What is cultural equilibrium?

I have seen this as a factor to certain things such as tribute for the Vikings Sea Kings. What is it exactly?

    Good question. So much goes unexplained.

    That's just the value decreasing over time. It's slightly different for war fervour where it's about the value going back to zero at the speed of one point per-turn.

    Right but what IS it?

    Administrative cost? I don't know.

    And if what you want to know is the exact value loss then I'm not sure but I think it's -1 per turn unless you already have 75 points or more in which case it adds a -2. That's the same for every factions mechanic that goes to 100. In the case of the Great Viking Armies the lowest Here King value instead drops at a rate of -1 per 4 turns unless the difference in between the two 15 or greater at which point it's -2 per 4 turns.

    I've always wondered what this was as well.

    I've heard its a balancing mechanism, basically a decay factor so the player can't just sit at max legitimacy/heroism/tribute etc. forever
