The Western European regions are part of the Western Europe super-region. Most of the major nations in these regions are historical explorers and colonizers. These nations are the ones primarily responsible for the increasing flow of wealth into the continent from the newly discovered lands. As such, they have an inclination to pick idea groups suited for this role. Even so, nations which are located near the HRE can become entangled instead in the continental wars and the coming religious wars.

The break-down of the Western European regions are as follows:

Government types

  • Government monarchy.png Feudal Monarchy is the dominant government type (notable exceptions are the English Monarchy and the Iqta in Flag of Granada Granada).
  • There are a couple of Government theocracy.png Theocracy governments and a single Government republic.png Republic in the middle area.

Religions

  • Catholicism Catholic is the dominant religion in these parts at the 1444 start.
  • A Sunni Islam Sunni holdout is located at the southern part of the area.
  • As Catholic reform desire.png reform desire reaches its peak in the Christian world, the Protestantism Protestant and Reformed.png Reformed denominations will start to spread across the continent.

Technology groups

  • Almost all nations in these parts belong to the Western technology group Western technology group (with the exception of Granada which is Muslim technology group Muslim).

Culture groups

  • British and Celtic in the northern part.
  • French and Germanic in the central and northeastern parts respectively.
  • Iberian in the southwestern part.

Formable / Reformable nations[edit]

Some of these nations don't exist at the 1444 campaign start. They can appear if another nation chooses to form them.

Revolter nations[edit]

These nations don't exist and also lack cores at the 1444 campaign start. They can still appear if Separatist rebels.png Separatist rebels manage to take control of their cultural provinces.

Notes: The data in the tables derive from first availability; meaning, if a nation is picked in other time points it may have a different government, religion, capital and in some cases even other national ideas. To view the default (game-file) values of a nation see Country descriptions list. The order of availability is: [1] 1444 start, [2] 1444 releasable nations, [3] first sighting in later dates. Also worth noting, [4] If a specific region isn't mentioned that's due to it not being any nation's home region (containing a nation's capital), [5] some names may seem different due to localisation being turned off (for consistency reasons).
