    I am voting for the obvious.

    I'm pretty sure Draco will do the same.

    Voted Friesland. It would be something different from the other EU3 LPs that have been done.

    Joining Wallachia bandwagon. Good LARP makes a good LP. Plus, you're going to have to REMOVE KEBAB FROM PREMISES once more (I bet they'll DoW you), and this never gets old.

    I'm torn between Maya and Tyrone. Still I think Maya would be a foregone conclusion of LOL EUROPEANS unless MA actually improved native odds against the conquistators and their lust for mayagold. Tyrone on the other hand looks like FUN between repelling the filthy five o'clockers, colonizing the 'muricas, repelling the other imperialist assholes (including the five o'clocker bastards) and enslaving the natives. Not to mention having to focus on naval combat.

    Out of the options not mentioned though I would recommend picking a Japanese state/clan. I remember having quite a blast with Japan after I united it with Shimazu (IIRC) in MMU. After the initial Sengoku nonsense which itself is quite FUN/rage inducing due to the mechanics involved you get to do imperialism Nippon style. Lots of Naval combat with the ragheads of Indonesia (occasionally worst turk sends their fleets to help), colonizing the Australias, getting the filthy Chinese off your Taiwan (which you colonized but they like invading). Hell my Japan converted to protestantism and waged war on the papists if they got near :M

    Difficulty of the unification varies by the clan you pick, with Shimazu being one of the harder ones as the ones on the main island (Honshu) have an easier time usurping the title of Shogun, you need to control a few key central provinces to be able to do that. Which the AI will always try to do (it changes their nation to japan and gives them cores on all your shit, fun times). Although there are ones worse off which start with one province and further away from Honshu. Also popamole pirate spawns limit naval movement which makes invading the main island harder until you manage to build a fleet. Not sure what they changed in MA regarding the Sengoku mechanics though.

    Either way I vote Tyrone. Those shamrocks will help you get all the potato and gold from the 'muricas.

    Bremen. The religious wars could lead to some really nice narratives.

    Wallachia sounds very promising but ended up voting for Maya because, hey, conquistadores.

    Would've preferred Aztec, as they're much broer bros, but Mayans will have to do.

    To be honest, I already did a Greattst Countrey LP in almost the same region, but this time I would spice it up with lulzy LARP and focus expansion elsewhere. Of course, I'm not grotsnik, but I'd give it a try.

    As for the Mayans, were they Melonheads, Sapiens or Neanderthals?

    :M

    Sapiens, as we all know Cleveology clearly states that Aryan Nordic Ubermensch=Neanderthal and Melonheads evolved into Khazarian Jews. If they were Neanderthals clearly they would have repelled the few sapiens that invaded their continent. Melonheads would manipulate the conquistadors into not looting the mayagold. Thus it is clear that they were what Cleveology scientifically calls "spear-chucking assmonkeys".

    Tyrone seems interesting, would love to see them become a colonial power to rival England.
