Checking on how close (or far) you are from being able to form a new nation is very easy. Remember that the country has to be eligible under your current rule. For example, if you start with Sweden, you won't see Mexico as an option. You'll need to visit your Cultures tab on the far left and then click on Unification Candidates. Hover over or click on the candidate to see how close you are to unification.
