Quick Overview

The clearreforms command is used to remove all the government reforms of the specified country. If no country tag is specified, the command will be applied to the country that the player is currently playing as.

In-Depth Description

The clearreforms command in Europa Universalis IV is a console command that, when entered, will remove all government reforms from the nation you are currently playing.

Government reforms in EU4 represent the organizational structure of your nation and provide various bonuses. They are progressively unlocked over time and require a significant amount of resources to implement, specifically the 'Government Reform' points which are accumulated slowly over time.

Upon entering the clearreforms command in the console, all of these reforms will be instantly removed. This can be helpful if you're unhappy with the current path you've taken with your government reforms and wish to start fresh, or if you've received negative changes from an event or decision and would like to reset your reforms.

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 .
