Flag of Poland Poland got a unique national focus tree in time with the game's release (as part of a free DLC).

Poland's unique NF tree.


The focus tree can be divided into 5 main branches:

Central Region Strategy - The Four Year Plan
This branch offers the possibility to develop the nation's infrastructure and factories as well as enabling up to two additional research slots.
Prepare For The Next War
This branch has options to keep pace/modernize the Polish ground forces with/ahead of its neighbors.
Air Base Expansion
This branch includes focuses which grants several research bonuses to improve. First focus of the branch instantly expands state Capital's airport capacity (Danzig).
Develop Polish Ship Building
This branch includes focuses which grants several research bonuses that could potentially specialize or widen the range of ships available for service soon. Includes research bonus for naval doctrine advancements.
Strengthen The Polish State
This branch contains various diplomatic focuses and focuses to change the ideology of the government. This branch has mutually exclusive choices that enables the player to forge an alliance or create one of its own.
