Quick Overview

The command add_republican_tradition in Europa Universalis IV is used to add a specified amount of republican tradition to your current nation.

Republican tradition is a measurement of how much your republic upholds the principles of a republic, like non-hereditary rule and regular elections.

In-Depth Description

The add_republican_tradition command in Europa Universalis IV (EU4) is a cheat or console command that allows you to add a specific amount of republican tradition to your nation.

Republic tradition is a value illustrating the tradition of a nation's republicanism and is unique to republics.

It ranges from 0 to 100, and maintaining a high republican tradition is crucial for the stability of a republican government.

A country with a low republican tradition may turn into a dictatorship or monarchist government.

On the other hand, maintaining a higher republican tradition helps protect against this.

When you use the command add_republican_tradition, followed by a numerical value (for example, add_republican_tradition 25), you will add 25 republican tradition to your nation.

Using this command can help save or stabilize your republic, especially when your republic's tradition is low or decreasing quickly due to various in-game actions or decisions.

How to Open the Command Console

In EU4, cheats are executed from the command console, a text box that you type commands into.

To open the command console press the ~(tilde) key, which is typically located under ESC (escape).

If your keyboard does not have that key, or pressing ~ does not work, try the following keys:

  • ~
  • SHIFT + 2
  • SHIFT + 3
  • ALT + 2 + 1

Type your command into the console, and then press ENTER .
