Sub-Saharan Africa

From Europa Universalis 4 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Sub-Saharan Africa is in 1444 mostly uncolonized, but it also contains several tribal states. Few of these states have unique national ideas, instead sharing the generic national ideas. All of the nations in the western half of Sub-Saharan Africa use the Sub-Saharan technology group, one of the worst in the game. But the nations on the eastern side use either the Indian or Muslim technology group which are slightly better.

Notable countries[edit]

Notable countries have unique national ideas and/or missions, decisions and events that differentiate them from other more generic countries:
