    Default Heavily Populated Regions

    Whats the largest single population you guys have seen? In my Prussian campaign (1775, I have Italy, France, Southern India, Spanish America and pretty much all the German states) I noticed the French region had 10 million people. The following turn it had dropped.. to 99.4 million. The 10m it was showing was supposed to represent 100 million it just missed a digit on the info bar.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    The other massive region I noticed was Bengal (I think) in Northeast India which had 65 million or so.

    It's weird how it went up to 100 million without me noticing. I mean, thats more than modern day France. Anyone else got any heavily populated regions, or heavily populated Frances'?

    I had 115 million Frenchies in France. You know, those French are great lovers.

    You know, I suspect that might be due to the French having a large province with lots of industry slots, which leads to more unhappiness, combined with maybe a hardcoded tendency to research enlightenment, and so they always have to have low taxes in France, encouraging population growth.

    That plus 2 of the 4 ports are fishery's, and the good farm land there. In both of my campaigns when I took France, it had 111 million people.
    I shouldn't have to live in a world where all the good points are horrible ones.

    Whenever I capture France they always have four Seminaries. And you know the Pope has forbidden condoms and wants you to breed, breed like rabbits. until you are

    Talking about population size...What exactly is the gamplay effect of it?

    In previous games (rome) it was important due to city upgrades being linked to it, and population being decreased when recruiting units.

    But now? I suppose tax, but it seems that is far more affected by economic buildings or ports...(?)

    Law & order, i.e. how many repression points you get per garrisoned unit, seems to be one parameter dependent on population.

    Aren't the higher population areas harder to control once invaded?

    Yep. You're going to have trouble invading my Iroquois territory. It has an astounding total of over 5000 souls within its borders; that's a higher population than many Native American lands can claim.

    wat

    That's impossible. It'd have to be growing at margins of over 1000%: Physically impossible.

    I've noticed that Hungary always seems to be unusually highly populated as well.

    Personally I found it quite amusing that wineries increase population growth like other farms. I think it may be related to people getting drunk and having unprotected sex. Then, they also cause unrest. Have we ever heard of people rioting over the opening of a new winery? Maybe it's the hangovers...
