The ledger is a virtual book that takes up the screen, containing many pages which show various information about the current game.

To raise the ledger, you may click on the "scroll" icon on the main screen. Hitting F6 also raises the ledger. Note that raising the ledger does not pause the game, and things will keep happening unless the game is paused

There are 35 pages in the ledger, each showing some different information about your game. You can "turn pages" in the ledger, advancing forward and back one page at a time. At the bottom of the screen are tabs that allow you to jump to specific pages. Using the list you get by right-clicking in the ledger is the fastest way of reaching a specific page.

Information about all existing centers of trade are shown on page 14. This page can be used handily for finding open spots in CoTs; sort it for trade value of the CoT or placement cost of merchants to find the most attractive options.

Page 15: Loans Summary

Your country's current loans are shown on page 15, listed in the order they were taken. Each line shows one loan, including its amount, interest rate, and scheduled repayment date. Loans you have given to other countries are also listed here.

Page 19: Military Alliances

This page lists all current military alliances, including their expiration dates. Knowing the exact day an alliance will expire can be very useful if you want to invite a country to your own alliance. Usually when an AI alliance expires, the AIs will recreate it within a few days, so there is usually a very short window of opportunity. You can also use the expiry dates to plan gifts to raise relations a month (or months) in advance of an anticipated alliance expiration.
