If the year is between 1550 and 1650 and the Netherlands does not exist, nations that control parts of the low countries and do not have Dutch or Flemish as their primary culture will receive events causing revolts and if successful, eventually lead to the formation of the Netherlands. The newly-independent Netherlands will then receive a full navy and army and claims over the low countries as well as opportunities to annex other Dutch minors through events.

Let us concentrate all our expertise in land reclamation to improve the region and the city of Amsterdam so that we may create a northern port city worthy to rival the old urban centres of the South.
