In-Depth Description

The remove_rival is a console command in Europa Universalis IV that allows the player to remove a specified rival from a specific country.

In the context of the game, a rival is a nation chosen by the player to counter or to compete against.

Rivals can cause various challenges including military conflicts, political intrigue, and economic competition.

Deciding on rivals can be a strategic decision as it can affect diplomatic relations with other countries.

The remove_rival command requires the country tag of the nation where you wish to remove the rival from. The country tag is a unique identifier for every country in the game, for example, FRA for France or ENG for England.

The basic syntax of the command is as follows: remove_rival [country tag]. The country tag is the nation you want to remove the rival relation from.

This command can be helpful when you want to ease tensions or improve diplomatic relations with a certain country that is considered as a rival. It can also be used when you want to shift your diplomatic and military focus to other nations or issues.
