Every Formable Nation in Victoria 3 and their requirements

Find all the countries that you can make.

Nothing is more satisfying than starting as a weak country and forming some incredible kingdom or empire. Most Victoria 3 players will strive to do this with most minor countries or with some of the greater powers. However, most formable nations in Victoria 3 require the player to have a specific culture to create. Once you have that culture, you can easily find the regional requirements needed to make that country in the Cultures tab. So, here are all the formable nations in Victoria 3 for you to find and experiment with.
