Starting Politics Edit
Starting Ports Edit
The Portuguese start with no ports on the map, and any gains made in the Caribbean must either be done by the player or by Portuguese AI while at war.
By virtue of being the only faction not to have an initial presence on the map, players may not be able to conquer ports for Portugal or obtain letters of Marque unless they choose the Portuguese nationality during character creation. While this is the default state of affairs for Portugal, it would also apply to any other faction which loses all of its ports.
