Prussia (German: Preußen) is one of the formable countries in Europe and can be formed by Brandenburg, the Teutonic Order, or any country with Prussian, Saxon, or Pomeranian culture (besides Germany and a unified, centralised Holy Roman Empire). It also exists in campaigns started in 1525 or later. Prussia is a powerful military state with strong morale, discipline and tradition; enough to ensure strong generals in commanding large armies, well-trained troops in aforementioned armies and good military rulers.

If played correctly, Prussia can dominate Central Europe and the rest of the HRE. Prussia is considered one of the more advanced nations due to the difficult requirements and challenges that must be overcome to form, therefore it is not recommended for Beginners. However, once inner quarrels are settled and the homeland is secured it can easily become one of the most entertaining yet still challenging nations. Prussia can also play a decisive role in the League Wars.

Formation

There are three possible decisions that form Prussia. One is for the Flag of Teutonic Order Teutonic Order, and is based on the secularization of that order into the Duchy of Prussia in 1525. One is for Flag of Brandenburg Brandenburg, based on the Electors of Brandenburg, having inherited the Duchy of Prussia, crowning themselves King in Prussia in 1701. The last is for any Prussian, Saxon or Pomerian German minor, representing another German prince taking the path that Brandenburg did historically. Note that the latter two decisions will elevate the nation to kingdom rank and will consequently make it leave the Holy Roman Empire unless it is an elector.
