Argentina in 1836

Argentina is a large but sparsely populated civilized nation in the southern end of South America. It is placed among Brazil Brazil and Chile Chile. It has a low pop density on all of its provinces meaning low production. The top export will be cattle and timber.

It is possible that Argentina can become an immigrant magnet using the right reforms and budgets, but it starts out as a presidential dictatorship, which is not good for immigration. It has a core on the United Kingdom United Kingdom-owned Falkland Islands as well as Bolivia Bolivia's Jujuy region. The former will likely be impossible to conquer, the latter a ripe target to aim for.

Argentina has the unique decision Law 1420, which gives a bonus to research.

Starting up

A priority should be researching techs that improve production. The RGO bonuses are crucial to Argentinas frankly lackluster budget. One has casus belli on Bolivia for two provinces and Argentina starts with a decent army. It is recommended to attack relatively early.

It is recommended to encourage clergymen to improve the relatively bad literacy, that South American nations typically have.

Due to Argentinas low population it is recommended to make as many reforms as possible in order to attrack as many immigrants as possible.

Targets of Conquest

Uruguay Uruguay and Paraguay Paraguay share the same culture group though it does have some Brazilians, so they might be worth annexing. Both Uruguay and Paraguay do however have a very small population and one might decide that they are not worth the 22 infamy.

There are a lot of countries in South America that have cores on one another, so it is possible to look out for continental wars and strike when a country is weakened and occupied. Even Brazil is possible to take on if the timing is on point.

Bolivia is usually an easy target for conquest, with no alliances and meager military. They are often the target of other countries too which might make it even easier.

Chile has a decent population (for a South American Standard) and have valuable iron resources. They do however have a decent army and does usually ally itself with Brazil. It might be a difficult target, but it is sure a nice addition.

One can consider using national focus to create a crisis for Falkland Islands, but it might not be worth risking a war with the Juggernaut Great Britain for such a small island
