Historical BackgroundEdit

Switzerland is a minor country in Europe. It shares borders with 3 of the game's 7 major powers:   France on the west,   Italy to the south,   Germany to the north, and   Austria to the east. Switzerland aggressively maintained its neutrality in the Great War and, later, World War II.

National SpiritEdit

Neutral Foreign Policy
  • Join faction tension limit: +100%
  • Send volunteers tension limit +20%
  • Guarantee tension limit +100%
Neutrality is sometimes viewed as a craven stance, but this nation trusts that when the dust settles, those who don't take sides may be better off than those who did.


As a Democratic country, Switzerland has slightly positive relations with the same ideology (+10), and more strongly positive relations with countries that share the same ruling party (+20). Switzerland has a slightly negative relationship with all Communist, Fascist, and Non-Aligned countries (-10).

Switzerland does not have claims or cores on foreign soil.

National FocusEdit

As of version 1.5, Switzerland has the same Focus Tree as all other minor countries.
