Victoria 3: How to Unlock and Invest in Institutions
Institutions are an important part of your country’s political make-up as you will be able to induce changes into your nation by investing in them. Much like laws, institutions matter greatly when it comes to molding your nation to what you want it to be.

By enacting certain laws, you will be able to unlock tiered policies which are known as Institutions. And to invest in them, you will need Bureaucracy in order to level them up. When you unlock an institution, you will begin at Level 1. Through research and other ways, you will be able to raise the max level of your Institutions and upgrade them with Bureaucracy.
Here are the Institutions that you can unlock in Victoria 3, as well as the laws you need to pass in order to unlock them. Note that you will need about one in-game year to level up each Institution.
- Colonial Affairs – Colonization Laws
- Education – Education System Laws and Children’s Rights Laws
- Health System – Health System Laws
- Home Affairs – Internal Security Laws
- Law Enforcement – Policing Laws
- Social Security – Welfare Laws
- Workplace Safety Office – Labor Rights Laws
With the help of these Institutions, you will be able to benefit targeted parts of the country that you wish to improve. As upgrading Institutions costs Bureaucracy, make sure to keep those costs low.
