Countries are the acting entities of Hearts of Iron IV. Each is controlled by a player or by AI and pursues its own national focus tree during a game as well as choosing various political Ideas, engaging in Diplomacy, Construction, Research, Production, and the command of its military units.

Each country belongs to one of four political Ideologies, which can change over a game, though there are in most cases no ways to increase the Non-Aligned ideology without modding.

Major countriesEdit

Countries in HOI4 are either major countries or minor countries. In a war, a faction will only surrender when all its participating major countries capitulate. Major powers refer to ones with the highest number of factories, within the top 7 or 70% of the average of the top 7, updated monthly. Countries cannot lose their major status while at war. Faction leaders are also considered major countries.

The major countries in 1936 are:

Note: A tag is a three-letter code for a country that doesn't vary with localization or with changes in ideology, unlike a name (GER is always the same country, even though it's called the   German Reich when fascist and   Germany when democratic). Console commands require referring to countries by tag, and they're sometimes also used as fan jargon.

Note: Any countries created after the game starts will be given a tag D## (with the ## ascending based on the number of new nations already created).

Note: Any statistics relative to releasable countries is given on the hypothetical scenario of them owning all of their core lands in 1936

List of releasable countriesEdit

Notes:

  1. Any statistics relative to releasable countries is given on the hypothetical scenario of them owning all of their core lands in 1936.
  2. Countries with an asterisk cannot be released via the release nation button. It must be released via National Focus.   Egypt is releasable in Ironman.
  3. A Country released as a puppet will have 60% of the overlord's party and 13.33% of every other party.
