Provinces are the atomic geographic unit. States consist of a set of provinces.

A map of all provinces, colored by terrain.

Victory Points

Each province is worth at least one victory point. Important cities are worth more victory points than normal provinces. These are the provinces named on the map. They are worth ten times their Victory Point level displayed on the tooltip for the province. A country capitulates when the enemy holds a higher percentage of the original victory points than the country's national unity.

Brest is a named province which has 30 Victory Points, as shown on the tooltip and the state view. But it is worth ten times that in calculating whether France would capitulate in a war (300 points). The unnamed provinces in the state of Brittany are each worth 1 point.

Capital

Each country has a predefined capital state, of which the capital province is the province with the most Victory Points in that state. If the original capital city is occupied, the capital moves to the city with the next-highest number of Victory Points.

The Supply Area which the capital state belongs to also acts as the source from which supply flows.
