Elections[edit | edit source]

Main article: Election events

When an election cycle ends, you get an event in which you can select the ruler:

  • Re-elect the current ruler. The country loses −2.5 Republican tradition.pngrepublican tradition per election cycle year, but the ruler gains 1 of each skill. This is to represent the fear that the ruler is becoming entrenched and despotic, more like a monarchy.
  • Administrative candidate (4/1/1)
  • Diplomatic candidate (1/4/1)
  • Military candidate (1/1/4)
  • A relative of the current ruler if a government reform allows re-electing from the ruling family. The country loses −1 Republican tradition.pngrepublican tradition per election cycle year. This candidate is between 30 and 50 years old. With the Political Dynasties reform this candidate has −2 to their skills.

Re-election cost can be reduced by a number of sources:

−20%
  • Bolognese idea 2: Bentivoglio Family
−10%
  • Diplomatic-Plutocratic: Mandatory Service

The reinforce republican values government reform: Reelection cost.png −10% Reelection cost

If the ruler dies in office, a similar event occurs but without the possibility for re-election. Compared to a monarchy, one has much more control over who rules, and there is no stability loss when he/she dies (except if he is killed in combat and/or if the ruler rules for life). However, a freshly elected ruler is usually not very good, and (except for Dutch Republics and Italian Signoria) one can't make royal marriages. Republican leaders can be used as military leaders like their monarch counterparts. If their leader is killed in action, the republic suffers −1 Stability.png stability instead of −2.

In most republics re-electing the same ruler with less than 20 Republican tradition.png republican tradition, will enact the Presidential Dictator reform (where the ruler reigns of life) if the Res Publica.png Res Publica expansion is enabled, or turn the country into a monarchy if the DLC is not enabled. This does not happen for revolutionary countries, Pirate Republic or republics which can't re-elect their ruler. See below for other ways how a presidential dictatorship can happen and how to turn into a monarchy afterwards.

Cultural sufferance[edit | edit source]

All republics have a small bonus that helps mitigate the penalty to non-accepted culture provinces. It’s not applied to cultures belonging to the same culture group. The bonus consists of:[1]

Local tax modifier.png +10%.0 Local tax modifier
Local manpower modifier.png +10%.0 Local manpower modifier
Local sailors modifier.png +5%.0 Local sailors modifier
Local unrest.png −0.5% Local unrest

Republican tradition[edit | edit source]

Republican tradition.png Republican tradition is the republican counterpart of how legitimate the ruling power is perceived by the general population. It's also a way to show how "true" the government holds up to republican ideals (i.e. if a country elects a new ruler in every election). This property ranges between 0 and 100.

New republics will start with 100 tradition, unless the nation in question was formerly a different government type and changed their government type through the final reform tier, in which case it will start with 50. Each year republican tradition increases by a base of +1. Various events can make a player choose between sacrificing tradition or suffering another negative consequence. Like legitimacy, republican tradition has linearly-scaling effects based on its level:

Variable 0% 50% 100%
National unrest.png National unrest 0 −1 −2
Reform progress growth.png Reform progress growth 0 +50% +100%
Burghers loyalty equilibrium.png Burghers loyalty equilibrium 0 +2.5% +5%

Low republican tradition and reverting to monarchy[edit | edit source]

Main article: Republic events § Rise of a despot

In most republics re-electing the same ruler with less than 20 Republican tradition.png republican tradition, will enact the Presidential Dictator reform (where the ruler reigns of life) if the Res Publica.png Res Publica expansion is enabled, or turn the country into a monarchy if the DLC is not enabled. This does not happen for revolutionary countries, Pirate Republic or republics which can't re-elect their ruler. A Revolutionary Republic and a Revolutionary State will become a Revolutionary Empire when re-electing a ruler with less than 20 Republican tradition.png republican tradition.

Republican governments (except Revolutionary countries, Pirate Republic, Dutch Republic, Protectorate Parliament, Board of Admirals and Colonial Nations) with low tradition can collapse into despotism. Below 40 Republican tradition.png, the ruler of a republic (again, with the above exceptions) may declare himself the head of a new government type, depending on whether Res Publica.png Res Publica is active:

  • Without Res Publica: the government becomes a monarchy, with a free choice among valid tier 1 reforms.
  • With Res Publica: the tier 1 reform Presidential Dictatorship is enacted.

With Res Publica, the event becomes more likely below 30, 20, 10 and 1 Republican tradition.png republican tradition. Without Res Publica, the event can only happen below 1 republican tradition.

When a presidential dictator dies with republican tradition below 50, it becomes a monarchy, allowing a free choice among the valid tier 1 monarchy reforms (typically Feudal Nobility or Autocracy). Republican tradition does not normally increase during a dictatorship, but if it's above 50 when the ruler dies, the presidential dictatorship reform is removed and a new tier 1 reform can be chosen. Events and the Strengthen Government action can be used to get above 50 republican tradition during a dictatorship.

Revolutionary Republics instead become Revolutionary Empires if republican tradition falls to 0, or 40 if the Imperials Imperials faction are in power (requires Rights of Man.png Rights of Man).

A Revolutionary State and a Pirate Republic can get the event The Stability of the [Root.GovernmentName] if the Republican tradition.png republican tradition falls below 20. This event gives them a “Committee of Public Safety” or a “Mutineer Council” respectively which act like a regency and don't allow the declaration of wars. To remove the “Committee of Public Safety” or the “Mutineer Council” the country must have at least Republican tradition.png 50 republican tradition when an election happens. Then the election happens normally and the “regency” is removed. If the republican tradition is lower, no election happens and the “regency” continues.

Falling to dictatorship is particularly dangerous for merchant republics, who will instantly lose their trade leagues.

Reform tiers[edit | edit source]

Note: Revolution target.png Revolutionary Republics use completely different Reforms for Tier 2, Tier 4 and Tier 10.

Similarly, Gov pirate republic.png Pirate Republics use completely different Reforms for Tier 2, Tier 4 and Tier 7.

Thus, the other Reforms in these Tiers wont specifically mention that they arent available for Revolution target.png Revolutionary / Gov pirate republic.png Piratical Nations.

While the Captains lead the crew, the Buccaneers fight and the Smugglers trade, it is the Quartermasters who keep the piratical business running.

Devolution of Powers icon
No single person can rule a country as big and complex as ours. Collecting such powers in the hand of one ruler is also contrary to the Republican ideals of our ancestors. Decentralization and Devolution is how we can best remain able to dynamically meet the needs of an ever-growing state.

  • Maximum absolutism +25 Maximum absolutism
  • Reelection cost.png −10% Reelection cost

It’s become clear that the cult of personality surrounding our ruler is rapidly returning us to the old ways of government. We cannot allow this to happen, so by concentrating power into a council of elected individuals to represent the values of the Revolution, we strip power away from the individual at our state’s head and create another shield against the horror of absolute rulership.

Not all gold comes from lost treasures or from looted merchant ships. Some come from the trade with goods some might consider illegal.

Although our state holds Egalité as one of its core values, it is clear that we have completely failed in our goal to treat all our people with fairness and equality. The core principle of our nation must be to eliminate the barriers of gender, culture, and social class and ensure that it is known that all people are created equal and a good start to that would be to ensure that religion remains a private matter and does not dictate one’s rights within the state.

Three Social Classes icon
In the days before the birth of the Revolution, the old government attempted to sway the people away from taking arms by allowing three social classes representation within the government; the clergy, the peasants, and the upper class. Perhaps we could emulate this system by organizing our people into an upper, middle, and lower class based on their economic status and creating three distinct political entities within our government to represent their interests.

Though many Revolutionary politicians are supporting the idea of a Revolutionary Empire with a hereditary ruler at its head, others are fiercely resisting this idea and claiming that it betrays the very ideals of the Revolution itself.

By electing our Presidents to rule for life, we will both secure the absolute leadership the Imperialists demand without completely abandoning the ideals of the Republic.
