ADMINISTRATIVE EFFICIENCY: GROWTH AND ITS STRAINS
Today, we are going to talk a bit about Administration Efficiency.
Administration Efficiency represents the country’s ability to administer its possessions, and how such possessions and their management strain it.
At a gameplay level, it places a special price on a country's geographical growth just for its own sake.
The player needs to address this problem by defining some long- and short-term strategies, which means, like everything in Magna Mundi, compromises.
At its heart, Administration Efficiency is based on two concepts: Administrative Need and Administrative Capabilities. It’s the relation between both that gives us the Administration Efficiency you see displayed on the interface.
Administrative Need: This concept represents the burden that effectively administering the possessions places on the State. It is modified by the number of provinces being administered, the weight of which depends on additional factors.
• Factors to calculate Administrative Need (AN):
Base Administrative Need
Each Province owned
Each non-Core, non-Colony owned
Each Colony owned
Each 1% of local revolt risk
Administrative Capabilities: This concept represents the ability of the State to effectively administer its possessions. It is affected by various factors that either contribute to or detract from it.
• Factors affecting Administrative Capabilities (AC):
Each ADM point
All Merchant Republics
All Tier 3 Governments
All Tier 2 Governments
All Tier 1 Governments
Administrative National Ethos
Religious National Ethos
Social National Ethos
(*) – Viceroys remove the extra cost of colonies.
Calculating Administrative Efficiency rate: The rate of Administrative Efficiency is determined by the result of Administrative Need divided by Administrative Capabilities (AN/AC). It is a powerful modifier that can make country management far smoother or much, much harder.
• Levels of Administration Efficiency
In the end, when the player places the mouse cursor over the Administration Efficiency icon, he sees all of the information in a single tooltip.
