Formable nations

From Hearts of Iron 4 Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Formable nations are special nations that do not exist in the 1936 or 1939 starting dates but can be formed through a decision enacted by certain nations provided they fulfill the needed requirements.

They act as cosmetic tags and change the name, flag and map color of the nation, but not other aspects like national focuses or advisors. Many formable nations do, however, grant cores on territory, which are otherwise unavailable, and thus allow a nation to increase its manpower and industrial capacity, in some cases decisively, though more practically, many of these merely represent ultimate end goals for ambitious players. There are a total of 21 formable nations by decision, with several others being formed within focus trees or events.

List of formable nations[edit | edit source]

Andalusia[edit | edit source]

Map of required states for Al-Andalus (in yellow). The blue, green, pink, dark green and dark red represent the Sultanate of Africa, Emirate of Sicily, Umayyad Caliphate, Rashidi Expansion and Northern Expansion decision cores respectively. Stripes indicate states that are not required in the decision but will get cores.

If Flag of Kingdom of Morocco Morocco or any other North African country is able to conquer southern Iberia, they gain access to a category of decisions called The Moorish Restoration, allowing them to revive the long-dead state of Al-Andalus and the caliphate of Cordoba, restoring Moorish rule to Iberia after a hiatus of roughly 440 years (since the collapse of the Emirate of Granada in 1492).

Once Al-Andalus is restored, the newly-formed nation will be able to sweep across the Islamic world, integrating all of North Africa, the Middle East, Arabia, Eastern Anatolia, Persia, and the Caucasus through decisions, eventually allowing them to proclaim the restoration of the Umayyad Caliphate (extant in 661-750 AD), uniting the Islamic world under one caliphate once again, after the collapse of the Ottoman Caliphate in 1922.

Execute decision.pngRestore Al-Andalus


For too long, the Moors have been subjugated and abused by Latin powers. Now we have the ability to restore Al-Andalus and all the former territories of the Caliphate of Cordoba.
With Cordoba, the Emirate of Granada, and the majority of Southern Iberia under our control, we have the unique opportunity to restore the old Sultanate of Al-Andalus and proclaim all of its former territories as rightful parts of our state.

Arabia[edit | edit source]

Map of required states for Arabia.

Representing a single united Arab country for all Arabs, Arabia can be formed by any Arabic nation in the Middle East and the Arabian Peninsula and requires control over the historic Arab world, including the Middle East (the Levant), the Arabian Peninsula and North Africa.

The idea of a united Arabia has existed for almost as long as the Arabs themselves but the version depicted is based on a promise made through the MacMachon-Hussein Correspondence between the Flag of United Kingdom United Kingdom and Arabian separatists in the Ottoman Empire during World War I.

According to the promise, the United Kingdom agreed to recognize Arabian independence and grant the Arabs a united independent state in exchange for having the Arabs collaborate with the British and launching a revolt against the Ottomans.

The promise never came to realization, however, as is was negated by the Sykes-Picot agreement made between Flag of France France and the Flag of United Kingdom United Kingdom in 1916-1917 in which they divided up parts of Arabia amongst themselves while leaving the rest of the territory in the hands of Flag of Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia, Flag of Iraq Iraq, Flag of Yemen Yemen and Flag of Oman Oman, creating a collection of independent but weak and divided Arab states.

Belarusian Union[edit | edit source]

The "Belarusian Union" is a collective term used to refer to three very closely related formable nations, namely; Flag of Estonia-Belarus Estonia-Belarus, Flag of Latvia-Belarus Latvia-Belarus and Flag of Lithuania-Belarus Lithuania-Belarus. These formable nations can be formed by each of the three Baltic States (Flag of Estonia Estonia, Flag of Latvia Latvia, Flag of Lithuania Lithuania) and only one of them can be formed at any given time. The historical background for these nations is that they are each a reconstitution of the short-lived Socialist Soviet Republic of Lithuania and Belorussia, a Soviet puppet state that existed for approxmately five months during the Lithuanian-Soviet War and Polish-Soviet War of 1919-1920.

In order to form this nation, each of the Baltic States must progress down the communismcommunist branch of their national focus tree to overthrow the government through a civil war, which then opens up the option to convert the rest of the Baltic States to communism through a propaganda war (which allows one to form the Flag of Baltic Federation Baltic Federation) as well as acquiring Belarus for even more territory.

  • If the Baltic state opted to align themselves with the Flag of Soviet Union Soviet Union, the Soviets will cede their half of Belarus to the Baltic state, with the rest being acquired through either war or through the Molotov-Ribbentrop-pact and the partition of Flag of Poland Poland.
  • If the Baltic state opted to stay independent and enter opposition, then Belarus must be acquired through adversarial means. The Baltic state must propagandise support for unification in Belarus similar to the Spanish Civil War garrison control system. This starts a countdown timer and when that time runs out, Belarus will be released and a civil war will ignite in it; the victor will be annexed into either the victorious Baltic nation or the USSR. The rest of Belarus must be conquered from Poland by force.

The Flag of Byzantine Empire Byzantine Empire is a formable nation that represents the eastern half of the Roman Empire after the division of the Empire into East and West in 395 AD. After the fall of the Western Roman Empire in 476, the Eastern Roman Empire (also known as Byzantium) would go on to persist for (nearly) another thousand years until its own demise in 1453. Despite being called the Eastern Roman Empire, the Byzantine Empire was predominantly Greek in culture as opposed to the predominantly Latin-culture Western Roman Empire.

Representing a restoration of the Qing Dynasty, the last imperial dynasty of China which was founded in 1636 and ruled China from 1644 until its downfall in the Wuchang uprising and Xinhai Revolution of 1911-1912 (followed by a brief restoration in July 1917), the Flag of Chinese Empire Chinese Empire is a special formable nation in Waking the TigerWaking the Tiger that can only be formed by Flag of Manchukuo Manchukuo through the National Focus Focus man claim the mandate of heaven.png Claim the Mandate of Heaven.

Honor the ConfederacyHonor the Confederacy unlocks a set of decisions to "restore popular support for the new regime by connecting with the past", which in this case entails reforming the Confederacy from the First American Civil War, by doing things such as moving the capital to Richmond (the original confederate capital), "enshrining states' rights", "permitting confederate flags", "celebrating Montgomery Convention Day" and finally, rewriting the American constitution through the constitutional convention.

The nation will also appear (albeit named the Flag of Confederacy of American States Confederacy of American States) in the civil war that occurs when following the communist branch of the American national focus tree.

Dominion of North America[edit | edit source]

The Flag of Dominion of North America Dominion of North America is a special formable nation that can be created from Flag of Dominion of Canada Canada by the Flag of United Kingdom United Kingdom as a component in the formation of the Flag of Imperial Federation Imperial Federation. If the United Kingdom completes the National Focus "Unite the Anglosphere" and conquers and annexes all of the starting territory of the Flag of United States United States, they will unlock a decision named "Create Pan-North American State", which will, when taken, give all US cores to Canada and give Canada cores on that land instead. Canada will also change its name to the "Dominion of North America" and adopt a new flag. If the United Kingdom forms the Imperial Federation while having the Dominion of North America as a puppet, they will gain cores on the entire dominion core territory (comprising all of Canada and the United States) as opposed to just Canada's core territory. It is easily accessible if the Fascist path is taken. If the Monarchy path is taken, usually the only choice available will be to form the United Kingdom of America instead. However should all of the core USA territory is taken by the UK but the US is puppeted by other in the faction, this option will be available. Another option is to not incite a civil war in Canada, and instead puppet them in the peace deal. This will allow you to take the decision after you annex the United States.

Estonia-Finland and the Empire of Finno-Ugra[edit | edit source]

Tracing its origins back to an age long-gone, to the time when the Finno-Ugric peoples inhabited most of Russia and Ukraine before the arrival of the slavic peoples during the Migration Period of 300-800 AD pushed them out of their homeland and to the brink of extinction. Today, only two finnic nations remain, Flag of Estonia Estonia and Flag of Finland Finland, but these nations can still pick up the mantle of the finno-ugric peoples and lead them to an ultimate final victory against the slavs by conquering Russia and Ukraine and forming the Flag of Empire of Finno-Ugra Empire of Finno-Ugra and securing their place in history as one of the great underdog victors and putting the slavs into their one and only proper place; on their knees before the Finno-Ugra.

The Flag of Empire of Finno-Ugra Empire of Finno-Ugra can be formed by Flag of Estonia Estonia as part of the fascismfascist branch of their national focus tree. This path has the fascist Vapsid movement gather popular support in Estonia and ultimately marching on the capital city of Tallinn and overthrowing the government in a civil war takeover. After this, the Vapsid movement can pull on its close connections to the similarly facist IKL party in Flag of Finland Finland and can offer direct support to said party to allow them to expand popular support across Finland, culminating in a march on Helsinki and a facist takeover. From here, Estonia stands at a crossroads as to where her identity and destiny lies;

  • She can opt to lean into her Scandinavian side and seek to unite the Nordic countries of Flag of Sweden Sweden, Flag of Norway Norway and Flag of Denmark Denmark under one flag by military force through the rest of the national focuses in that branch. If Estonia then completes the national focus Estonia is Scandinavian, she will gain access to the decision to form the Flag of Nordic League Nordic League.
  • Alternatively, Estonia can decide to lean into her Finno-Ugric side and strengthen ties with Flag of Finland Finland, uniting both nations into the union of Flag of Estonia-Finland Estonia-Finland, mirroring the ambition of Estonian president Konstantin Päts. Once the nations are united, they may begin to mobilise their resources and prepare themselves for war with the Flag of Soviet Union Soviet Union and launch a great war of conquest to annex Russia and Ukraine as well as the northern parts of Flag of Sweden Sweden and Flag of Norway Norway to form the Empire of Finno-Ugra. For best results, one can also opt to puppet the Soviet Union and release every releasable nation from them as puppets as well, thus destroying Russia as unified polity and having Finno-Ugra replace the Russians as the great eastern menace to the rest of Europe.

European Union[edit | edit source]

Map of required states for the European Union.

The Flag of European Union European Union is a formable nation that represents a union between the original 6 countries that started the European Coal and Steel Community in 1952, the predecessor to the modern day European Union.

Historically speaking, Flag of France France is the "legitimate founder" as after World War II with its homeland in ruins, its economy in shambles, its population depleted and its colonial empire breaking apart, France became desperate to avoid spiraling into a complete socio-economic meltdown and in 1956 the French government presented a proposal to form a Franco-British Union with the United Kingdom or simply joining the Commonwealth for aid. Both proposals fell through, and France instead turned to the defeated Axis Powers (Germany and Italy) of all nations and formed the European Coal and Steel Community alongside the Low countries to sustain itself, later reorganizing into the European Union.

Franco-British Union[edit | edit source]

The Flag of Franco-British Union Franco-British Union is a union that Flag of France France and The Flag of United Kingdom United Kingdom can form if France is capitulated by the Germans while allied to the UK, if both countries agree to the union, the United Kingdom will annex France and gain cores of all French cores. All French military units and leaders will be transferred to the UK. While the UK can get the decision regardless of ideology, France can only propose the union if it is Democratic.

Once forming the union it will only remain whilst Britain is at war. Whenever Britain becomes at peace there will be an event to release France, or keep them. Whichever option is chosen the UK will lose its French cores.

The Franco-British Union almost came into being in 1940, where, with France on the verge of defeat, the French and British governments jointly discussed the concept of merging both countries into one and having the French government continue the war from overseas. This ultimately was not to be, as the French government was divided on the issue (seeing the union as little more than an underhanded British attempt to steal France's colonies and make Paris subordinate to London), and eventually the cabinet resigned, Marshal Philippe Petain came to power and concluded a ceasefire and armistice with Flag of Germany Germany, forming Flag of Vichy France Vichy France, with the United Kingdom being left to fight off Germany alone.

Global Defense Council[edit | edit source]

The Flag of Global Defense Council Global Defense Council is a formable "nation", that can be created by the Flag of Regional Defense Council of Aragón Regional Defense Council of Aragón through a National focus of the same name in the Anarchist path for Republican Spain.

Since an anarchist society is inherently incompatible with the way Nation-States are represented in HoI4, the Global Defense Council cannot be treated as a regular nation, state, or country like all others in-game. Instead, it consists of a myriad of local anarchist communes governed through direct democracy, where everyone is equal and there are no higher leaders or other positions of power. Instead of having an actual army to speak of, the anarchists simply focus on arming the people themselves, relying on self-organized militias and paramilitaries.

The "Global Defense Council" part of this "nation" simply exists because the anarchist communes have decided to band together for security and defense and the Global Defense Council itself is merely an organization formed for the purpose of coordinating the collective military actions of the anarchists.


The Global Defense Council possesses the unique ability to generate cores on any state in the world if it can occupy it and raise compliance high enough as in that case, the local population will simply organize into their own anarchist communes and join under the umbrella of the Global Defense Council. Notably, The Global Defense Council is not allowed to create collaborationist governments.

The ability to dynamically core any state comes at the expense of all other countries becoming hostile towards the GDC and will actively take steps to destroy it. The GDC cannot form or join factions and other nations will be hostile towards it. The GDC essentially stands alone against the entire world. A bug however allows other nations to form factions with Global Defense Council.

Representing a realization (in name) of Adolf Hitler's plans to forge a German nation spanning from the Low Countries to the Ural Mountains, Hearts of Iron 4 has far lower requirements for forming it.

To even be able to see the decision to form the Flag of Greater German Reich Greater German Reich, the Flag of German Reich German Reich must be fascist and fully control Ile de France (16) when either France doesn't exist or has capitulated. To actually form the nation the states of Leningrad (195) and Stalingrad (217) must be under German control. In addition, all owned German states must be under German control. In effect, this means an Allied landing will disqualify Germany from forming the Greater German Reich until it is repelled.

Greater Lithuania[edit | edit source]

Formable by Flag of Lithuania Lithuania as part of the fascismfascist branch of their national focus tree, Flag of Greater Lithuania Greater Lithuania represents a restoration of the old Grand Duchy of Lithuania, which existed as early as the early 11th century (consolidated during the 12th century) until its demise during the final partition of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth in 1795.

In order to form this nation, Lithuania must progress down the fascismfascist branch of their national focus tree by opting to free fascist politician Augustinas Voldemaras from prison. As the leader of the fascist Iron Wolf movement, Voldemaras will begin to gain popular support and gradually subvert the government and turn the nation towards fascism. Once in power, Lithuania will now be able to go on the warpath and start expanding into its neighbors, by laying claim to Lower Lithuania (or Königsberg) from Flag of German Reich Germany and Livonia from Flag of Estonia Estonia and Flag of Latvia Latvia, either invade or ideologically align Flag of Poland Poland by supporting their native fascists and demanding the return of Vilnius (Wilno in Polish) from them in either case. Lastly, the ultimate ambition of a resurgent Greater Lithuania is to smash the Flag of Soviet Union Soviet Union and conquer the fertile lands of Ukraine and restore the historical borders of Lithuania from before Russia even existed as a unified polity. When fully realised, Greater Lithuania will comprise the entirety of the Baltics, eastern Poland, all of Ukraine and a large chunk of Western Russia, putting the border between Russia and Greater Lithuania right on the outskirts of Moscow itself, serving as a veritable knife pointed at the heart of Russia and ensuring that Lithuania now has the living space to survive and thrive, with a small and submissive Poland on its western border, a defeated and humiliated Russia on its eastern border and a large dominant Lithuania in the centre.

Holy Roman Empire[edit | edit source]

Map of required states for the Holy Roman Empire

The Flag of Holy Roman Empire Holy Roman Empire is a formable nation that represents the original H.R.E which was formed as a successor nation of the West Roman Empire in 800 and existed from 962 to 1806. It can only be formed by the Flag of German Reich German Reich if they change ideology to Non-Aligned and go through a specific set of events.

Formation

It is a little difficult to reform the Holy Roman Empire as it requires a special set of actions to be taken and requires a little luck in order for the correct events to happen.

To reform this nation, the focus Oppose Hitler must be chosen. In addition, the Hindenburg must survive, by using the air safety regulation decision, by being at war until the 5th of May 1937, or by a 30% chance. After the civil war is won, the focus Revive the Kaiserreich must be chosen, as well as Return of the Kaiser. After this focus is chosen, the Netherlands must be made to block the return of Wilhelm II, and then the option to return Wilhelm III to Germany must be chosen instead. This can be achieved by allowing the Dutch army to be stronger than the German, which, if not achieved through the losses of the civil war, can be done by disbanding most, if not all, of the army. Then, the focus An Alliance with the Shade, as well as its prerequisites, must be completed. Doing so gives three successive decisions: Reinstate Prince Wilhelm's Right of Succession, then Modernize the Succession Laws, and then Request Restoration of British Titles, one after the other after which Flag of United Kingdom Britain proposes a royal ceremony to restore the titles. Victoria Louise must be sent ahead of time to serve as a liaison. Unfortunately, the Royal Family will die in a crash on the Hindenburg, but Victoria Louise survives, becoming Victoria I, the new Kaiserin. With Victoria I in power, Germany is now eligible to restore the Holy Roman Empire and simply needs to conquer the requisite territories to enact the decision.

Execute decision.pngRevive the Holy Roman Empire


The splendor of our Kaiserin knows no bounds, and neither do the borders of our nation. These have now grown to encompass the limits of the old Holy Roman Empire, and the nations in our way are no longer in a position to object to our policies, The Kaiserin has decreed that the current opportunity shall be seized, and that the nation shall embrace its role as the spiritual successor of the Holy Roman Empire. Aquila Elegit Iovis Omnia Vincit!

In order to form Idel-Ural, the constituent republics of the region must be united. Historically there was a short-lived Tatar state during the Russian Revolution in the region by this name.

On the 1st of March, 1918, the Milli Mejlis, also known as the National Council attempted to declare the creation of an Idel-Uralic Republic, but were thwarted by both sides of the Civil War. Today, the concept of a unified nation in the region is still widely unexplored, but if one where to declare it in order to protect the people from Russian Imperialism, the poular support would be great."

Imperial Federation[edit | edit source]

The Flag of Imperial Federation Imperial Federation is a special formable nation that only appears in the Man the GunsMan The Guns DLC and can only be formed by the Flag of United Kingdom United Kingdom as part of its National Focus Tree. The Imperial Federation was a proposal presented in the late 19th and early 20th century as the future of the British Empire was beginning to grow uncertain. Under the Imperial Federation proposal, the British Empire was to be unified into a single federal superstate in order to preserve both the empire and its relevance in the world. This ultimately never happened, as the Great Depression and the outbreak of both World Wars meant that colonial home rule was maintained due to social, military and economic strains and eventually, the British Empire fell apart when the dominions gained independence, with the Flag of United States United States taking Great Britain's place as the primary world superpower. The remnants on the British Empire continue to exist in the form of the Commonwealth of Nations as well as the proposed CANZUK union and Pacific Union. In Hearts of Iron 4, however, with skillful gameplay, a player can not only form the Imperial Federation, thus ensuring the survival and continued existence (and power) of the British Empire, but the empire can even be expanded to the point of becoming something resembling a global hyper-power (i:e something bigger and stronger than even a global superpower).

The formation of the Imperial Federation is one of the lengthiest processes in the game; even if one dedicates all of their efforts to unite the British Empire, one should still not expect to be able to form this nation until 4 years have passed at the earliest (around 1940). Despite that, however, with the Imperial Federation possessing the potential to (at its greatest size) allow one to merge the Flag of United Kingdom United Kingdom, Flag of United States United States, Flag of France France, Flag of Germany Germany, Flag of Italy Italy, Flag of Netherlands Netherlands, Flag of Belgium Belgium, Flag of Luxembourg Luxembourg, Flag of Dominion of Canada Canada, Flag of South Africa South Africa, Flag of British Raj British Raj, Flag of Australia Australia, Flag of New Zealand New Zealand, and with some luck or save-loading, Flag of Spain Spain, Flag of Portugal Portugal, and Flag of Brazil Brazil into a single superstate united under one banner with cores and everything, this is easily by far the strongest formable nation.

The Imperial Federation can be formed with any ideology except for CommunismCommunism.

Formation[edit | edit source]

In order to form the Imperial Federation, the national focusGoal generic national unity.pngReinforce the Empire must be taken to start down on the path to founding the Imperial Federation. After that, the national focus Goal tfv strengthen commonwealth ties.png Commonwealth Ties opens up the branch that ultimately leads to the Imperial Federation. This branch contains a series of national focuses that develop the UK's dominions by adding industry and building slots, along with slightly reducing the dominion's autonomy level due to the investment.

One important focus found in this branch is the Focus generic self management.pngIndian Autonomy which must be completed before the Imperial Conference is begun; otherwise the Flag of British Raj British Raj will never agree to the proposal to form the Imperial Federation. Since this focus grants the Raj increasing autonomy, to annex the Raj as quickly as possible, autonomy should ideally be granted immediately before the Imperial Conference. However, it is possible to form the Imperial Federation without India; if they reject but all other dominions accept, you'll be given a choice to either continue forming the Federation with the other dominions but let India become free, or keep the British Raj as a subject but not form the Federation at all.

Throughout this entire process, the United Kingdom must ensure that it maintains control over all of its dominions (Flag of Canada Canada, Flag of South Africa South Africa, Flag of British Raj British Raj, Flag of Australia Australia and Flag of New Zealand New Zealand) as they are all required for the final focus. It doesn't matter if some dominions break away before the Imperial Conference begins, as they can be reconquered and re-puppeted (although losing South Africa can cause complications in getting their cores - see Note 2 below). The UK simply needs to control all of the dominions while the two final focuses are carried out.

As Democratic UK, maintaining control over all its dominions is simple, but Monarchist or Fascist Britain will have some complications. A Fascist Britain will have the dominions each move to declare independence starting 180 days after Britain turns Fascist, and must either secure them before they break away with Move to Secure the Dominions, or reconquer them with Appeal to Imperial Loyalists and/or Bring the Dominions Back Into the Fold. Move to Secure the Dominions prevents them from breaking away but leaves them at high autonomy; the Ally the Imperialist Uprising makes the uprising an Integrated Puppet or Reichskommissariat, meaning you can form the Federation immediately after the conference instead of waiting to reduce their autonomy to that level. Fascist and Monarchist Britain should be careful, since Bring the Dominions Back Into the Fold gives you claims on all core states of any dominion not in your faction at the time that focus completes, leading to -10 opinion with that dominion per claimed state; Canada in particular has 15 core states, giving a basically insurmountable -150 opinion and making it difficult to guarantee they accept the eventual Federation proposal. To get around this, Fascist Britain can use Move to Secure the Dominions, preventing them from breaking away in the first place. Monarchist Britain can use the event where if a dominion's imperialist uprising wins its civil war without Britain taking Ally the Imperialist Uprising it will ask to join Britain as a puppet anyway; note that this event does not fire for a Fascist uprising. A few divisions of heavy infantry volunteers are usually enough to make Canada's imperialist uprising win. Alternately, the Imperial Conference and Imperial Federation can be done where some of the dominions don't exist, provided their core states are all owned by the UK; a Monarchist or Fascist Britain can thus conquer Canada outright and puppet at least one of the others, and still form the Federation.

Once the dominions are secured, Britain can continue down the focus tree to the Imperial Conference. The first of the final two focuses in question is the Goal generic national unity.pngImperial Conference, which unlocks a series of decisions that allow the UK and the dominions to discuss matters concerning the whole British Empire. In order to successfully push through all of the proposals in the Imperial Conference, the player should save a minimum of 300 political power, and preferably 600-700 PP, in order to convince the dominions to accept the unification by improving relations (10 points times five dominions) and choosing to spend extra PP on each decision (up to additional PP per proposal). The British Raj must earlier have been satisfied by the Indian Autonomy focus in order to accept any proposals, regardless of diplomatic relations with the UK or extra PP spent.

When the conference starts, each dominion gets -100 opinion with the UK for the duration of the conference, effectively cancelling out the +50 from being in faction and +50 from being a puppet. Only one decision can be debated at a time. The player will have two months (60 days) to carry out all five decisions; each decision resolves quickly. The decisions, including Discuss Imperial Federation, can be taken in any order.

Conference Decisions

Decision Cost (PP) Effect if successful (per agreeing dominion)
Imperial Defense 50 +3% MIL and dockyard output (one year)
Dominion: +10% Mil and dockyard output (one year), +10 opinion of UK
Imperial Trade 50 UK: Trade relation with dominion +50
Dominion: +10 opinion of UK; change Trade Law to Free Trade (construction +15%, research +10%, factory/dockyard output +15%, resources to market 80%, civilian intel to others +40%, navy intel to others +20%)
Imperial Economy 50 +3% CIV, MIL, and dockyard construction speed (one year)
Dominion: +10% CIV, MIL, and dockyard construction speed (one year), +10 opinion of UK
Appeasement 50 UK: +3% war support
Dominion: +10% war support, +10 opinion of UK
Form Imperial Federation 100 Agree to form Federation; if all dominions agree, each gets -3 autonomy per day

When taken, each decision triggers an event where the UK can choose to spend different amounts of Political Power to convince the dominions to agree to the proposals. Which option you choose, combined with each dominion's opinion of the UK, determines how likely they are to agree; higher-PP options and higher opinion make the dominion more likely to agree. If a dominion agrees to the proposal, their opinion of the UK will increase, increasing the chances of them agreeing to the final decision; the more decisions that the dominions agree to, the more likely they are to accept the Imperial Federation. Benefits of the four 50-PP decisions accrue to each dominion that agrees, and stack for the UK. Odds of each dominion agreeing to the Federation decision are shown in the table below; the four 50-PP decisions are the same except that the last three rows are the same as the 75..79 row. The four 50-PP decisions can be accepted only by some dominions with reduced value to the UK. The Federation decision must be accepted either unanimously, or by all dominions except India, to have any effect. The odds of successful passage of the Federation proposal are thus the chance below for each of the five dominions multiplied together. The net probability of all five dominions agreeing lies between 3.1% in the worst case to 100% in the best.

Imperial Federation Decision Chance

Relations "Hope" +0 PP "Press" +25 PP "Extensive" +50 PP
< 0 50% 67% 75%
0..24 56% 71% 79%
25..49 61% 76% 82%
50..74 66% 80% 85%
75..79 71% 83% 88%
80..89 71% 83% 100%
90..99 71% 100% 100%
100 100% 100% 100%

If all dominions agree to form the Federation, an event will fire that causes all dominions to begin to lose autonomy at a rate of 3,0 per day. Despite that, even when combined with the Goal continuous restrict freedom.pngSuppress Subjects, it could still take around 4 years before the UK can reduce their autonomy to Integrated Puppet level. The process can be hastened by the usual means for reducing subject autonomy along with the Imperial Federation autonomy reduction. As each dominion reaches a lower autonomy level, additional PP must be spent to lower that dominion to the next level.

Once all of the dominions have been reduced to Integrated Puppet autonomy level, the player can take the final national focus Focus eng imperial federation.pngImperial Federation. Once that focus completes, the UK will annex all of its dominions, adopt a new name and flag, change its color to a deep red color and will gain cores on all of the dominion territory apart from the whole of India and Transvaal in South Africa. The UK will also inherit all military units and military leaders from its former dominions.

In addition to the core Federation, multiple possibilities for expanding the Empire exist:

First, if the Flag of United Kingdom United Kingdom defeats the Flag of United States United States in war through the national focus Focus eng unite the anglosphere.pngUnite Anglosphere and all American cores are owned and controlled by the UK, a decision called "Create Pan-North-American State" will appear and once chosen, all North American territories owned by the UK will be given to Flag of Canada Canada, which will have its name changed to the "Dominion of North America", and gain cores on all US cores, including Alaska along with a new flag. After that is done, once the Imperial Federation is formed, the UK will also gain cores on all US core territory, greatly increasing both population, resource, and industrial capacity and expanding the Imperial Federation to an even greater size. For best results, one should complete the national focus Goal generic national unity.pngImperial Conference and carry out all decisions in it first, then annex the United States and give all of their territory to Canada, and then finally complete the national focus Focus eng imperial federation.pngImperial Federation after all that.

Second, if the Flag of United Kingdom United Kingdom is Fascist, then after the Imperial Federation is formed with the United States included, this opens up the curious fact of the United Kingdom being the only country that is allowed to form the Flag of European Union European Union while fascist, allowing the Imperial Federation to be expanded to its greatest possible size. The Imperial Federation simply needs to conquer and annex the starting core states of the EU:s constituent countries (France, Germany, Italy, and the Low countries) to unlock the decision to integrate them. If then formed, this Imperial "Super" Federation (comprising the British Empire, the United States and the European Union territories) will have a combined core population of nearly half a billion people (or nearly 500 million people, around the same level as the core population of Flag of India India or Flag of China China!).

Finally, if your dominions form nations and get new core states, you can get cores on them as the Imperial Federation. There are two dominions capable of doing so: Flag of New Zealand New Zealand can form Flag of Polynesia Polynesia and Flag of South Africa South Africa can form Flag of Mutapa Mutapa. (Note that the Imperial Federation can not get core on Flag of British Malaya British Malaya or Flag of Greater Indonesian Confederacy Greater Indonesian Confederacy.) However, Flag of New Zealand New Zealand needs independence or dominion autonomy level, and Flag of South Africa South Africa ​needs to be fully independent for them to form these nations Making this process difficult in singleplayer without console commands. Also, Polynesia requires Hawaii to be formed, this means that you will need some effort to create both the pan-American state (needed for cores on the USA) and Polynesia.

The Flag of Imperial Federation Imperial Federation will thus have been founded, ensuring that the British Empire shall indeed endure the test of time and last a thousand years like Winston Churchill once said. Rule Britannia!!

Note 1: ENG will not receive cores from the British Raj or British Malaya to illustrate cultural differences (also done to counteract the OPness of gaining full access to all Indian manpower, which even British Raj/India doesn’t get).

Note 2: When playing as monarchist UK with non-historical AI, there is a chance that the UK will not receive cores on South Africa even after a successful Imperial Conference. As of patch 1.10.3, the UK being granted South African cores requires that South Africa has completed the "Police Windhoek" national focus. If South Africa's "Support the Policy of Appeasement" focus isn't completed before the Dominions break with the Crown in 1936, the Police Windhoek focus will be blocked, making it impossible for the UK to receive South African cores via the Imperial Federation. (If historical AI is enabled, selects Support the Policy of Appeasement and Police Windhoek before the Dominions break away, avoiding this issue.)

Kingdom of Poland-Romania[edit | edit source]

The Flag of Kingdom of Poland-Romania Kingdom of Poland-Romania is another monarchic union that can be established, in this case between Flag of Poland Poland and Flag of Romania Romania.

Historically, the Kingdom of Poland existed in various iterations from as early as 1025 AD until its demise in 1795. The kingdom was restored in a way as the semi-autonomous polity of Congress Poland, existing from 1815 to 1867, with an attempted real restoration during the November Uprisings of 1830-1831 and the January Uprising of 1864. After this, Poland's autonomy was severely curtailed and the Kingdom of Poland thereafter was mostly a formality, existing only on paper. After the collapse of the Russian Empire in 1917, the Kingdom of Poland was re-established by the German Empire and a Regency Council was inaugurated with the task of electing a king to the vacant throne. This ultimately naver came to pass, as Germany was defeated by the Entente and signed an armistice on the 11th November 1918. The Regency Council of the newly formed Kingdom of Poland failed to crown a King before Marshal Józef Piłsudski declared the Flag of Poland Second Polish Republic, which still exists in 1936.

However, polish monarchism may not be completely dead yet, and Poland can opt to fulfill the 5th of November Act, a promise made by the Central Powers to release a Kingdom of Poland from the occupied territories of the Russian Empire. Once the Regency Council has been assembled anew, three claimants to the thronw may be chosen from; The Hohenzollern (Michael II of Romania), The Commonwealth Claimant (Friedrich Christian of the House of Wettin), and the Cossack-King (Pavel Bermondt-Avalov, a warlord, a cossack, and a Georgian Prince).

Out of these options, the Commonwealth Claimant (Friedrich Chrstian of Wettin) will allow Poland to seek a restoration of the Flag of Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, while the Hohenzollern (Michael II of Romania) will open up the path towards forming the Flag of Kingdom of Poland-Romania Kingdom of Poland-Romania. Poland and Romania enjoyed close relations in the timeframe leading up to World War II, and with the throne of Poland vacant, Poland can elevate these relations to new heights by electing a Romanian king. From here, the two nations can be united into one kingdom under the right circumstances; either by Polish pressure of if Romania completes the national focus "King Michael's Coup". With Poland and Romania united into one kingdom, Poland-Romania may either align itself with the Allies or appoint a royal dictatorship and seek to expand further by conquering Flag of Slovakia Slovakia and Flag of Kingdom of Hungary Hungary by restoring the union of Poland-Hungary. Once fully realised, the Flag of Kingdom of Poland-Romania Kingdom of Poland-Romania will form a powerfull wall between the Axis and Comintern, taking a similar role as the late Flag of Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and Flag of Austria-Hungary Austro-Hungarian Empire as a monarchic union state that acts as the guardian of stability in the region.

This allows the Nordic League to be formed even after the Soviet Union annexes these states in the white peace after the Winter War. If the Nordic League is formed by Flag of Finland Finland, however, those states will already be cores, meaning that a Finnish-formed Nordic League will have slightly more manpower and industry than usual. This decision will also become available to Flag of Estonia Estonia if they complete the national focus Estonia is Scandinavian, in their national focus tree.

Ostland[edit | edit source]

Not to be confused with Reichskommissariat Ostland, a puppet state formable by Germany.

Available as part of Flag of Latvia Latvia's fascismfascist path, Flag of Ostland Ostland is an oddball case when it comes to formable nations, as it is an artifical state invented by Germany and can be established by Latvia for personal benefit and profit.

In order to form Flag of Ostland Ostland, Latvia must take the national focus Latvia for Latvians to start progressing down their fascist path. From here, they can court the fascist Thunder Cross movement and its leader, Gustavs Celmiņš. This is a delicate balancing act, however, as if the Thunder Cross movement grows too powerful too fast, they will attempt to overthrow the government, which ill cause the whole entire scheme to collapse in on itself and a civil war to erupt. Once Gustavs Celmiņš and the Thunder Cross are in power, peacefully or not, they can opt to do smething very strange; namely, align themselves with Flag of German Reich Germany and adopt the mantle of Reichskommissariat Ostland and serve their german masters by occupying the Baltics, Belarus and perhaps more beyond that. This is rather strange, as it essentially involves Latvia taking advantage of german designs and ambitions for the area to form a nation of their own as a reward for loyalty; effectively establishing Gustavs Celmiņš and the Thunder Cross as the Quislings of Eastern Europe. That being, said, Latvia does get to remain independent and not become a puppet of Germany, which opens up the possibility of establishing puppet states of your own to expand Ostland's realm further and later breaking free from Germany and becoming fully sovereign (similar to Flag of Vichy France Vichy France), allowing Ostland to evolve from a mere reichskommissariat and artifical invention to an undisputed reality and legitimate state in its own right.

The Flag of Ottoman Empire Ottoman Sultanate is a formable nation that represents the Turkish nation that was formed in 1299 and dominated the Middle East and Arabia between the 14th and 20th centuries in which it was most commonly known as the Flag of Ottoman Empire Ottoman Empire. It entered into a period of stagnation and decline from the mid-1700s onwards and finally collapsed because of their involvement in the First World War in 1918, being officially dissolved in 1922-1923 with Flag of Turkey Turkey being the successor state.

Formation

The Flag of Ottoman Empire Ottoman Empire can be formed by Flag of Turkey Turkey.

Polynesia[edit | edit source]

Map of required states for the United Kingdom of Polynesia. Stripes indicate states that are not required to form but will get cores.

Polynesia is a country that can be formed by any one of the Pacific island nations that are of Austronesian descent, allowing the peoples of the Pacific Ocean to be united under one power. In 1936, the required states are owned by Flag of New Zealand New Zealand, The Flag of United States United States, Flag of Japan Japan and Flag of France France. Somewhat uniquely, Polynesia can be formed if the forming nation is a puppet (dominion-level), meaning that it is possible for a nation to puppet one of the eligible nations and let it form Polynesia by giving it the requisite territories.

Out of all the eligible nations, Flag of New Zealand New Zealand has by far the best hopes for forming Polynesia, due to it having the highest population and a unique national focus tree (if playing with the Together For Victory DLC).

Roman Empire[edit | edit source]

Map of required states for the Roman Empire. Stripes indicate states that are not required to form but will get cores. Checkerboard pattern indicate states that are required but will not get cores.

Representing Fascist Flag of Italy Italy's greatest ambition and perhaps the mightiest empire Europe has ever known, the Flag of Roman Empire Roman Empire came into existence as part of a long process starting in 509 BC when the Roman Kingdom was replaced by the Roman Republic which would then proceed to conquer all of Italy, France, Greece, Iberia, the Low Countries as well as parts of Anatolia, and North Africa until 27 BC when the Roman Republic became the Roman Empire. After that, the Roman Empire went on to conquer all of England and Wales, Egypt, all of the Balkans, the rest of Anatolia, all of the Levant, a large chunk of Mesopotamia as well as pushing the Roman borders further and further into continental Central and Eastern Europe. The Roman Empire existed until 395 AD, when it was divided into the Eastern- and Western Roman Empire. The Western Roman Empire collapsed in 476 AD while the Eastern Roman Empire (Also known as Flag of Byzantine Empire Byzantium, which can be formed by Flag of Greece Greece) would go on to persist until its demise in 1453. The last remnants of the Byzantine Empire (and by extension the Roman Empire) were wiped out in 1461-1475.

The idea of an Empire spanning the Mediterranean has in recent years been revived in the popular mind. Now, our military campaigns have exceeded the wildest dreams of even our most ardent supporters, and we find ourselves on the cusp of being able to realize these ambitions. Roma invicta!

The states in the British Isles are not required, but will become cores on formation. The Yugoslavian states of Herzegovina (804), Kosovo (802) and Southern Serbia (803) as well as the French state of Pyrénées-Atlantique (806) are not required nor will they get cores.

Once the decision "Realize Roman Ambitions" is enacted and the Roman Empire formed, Flag of Italy Italy will change its name to "Imperium Romanum", change its color to a scarlet red and adopt a Roman imperial flag. Along with that, all the territories listed above will become Italian (Roman) cores. If Benito Mussolini is still in power when the New Roman Empire is formed, he will change his name to "Augustus Mussolini" and his portrait will change to a version of him wearing a golden laurel wreath.

Should the Flag of Soviet Union Soviet Union be dismantled for whatever reason, then Flag of Tannu Tuva Tannu Tuva or one of the releasable successor states in Siberia can decide to pick up the pieces of the fallen union and save what still can be saved by forming a united Flag of Siberia Siberia to prevent the lands east of the Ural Mountains from falling under foreign influence. In order to form Siberia, a large portion of the Flag of Soviet Union Soviet Union east of the Ural Mountains must be controlled. After forming Siberia, it is possible to expand Siberia to include the territory of the 24px Far Eastern Republic, westward to the Ural Mountains, and the areas inhabited by the Ainu people of the northern islands of Flag of Japan Japan.

Execute decision.pngForm a Siberian State

Siberia has never had a united identity, neither culturally, ethnically or politically, besides nowadays Russian. However, thanks to having been brought into the same realm by the hands of the Russians, the Siberian people have never been more united. If a state were to unite Siberia and push out the Russian Imperialists, many people would surely accept unification under this new state, and many are asking for it to become a reality.

Third Bulgarian Empire[edit | edit source]

The Flag of Third Bulgarian Empire Third Bulgarian Empire is the greater state that Flag of Bulgaria Bulgaria tried to form during WWI and WWII. Historically, it represents a restoration of the Bulgarian Empire, which existed in 681-1018 and 1185-1396/1422. These two "Bulgarian Empires" are usually not treated as separate entities but rather as the one and same state restored after a period of foreign rule, so that technically means that the Third Bulgarian Empire is indeed a restoration of the Bulgarian Empire of old.

Third Rome[edit | edit source]

This formable nation is available as part of the monarchist restoration path for the Flag of Soviet Union Soviet Union, which is a rather difficult and complicated affair.

In order to form Flag of Third Rome Third Rome, the player must first restore the 24px Russian Empire. The journey to that begins by completing the national focus Beaten, but not Defeated. From here, the player must begin organising, arming and equipping the Russian White Exiles while undermining the Soviet Union from within, with the intent of instigating a Second Russian Civil War to overthrow the communist bolsheviks for good. This is the hardest path in the Soviet Union's focus tree, harder than any other branch, as the Soviet Union will have a massive military and industrial advantage over the Whites. The Whites must make intelligent use of their limited resources, subversive activities as well as whatever foreign aid they can acquire, and can even attempt to invite Flag of Japan Japan to join the Soviet Civil War directly in exchange for the elimination of a rival power to their northwest, major territorial gains on the Pacific coast, and even the installation of a subject regime in the power vacuum their rival’s collapse would create.

If, against all odds, the Russian White Exiles emerge victorious, the 24px Russian Empire that fell in 1917 will be restored and a new Tsar will be crowned in Moscow.

Regardless of whether the player chooses the Monarchist branch (Romanov Reconstruction) or the Fascist branch (Dismantle the Zemsky Sobor) of the Russian Empire's national focus tree, further down the tree lies a national focus named Rightful Heir to the Empire, which references to the notion of Moscow and, by extension, Russia, being seen as the third incarnation of the Roman Empire (With the Flag of Roman Empire Roman Empire being the first and Flag of Byzantium Byzantium being the second, respectively) and gives claims on all of the three Romes (Rome in Flag of Italy Italy, Istanbul/Constantinople in Flag of Turkey Turkey and Jerusalem controlled by the Flag of United Kingdom United Kingdom).

By emphasizing the role of the church in the new nation, the church and state can be brought closer and closer to each other, culminating in the elevation of Metropolitan Meletius of Harbin and Manchuria to Arch-Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia and Tsar of Russia as well, effectively turning Russia into a theocracy. In line with its stated lineage to the Roman Empire, the name "Russia" will be dropped from use altogether and the nation will simply be renamed as literally Flag of Third Rome Third Rome, with a new flag and an imperial purple color to boot.

Transcaucasia[edit | edit source]

Map of required states (in orange) for Flag of Transcaucasia Transcaucasia for the No Step BackNo Step Back DLC. The green, blue, and pink represent Reunite the Azeri Disaspora, Integrate the Northern Caucasus, and Claims in Anatolia decisions respectively. Yellow, red, and gold represent the Restore the Kalmyk Khanate, Restore the Crimean Khanate, and Subjugate the Anatolian Kurds decisions, respectively. Stripes indicate states that are not required to set up the puppet but will get cores and be transferred if controlled.

Should the Flag of Soviet Union Soviet Union be dismantled for whatever reason, then one of the releasable successor states in the South Caucasus can decide to pick up the pieces of the fallen union and save what still can be saved by forming a united Flag of Transcaucasia Transcaucasia to prevent the lands north of the Caucasus from falling under foreign influence. The nation takes its name from the briefly-existing Mountainous Republic of the Northern Caucasus. In order to form North Caucasia, most of the area between the Don River and Caucassus in the Flag of Soviet Union Soviet Union must be controlled. After formation, Transcaucasia can be expanded to encompass all Azeris and recent-historical Armenian territories, as well as expanding into Ciscaucasia. Additionally a puppet Kurdistan can be formed. Non-Aligned or Fascist Transcaucasia can additionally set up puppet Kalmyk and Crimean Khanates.

The Transcaucasian Republic which was recently dissolved after the 1936 Soviet Constitution, is still an idea etched into people's minds. If a country were to manage to unite these territories, there is a chance that the Federation of States may be reestablished, and that Transcaucasia may stand united and strong once again.
