Subjects in Victoria 3

A diplomatic treaty known as a “subject pact” places one country (the subject) under the authority of another country (the overlord). The subject is integrated into the market of its ruler. There are various types of Subjects as follows:

  • Personal Union
  • Customs Union
  • Tributary
  • Vassal
  • Protectorate
  • Puppet
  • Dominion

Let’s see what exactly is a Dominion subject, and what is considered to be a Puppet subject.

Dominion

Dominion has a great deal of diplomatic autonomy in Victoria 3, and it is not required to take part in its overlord’s battles. A dominion is able to have its own subjects or diplomatic plays. When a country is formed, it will be annexed and provide its overlord 25% of its wealth. Another option is to use diplomacy to annex it.

Puppet

In Victoria 3, recognized powers have the power to manipulate a lesser nation. A puppet is a sort of Subject that is unable to initiate their own Diplomatic Plays but is compelled to participate in their Overlord’s Wars and pay 20% of their weekly Treasury income to their Overlord. A Puppet’s Rank cannot rise to the same level as or higher than that of their Overlord, and the Overlord may use the Annexation Diplomatic Play to attack the puppet.

Differences and Conclusion

There is no diplomatic autonomy for a ‘Puppet‘. Puppet spends 30% of its money on its overlord. It can be annexed by a diplomatic maneuver, and it’s unable to launch its own diplomatic plays. A ‘Dominion’, on the other hand, has a great level of diplomatic autonomy, with the freedom to have its own subjects, initiate its own diplomatic moves, and refrain from supporting the wars of its overlord. When a country is formed, it will be annexed and provide its overlord 25% of its wealth. Another option is to use diplomacy to annex it.
