    After a veeeeeeerrrrrryyyyyyy long war against Austria (as Prussia) I finally got them down to be a 2nd power. Since I already had conquered 60% of their land it was really easy to get them into my sphere (by CB add to sphere). But now, after my game crashed and I had to load an old auto safe, they aren't in my sphere anymore? :OOOOOO

    As Columbia, when I add countries like Brazil, Chile, Argentina to my sphere, my economy tanks like crazy. I'll go from +30 to -100, and no matter how much I raise taxes, my income continues to plummet. What are some likely causes and how do I stabilize the situation?

    This why you should save during wars...if you get stuck and want to reload you need the plentiful saves. I also set auto save to every year, though every six months might be better.

    The only thing I can think of is that the new sphere nations have RGOs that go into your market and compete with the RGO resources in your country. This may decrease your tax base because the prices drop because all of a sudden, say coffee, becomes way more plentiful. Are you getting unemployment from your RGOs also? If so this might be the problem. Other than that I really can't hazard a guess why.

    To force promotion of soldier pops is it better to have high or low tax on the poor?

    I started up a game as Oranje, and I have 0 Infamy and 200 Relations with Transvaal, and neither of us have allies, they refuse to ally with me. Is there some sort of reason for this, or are they just jerks?

    Check and see if they they are in the UK sphere of influence. If that's the case then they probably won't ally with you. You'll have to ally with the UK instead. Sometimes if they have friendly relations with a GP they get be jerks too.

    It might be because you were used to importing a lot of goods from these countries and getting a lot of money in tariffs. Sphere countries don't get tariffs (this is technically a good thing because it makes your industries run at higher profit). If possible compare a save from before and a save after and see where the income changes. It could be in tariffs, it could also be in military/stockpile spending (if goods previously unavailable to you became available because your sphereling is selling them and you get first dibs). Those are the likely culprits. If it were what brycef suggested in an overabundance of resources that would probably be a slower transition, and would lead to faster industrialization as farmers head to the factories. Generally when this happens tax income increases as craftsmen often make more money than RGO workers.

    That sounds more logical than what I proposed.

    Here is my situation: I and my ally have a truce with country X. I DoW a nation which X is allied with. Now, X is allowed to "break" the truce and answer the call of my target, which is inconvenient but fine, however, my ally is not allowed into the war even though it has no truce with the target of the DoW? Does my ally know that X will answer the call? Does it wait to find out? My alliance is not broken, fwiw.

    Just to make sure: Are you certain you checked the "call allies" box as you sent the declaration of war?
