I think everyone can agree one of the best parts of a new patch is seeing which nations get their own NI sets. And one of the most frequent topics in the suggestion forums are suggestions for said new NIs. Unfortunately, they can be difficult to find, and can fade away pretty quickly. Hence this thread.

As I recall there used to be a thread similar for this a while back, but since I can't seem to find it, I've created this; a new NI compilation thread, where I'll try to upload any suggested NI sets I see for nations that do not yet have them for convenience's sake. If there is an Idea Set of yours for a nation that does not have an unique NI set, or if I missed one of yours, please; feel free to post.

Edit: Also, please try to keep it restrained to only tags that are already in game or have been confirmed are being added.


At the request of @Trin Tragula, I’ve composed an index of this thread that I’ll do my best to keep updated. I’ve separated it into NIs for countries that already have them (which may or may not have been influenced by the ones in this thread) and ones that don’t, and then alphabetized them for ease of access. Author will be put in parenthesis.

This very belated update to the list was courtesy of @Aquamancer, who did the legwork in updating the thread to match the current situation of NIs ingame, as well as to make it more visually appealing.

This thread is more than 5 months old.

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

Kasanjean Ideas
(For Kasanje in the Kongo region)


Kasanjean Traditions
+15% Shock Damage
+25% National Manpower Modifier


1)Raiders

-10% Land maintenance modifier
Some say that a soldier should by payed by the nation for which he serves. But we are raiders, we steal and pillage instead of producing, and we prefer to let soldiers pay themselves with what they can loot.

2)Fear of the Imbangala
-5 Years of Separatism
We are known for our ruthlessness against our enemies. This means that our subjects will think twice before trying to revolt.
3)Fierce Warriors
+10% Morale of Armies
War is an essential part of our society. Our warbands are feared across all of Kongo, and our warriors have many times proven to be brave...and merciless.

4)Strenghten Royal Authority

-2 National Unrest
If we want to expand, we need to set up a competent administration, directly obeying to our King's orders and enforcing his will on our subjects.

5)Towards a Settled Society
+10% Goods Produced Modifier
Our previoulsy nomad society is now settling and forming cities and producing goods instead of stealing them. This is a remarkable boost to our economy.

6)Reforming the Imbangala Army

+5% Discipline
-10% Military advisor cost
Times are changing, foreigners are heard to be coming from the West, with unknown technologies and advanced armies. We will take their tactics as an example for our own army, so that it can gain the upper hand in battle.

7)News from the West
-10% Institution embracement cost
We need to introduce innovations, such as the printing press, gunpowder weapons and literacy in our society, to make it keep the pace of the Western one.

Ruandan ideas
Before I start three little caveats
1st I'll be using the spelling Rwanda for the modern nation and Ruanda for the in-game tag
2nd I know this is not the format you're supposed to post in this thread as its not exclusively a suggestion but more mixed with AAR and modern military discussion. I decided to include these elements to explain my reasoning and will include the ideas without my paragraphs of explanation at the end. In case a post like this is against the rule of this thread I will rescing it and post it again in a more fitting format.
3rd the timeframe of the events I'm referencing obviously doesn't really fit into eu4 but I do believe Rwanda's 20th century feats are in spirit of the people not in the spirit of the time

Last month I read a lot about the Kongo wars and the Rwandan genocide (highly interesting topics especially from a military point of view) and it inspired me to do a Ruanda playthrough. Ruanda is in the horrible interlacustrine idea group and apart from a few ideas there you might as well play without it. (I'm never going to get Victorian three because one Central African minor game is enough)
My playthrough as well as what I've read about Rwanda's involvement in the Congo war inspired me to design a new idea group focussed on my playstyle and the actual Rwanda's history. While I initially tried to keep it balanced and understated I came upon the ridiculous military NIs of Butua. If one African tag can have infantry combat ability, morale and discipline in one idea set then my Ruanda can certainly have an single ridiculous idea. But I'll get to that. So without further ado, here's my draft for ruandan ideas:

Traditions:
-10% reduced attrition (the traditions of the interlacustrine group include +1 attritions and having Ruanda start with a counter idea would imply them saying "we know your terrain, we have the same one, it won't stop us,,
+20% infantry combat ability (that's the big one. 20% is an idea that currently is only present on the ideas of Prussia and Sweden. So why should Ruanda have it? In recent history Rwanda has been an absolute military powerhouse. They are the only nation in the world that still gets is way by being a military hegemon. Despite its small size and rough terrain the government provides an uncommon level of stability and quality of life compared to Africa. At the same time it is a defacto military government. Between the Rwandan genocide and the first Congo war a foreign-based army conquered Ruanda and ruled since then. It's a military that acquirered a state. It's the Prussia of Africa. And while it's the wrong timeframe I think this could be reflected in eu4. A while ago I would have been against such a stat for an African country that's no endgame tag but Butua is even more overpowered. A nation with morale and discipline added to the infantry combat modifier will still beat Ruanda. Same goes for Kongo, mutapa and Kilwa with their better economy. The Interlacustrine idea group currently has +10% infantry combat ability which is one of their few ideas that wasn't useless and imo Ruanda should distinguish itself from its neighbors by at least 5%)

-10% liberty desire in subjects (after the first Congo war Rwanda basically had the Congo as a vassal. A nation that has 6 times the population and 100 times the land. A Ruanda campaign will also include lots of vassal usage at the time you get to your first real idea. After conquering the great Great lakes you're surrounded by colonizable land but no chance to expand. So what I did was to declare a no cb war on a Congolese tag to vassalize them, press their claims and Diplo annex them)

+10/15% army movement speed (by the time you'll get to your second idea you'll be fighting in the Congo regions against nations probably much bigger than you. You'll have to outmanoeuvre them and reach important places faster than they do to conserve your sparse manpower. It's also a reference to the karabebe blitz in the second Congo war in which 500 elite Rwandan infanterists flew over the entire Congo to attack the much stronger nation from behind. Congo lost one of its biggest airbases, sea access and 60% of its electricity in one swift surprise attack. With movement speed you can do the same while playing Ruanda)

-15/20% infantry cost (Ruanda is a poor tag. They cannot afford meta cannon armies or even a lot of cavalry. Real life Rwanda had the same problem but what they could afford was infantry and so they focussed their efforts on foot troops. And it payed off. While its neighbors were buying more and more armour they couldn't maintain it or reproduce spare parts. The Rwandan infantry then beat the Ugandan armour decisively without having any tanks themselves. Maybe Ruanda can beat cannon equipped armies as well just using infantry but for that they will need a little discount)

Land leader +1 maneuver (this could be any additional pip for land leaders. As with many great nations Rwanda's forces were only as successful as they were because they had impeccable leadership. I could make a point about shock, fire or siege as well but I think maneuver best lends itself to the float-like-a-butterly-sting-like-a-bee theme I'm trying to go with. Leading nimble and light troops without heavy support through the Savannahs as well as fighting far from home without supply has made both RL Rwandan and in-game Ruandan generals experts at supply and maneuver)

-10% fire damage taken (after subjugating the Congo Rwanda will have to face the Europeans and their superior weapons. And like every challenge before they will adapt. If you're fast and stealthy you will be hit less and in a true nation of warriors as long as you're not dead you can pick up a spear and charge again)

+1 Diplo rep/+1 relations (I'm not entirely sure which one to take here. The idea in spirit is a reference to the giant coalition formed by Rwanda against Zaire in the first Congo war. Considering the size of the coalition additional relations would fit but in my campaign they would have been completely useless as in the midgame my only relations were my vassals. Therefore I think Diplo relation is a more fitting bonus. It would have helped me a lot in my strategy of vassal feeding - vassal integration. Also: to get a big coalition going you need to have quite the competent diplomats)

+33% spy network construction (in my run i did have a constant lack of monarch points due to bad kings (at least until I rolled a 5/4/6 ruler in the late game who grew to be 70) and therefore I couldn't really go for a rather unessential idea group such es espionage. When I had consolidated all of subsaharan Africa and therefore lost the drive to conquer I went with espionage to annoy the European great powers by spawning rebels whenever I could. This proved to be quite a lot of fun and I wish I could have done this even more frequently. That's why this idea is here. Also because Rwanda got their CBs for both Congo wars by funding rebel groups in their neighbor)

Ambition:
+5% goods produced (I was first thinking about putting a technology discount on here to symbolise Ruanda catching up with the west but I think goods produced works better as at this point you'll get most of your money by production. Africa has amazing trade goods and +5% matters a lot when you need any piece of ivory to build a new manufactory and later universities. Although I personally failed to spawn manufactories and the enlightenment in my country it should be absolutely feasible with the money you make)

Thank you for making it this far and as promised at the start here is a simple overview of the ideas

-10% reduced attrition
+20% infantry combat ability

-10% liberty desire in subjects
+10 or 15% army movement speed
-15/20% infantry cost
+1 land leader maneuver
-10% fire damage taken
+1 Diplo rep
+33% spy network construction

+5% goods produced

Duchy of Madeira Island

Traditions (with a bit of history to justify them)
Colonial Range 20%

Administrated by the Military Order of Christ until the Reign of D.Manuel I, Madeira became an important outpost during the Age of Discovery. Even after being colonised, Captains of the Order would still participate in raids against Morocco, and exploration down the coast of Africa.

Álvaro Fernandes was a 15th-century Portuguese slave-trader and explorer from Madeira, in the service of Henry the Navigator. He captained two important expeditions (in 1445 and 1446), which expanded the limit of the Portuguese discovery of the West African coast, probably as far as the northern borderlands of modern Guinea-Bissau. Álvaro Fernandes's farthest point (approximately Cape Roxo) would not be surpassed for ten years, until the voyage of Alvise Cadamosto in 1456.

António de Abreu (c. 1480 – c. 1514) was a 16th-century Portuguese navigator and naval officer. He participated under the command of Afonso de Albuquerque in the conquest of Ormus in 1507 and Malacca in 1511, where he got injured. Departing from Malacca in November 1511 with four ships, in an exploratory voyage to the 'Spice Islands' of Maluku, he led the first European expedition to reach Timor and the Banda Islands, in Indonesia, in 1512.

, volta do mar largo, or volta do largo (the phrase in Portuguese means literally turn of the sea but also return from the sea) is a navigational technique perfected by Portuguese navigators during the Age of Discovery in the late fifteenth century, using the dependable phenomenon of the great permanent wind circle, the North Atlantic Gyre. This was a major step in the history of navigation, when an understanding of winds in the age of sail was crucial to success: the European sea empires would never have been established had the Europeans not figured out how the trade winds worked.

The volta do mar was a sailing technique discovered in successfully returning from the Atlantic islands, where the pilot first had to sail far to the west in order to catch usable following winds, and return to Europe. This was a counter-intuitive sailing direction, as it required the pilot to steer in a direction that was perpendicular to the ports of Portugal. Lack of this information may have doomed the thirteenth-century expedition of Vandino and Ugolino Vivaldi, who were headed towards the Canary Islands (as yet unknown by the Europeans) and were lost; once there, without understanding the Atlantic gyre and the volta do mar, they would have been unable to beat upwind to the Strait of Gibraltar and home. Discovering this technique was crucial for returning from future discoveries; for example Christopher Columbus would never have returned from the Americas without applying the volta do mar by sailing northwards from the Caribbean through the Horse Latitudes to catch the prevailing mid-latitude westerlies.

Some years before his voyages across the Atlantic, Christopher Columbus, visited Madeira. It is generally accepted that he was born in Genoa, Italy as Cristoforo Colon. In Portugal it has been claimed that he was born in that country, as Salvador Fernandes Zarco but this is disputed.

Columbus married the daughter of a plantation owner on Porto Santo and so was well aware of the profits to be made. He also understood the necessary growing conditions for sugar and the navigational technique known as the Volta do mar.

Henry the Navigator ordered commercial crops to be planted so that the islands could be profitable.These specialised plants, and their associated industrial technology, created one of the major revolutions on the islands and fuelled Portuguese industry. Following the introduction of the first water-driven sugar mill on Madeira, sugar production increased to over 6,000 arrobas (an arroba was equal to 11 to 12 kilograms) by 1455, using advisers from Sicily and financed by Genoese capital. (Genoa acted as an integral part of the island economy until the 17th century.) The accessibility of Madeira attracted Genoese and Flemish traders, who were keen to bypass Venetian monopolies.

"By 1480 Antwerp had some seventy ships engaged in the Madeira sugar trade, with the refining and distribution concentrated in Antwerp. By the 1490s Madeira had overtaken Cyprus as a producer of sugar."

Sugarcane production was the primary engine of the island's economy, increasing the demand for labour. African slaves were used during portions of the island's history to cultivate sugar cane, and the proportion of imported slaves reached 10% of the total population of Madeira by the 16th century.

The first alfandega (customs) of Funchal was determinated by D. Beatriz, then administrator of the Order of Christ in 15th of March of 1477.

Construction Cost -20%

During the second half of the 15th century, the sugar industry expanded significantly along the southern coast, from Machico until Fajã da Ovelha, making Funchal the most important industrial centre of the industry. By the end of the century, fronting the Order of Christ, D. Manuel, Duke of Beja, expanded the support of the local community; he ordered the construction of the administrative Paços do Concelho and the Paços dos Tabeliães (completed in 1491), raised the construction of a church (began in 1493 and later raised to cathedral in 1514), and finally the construction of a hospital and customs-house in the village. In 1508, it was elevated to the status of city by King Manuel I of Portugal, and in 1514 (on completion of the Sé Cathedral) the bishopric was headquartered in Funchal.

Fort Defense +10%

The island, and Funchal specifically, were vulnerable to privateer and pirate attacks. In September 1566, French corsairs under the command of Bertrand de Montluc, a gentleman in the court of Charles IX of France and second-son of Field Marshal Blaise de Montluc departed from Bordeaux with a force of 1200 men, on a small fleet of three main ships and eight support craft. The armada sacked Porto Santo. When the news was relayed to the settlements on Madeira and the villas of Machico and Santa Cruz the citizenry armed themselves for the inevitable. In Funchal, the governor, Francisco de Sales Gonçalves Zarco da Câmara, did not take any action that could be construed as hostile. Meanwhile, the armada anchored off the beach of Formosa, disembarked a contingent of 800 men that marched towards the city in three columns, encountering no resistance until the main bridge in São Paulo. At the bridge the privateers encountered a force from the small fort, with a few small-caliber pieces, which were quickly routed in confusion. At the road near Carreira, the attackers were confronted by a small group of Franciscan friars, who were quickly dispatched. Funchal's fortifications were finally assaulted by land, where its defense was thin; the defenders could not even reposition many of the cannons directed towards the sea. The city suffered a violent sack that lasted fifteen days, after which little remained.

The following year, the military architect Mateus Fernandes III was sent to Funchal in order to completely modify the defensive system of the city. Evidence of the work produced by this architect was published in the "Mapa de Mateus Fernandes" (1573), considered to be the oldest plan of the island of Funchal. The document identifies the major defenses of the city, which included a large fortification in the area around the dyke in Pena.

Brazil has, throughout history, fascinated islanders, who have been linked to its construction process since the beginning. In the centuries. XVI and XVII, the presence of Madeirans, from the north to the south of Brazil, stood out, as farmers and sugar mill masters, who were pioneers in the definition of export agriculture based on sugar cane, employees, who consolidated the local institutions and royals, and military, who fought at different times for Portuguese sovereignty. The strong impact of Madeira in the early days of Brazilian society led Evaldo Cabral de Mello to define the captaincy of S. Vicente as “Nova Madeira”. The beginnings of the colonization of Brazil are linked to Madeira, and a bridge was established between the island and the colonies of Brazil. The first sugar mills were built by Madeiran masters. In Bahia, Pernambuco and Paraíba we find many Madeirans linked to the sugar harvest, as technicians or mill owners. Madeira also served as a model in the colonization process of Brazil, namely with regard to the hereditary captaincy and sesmarias regimes, and also in the administrative and religious apparatus, as Funchal was the seat of archbishopric between 1514 and 1533, with jurisdiction over the Brazil. Brazil's economic progress has attracted the attention of the Madeiran bourgeoisie, who emigrated to that colony in search of its wealth, in particular sugar. In this sense, there are several Brazilian families with Madeiran origin.

Another motivation for the movement of Madeirans to Brazil stemmed from the need to defend that territory. The liberation of Maranhão, in 1642, was the work of António Teixeira Mello, while in Pernambuco resistance to the Dutch was organized since 1645 by João Fernandes Vieira. Thus, the defense of Portuguese sovereignty was also achieved by sending companies of soldiers from the island. The sending of Madeiran soldiers to Brazil continued throughout the century XVII, in this way, we have the departure, in 1631, of João de Freitas da Silva; in 1632, by Francisco de Bettencourt and Sá; in 1646, by Francisco Figueiroa and, in 1658, by D. Jorge Henriques with 600 men. In 1696, 100 soldiers were to the state of Maranhão.


Merchant Trade Power +10
Since the 17th century, Madeira's most important product has been its wine.
Madeira wine was perhaps the most popular luxury beverage in the colonial Western Hemisphere during the 17th and 18th centuries. The British Empire occupied Madeira as a result of the Napoleonic Wars, a friendly occupation which concluded in 1814 when the island was returned to Portugal, and the British did much to popularise Madeira wine.
Madeira was an important wine in the history of the United States of America. No wine-quality grapes were grown among the thirteen colonies,so imports were needed, with a great focus on Madeira. One of the major events on the road to the American revolution in which Madeira played a key role was the British seizure of John Hancock's sloop the Liberty on May 9, 1768. Hancock's boat was seized after he had unloaded a cargo of 25 pipes (3,150 gallons) of Madeira, and a dispute arose over import duties. The seizure of the Liberty caused riots to erupt among the people of Boston.

Madeira was a favorite of Thomas Jefferson, and it was used to toast the Declaration of Independence. George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, Benjamin Franklin and John Adams are also said to have appreciated the qualities of Madeira. The wine was mentioned in Benjamin Franklin's autobiography. On one occasion, Adams wrote to his wife, Abigail, of the great quantities of Madeira he consumed while a Massachusetts delegate to the Continental Congress. A bottle of Madeira was used by visiting Captain James Server to christen the USS Constitution in 1797. Chief Justice John Marshall was also known to appreciate Madeira, as were his cohorts on the early U.S. Supreme Court.

Domestic Trade Power +15%

Throughout the eighteenth century the most important trade routes continued to go through Madeira. English fleet, both commercial and war, docked there on the way to the West Indies. And the same happened with the travel of scientists and explorers. Captain Cook and Charles Darwin spent time there. In 1815 Napoleon passed in Madeira on the way to exile. The ship docked in Funchal bay to collect supplies and Madeira wine.




Ambition:
Yearly Prestige +1

In the nineteenth century Russia became the main market of Madeira wine. Also in the history of North America no other wine had much prestige as the “Madeira Wine”, which for nearly 200 years dominated the halls, banquets and receptions.
During the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Madeira became one of the first tourist destinations in Europe, mostly visited by European aristocracy of the time. The good air of the island and its landscapes were recommended by doctors to patients undermined by tuberculosis. Many went there to convalesce.

Starting leader could be Joao Goncalves Zarco, the explorer who found the island.
The flag could be white with the red cross of the Order of Christ.
( Personally i would add the Galician model which is my favourite and Iberian Ships. I do use the island modern colours for the flag with the white Knights of Malta cross.)
All the values are achived using EU IV costum nation table.

National Ideas:

1) May Revolution:
+1 Prestige

The May Revolution (Spanish: Revolución de Mayo) was a week-long series of events that took place from May 18 to 25, 1810, in Buenos Aires, capital of the Viceroyality of the Rio de la Plata. This Spanish colony included roughly the territories of present-day Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay, and parts of Brazil. The result was the removal of Viceroy Baltasar Hidalgo de Cisneros and the establishment of a local government, the Primera Junta (First Junta), on May 25. It was the first successful revolution in the South American Independence process, and was an epicenter for the revolutionary spirit in the region.


2) The Patricios and the Regiment of Mounted Grenadiers:
+5% Infantry combat ability
+5% Cavalry combat abilty

The Patricios regiment was formed as the Legión Patricia ("Patricians' Legion) from inhabitants of Buenos Aires in 1806 to fight against the British invasions of the Río de la Plata. Among some of its first members it included a woman, the Alférez (approximately, second lieutenant) Manuela Pedraza, one of the heroes of the Defense of Buenos Aires in 1806. The regiment therefore existed prior to Argentine independence. Their first commander was Cornelio Saavedra. The regiment also fought in the May Revolution, the Cisplatine War, the Platine War, the Paraguayan War.

The Regiment of Mounted Grenadiers (Spanish: Regimiento de Granaderos a Caballo) is the name of two Argentine Army regiments of two different time periods: a historic regiment that operated from 1812 to 1826. The first Regiment of Mounted Grenadiers, formed in 1812, fought in the Argentine War of Independence under José de San Martín, and the Cisplatine War, subsequently becoming the Presidential bodyguard in 1825.


3) Buenos Aires Burghers:
+1 Merchant

From its earliest days, Buenos Aires depended primarily on trade. During most of the 17th century, Spanish ships were menaced by pirates, so they developed a complex system where ships with military protection were dispatched to Central America in a convoy from Seville the only port allowed to trade with the colonies, to Lima, Peru and from it to the inner cities of the viceroyalty. Because of this, products took a very long time to arrive in Buenos Aires, and the taxes generated by the transport made them prohibitive. This scheme frustrated the traders of Buenos Aires, and a thriving informal yet accepted by the authorities contraband industry developed inside the colonies and with the Portuguese. This also instilled a deep resentment among porteños towards the Spanish authorities.


4) Repel English invasions:
+5% army moral
+10% fort defense

The British invasions of the River Plate were a series of unsuccessful British attempts to seize control of areas in the Spanish colonial Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata that were located around the Río de la Plata in South America — in present-day Argentina and Uruguay. The invasions took place between 1806 and 1807, as part of the Napoleonic Wars, when Spain was an ally of Napoleonic France.


5) Río de la Plata:
+10% Trade efficiency
+5% global trade power

The biggest river in the world and a vital trade route to the inner markets of South America. The region experience various conflicts after the independence of the former Spanish and Portuguese colonies in the first quarter of the 19th century. Interests in the territories and the navigation rights over the Platine region played a major role in many armed conflicts throughout the century.


6) La Pampa Húmeda:
10% National manpower
+5% goods produced

Being fertile and close to the Atlantic Ocean, the Humid Pampa was one of the preferred destinations of millions of immigrants, who were mostly Italian, French and Spanish, but also German and other Europeans. Because the weather allowed for two annual harvests, the lands started being heavily used for agriculture, which made Argentina a major agricultural producer (the self-styled "Granary of the World").


7) Vuelta de Obligado:
+1 diplomatic reputation

The naval Battle of Vuelta de Obligado took place on the waters of the Paraná River on 20 November 1845, between the Argentine Confederation, under the leadership of Juan Manuel de Rosas, and a combined Anglo-French fleet. The action was part of the larger Anglo-French blockade of the Río de la Plata. Although the attacking forces broke through the Argentine naval defenses and overran the land defenses, the battle proved that foreign ships could not safely navigate Argentine internal waters against its government's wishes. The battle also changed political feeling in South America, increasing support for Rosas and his government.


8) Desert campaign:
+1 Colonist

The Desert Campaign (1833–34) was a military campaign in Argentina led by Juan Manuel de Rosas against the indigenous people of the southern Pampas and northern Patagonia. The campaign was later followed by the Conquest of the Desert, which took place a few decades after. In both opportunities the southern borders of the country were gratly expanded.

  • Westphalia
In addition, following changes in the past patches, some of the proposed national ideas have become outdated as they are due to the tag no longer existing, and as such, the proposed idea sets are probably no longer applicable for the renamed tags. Specifically, the following tags were renamed:
  • Alsace > Strasbourg
  • Kathiawar > Kutch
  • Kokkand > Ferghana
  • Malabar > Calicut
Furthermore, following the removal of Ravensburg from the game in the favour of Konstanz, there proposals for the ideas of Ravensburg are now kind of pointless, even if the tag is still in the game's code.

Finally, as of Patch 1.30.3, only 28 tags have generic ideas left as opposed to 31 in patch 1.23:

Scandinavia
Livonia
Karelia
Chile
Colombia
La Plata
Peru
Paraguay
United Central America

California
Florida
Cuba
Ferghana
Bukhara

Isfahan

Specification of the changes: Iceland, Gaeldom, Louisiana, Australia, Chernigov and Andalusia now have unique national ideas, while California, Florida and Cuba were added to the game without unique national ideas.

That is great to hear. That said, in case you're planning to use my research as the basis for the updating of the thread, I'd like to make a correction to my statements above. Louisiana didn't actually get national ideas: since they in-code have French primary culture, they are considered by the game to have French ducal national ideas as their default set of ideas. Same goes for Illinois and Haiti.

Finally, I also compiled a list of all the national ideas that are either shared by more than one nation, or are considered to use Group national ideas, in case you want to include that in your base post as well. After all, while the nations that share national ideas between one another aren't considered to have the Generic national ideas, these kind of nations tend to get unique national ideas over time, so it seemed reasonable to include the full list here.
