Form Russian Nation is a country decision.

This decision can be found in RussianNation.txt. The unification of Russia works differently in different versions of the game. In EU3 and Napoleon's Ambition, it was implemented as country event that, when the preconditions were met, could be accepted or declined, but only once. In Nomine has changed this unification to a decision. The article below lists the requirements and effects for each version separately.


Through conquest and diplomacy Russia has managed to transform from a mere settlement into a dominant principality. After several eastern expeditions the Mongol hordes have finally been subdued and a centralised Russian state, ruled under the suzerainty of the Tsar, is emerging. Influences from Western Europe are helping us modernise and reform our nation and Western style of education is being adopted.
