Quick Overview

The harmony command in Europa Universalis IV is used to increase a specified country's Harmony.

This is particularly relevant for countries that follow the Confucian religion.

In game mechanics, Harmony represents the stability and unity of a country following this faith.

Increasing Harmony can improve the country's stability and confer various benefits.

In-Depth Description

The harmony command in Europa Universalis IV is used to instantly increase the Harmony of the country that you're currently playing.

Harmony is a special mechanic in the game for countries that follow the Confucian religion, and it represents the balance and social order within your nation.

Harmony is normally increased slowly over time, at a base rate of 1 per year. It can be decreased by converting provinces to your state religion or by certain negative events. Your country's Harmony has a range of -100 to +100.

Having a high level of Harmony gives some great benefits to your country, including: a reduction in stability cost modifier, increased religious unity, and a decrease in development cost. On the other hand, having a low level of Harmony can increase the unrest in your nation's provinces and make your country more prone to rebellions.

You should use this command when you're playing a country with the Confucian religion and you want to increase your Harmony quickly, whether to gain benefits from high harmony or to mitigate the negative effects of low Harmony.
