A '''satellite''' state, also known as a '''puppet''', '''vassal''', is a country which allows another nation to represent it on the international stage. The satellite state remains independent in terms of government, economics and other internal affairs, but may not sign treaties or declare war on foreign countries. The "mother country" retains special privileges, being able to sign defensive alliances and military access treaties with vassal state.
Also if the mother country is at war then the satellite(s) or dominion(s) will automatically be at war with the enemy too.
However, [[great powers]] can still attempt to place the satellite state within their [[sphere of influence]] or, if the satellite's government allows it, invest in the local economy. The mother country receives a substantial influence bonus to combat such attempts.
