A view of Southern Africa with Natalia under Zulu control

Natalia is a releasable nation in southern Africa, which consist of a single state. The Natalia Republic was one of the Boer states established in 1838 and was annexed by Britain in 1843. The area is now a part of modern South Africa South Africa.

It consists only of the province Durban which is initially owned by Zulu Zulu. Even Zulu seems powerful when playing as Natalia and in direct conflict with any nation, let alone Zulu, the Natalian armies won't stand a chance. Natalia starts off with no available brigades and low literacy, it also lacks its accepted cultures (Boer) so it is extremely unlikely that there will be more than one national focus point available throughout the entire game.

Evading a war with Zulu is the number 1 priority for Natalia and the second is evading rebels. Keeping relations up with your neighbors, Britain and Zulu, is imperative for the survival of Natalia. If you manage to complete these objectives, it is nigh on impossible to accomplish anything else with Natalia's terrible position.

The Zulu decision Attack The Laagers will kill a large portion of Boer POPs in Durban, which will hurt a potential independent Natalia greatly.


Getting an alliance with Britain is very important to Natalias success. It is however very hard, because of the army and navy size of Natalia. One probably has to wait until UK hopefully spheres Natalia.

Then it is time to annex Zulu, Madagascar Madagascar, Transvaal Transvaal or Oranje Oranje. Annexing Zulu will give a lot of soldier POPs and thus the ability to wage war on its own.
