What would be historically correct manpower/citysize/tax values for the Indonesian islands at or around the game start of Europa Universalis III in 1399?
The game as shipped tends to under-value "native" population numbers significantly outside Europe, and it tends to base those on post-colonial numbers in a lot of cases. Of course, with the game being as highly moddable as it is, it's no problem to modify those numbers to the correct ones, and to add new provinces as necessary. In particular, I'm interested in the areas around the province IDs 617-659 (so roughly the areas of today's Indonesia, Philippines and other smaller states on the neighbouring islands) and their (raw) values for
citysize for the civilised areas (most if not all of the coast) and
native_size for the "wild" areas inland.
Historical references which can be used to derive those values are welcome as well.
Since the History.SE site opened now, the question about the real-world demographic and economic situation in this area has its own question now there: "What were the demographics and economics of south-east Asian islands around year 1400?" Should there data available be sufficient to answer this question about in-game data values and nobody post an answer until then, I'll post one answer myself.
