So I started a game as Belgium, where I encouraged Liberals for a while, and then when they got out of hand I began encouraging a lot more Conservatives/reactionaries.
The problem is though, is that its 1856, and my people are already demanding Universal suffrage!?! The fact that Universal suffrage did not come to even the most advanced liberal democracies until the end of the century, points to the fact that political reform demands are outrageous! Right after I pass the Weighted Universal reform, the people are already demanding Universal voting!? They haven't asked for ANYTHING else, except for change in Suffrage (no social reforms either). Something needs to change, I'm not sure what, but I'm sure the mod developers would know what to change.
Also is it just me, or are there WAYY too many Communist/Fascist rebellions succeeding, way too early. Heck the first Communist revolution was in Russia 1917 and the first fascist government was in Italy (where it was founded) in 1920. In PDM though you have Fascist and Communist government way before the turn of the century. Personally Fascism should only appear as a political party until after the Great War has finished, or when Great Wars have been activated. Perhaps 1900 should allow Communist and Fascist political parties to begin pushing for demands.
