This seems to be a significant improvment, though it does add a lot
of new orders. (Not that that concerns me).

I like the minimum garrison idea...

The rest of the gold is spent by the garrison presumably? If I understand
this one would get 56 gold from a normal province (300 tax base - 10*2
soldier maintenance = 280 * 20% = 56 gold) Each additional soldier would
cost 0.4 from the profits allowing a maximum of 150 soldiers in a garrison

So a pledged province counts double. I like this idea, as it encourages
cooperation to a point. One can have vassels without loosing any
benefit to the king/overlord/...
Last possible bug: What happens to the a garrison installed in
the province with the castle? Does the owner of the castle still
get the 300/600 gold or does the garrison pre-empt it?
