Each national idea group has two starting bonuses, seven bonuses that are unlocked sequentially, and one final bonus unlocked when the 7th sequential bonus is unlocked. One sequential bonus is unlocked for every third idea unlocked from the idea groups, so once three idea groups have been filled all national ideas will have been unlocked.
