Culture

Each POP in Victoria II has a culture which defines what nationality the POP has. Every country has a primary culture and sometimes one or more accepted cultures. POPs that are part of the primary culture of their nation are more likely to be in favour of the residency citizenship policy, while accepted cultures more likely to be in favour of limited citizenship and non-accepted cultures more in favour of full citizenship.

POPs that aren't members of a nation's accepted cultures cannot become guards and are less likely to be promoted to Capitalists.

Cultural Assimilation

Cultural assimilation is the process in which POPs of non-accepted cultures change to the primary or accepted culture of the nation.

Cultural assimilation is similar to promotion, demotion and immigration except that they do not have a direction roll. Instead, they automatically assimilate to the nation's primary or accepted culture if POPs of those cultures exist in the province. For example, Italian POPs living in New York City will assimilate to the Yankee culture, however Italian POPs in New Orleans will assimilate to the Dixie culture.
