Bhopal is one of the Indian princily states. It lies in the north-west of India. It is a puppet of United Kingdom and therefore it cannot engage in war on its own. That makes it hard to westernize as conquest is usually the most effective way to westernize. If the country is controlled by the AI, it can be annexed by the event The Doctrine of Lapse. There is not anything the country can do to prevent it, but it cannot happen to the player.
Bhopal holds cores on a single province which UK controls at the start of the game: Hoshangabad. If Bhopal actually manages to achieve full independence, they might retake them either by crisis or conquest.
