Seriously. What am I doing wrong? Ive got +2 Stab, I'm making about 100 Ducats a month, and have only about 20% over-extension going on and I'm getting endless rebellions occurring. I think I'm going down in history as the largest mass murder despot of all time. I've butchered hundreds of thousand of British Peasants in my colonies.
I've got such a potent rebel squooshing force that when the English Civil war launched, I Crushed Oliver Cromwell (and his 32 regiments) without realizing, on my way up to Scotland to squoosh some nationalist (and their 35 regiments).
It's really annoying, and is sapping my manpower. At one point, over a 20 year period (admittedly when my over extension was high) I spent my whole 85k manpower pool dealing with rebels.
And what the hell, it took 10 years for my colony to grow up to 1000 people and become self sustaining, but 2 months after it did, I get a 25k peseant revolt. Where did those other 24k people come from?
Is there some other factor that can affect rebels to make them spawn like this? I'm an absolute monarchy, 95% religious unity, and almost 100 cultural unity. I don;t get it!
