This game is fantastic. I remember in my first play through of the vanilla game in the middle of a massive world war between just myself (Germany) and the UK I noticed the People's Republic of the United States with an independent Manhattan Commune. In my next game with the A House Divided and Heart of Darkness DLC I played as Germany again but this time Russia released Poland as a sovereign nation become a democracy and lost world power status. At the same time French rebels would make it a democracy, then they would revolt to make it a communist government and then revolt again for the democracy all the while losing its industry and military and falling to 16th most powerful nation. As I dissected the Austrian Empire to be only the Danubian Federation (A smaller nation missing most of its eastern territories) to be the 20th ranked country. Then after taking the resource rich Manchuria and Mongolia from the Chinese I was involved in a great war caused by the crisis system (allows smaller nations to get great powers to back their claims on other countries). Spain and the Ottoman Empire, who had colonized almost all of Africa save South Africa backed me up against the French, UK, the Danubian Federation and Italy during which I took most of India from the British and made them give the rest of it to their Indian Satellite nation Hyderabad.
You can completely change history in a warped manner, Have the Ottoman's regain their former glory, help Spain reconquer their former colonies, form Scandanavia and take Finland back from Russia, westernize as Panjab and take India from the British. Maybe you want to westernize as China and have your legions of soldiers annex Russia, Japan invade Germany. Building the Panama canal as Japan and doing all the things listed above are possible in Victoria 2 as if you can figure the complexity of the economy and population that pushes the game to more interesting heights each time you play.
