China in 1836 with all its substates

Xinjiang is a primitive nation that is a substate of China China. It replaces the Xinjiang Clique Xinjiang Clique from the vanilla game and is only available in AHD and HOD. Unlike what seems most natural, Uigur is only an accepted culture in Xinjiang, while Beifaren is the primary culture. It is by far smallest of the Chinese substates in terms of population.

It is the most western province and the least populated in China and it borders Tibet Tibet, Punjab Punjab and Russia Russia. Due to being a puppet, Xinjiang cannot declare war, and have to westernize in other ways. Encouraging Bureaucrats mini.pngbureaucrats and Clergymen mini.pngclergy is thus very important. One should have a 100% spending on education and administration if in any way possible. Money can be saved on the military instead. Xinjiang has no use of the military anyway. If China westernizes before Xinjiang China will annex it by the event The Middle Kingdom, but if Xinjiang manages to westernize before China, it will gain its full independence with the event Embrace Westernization. Alternatively if one of the other substates westernizes before both China and Xinjiang, they will also be independent via the event The Breakup of China. China will however still have cores on Xinjiang, which will be a serious threat for the entire game.

Even if Xinjiang manages to westernize and thus break free, China will still be a significant threat due to the sheer size. Getting an alliance with either Russia Russia or United Kingdom United Kingdom is key to succes.
