Cyprus is owned by The Ottoman Empire in the beginning of the game

Cyprus is an island north of Egypt Egypt releaseable from the Ottoman Empire Ottoman Empire . It is so small that even Greece Greece seems like a superpower. Greece has cores on Cyprus so a Greek invasion is a game long threat until Cyprus manage to become strong enough to discourage Greece. Unable to field even a single unit once released, it would take a skilled player, good allies, and a lot of luck to claim any land for this island nation.

The only RGO on the island is Fruit.png, which can be used for a Resource wine.pngwinery, but Coal.pngcoal for Resource glass.pngglass is lacking.

It does however have one thing going for it. It has both Turkish and Greek as an accepted culture, which makes it a bit easier to hold newly conquered land.
