This is mystifying me.
Several times Ive had spies in countries on a 'support our party' mission.
Often - even though party support is very low - the option to attempt a coup is available. However this has never been succesful - I assume becasue of the low party support.
However, in coutnries where party support is much highter - sometimes even the biggest party, the coups button is greyed out.
As soviets I had managed to get 7 spies into Romania supporting our party. The communist party got to over 40% popularity, but the government was almost unformlly fascist or parternal autocrat (apart from 1 communist foriegn minister). I was also influenceing Romania towards the USSR and it was about halfway accrosso to the comitern corner.
However the 'attempt coup' button remained greyed out.
Then they suddenly joined the Axis out of the blue.
(I had been refraining from claiming Basarabia to keep the romanians sweet, but now took it out of spite)
So what gives? Anyone managed a succesful coup?
