卫星国,或者说傀儡国次国家自治领或者附庸国,是指那些允许另一个国家在国际舞台上代表它的国家。卫星国在政府、经济和其他内政方面保持独立,但不得签署条约或对外国宣战。“母国”保留一些特权,能够与附庸国签署防御联盟和军事准入条约。卫星国也可以在相邻地区殖民。在战争期间,宗主国有一种特殊的外交互动来控制傀儡国的军队。

如果母国处于战争状态,则卫星国或自治领也将自动与敌人交战(除非战争的敌人是卫星国所处势力范围的领袖)。

宗主-傀儡关系的形成

形成

宗主-傀儡关系可以通过以下方式形成:

  • 一国在战争中强迫另一国成为傀儡国。
  • 一国和平地释放另一个国家为傀儡国。
解除

宗主-傀儡关系可以通过以下方式解除:

  • 宗主国不再存在,而傀儡国仍然存在。
  • 宗主或傀儡任一国爆发革命。
  • 傀儡国成为列强
  • 通过“解除傀儡”的宣战理由发起战争。
  • 特定的事件决议

除了努力成为列强之外,傀儡国并不能做什么其它的事情来主动争取独立。

Spheres and puppets

However, great powers can still attempt to place the satellite state within their sphere of influence or, if the satellite's government allows it, invest in the local economy. The mother country (if a Great Power) receives 100% bonus influence with its satellites.

Formable countries can still be formed by influencing a puppet nation even if the forming nation is not the liege. This can be used to "steal" other nations' puppets by forming countries. The liege cannot do anything to prevent the formation. This is typical for North German Federation North German Federation and Holstein Holstein. If one intends to form a country where one's puppet is needed, is it NOT enough to be the liege. The only way is putting it in one's sphere of influence.

Dominions

Dominions are countries that are released from colonial regions. A dominion gets ownership of and cores on all colonies and protectorates in a contiguous area, one of which becomes the capital and gives it its name and primary culture (it also accepts its overlord's primary and accepted cultures). It is civilized and has its overlord's technology and government type, but no reforms. The colonial points that the overlord was spending on upkeep are refunded. Dominions are therefore useful to free up colonial power for colonial competition and allow factories to be built in colonial areas (though since they tend to have low literacy, factories will not be very productive).

中国

China China starts with its own special kind of satellites called substates. They act as very loyal puppets as long as China is an uncivilized nation and will be inherited after China westernizes. They join wars that China enters as an ally, and provide military access to both sides. That is however not the case during the civil war between China and Heavenly Kingdom 太平天国. The substates include Yunnan Yunnan and Qinghai Qinghai. If the substate westernizes before China, it will automatically break free.
