Flag of New Zealand New Zealand, along with other nations of the British commonwealth, gets a unique national focus tree as part of the Together for VictoryTogether for Victory expansion. Without the expansion New Zealand utilizes the Generic national focus tree.

New Zealand's unique NF tree (part of the Together for Victory expansion).


New Zealand's unique focus tree has five main branches:

The First Labour Government
Acts as the political tree, providing both a means to deal with internal issues, and mutually exclusive branches on whether to remain within the Commonwealth, or to push for Independence as a Democratic, Fascist or Communist country.
Transfer the New Zealand Division
Focuses on developing a navy through construction of dockyards and bonuses to ship and naval doctrine research.
Expand the NZPAF
Provides bonuses to aircraft and air doctrine research.
National Roads Board
Acts as the industrial tree, buffing industrial capacity, resource extraction and research slots.
Army Reforms
Focuses on bonuses for Infantry, Armour and Artillery, and construction of military industry capacity.
