Prussia is one of the formable countries in Europe and can be formed by Flag of Brandenburg Brandenburg, the Flag of Teutonic Order Teutonic Order, or any country with Prussian, Saxon, or Pomeranian culture (besides end-game tags such as Germany and a unified, centralised Holy Roman Empire). It also exists in campaigns started in 1525 or later. Prussia is a powerful military state with strong morale, discipline and tradition; enough to ensure strong generals in commanding large armies, well-trained troops in aforementioned armies and good military rulers.

If played correctly, Prussia can dominate Central Europe and the rest of the HRE. Prussia is considered one of the more advanced nations due to the difficult requirements and challenges that must be overcome to form, therefore it is not recommended for beginners. However, once inner quarrels are settled and the homeland is secured it can easily become one of the most entertaining yet still challenging nations. Prussia can also play a decisive role in the League Wars.

Prussian governments[edit | edit source]

Prussia has three unique government reforms, Prussian Monarchy for monarchies, Stratocratic Administration for republics, and Militaristic Divine State for theocracies.

Prussian Monarchy[edit | edit source]

Having the Prussian Monarchy gives:

  • National unrest.png −2 National unrest
  • War exhaustion.png −0.02 Monthly war exhaustion
  • Autonomy.png −0.075 Monthly autonomy change
  • Maximum absolutism +10 Maximum absolutism
  • Monarch military skill +3 Monarch military skill (for future monarchs)
  • Governing capacity.png −50% Governing capacity
  • Nobility loyalty equilibrium.png +10% Nobility loyalty equilibrium

Note: The Prussian monarchy doesn't set a minimum of 3 Military power.png for rulers, but directly increases their military stat by 3. Due to the way ruler stats are calculated, it gives a 5/8 (62.5%) chance of getting a 6 Military power.png ruler.

Stratocratic Administration[edit | edit source]

Having the Stratocratic Administration gives:

  • War exhaustion.png −0.02 Monthly war exhaustion
  • Militarization of state.png +0.05 Militarization of state
  • Autonomy.png −0.075 Monthly autonomy change
  • Maximum absolutism +30 Maximum absolutism[1]
  • Yearly republican tradition.png −0.5 Yearly republican tradition

  • Yearly devotion.png −0.5 Yearly devotion
  • Maximum absolutism +10 Maximum absolutism
  • Manpower in true faith provinces +15% Manpower in true faith provinces
  • Governing capacity modifier −50% Governing capacity modifier


Militarization[edit | edit source]

The government reforms Prussian Monarchy, Stratocratic Administration, Militaristic Divine State, Crusading Empire, Livonian Militarist Monarchy and Zulu Tribe have militarization which is a system that gives army-oriented bonuses the more militarized the nation gets on a scale of 0 to 100%. It is possible at any time to spend 50 Military power.png military power to gain 10 Militarization of state.png militarization. At 100% Militarization of state.png militarization of the state the country will gain:

Discipline.png +10% Discipline
Manpower recovery speed.png +20% Manpower recovery speed
Land maintenance modifier.png −20% Land maintenance modifier

Monthly militarization is affected by the following:

Militarization of state.png Triggers
+0.020 Has completed the Prussian mission Empower the Junkers
+0.020 Has enacted the nobility privilege “Junker Supremacy”
+0.050 Has enacted the republican government reform Stratocratic Administration

+0.050 with tier 3 Brandenburg Gate (+0.01 with Tier 1 and +0.02 with Tier 2)
+0.100 Army tradition (at 100%)
+0.025 Legitimacy (at 100%)
+0.000 Legitimacy (at 50%)
−0.025 Legitimacy (at 0%)
−0.010 Over governing capacity (per 1%)
−0.500 Bankruptcy

Formation[edit | edit source]

There are three possible decisions that form Prussia. One is for the Flag of Teutonic Order Teutonic Order, and is based on the secularization of that order into the Duchy of Prussia in 1525. One is for Flag of Brandenburg Brandenburg, based on the Electors of Brandenburg, having inherited the Duchy of Prussia, crowning themselves King in Prussia in 1701. The last is for any other country with Prussian, Saxon or Pomeranian culture, representing another German country taking the path that Brandenburg did historically. Note that the latter two decisions will elevate the nation to kingdom rank and will consequently make it leave the Holy Roman Empire unless it is an elector.

Execute decision.pngReform into Prussia


The age of crusading knights is fading fast. There will come a time when we no longer stand to gain by holding on to the trappings of a monastic order. Besides, the Grandmaster would much rather be a Duke... or King. By reforming into a secular state, we can revitalize our administration and gain the respect of our neighbors.

The lands once conquered and Germanized by the Teutonic Order will always need protection against rapacious neighbors. Should the Order fail in this duty, we can take their place and usher in a new era of prosperity and Prussian discipline.
