- Main article: National focus
National foci are a replacement for the Decisions in Hearts of Iron III. One national focus can be active at any given time, and each takes a certain number of days. When completed, they provide benefits. Each of the seven majors has a unique national focus tree and Poland also receives one through a free DLC. Other countries have a generic one.
- Main article: Ideas
Political power is spent to manage the government via ideas. These take the form of laws, ministers, and companies. Enacting or removing an idea costs political power. Some ideas may also have an upkeep cost, but this does not seem to have been implemented yet.
- Main article: Commanders
Political power may be used to produce new commanders.

National unity is a measure of the war-resolve and the will to persevere of a nation. It is expressed as a percentage. The default start value is 70%. Some countries start with deviant values:
|Countries (1936)||Countries (1939)|
|90%||Canada German Reich Greece Sweden||Canada German Reich Greece Sweden|
|80%||Mexico Portugal||Italy Mexico Portugal United Kingdom|
|75%||Belgium Netherlands||Belgium Netherlands|
|70%||Default start value for all other countries.|
|60%||Italy United Kingdom United States Yugoslavia||Yugoslavia|
|55%||Turkey Soviet Union||Turkey Soviet Union|
|50%||Austria Spain||Austria Spain|
When a country at war has lost a share of its Victory Points superior than its National Unity, it will capitulate (surrender).
For example, Poland holds 61 Victory Points in 1939 and has a 75% National Unity. If Poland losses more than 75% of its Victory Points, 46 points or more, it will capitulate. But because Warsaw is worth 30 VPs and Krakow 20 VPs on their own, Poland will not capitulate before losing both cities.
If the capitulating country is alone in the war, or if it is the last country to capitulate in the faction, then a Peace conference will start.
