Stages Edit

There are 11 stages in Centralization vs. Decentralization:

  • Decentralization 1 - 5
  • Decentralization 0 (Midpoint)
  • Centralization 1 - 5 (In-game are displayed as negative numbers)

Each government type can centralize or decentralize as follows:

Government Stages
Medieval Monarchy Decentralization 5 - Decentralization 1
Feudal Monarchy Decentralization 5 - Centralization 1
Despotic Monarchy Decentralization 5 - Centralization 2
Administrative Monarchy Decentralization 5 - Centralization 3
Absolute Monarchy Decentralization 1 - Centralization 5
Constitutional Monarchy Decentralization 5 - Centralization 3
Enlightened Despotism Decentralization 3 - Centralization 5

Policies Edit

The policies 'Centralization Efforts' and 'Decentralization Efforts' are used to centralize and decentralize the nation respectively. These can be enacted by either having a:

  • Statesman as the diplomatic advisor
  • Ruler with 3 or greater administrative skill

Enacting the 'Centralization Efforts' policy has the following country modifiers:

  • Yearly Corruption: +0.05
  • Yearly Prestige: +0.01

Enacting the 'Decentralization Efforts' policy has no country modifiers.

Centralization and decentralization progress are lost over time if the policies removed.

Speed Edit

Centralization process is sped by having:

  • Ruler with high administrative skill
  • High stability

Centralization process is slowed by having:

  • Ruler with low administrative skill
  • Low Stability
  • Having a disaster will stop the process
