All countries have their governing capacity to rule their provinces. Governing capacity represents the ability of a nation to rule its lands efficiently. It is modified by government ranks, types, and reforms, along with administrative technology and estate privileges. Every province takes a share in governing capacity, based on its Development.png development. The share is halved if the province is assigned to a trade company and divided by four if it is in a territory. This reflects the historical difficulty of fully integrating every part of a large country, especially faraway or overseas lands. The player must decide which areas to turn into states, and which areas to leave as territories and trade companies.
