Foreign policies are policies aimed at affecting the outside world. Sometimes the foreign affairs are not the only factors affected. The policies are good or bad, depending on what it will do, and pure luck. Keep in mind that the foreign policies wiki page only shows the most commonly shown policies and effects (sorry).
