I have the same problem, and I am using Manjaro, but installing the pipewire-alsa package does not fix the issue. It seems that CK3 makes no sound output at all, as it does not appear in my KDE Audio Volume menu.

yeah enabling alsa support didn't fix it whatsoever, it seems like modern paradox games like imperator and ck3 make no effort at all to spawn audio streams with pipewire (even though it provides full jack, alsa and pulse integration).
