    I can't get any bureaucrats

    I've had admin spending at maximum since 1836. It's 1903 and I still have 0 bureaucrats in many of my provinces, like Michigan which is still in colony status. What am I doing wrong?

    Use national focus to encourage bureaucrats.

    National focuses are quite important for raising bureaucrats, as well as giving them good wages and such on the budget screen. Remember to also keep their taxes at a level that keeps them out of poverty, but not too wealthy; you don't want them getting better jobs as clergy or officers.

    I failed to mention that I've had that national focus on Michigan for years and still no bureaucrats. Their wages as far as I know can only be managed using the administrative budget slider and as I said that's been maxed the entire time. I've also had taxes very low on the middle class (like 10% I think).

    Very low taxes on the middle class and maximum wages for bureaucrats is a bad thing for keeping bureaucrats. If they're too wealthy they'll promote into other professions.

    Your poor pops also need to have enough money to promote to bureaucrats.

    Ok, I'll try lowering taxes on the poor and raising taxes on the middle class and see how that works. Thanks. Any other way I can try to make sure my poor have enough money to promote? Other than making sure they aren't unemployed?

    Increasing your tax efficiency gives you more wiggle-room to shift your tax burden and still maintain a positive income. Also, make sure your lower class pops can actually buy the goods they want; you may have to sphere or conquer some territory if you can't obtain enough.

    This thread reminds me that we need a Toledo War event. Just a little secession of the two and have their soldier pops duke it out. I wonder if you could mod that.
