* MagikarpPower: Germany starts out divided into [[UsefulNotes/HolyRomanEmpire dozens and dozens of mostly one province little countries]]. Conquer the right ones and you can gain the option to form Germany which can quickly become one of the most powerful countries in the game. Do this early in the game before Spain, France, Russia, and Great Britain have formed and you easily have THE most powerful country in the game.
** The Timurids (once Timur himself dies) are prone to rebellions and other woes even by horde standards. Sucessfully reform the government into a proper kingdom, however (or better yet, form the Mughal Empire), and you've got a powerful nation with mountainous terrain that can be a nightmare to invade, access to multiple high-value trade zones,''and'' lots of potential for colonization, with Africa and some Pacific islands close by.

** [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]] with Fetishist nations in ''EU IV.'' Through contact with other religion groups (and Fetishists in other regions of Africa), the stable of Cults they can choose from gradually expands; thus, the larger the nation, the more flexible its religion bonus. Unfortunately, Hindu and Tengri mechanics are very similar, but much more powerful, which combined with Fetishism's lackluster missionary strength means that it can't really compare even with every Cult unlocked.

*** The ''Rights of Man'' DLC [[SubvertedTrope bucks the trend]]. If your ruler has Scholar trait, you'll instead get an extra option called "Fascinating!" which gives you 20 Administrative point instead.

** Quite a few events give you a choice between a costly-yet-benevolent option and a brutal-yet-pragmatic one. Your subjects may see a certain matter as a threat to their very way of life and livelihood; [[ButForMeItWasTuesday you will see it as a choice between another annoying yet easily-defeated revolt and a sacrifice of carefully-stewarded Admin Points]].
