Strategy Edit

Present DayEdit

Although the days of the Holy Roman Empire Holy Roman Empire are long and gone, you are in the European Union European Union instead! This means that your old Austrian ideas that helped you in the HRE will help you once again in the EU! The strategy remains similar to a regular Austrian strategy, and that is: focus on diplomat means for expanding the country (this doesn't you mean you can't expand aggressively, of course!) By doing this you can get closer and closer to forming a centralized European nation state, far more power than the old HRE would have ever been!
