This game is easily my favorite strategy game made by paradox, and pretty much all other companies. I have been playing the Europa Universalis games and I truly love them and I thought they were the best games out there until I found Victoria. The EU games are great, but once I tried Victoria I have found them too simple for my taste. It took me probably 2 weeks to fully understand how to play but they were the best two weeks spent. The economic model and the government model really shine and I find them much better than those in the EU games, I find myself trying to adjust taxes and switch to a democracy far too often in EU. Overall I think this is one of the best games ever and is completely underrated, and it's only drawback is the learning curve.
