The government type of each faction

Note: All new Factions will start as Tribal with the Organization of 1, Unless they split off when were Vassals. And all vassals will have the Government of their Overlord and will keep that government if they become Independent, Example: Haradrim (Feudal) take over Gulfings (Tribal) the Gulfings will change over to Feudalism Automatically. (May be changed if too OP)

Direct Provinces[]

They are usually the capital province and provinces attached to it, all other provinces would be under control of vassals. The faction can only get Influence Directly from their provinces not their Vassals.

If you have no vassals and you cant take the land as Direct then it will only give half of what it would give to a vassal
