Factions represent powerful and influential groups within the country. Each faction has an influence rating associated with it, and the faction with the highest influence will give a set of bonuses (and penalties) to the country. The influence of a faction can either be increased by spending 10 monarch power from the faction's category, or will automatically change due to certain modifiers.
Faction details and interactions can be accessed via the unique faction icon in the lower right corner of the map, next to the HRE and papacy icons.
