Thread: Incorporating Iceland and Greenland as state

    Incorporating Iceland and Greenland as state

    Hi all,

    I formed Scandinavia as sweden, and got the danish colonies. I got the 1% of bureaucrats, but incorporating iceland/greenland costs a whopping 1143 colonial power! anybody any idea why that is? it's not like those polar regions are heaviliy populated (those 4 provinces ranging from 200 to 20k inhabitants)

    thanks in advance!

    I think the state is placed in the North America. That means that it's on a different region and gets a multiplier to the colonial power cost based on that. Not sure though.

    Would be odd if iceland were a part of America if you'd ask me, but even if it was 1143 Colonial power is ridiculous for those pretty empty regions

    I think Iceland's considered a part of North America since Iceland and Greenland are both in the same region (Iceland and Greenland) and that region's considered part of North America. So you'd end up either with Iceland being a part of America or Greenland a part of Europe; they probably went with the former since Iceland's smaller.

    I think you have the two mixed up, Greenland is apart of North America and Iceland is apart of europe

    He's talking about in-game. He's saying that Iceland and Greenland are in the same region in-game thus you either have to make both North American or European. He's not saying that Greenland is part of Europe and Iceland is part of North America.

    No you can make them states; you just need to build/upgrade your ports so that you have enough colonial points to make them into states.

    And your navy is a big part of that as well
