Changing ideology[edit]

A country can change its ideology in four ways:

  • Having an election while another ideology has more than 50% support. This creates an event that enables a peaceful change of power without a civil war.

  • Executing a coup (see below)
  • Fighting and winning a civil war. The support of the conflicting ideology decides how much troops and states they get at the beginning.
