Chimu are a likely doomed nation in South America, they are surrounded by the Inca who have more provinces, manpower and ducats. Despite this the aim of Chimu is to replace the Inca and it can be done.
Replacing the Inca
War will happen, it may even start on the first day of the Grand Campaign. The only saving grace is the lack of forts in many provinces. Build armies, hire mercenaries and avoid the large stack coming from Inca. Take as many provinces as possible, try to ensure that the Incan army doesn't catch your stacks. This takes both luck and patience but with perseverance it is possible to get a favourable peace deal. A second war will be needed to make the Inca your vassal, at this point sell back less valuable provinces and concentrate on technology. Forts are a must and then its the long wait until Europeans arrive.
