PDM completely changes the National Values system of Victoria 2.

Before, there were only 3 National Values (NVs); Order, Liberty and Equality, which each country was stuck with for the entire game. In PDM there are now 17 NVs; the 3 standard NVs, Order, Liberty and Equality have been joined by; Tradition, Enlightenment, Progress, Loyalty, Independence, Might, Freedom, Fraternity, Unity, Supremacy, Prosperity, Productivity, Glory and Dominion.

PDM has introduced a system wherein countries can change their NV (this is especially important for Unciv countries) into more advanced forms, based on certain criteria.

Changing National ValuesEdit

NV New-2

A chart showing the progression of National Values from uncivilized to advanced.

All uncivilized countries start the game with either the Tradition or Enlightenment NV. It's possible to switch between the two (details below), but chances are small... and it's much more likely for an Enlightenment country to move to Tradition if it's been overthrown by rebels.

Once the unciv reaches the "half-way" point to westernization (more or less) they can switch to an advanced NV: either Progress, Loyalty or Independence. Doing so gains them the National Confusion modifier for 10 years (preventing them from westernizing before it's gone) and can be reverted by a successful rebellion. Once an unciv becomes westernized, it receives an event allowing it to pick one of two possible civilized NV's.

All civilized countries start the game with either the Order, Liberty, Equality or Might NV. Advancement requires a minimum of 100 Prestige and the Revolution & Counterrevolution technology (not to mention other requirements based on the individual NV).

A player can "revert" back to a non-advanced NV, but AI countries can't. The player can go back the same way he advanced, choosing between the two "parent" values of his advanced value, thus allowing him to change National Values lateraly, as long as the requirements are met. For example : Equality -> Prosperity -> Liberty -> Glory -> Might

Uncivilized National ValuesEdit

EnlightenmentEdit

Effects:

  • +5% Research modifier
  • +0.01 consciousness in core provinces

Events:

  • Rejecting Westernization: If the country has gained the "Uncivilized Isolationism" modifier, there is a chance of this event firing and allowing the unciv to switch to the Tradition NV. Refusing increases militancy in reactionaries, while agreeing increases militancy in liberals. This event occurs much more quickly if the country as been overthrown by Angry Rioters.
  • Clash of Ideals: If consciousness rises above 3, this event can fire and increases both the liberal ideology in all pops within the state capital as well as increasing militancy by 2.
  • New Ideas: Offers the option of either accepting the "new ideas" brought forward by liberals, providing research points and angering aristocrats (increasing their militancy and reactionary ideology), or rejecting them and reducing research but reducing all militancy by 2.

TraditionEdit

Effects:

  • -5% Research modifier
  • -0.01 militancy in core provinces

Events:

  • Embracing Westernization: If the country has gained the "Western Influences" modifier, there is a chance of this event firing and allowing the unciv to switch to the Enlightenment NV. Refusing increases militancy in liberals, while agreeing increases militancy in reactionaries.
