The game itself is an interactive map of the world divided into the provinces that compose a nation. Each of these provinces contributes to their country either positively or negatively, as provinces can both provide resources to a nation and serve as a point of unrest and rebellion. The gameplay requires the player to lead a nation by finding a balance of military, diplomacy, and economy. The player does so through their choices as sovereign of their nation, and through the spending of resources available to them; Prestige, Stability, Gold, Manpower, and Monarch Points (Administrative, Diplomatic, Military). Players can choose to conquest the world by military might, become a colonial superpower, establish trade dominance, or anything else they can imagine. The game is a sandbox environment and while there is no strict rule on winning the game, a loss occurs when the player's nation is removed from the map.
