Flag of Nepal Nepal is a sovereign state in South Asia. It is a landlocked mountainous country in the Western Himalayas, Nepal borders the Flag of British Raj British Raj to the south, east and west,and Flag of Tibet Tibet to the north. To the east, it is separated from Flag of Bhutan Bhutan by the Indian state of West Bengal.

Historical Background[edit | edit source]

The Rana regime, a tightly centralized autocracy, pursued a policy of isolating Nepal from external influences. This policy helped Nepal maintain its national independence during the British colonial era, but it also impeded the country's economic development and modernisation. The Ranas were staunchly pro-British and assisted the British during the Indian Rebellion of 1857 and later in both World Wars. At the same time, although Chinese claims, the British supported Nepalese independence at the beginning of the twentieth century.

In December 1923, Britain and Nepal formally signed a "treaty of perpetual peace and friendship" superseding the Sugauli Treaty of 1816 and upgrading the British resident in Kathmandu to an envoy.

National focus[edit | edit source]

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 Nepal Nepal is not a major country and therefore shares the common generic national focus tree.

The generic focus tree has 5 main branches:

Army Effort branch
Gives army experience and research bonuses to army research.
Aviation Effort branch
Gives air experience, builds air bases, and research bonuses to air research.
Naval Effort branch
Gives navy experience, builds naval dockyards, and research bonuses to navy research.
Industrial Effort branch
Builds civilian and military factories (usually even if building slots are already full), infrastructure and grants extra research slots.
Political Effort branch
Gives the country choices on which political path they will take.

Technology[edit | edit source]

Nepal starts in 1936 with two research slots. Nepal begins with the following researched in the 1936 start date:

Army technology Naval technology Air technology Electronics & Industry

Strategies and Guides[edit | edit source]

Strategy The below is one of many player suggested strategies for Nepal. Bear in mind, due to the dynamic nature of the game, it may unfold differently for other players.

Nepal starts in a difficult position surrounded by giants such as China and British Raj, Therefore there is limited expansion opportunity. They have very weak industrial base, so rushing industrial focus is recommended. Take communist support advisor and then rush the fascist focus tree(for manpower bonuses) so that it wont be locked out after you turn communist. The goal is to join the Comintern and flip to fascist(to get better puppets). After taking Tibet and Bhutan, justify on Xibei San Ma. Calling the USSR prevents Sinkiang and Communist China from joining the war, or at the very least makes them join later (this will ensure they do not take your warscore, which would lower the amount of states you can take in the peace conference). Meanwhile, other Chinese overlords will most likely join the war. After they capitulate, puppet Communist China and give them the states. Since the puppet will have cheaper war score, and Japan has yet to puppet China, they will take less lands. Now you have a big puppet with lots of manpower. Declare war on China and finish the war. when the war is won, give your Chinese puppet the land in china. Now go on conquering Afghanistan and Iraq. Germany will declare on the USSR (with historical AI on historical AI) so decide which side to join. Sometimes the UK will invite you to the Allies if you are in the same war. How much you can do now will depend on your skill.
