The European Union mechanics have been a main part of the mod since 30/8/2015. Similar to the Holy Roman Empire Holy Roman Empire and its mechanics, the EU can be unified in a similar fashion into a single, unified European state if all the European Union reforms are successful passed.

EU Mechanics Edit

The EU is present in any game starting from 1958. In order to join it, a country must be an independent, constitutional/parliamentary state. If the game started before 1958, it's possible for a country to found the EU if in addition to the above requirements, it also has one of the capitals of the historical founding members. The EU can also be dismantled by a non-member country owning all the capitals of the founding members.

The main benefits of being part of the European Union are: reduced unrest and cost to increase stability, development and technology; increased prestige and trade power; however you will get a small production penalty. Members will also get many profitable events and decisions. Every country in an offensive war with a member will get +1 aggressive expansion towards every other member every month.

European Elections Edit

Every six months a new European leader is selected among the countries with the highestPrestigeprestige and Legitimacy legitimacy/ Republican tradition republican tradition. The leader gets an additional increase inPrestigeprestige and the ability to pass additional European reforms.
