First version, tested in single player only. Install by copying all files to the Victoria 2 mod folder (see description for more info).
To install: extract files and place in your Victoria 2 mod folder, which is located wherever you installed Victoria 2. For example if you installed Victoria 2 at C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Victoria2/ Then the mod folder will be at C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Victoria2/mod/
The economy may be wonky at the start due to Victoria 2 requiring so many resources that have now been made uncolonised.
Thanks to Gameraced and the people in D.O.D. discord for the idea.

If you want to do observer I recommend playing Haiti, just set all spending to zero. In all my testing they never got invaded once.
