I don't merely play with my nation first, I ONLY play with my nation. And if some game doesn't include my country, I don't even play it. Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori.

I would but my country is too small to have it's own faction, the same with the countries of both my parents. So the closest I can get is playing as their major neighbors who probably conquered my ancestral nations at some points in history.

australian so I rarely get to. The men of war WW1 game had an australian campaign disguised as a britbong campaign which was kind of cool, dude on our $100 note was in it giving the orders. Heritage is scottish (with smaller amounts of english, french and german thrown in), I main scotland quite a bit in games that have them present.

Well, not counting Paradox games like Victoria o Hearts of Iron where you can definitely play with all three you've mentioned, you also have the ANZAC in Wargame: Red Dragon. You can even play with them in one of the campaigns, defending Hong Kong from the chinese onslaught alongside the UK and Canada.

I used to do it a lot, but you quickly grow tired of doing the same thing over and over again. There isn't many ways to play Russia, you see. Literally in any strategy no matter the time period, you begin the game, eat neighboring minors, fight and destroy whoever is dominating Europe at the time, and the game's over since later on it'll just be boring map painting.

I used to growing up, but I don't anymore because I feel alienated from the current zeitgeist of my nation. I've seen a lot of changes in my time and it feels harder and harder to know my neighbors and townsfolk, especially when many are no longer natives and have radically different beliefs. My nation is no longer a nation I can claim is my own.

Not really, but I'm from the UK and that's often quite a boring, beginners start in many games. Depending on the date you can either hide behind the seas or you're already about to launch into full RULE BRITANNIA mode.

However, the UK is properly fun and interesting in HoI3 ("fun" on the HoI3 scale, mind you), because you've got a million fires to put out all over the place and they escalate as the game roles on. That's opposed to something like the USSR who, post Finland, have a whirlwind of piss thrown on them for two years before the Germans start losing properly and it becomes mind numbing (and that's "mind numbing" on the HoI3 scale so be careful).

I am from Sri Lanka and I spent countless hours learning how to conquer the indian subcontinent while running my own colonial empire. It always made for fun playthroughs. Other times I play Netherlands or Portugal whom each played a significant role in influencing this country for a long term good. Though these days I usually play Italian minors or Byz. Something about small starts that later aim to be economic powerhouses is what Ive grown to like after playing Kandy. My only dissapointment is that Ceylon gets little missions and content despite its violent and interesting past whether it was the Chola or the British.
