Relation

Relations indicate how well two countries like each other. This is expressed as a numerical value which ranges from -200 to +200, where -200 means they hate you and +200 means they love you. A country's relations with another determine how likely it is to hurt or help the other country, such as by entering military alliances with it or joining wars against it.

It is not possible to fabricate a Casus belli against another nation if the relation is greater than 100. The higher the relations, the easier it is for a great power to influence another country.

One can improve the relation between your nation and another. The relationship value between Denmark and Holstein can be seen next to the name Denmark

Many decisions and events require two nations to have above or below a certain relation threshold like Attack The Laagers requiring Zulu Zulu to have below 100 with Transvaal Transvaal and Oranje Oranje
