MEIOU and Taxes is an Europa Universalis IV total conversion created to enhance its experience.
This mod has been formed by the conversion and merger of two major EUIII mods: MEIOU, and Death & Taxes. It adds over a thousand new provinces and hundreds of new nations to conquer and tax. Almost every aspect of the game has been either reworked or completely redone.
M&T 2.0 ...
The first part of the name is a play on the old Habsburg motto AEIOU. Which meant Autria est imperare orbi universo, that is "it is Austria's destiny to rule the world". In Meiou they changed to the first word from Austria to Mihi, meaning "it is my destiny to rule the world". The second is based on a quote of Benjamin Franklin: " in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes."
