Policies

From Europa Universalis 4 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Policies are a mechanic introduced in patch 1.6. Each policy gives a substantial bonus but costs one monarch power per month depending on the category of the chosen policy.

Polices are unlocked by completing idea groups. Each possible pair of ideas from different types unlocks a policy. Since there are 6 administrative, 6 diplomatic, and 7 military idea groups, there are 6 * 6 + 6 * 7 + 6 * 7 = 120 different policies. Since nations may have up to 8 idea groups, they can have up to 21 possible policies available. However, a nation may only have 5 policies active at once.

Once activated, a policy cannot be deactivated for ten years.
