Historical background[edit]

An optional short and concise description of the country's historical background in the years leading to and during the war (if it couldn't be fit in the opening). This should be no more than 1000 characters in length.


Main article: American events

A short general description of the events available is preferred.

National focus[edit]

Generic national focus tree.
Main article: Generic national focus tree

A short excerpt from the main article (use transclusion) of the different branches in the national focus tree - include a small thumbnail to the right. For nations without a unique NF tree use the generic national focus tree as seen in this example.

Flag of Sweden Sweden, 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.


Sweden starts with 3 research slots.

Army technology Naval technology Air technology Electronics & Industry
  • Infantry Eq. I
  • Engineer Company I
  • Recon Company I
  • Light Tank I
  • Towed Artillery I
  • Destroyer II
  • Light Cruiser I

A short paragraph on the government type of the nation 1936, how often elections are held, when was the last ellection and ideology. Any nation modifiers that are not included in national spirits, like leaders special traits can be described here.

Issues to address[edit]

Here we can write about any special political endeavors/challenges that need to be addressed by this nation, the great depression, the great purge, etc. For generic countries this subtopic might best be removed. Any specific strategy that deals with how to overcome these challenges belong in the strategy section, this is purely for describing the situation.

A short description of the status of the nation's armed forces.


  1. Refrain from using NATO counters as only a subset of all users are familiar with them (unit icons can be found here).

  3. Stick to general unit categories. Variants/upgrades can be mentioned in the accompanying short descriptions.
  4. No need to mention units types that do are not available (i.e. a total of "0" units).
