Just noticed that my Castile Vassal seems to have +10 unrest in all of its provinces owing to an undocumented (in the wiki anyway) "Aspiration for liberty". Might anyone know what it's about?

Also, I could use a reality check by prior world conquerors. Is 25-ish years enough to finish this one?

Sweden, Aragon, Castile, and Serbia are vassals. My intent is to vassalize GB and Japan. And maybe Ming. But there would still be ~6k-ish development left to core once that is done, most of it in colonial territory, and I'm suspicious that I'll have the material time to do so without me or my future CNs being overextended. Plus, they're not very good at converting provinces to Protestant. :p
The colonial dev is rarely an issue this late in the game. Just truce break as many times as needed to finish it all out. Police the colonial nations a bit and it won't matter how overextended they are. And since they won't match your quality, the rebels will be made of paper by comparison to your troops.
Provinces which start uncolonized at the beginning of the game don't add to overextension, which means in the Americas only Mexico and Peru can pose problems
