Dagestan is sandwiched between Persia and Russia to the south and north and has Georgia as a neighbor to the west. Dagestan faces many threats and challenges: expansionist Russia to the north, Persia to the south, eventually a powerful Ottoman empire, and each other. The most significant threat to Dagestan is definitely Russia, who may come thundering down from the steppes very quickly after reforming. Dagestan may also have a serious threat from Georgia, which usually outclasses Dagestan militarily and often declares war on it. However, it also frequently allies with Georgia. This pact may be a headache for both Russia and the Ottoman Empire, as they threaten the usually ill-defended regions of Armenia and Don Voisko. Dagestan's land is very poor, and with only a single meager yield farmland to raise revenue it is likely to stay that way throughout the game.
Uniquely among Muslim factions in the game, Dagestan fields and trains a European-style army, despite its buildings and agents all being in the same style of the other Muslim factions.

An unfortunate region subjected to raids and invasions from Mongols, Tamerlane, Persia, and Russia, Dagestan changed hands many times throughout its history. It is currently part of Russia, although its inhabitants have and continue to seek independence.
- The flag used by Dagestan is a slightly fictionalised version of a variation of the flag of the North Caucasian Emirate. However, this is historically anachronistic as this flag was used around 1920.
