Playing as the USA in Victoria 3

Victoria 3 is set in 1836 and runs through the Victorian era, so all countries available to play are those which existed during those years. The USA during this period did not bother with Europe much, so players will avoid any overly complicated European politics.

Instead, there will be indigenous people’s tribes, Mexico, and Canada to have dealings with. Plenty of Journal objectives are available, plus challenges regarding the slave trade and continued industrialisation to get your teeth into!

America is a Great Power, starting with 294 Prestige. This means they have room to grow, and players won’t have the pressure of dominating from the very start of the game. Players can enjoy the clear expansion goals the USA has to offer, and the potentially self-sufficient economy that can develop.
