A view of Bukkhara and the surrounding nations in 1836

Bukkhara is an Uncivilized, Landlocked Nation located in Central Asia, south of Russia Russia. It borders Khiva to the west, Kokand to the east and north and Afghanistan in the south.

It is one of the Turkic Khanates, along with Khiva Khiva and Kokand Kokand.

It will have to civilize before being able to research new technologies. Bukkhara's literacy is at extremely low 2%. On top of that, it has not completed any reforms.

It starts outside of any sphere of influence and does not have any alliances. It is however normal, that Khiva and/or Kokand will offer an alliance. Bukkhara starts with a rather good relation to Khiva (60) and with positive relations (between 10 and 35) to Kokand Kokand.

Bukkhara starts with 9 brigades out of 9 possible brigades in 3 armies:
