In-Depth Description

The add_prosperity command is a console command in Europa Universalis IV that increases the prosperity of a specific state.

Prosperity is a game mechanic that represents the economic health of a state and is influenced by factors such as stability, war, and disasters.

When you use the add_prosperity command, followed by the province ID, the prosperity level of that particular state will increase.

For example, if you input add_prosperity 15 50, it will boost the prosperity in the state with the ID 15 by 50.

Prosperity can have various positive effects on a state - it can increase tax revenue, production, manpower, and lower devastation. However, it will decrease during wars and can completely disappear due to sieges or devastation. It is best used strategically, when you're looking to influence the economic prosperity of a particular state.

This command can be useful in several scenarios. For example, if you're trying to recover from a war and need to boost your economy quickly, or if you're looking to increase the prosperity of a state to prevent any negative effects from a high devastation level. You can also use it to create more favorable conditions for diplomatic actions or to better sustain your troops during war times.
