Slovakia is a landlocked Flag of German Reich German Reich Autonomy reichskommissariat.png Reichskommissariat in Central Europe. It borders the Flag of German Reich German Reich to the northwest, Flag of Hungary Hungary to the south, and Flag of Poland Poland to the north and east.

Historical Background[edit | edit source]

The idea of Slovakia was firstly born during the First World War in Flag of Hungary Austria-Hungary by Czechoslovakian separatists. Today, Czech and Slovak are considered two different languages, despite their high level of mutual intelligibility. However, in the Interwar period, the official ideology of Flag of Czechoslovakia Czechoslovakia embraced the idea of these two ethnic groups being in fact two branches of the same nation. Despite this, Slovaks view Czechs as a different ethnicity.

Interwar Flag of Czechoslovakia Czechoslovakia had a sizeable German minority of around 3 million people living in a region bordering Germany, known as Sudetenland. After Munich agreement in late September 1938, these areas were awarded to Germany, and subsequently, parts of Slovakia were given to Poland and in particular, to Hungary. Weakened Flag of Czechoslovakia Czechoslovakia was ultimately split in March 1939, with Czech lands being annexed to fascism Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia, and Slovakia forming Flag of Slovakia (First) Slovak Republic (also known as the Slovak State) under German overlordship.

Please note the style guidelines and the example page.

If you want to free yourself from Germany before the start of the war, you'll have to start a civil war, and win it quickly, usually a week. You must win it quickly otherwise Germany will get called in. To start the civil war, hire a communist revolutionary, do Anti-Democratic Raids, Prepare for Civil war, then Ignite Civil War. (You can also do Democratic Reformer and Anti-Communist raids) You must hire the Army Maneuver Expert and push for the enemy capital, Presov, with both units (infantry and tank). If you manage to take their capital before Germany is called in, you will win the civil war, and you will be a free nation. -intergalactic731
