Francoist Spain, or Nationalist Spain, is an authoritarian regime that came to power in 1939, historically after beating Flag of Republican Spain Republican Spain in the Spanish Civil War. They are located in the Iberia region of Southwest Europe.

Geography[edit]

Spain lies in Southwestern Europe, with most of its land being on the Iberian peninsula. 1930s Spain also comprises the Balearic Islands and African territory and Islands. Parts of North Africa, namely the Rio de Oro region of modern-day Morocco, Western Sahara, Equatorial Guinea and the Canary Islands off the coast of Northwest Africa is owned and controlled by Spain.

Spain is dominated by mountainous and hilly terrain, and mainland Spain is very uneven, with 45 percent of it being covered by the Meseta Plateau. The plateau is rarely flat, with many uneven hills, mountains, and highlands. Spain contains many significant mountain ranges including the Baetic Mountains in the south, the Central and Iberian Chain in the center, and Cantabrian and Pyrenees Mountain ranges in the northwest and northeast respectively. There is also the fertile Andalusian Plain and other basins. There are many large coastal plains, with bays, coves, and sandy beaches. Along the Bay of Biscay there are large coastal, rugged cliffs. The Strait of Gibraltar separates Spain and Europe from Africa, specifically Morocco, with the closest points being only 13 km apart. Finally, mainland Spain contains over 1,500 rivers of which are mostly small. Significant rivers are the Duero, Ebro and Guadalquivir.

Spain shares a long border with its neighbor Flag of Portugal Portugal which makes up the rest of the Iberian peninsular. It borders Flag of France France in the north, with the tall Pyrenees mountain range making a natural border between the two nations and in the south through their African colonies. Spain also borders Flag of United Kingdom United Kingdom in the south with British controlled Gibraltar.

Spain has multiple important borders to bodies of water, such as the Mediterranean Sea, Strait of Gibraltar, Atlantic Ocean and Bay of Biscay.

Historical Background[edit]

Following the Nationalist victory in the Spanish Civil War against Flag of Republican Spain Republican Spain, Francisco Franco instituted a dictatorship that lasted 36 years.

During that time World War II happened, and even though Spain was considered a friend to the Axis or even a puppet regime, they did not join the war. Nevertheless, Spain would support the Axis in various ways throughout most of the war all the while maintaining its neutrality.

After World War II ended, Spain was isolated from the "New World" and ended up struggling some years because of his autarkic economy that led them into a big economic depression, all this while the economy was still trying to recover from the civil war. The 1947 Law of Succession made Spain a de jure Kingdom again but defined Franco as the Head of State for life with the power to choose the person to become King of Spain and his successor, consolidating him as a definitive dictator.

Reforms were implemented in the 1950s and Spain abandoned autarky, delegating authority from the falangist movement, which had been prone to isolationism, to a new breed of economists, the technocrats of Opus Dei. This led to massive economic growth, second only to Japan, that lasted until the mid-1970s, known as the "Spanish Miracle".

During the Cold War, Spain aligned with the Flag of United States United States, joining the United Nations and facing off against the Soviets.

Franco died in 1975 at the age of 82. He restored the monarchy before his death, which made his successor King Juan Carlos I, who led the Spanish transition to democracy.

National Focus[edit]

Nationalist Spanish National Focus Tree.
Main article: Nationalist Spanish national focus tree

Flag of Nationalist Spain Nationalist Spain gets a unique focus tree with the La Résistance La Résistance expansion. Without the expansion, it utilizes the Generic national focus tree instead.

The Nationalist Spanish national focus tree can be divided into 11 sections. 1 pre civil war branch leading into 3 main branches and 2 shared branches. A post civil war sub-branch can be split from each of these Branches:

A Great Spain Branch
This pre Spanish Civil War branch gives Spain popularity to the FascistFascist and Non-AlignedNon-Aligned parties, Political PowerPolitical Power, garrison control over various Spanish states, and various divisions during the Spanish Civil War. Unlike the Flag of Republican Spain Republican Spanish national focus tree, these focuses take 28 or 35 days rather than 70 days.
Flag of Falangist SpainThe Phalanx Ascendant Branch
This branch allows the Flag of Falangist Spain Falangists to take power, increase StabilityStability, create minor uprisings against Flag of Republican Spain Republican Spain, gain a research slot and gain Civilian factoryCivilian and Military factoryMilitary factories. This path will force the Flag of Carlist Spain Carlists to declare war making another faction to fight against in the civil war.
The National-Syndicalist State Sub-branch
Once the Spanish Civil War is over, this sub-branch allows Flag of Falangist Spain Falangist Spain to expand its navy, gain a research slot, gain factories and give army bonuses in recruitable population and training time. It recreates the Spanish Empire with war goals against Flag of Portugal Portugal and its colonies, Flag of United Kingdom United Kingdom, Flag of France France, Flag of Italy Italy, The Flag of United States United States, former Spanish Colonies and Flag of Brazil Brazil.
Flag of Falangist SpainFlag of Nationalist SpainThe Corpo Truppe Volontarie/The Condor Legion Branch
This branch is shared between the Flag of Falangist Spain Falangists and the Flag of Nationalist Spain Nationalists. It allows Flag of Italy Italy and Flag of Germany Germany to send more volunteers to aid in the civil war. It also gives forts on the Flag of France French border, stability, political power and research bonuses.
The National And Popular Army of Spain/Join the Axis/National Recovery sub-branch
Once the Spanish Civil War is over, it gives the Flag of Falangist Spain Falangists and the Flag of Nationalist Spain Nationalists research bonuses for the army, factories, infrastructure, reduces the effects of the "Recovering From Civil War" national spirit and gives national recovery bonuses.
Flag of Nationalist SpainUnify the Nationalist Front Branch
This branch focuses on aligning the FascistFalangist and non-alignedCarlist factions under the leadership of Francisco Franco as Flag of Nationalist Spain Nationalist Spain. It gives stability and war support, and combat bonuses. It will also bypass an impending Flag of Carlist Spain Carlist revolt. There is also a focus that allows Flag of Portugal Portugal to send more volunteers which leads to two focuses that can only be done once the Spanish Civil War is over. These two focuses allow Spain to ally Flag of Portugal Portugal and create the Latin Bloc which also allies with Flag of Vichy France Vichy France, Flag of Italy Italy and other Iberian countries if they are available.
Join the Allies/Adopt the 26 Points Sub-branch
Once the Spanish Civil War is over, it allows Flag of Nationalist Spain Nationalist Spain to join the Flag of United Kingdom British or Flag of United States American faction, which gives naval bonuses, factories, boosts national recovery and removes the "Recovering From Civil War" national spirit. It adds a research slot. The Adopt the 26 Points sub-branch leads to a section that is shared with Flag of Carlist Spain Carlist Spain. The Flag of Nationalist Spain Nationalist Spain exclusive section allows Francisco Franco to become dictator for life and leads to focuses that allows the sending of volunteers and wargoals against Flag of France France and the Flag of United Kingdom United Kingdom.
Flag of Nationalist SpainFlag of Carlist SpainUtilize the Intellectuals Branch
This branch is shared between the Flag of Nationalist Spain Nationalists and the Flag of Carlist Spain Carlists. It gives a research slot.

These focuses can only be selected after the Spanish Civil War is over. If the Flag of Nationalist Spain Nationalists take this branch, Alfonso XIII becomes leader of the Non-AlignedNon-Aligned party. If the Flag of Carlist Spain Carlists take this branch, it fulfills the choice made in the Settle the Succession Question focus and creates the Kingdom of Spain. Jaime IV replaces Alfonso XIII if the focus is not taken by February 28, 1941. The rest of the branch gives air buildings and forts on naval bases. These focuses must be taken by Flag of Nationalist Spain Nationalist Spain in order to unlock the wargoal for Gibraltar and West Africa. Flag of Carlist Spain Carlist Spain cannot take the focuses following these.
Flag of Carlist SpainSupremacy of the Communion Branch
This branch allows the Flag of Carlist Spain Carlists to prepare insurrections in the civil war, gain army bonuses, gain air and army research bonuses and civilian factories. This path will force the Flag of Falangist Spain Falangists to declare war making another faction to fight against in the civil war.
Settle the Succession Question Sub-branch
After the Spanish Civil War, this sub-branch allows Flag of Carlist Spain Carlist Spain to chose between Alfonso XIII or Javier I as King of Spain. Jaime IV replaces Alfonso XIII if the focus is not taken by February 28, 1941. It also gives naval research bonuses, a research slot and war goals against the Flag of United Kingdom United Kingdom, the Flag of Netherlands Netherlands, Flag of Belgium Belgium, Flag of Luxembourg Luxembourg, the Flag of United States United States, Flag of Cuba Cuba and the Flag of Philippines Philippines. If France has Alphonse I as King, they may decide to become a Spanish Puppet. Otherwise, Spain gets a wargoal. Flag of Portugal Portugal may also chose to be annexed and cored by Spain or give wargoals.


Technology[edit]

  • Nationalist Spain begins with the same researched technologies as Flag of Republican Spain Republican Spain before the Civil War.

Diplomacy[edit]

  • Nationalist Spain starts the game very hostile towards Flag of Republican Spain Republican Spain, which is obvious considering they are at war.
  • During and after the war, Spain has a good relationship with Germany and Italy mostly because of the volunteers they normally send.
  • After the war, Spain remains mostly neutral and most of its relationships are based on ideological differences.

Alliances[edit]

  • Nationalist Spain begins without any alliances and if you have historical AI focuses on they will stay that way.

Politics[edit]

National Spirits[edit]

Without La RésistanceLa Résistance, Nationalist Spain does not have National Spirits.
With La RésistanceLa Résistance, before the Spanish Civil War, Spain will have the following national spirits:

Carlism icon
Carlism
  • Weekly StabilityStability: -0.30%
  • Division Attack: -10.0%
  • Division Defense: -10.0%
  • Daily Support for UnalignedUnaligned: +0.05
In 1830 King Ferdinand VII promulgated the Pragmatic Sanction and made his daughter, the future Isabella II, heir presumptive. This act removed his brother Infante Carlos from the line of succession, and so, upon the King's death, supporters of Infante Carlos ignited a series of civil wars, uniting under the banner of Carlism and fighting for the reinstatement of the Salic line of succession.

A century later, the Carlist movement is still very much alive, and its militas, called Requetés, train unceasingly in preparation for the time where they will once more be needed to defend Christianity and champion the return of the rightful King.

Military Disloyalty icon
Military Disloyalty
  • Military Leader Cost: +100.0%
  • Cannot train units, disband units,
    or edit unit templates.
The failed "Sanjurjada" military coup attempt in 1932 still casts it shadow over the Spanish military to this day. In the aftermath, various disloyal military commanders, among them the coup's leader José Sanjurjo, fled to exile in Portugal and continue their plotting even now.

Even this failure has not discouraged disloyal officers, however, as even within Spain itself many desire to see a return to a Monarchy, or even a strong Fascist dictatorship. Too strong meddling by the government in the internal affairs of the military may well spark yet another uprising; far more violent and bloody than the last.

Political Violence icon
Political Violence
  • StabilityStability: -15.00%
  • Cannot Assign Ministers & Laws: Yes
The Spanish political scene is one of increasing polarization and violence. Only two years have elapsed since the last big uprising, the Asturias Miners' Strike, and the current political climate appears to have all the makings of a new, far larger and far less localized uprising. It seems unlikely that the upcoming elections will put an end to this downward spiral of societal unrest.
National Strikes icon
National Strikes
  • StabilityStability: -10.00%
  • Construction Speed: -10.00%
  • Factory Output: -10.00%
  • Dockyard Output: -10.00%
The country finds itself seemingly in the grips of the starting stages of a workers' revolution; strike upon strike paralyze the industry and daily life as workers demand less work and more pay, and poor tenant farmers increasingly appropriate farmland while the government turns a blind eye.

When the Spanish Civil War begins, all of the National Spirits except Carlism Carlism is removed and Nationalist Spain will obtain the following national spirit:

Death Before Surrender icon
Death Before Surrender
  • Surrender Limit: +100.00%
  • Minimum Surrender Limit: +15.00%

If the player follows the Flag of Carlist Spain Carlist path, the National Spirit Carlism Carlism will be replaced by:

Disjointed Carlist Juntas icon
Disjointed Carlist Juntas
  • Weekly StabilityStability: -0.50%
  • Division Attack: -10.0%
  • Division Defense: -10.0%

When the Spanish Civil War ends, Nationalist Spain may obtain the following national spirit:

Recovering From Civil War icon
Recovering From Civil War
  • Consumer Goods Factories: +10%
  • Construction Speed: -10.00%
  • Factory Output: -20.00%
  • Dockyard Output: -20.00%
  • Join Faction Tension Limit: +50.0%
Spain is currently focused on rebuilding the country and less willing to join a faction.

Strategies and Guides[edit]

To win the Civil War against Flag of Republican Spain Republican Spain first focus on occupying Bilbao in the north and then create a front line with all your remaining divisions with Republican Spain and slowly push them back using the help of the Germans and Italians.

After you win the Civil War focus on rebuilding your economy until early 1939. After that, focus entirely on your military. Build tons of military factories and train a lot of divisions.

When World War II breaks out, make sure you have at least 6 well-trained, 40 width divisions to send to the Axis as volunteers. The trick to send more volunteers than the maximum allowed is very simple: Send volunteers to more than one country because the maximum cap of volunteers only applies to a single country and not an alliance.

But if you are someone who likes challenges and you want to get the "Nobody expects..." achievement, try to research light tanks 2 ASAP and then use all the army xp you get to improve the tanks' speed. There is another way which is based on paratroopers, and you are going to need A LOT of trashy fighters.

You can also wait for Germany and Italy to declare war on France. By 1939-40 you should be able to join the Axis who automatically will ask you to join the war against the Allies. France has a lot of troops stationed at the German and Italian border and will not be ready for a quick thrust from the south. Train a bunch of 20+ width divisions with artillery (about 24-48), and some horse or mechanized divisions as well. Spread out your infantry across the French border and focus your mobilized troops on the Northwestern side of the Pyrenees. When you join the Axis-faction, quickly join the war and make a massive offensive. The French troops will be busy fighting with your infantry, while your mobilized troops head for Paris. Make sure to spread out your mobilized troops, so they'll be harder to catch. Paris will most likely be undefended and France will capitulate giving you most of the French territory and the "Nobody expects..." achievement.

Now that you are ready to beat down the communist threat just go out and make Generalissimo proud!
