Present Day Edit

The Revival of Yugoslavia Edit

For reviving Yugoslavia, you will want to declare war on Kosovo Kosovo, since you have a core there. You will want to get relations up with Russia and eventually, an alliance. This will prevent almost everyone from declaring war on you. Historical alliances besides Russia would be Greece and Romania. But you can also ally Italy, Austria or Turkey. Build up your economy and military and try to be as secular as you can regarding cultures and religions, as you will want to represent the union of all South Slavs. Try to peacefully vassalize the following: Montenegro Montenegro, Macedonia Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia Croatia and Slovenia Slovenia. The ones you may and probably will have to declare war on would be Croatia and Bosnia. Slovenia is usually a wild card. If war breaks out then you're better off just annexing them, while Macedonia and Montenegro will almost always be friends with you and you won't have too much trouble vassalizing them. After acquiring all of that territory, you will want to form Yugoslavia. To keep historical, keep your religion secular and promote (accept) all cultures within the Balkan region. Remain very neutral and diplomatic, usually developing your provinces, making your trade better, and keeping high relations with all great powers. You may want to break the ice and change your government to a Socialist Republic. Always be best friends with the Russia Russians and you won't have anyone bothering you (even if you don't keep good relations with other powers). Now you have Yugoslavia in it's prime, and if you are interested in more expansion, a diplomatic vassalization of Albania Albania and Bulgaria Bulgaria would be your first choice. After which you will want to annex Bulgaria. Keep trying to vassalize them and if you're still not having any luck, declare war. Promote (Accept) their cultures and you are done realistically. If you really want more, then the only option you have left if you wish to keep it historical as mostly as you can, then do the same with Greece Greece to complete you Balkan Domination. Promote (Accept) them even though they are not Slavs, there is a certain friendship between South Slavs and Greeks (especially Serbs).
