This is less a "want" and more a semi-relevant shower thought, but it occurs to me that Mendev might be the closest equivalent that Golarion has to the Baltic states. Some of the earlier crusades, especially the Third, involved persecution of locals (both Mendevian and Sarkorian) in addition to the demons--mirroring the real-world Northern Crusades where people from further south invaded northeastern Europeans with different religious beliefs to them. Being only a little to the west of Fantasy Counterpart Russia helps too.
I'm not necessarily requesting that the comparison be leaned into more, since Mendev is a place where it makes sense for it not to resemble real world cultures as much, more just an interesting parallel I noticed.
