- Main article: Generic national focus tree
El Salvador, 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.
El Salvador starts with 2 research slots.
|Army technology||Naval technology||Air technology||Electronics & Industry|

Strategies and guides
Even though the country is small, the industry is tiny the manpower is tiny and it has basically no resources. It does have neighbors that are similar in strength to itself. That, and you have the possibility to form the Central American union.
But even this union will only give you about the same manpower as the Netherlands, Hungary or Belgium has, with about the same industry. But without the resources and the options to expand.
First thing you need to do, is increase your military production. Choose for the focuses that give you extra military factories. After 2, go for the research slots. With the first PP, justify on Honduras, and the country to the west directly after this. Depending on historical focuses on or off, you have to deal with the USA after a few attacks, as they want to stop you.
Amass about 12 armies (of 3 each) for the first target, and about 16 for the second one. Aim directly for the capital. After these 2, on nonhistorical focuses, the USA usually interferes. And you either have to make countries you want to invade fascist, or go for a 1 week war maximum. This can only be done having air supremacy, so don't forget about these.
After your first 2 targets, it is quite easy to conquer the rest of them. Keep an eye on your manpower, as it will go very low quickly.
Before declaring on Costa Rica, decide what you want to do. You don't have many options from here on out. You have to either go to make Mexico fascist, to then conquer them. Research naval invasions and marines and build boats and go for Venezuela. Or join the Axis and try to kick out the allies from southern America.
