Belgium is a small Democratic country in Western Europe. It is bordered by Luxembourg, the Netherlands, the German Reich, and France. It has two states: Vlaanderen is mostly plains, while Wallonie is mostly forest.
Belgium also holds the releasable country of Zaire in Africa. It's mostly jungle while Leopoldville is mostly forest.
Belgium had already been invaded by the German Empire in WWI. Most of the country was occupied, but in the end, it won and annexed the German state of Eupen-Malmedy.
Belgium was yet again invaded, this time by the German Reich in WWII. The whole country was occupied as the British and French forces failed to hold the country. The Germans reannexed Eupen-Malmedy.
Belgium was liberated by the Allies in 1944, pushing the Germans back. The Germans attempted to attack the Allied lines but failed.
The Potsdam Conference following WWII gave Belgium its territories back. During the Cold War, Belgium supported the Western Bloc and joined NATO.
- Main article: Generic national focus tree
Belgium, lacking a unique national focus tree, uses the generic national focus tree instead.
The generic focus tree has 5 main branches:
- Army Effort gives army experience and research bonuses to army research.
- Aviation Effort gives air experience, builds air bases, and research bonuses to air research.
- Naval Effort gives navy experience, builds naval dockyards, and research bonuses to navy research.
- Industrial Effort builds civilian and military factories (usually even if building slots are already full)and grants extra research slots.
- Political Effort gives the country choices on which political path they will take.
Belgium starts with 3 research slots.
|Army technology||Naval technology||Air technology||Electronics & Industry|
Belgium is a democracy with elections every 4 years and the next one is in November 1936.

Strategies and guides
In 1936, research the great war tank and then go to the light tanks, research paratrooper I. After you completed that, with your generic tree you will start with political effort then hire a fascist demagogue and wait moment's till you get fascist either by igniting a civil war or either doing a referendum. Once you finished that. Align with Germany and attack Netherland and Luxembourg gaining all of there core state. After you could invade France or any country with Germany helping later. Also focus in industrial and military after you completed all of this.
