The Middle East regions are the combined regions of the Near East super-region and the Persia super-region. These regions serve as a the area of conflict between 4 main powers vying for supremacy. Two of those powers include the Flag of Ottomans Ottomans and the Flag of Mamluks Mamluks fighting for control in the Near East super-region. At the beginning the Ottomans tend to be busy with the European front and consolidating the minor nations at its home region thus the balance of power between them and the Mamluks is preserved. As the time progress and the European theater quiets down the war between the two begins. In a one-on-one match the victor will most of the time be the Ottomans (unless the Mamluks are lucky or played by a skilled player). Any regional Coptic.png Coptic and Orthodoxy Orthodox nations will strive to see either of the above two fall and crumble to gain control of their provinces with religious importance.

The other two forces consist of the Flag of Timurids Timurids and Flag of Persia Persia competing for power in the Persia super-region. At the start only the Timurids are present, but very soon after Separatist rebels.png Persian separatists rise up and claim a good part of the provinces. The early decades are full of fights between the two although after the Timurids reform into the Flag of Mughals Mughals they tend to turn more of their attention towards the Indian super-region and leave the Persian super-region region mostly to Persia and any surviving minors.

After a clear winner appears in each of the respective areas they'll turn on each other. Although the balance of power may seem to remain stable for years to come the technological advantage of the Ottomans tips the scale in their favor in the long run. Even so, some peace and corporation can occur in this area when and if a common threat - in the form of Flag of Russia Russia - may arrive suddenly from the north.

The break-down of the Middle East regions is as follows:

Government types

  • Government monarchy.png Monarchy is the dominant government form in these parts (appearing mainly as Despotic Monarchy and Iqta).
  • A pocket of Government steppe horde.png Steppe Nomads governments are located in the central part.
  • A few Government tribal.png Tribal government forms appear at the northern, southern and eastern edges of these parts.
  • A lone Government theocracy.png Monastic Order is present at the most northwestern part.

Religions

  • Sunni Islam Sunni is the most spread in these parts.
  • Shiite Islam Shia is more commonplace around the central part.
  • Orthodoxy Orthodox in the most northern part.
  • Small pockets of Coptic.png Coptic, Catholicism Catholic and Ibadi Islam Ibadi appear at the northern, northwestern and southern edges of these parts.

Technology groups

  • Anatolian technology group Anatolian is spread in the northwestern part (along with tiny pocket of Western technology group Western).
  • Eastern technology group Eastern is spread in the northern part.
  • Nomadic technology group Nomadic is located in the central part.
  • Muslim technology group Muslim is present in the rest of these parts.

Culture groups

  • Byzantine and French in the northwestern part.
  • Caucasian in the northern part.
  • Iranian in the central and eastern parts.
  • Levantine in the western and southern parts.

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.
