A Minister is a government leader capable of filling one of the ten ministerial positions within the government. Ministers of the current and other governments may be viewed under the Diplomacy Tab in the game. Ministers are individuals, usually historical, and are specific per country. Each minister can only fulfill certain roles, and has a trait that indicates his impact upon the country he serves. Ministers have an ideology which helps determine which ministers are placed in power when the government changes, as well as affecting their loyalty to certain governments. Most ministers have a net positive effect on the country, though each in a different area. A few have a net negative effect. As well as serving ministers, there will be alternatives available for a player to choose from for most posts.

Ministerial posts Edit

There are ten ministerial posts to be filled in each government:

  1. The Head of State is the most prominent and usually most powerful member of the government. Often a king or dictator in autocratic governments, or the elected head of state in democracies, traits can vary widely and effect the country significantly. The player may not change the Head of State directly, but instead, changes occur as a result of coups, elections, or changes in government type.
  2. The Head of Government is the administrator of the government and is often the right-hand man of the Head of State. In certain governments he holds more power than others. Heads of Government come from all walks and therefore may affect their country in all manner of ways. Like the Head of State, he only changes under certain conditions.
  3. The Foreign Minister is the person in charge of the country's diplomatic relations. His traits will affect the costs of various political operations, reflecting his personality.
  4. The Minister of Armament is the person in charge of keeping the country's economy and industry going, and in particular for developing the military-industrial complex. Some may boost industrial production in general while others provide a boost to particular areas of production and research.
  5. The Minister of Security is the person in charge of law and order as well as counter-espionage within the country. He usually has an impact on the country's productivity and especially upon the use of occupied territory.
  6. The Minister of Intelligence runs the country's intelligence services. Depending on the person's specialty, the country will gain bonuses to covert activities, production, research, or battlefield intelligence.
  7. The Chief of Staff is the overall chief of the country's military forces and general staff. His personality will affect military units of all services.
  8. The Chief of the Army is the commander of the country's land forces most will focus on a group of unit types, offering them bonuses in combat and for production.
  9. The Chief of the Navy is the commander of the country's naval forces and like the army's commander specializes in certain types of units.
  10. The Chief of the Air Force is like the above army and navy commanders, but for the air forces of the country.

All but the first two positions can be changed at will by the country's player, provided alternate ministers are available to fill the post. Doing so creates a small (1-2%) increase in dissent, so it is usually not wise to change them wily-nilly. However, especially in countries where the starting cabinet is rather poor, it is important to promote good ministers that fit with the country's strategy, despite the instability it causes temporarily.
