In-Depth Description

The surrender command in Stellaris is used to automatically make a selected country surrender in a war situation, acceding to all demands of the victorious party.

This is an instantaneous command, immediately ending any active conflict on the predefined terms of defeat.

To use this command, you must first utilize the [empire id] parameter to list all wars that the given empire is involved in, each of which will have a unique war_id.

The war_id is necessary to specify which conflict the selected country is surrendering in, in cases where a country is involved in multiple wars.
