Quick Overview

The "spread_revolution" command in Europa Universalis IV is used to start a Revolution in a particular country. When entered, this command will cause the specified country to undergo a Revolution, which triggers a series of events related to revolutionary movements and political turmoil.

In-Depth Description

The "spread_revolution" command in Europa Universalis IV is a console command, which means it is mainly used in the game's debug mode for testing purposes. It's generally not a part of normal gameplay, but players might use it to change the game's world state for fun or to explore different scenarios.

The "spread_revolution" command, as the name suggests, was designed to spread the revolution target to the specified country. The target country will become revolutionary. It's a way to instantly alter the political landscape of a particular nation, even if that country is not meeting the normal prerequisites for revolution, which usually requires a certain level of unrest and other factors to occur naturally in the game.

This command makes the respective country the target of the revolution. This can change the government type to a revolutionary government and can lead to certain events that affect the revolutionary country and other nations around it.

You should use this command when you want to create a world where the ideas of the revolution are more widespread. This could be for a challenge, to make the game more interesting, or to explore hypothetical scenarios. Do remember that it could drastically alter game balance and the power dynamics in the world map, however.
