Legitimacy

Describe the legitimacy mechanic.

Republican Tradition

This is a value between 0 and 100%, and a newly formed republic starts with just 1% tradition. Low republican tradition increases stability cost, and high tradition reduces revolt risk. If republican tradition is low, a country is more likely to have rebels supportive of restoring the monarchy, and if republican tradition ever goes below 1% a country will convert to a despotic monarchy rather quickly.

Republican Tradition increases by approximately +1% each year, and there are events that force a player to make hard choice between tradition losses or other negative consequences. There are some advantages to playing a Republic – for one thing it is the only form of government that allows a player to choose leaders in elections. A country will lose 10% Republican Tradition if it re-elects the same leader, to represent the fear of a republic losing that regular change of office that guarantees the legitimacy of the government, and if someone is re-elected while there is low tradition the Republican period comes to an end and a despotic monarchy is born.
