Quick Overview

The federation_examine_leader command in Stellaris is used to trigger a succession in the leadership of the in-game Federation.

This means that the leader of the Federation is changed, either due to the current leader's term ending, or any other situation that would lead to a change in leadership.

This command allows the player to manipulate this aspect of the game.

In-Depth Description

The federation_examine_leader is a console command in Stellaris that triggers a transition of leadership within a federation.

A federation in Stellaris is a group of different empires who have united for mutual defense, technological development, or diplomatic advantages.

When you use this command, it initiates an immediate examination of the current federation leader.

The leader of the federation, who is normally elected for 10 or 20 years based on the federation's laws, may be replaced according to the federation's rules for succession.

Different federations have different rules, but generally speaking, the most powerful member state or the one with most relative power and contributions, becomes the next leader.

This console command allows the player to have control over the timing of leadership transitions within the federation.

It is important to use this command carefully as federation leadership can profoundly change the strategic dynamics within the game.

The new federation leader will get the ability to control the federation's fleet and make decisions on behalf of the entire federation.

Changing the leader can therefore impact the federation's alliances, wars, and overall strategy.

How to Open the Command Console

In Stellaris, cheats are executed from the command console, a text box that you type commands into.

To open the command console press the ~(tilde) key, which is typically located under ESC (escape).

If your keyboard does not have that key, or pressing ~ does not work, try the following keys:

  • ~
  • SHIFT + 2
  • SHIFT + 3
  • ALT + 2 + 1

Type your command into the console, and then press ENTER .
