best shot at a quick land rush into India.

Click to view the full version size.
The description of the required provinces is vague ("Sicily", "Algiers", etc.) and varies between "southern" and "Mediterranean" coast of Spain, so I'm unsure about a few--Malta, Cadiz, and Andalucia.
