==Geography==
 +
Norway is located in northern Europe on the Scandinavian peninsular. It is dominated by the Scandinavian mountains, which separates Norway from its neighboring country {{flag|Sweden}}.

==Historical Background==
 
==Historical Background==
Norway stayed neutral until the 9. of April 1940, when {{flag|Germany}} invaded both {{flag|Denmark}} and Norway. While there were strategic reasons for holding a large, mountainous coastline in the Atlantic, one main reason for the invasion was the port of Narvik, through which iron from Kiruna, {{flag|Sweden}}, flowed. These resources were vital for the German war effort, so securing the supply lane was critical. The invasion was called Operation Weserübung.
+
Norway attempted to stay neutral in World War II (like all other Nordic Countries) and remained so until the 9th of April 1940, when {{flag|Germany}} invaded both {{flag|Denmark}} and Norway as part of Operation Weserübung. Operation Weserübung was intended to secure access to Norway's coastline and ports for the Kriegsmarine to use as well as ensuring the safe transportation of Swedish iron ore to Germany. In 1942, Germany established a puppet regime in Norway, known as the ''Nasjonal Regering'' or '''Quisling Regime''', headed by Vidkun Quisling, party chairman of the ''Nasjonal Samling'' political party, Norway's fascist party.
 +
After the death of Adolf Hitler, the Flensburg Government (successor state to Nazi Germany) drew up plans to withdraw the remnants of the Wehrmacht into Norway and Denmark, establishing those countries as a national redoubt and last holdout against the Allies.
 +
Norway remained under German occupation until May 8, 1945.

Norway is part of no alliance at the beginning of the campaign.

Norway does have plains and forested areas, mostly to the southeast and the northernmost part. The Norwegian capital Oslo is the only urban area of the state.

Historical Background[edit]

Norway attempted to stay neutral in World War II (like all other Nordic Countries) and remained so until the 9th of April 1940, when Flag of Germany Germany invaded both Flag of Denmark Denmark and Norway as part of Operation Weserübung. Operation Weserübung was intended to secure access to Norway's coastline and ports for the Kriegsmarine to use as well as ensuring the safe transportation of Swedish iron ore to Germany. In 1942, Germany established a puppet regime in Norway, known as the Nasjonal Regering or Quisling Regime, headed by Vidkun Quisling, party chairman of the Nasjonal Samling political party, Norway's fascist party. After the death of Adolf Hitler, the Flensburg Government (successor state to Nazi Germany) drew up plans to withdraw the remnants of the Wehrmacht into Norway and Denmark, establishing those countries as a national redoubt and last holdout against the Allies. Norway remained under German occupation until May 8, 1945.

National Focus[edit]

Generic national focus tree.
Main article: Generic national focus tree

Flag of Norway Norway, lacking a unique national focus tree, uses the generic national focus tree instead.

The generic focus tree has 5 main branches:

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


Technology[edit]

Norway has some infantry and support techs but is lacking early artillery and tank techs. The nation does have a number of early air and naval techs.

Norway starts with 3 research slots.

Politics[edit]

Norway starts out as a socialist democracy. Elections are held every four years, with the next election in October of 1936.

National Spirits[edit]

Norway does not have any national spirits.

Diplomacy[edit]

Norway is part of no alliance at the beginning of the campaign. Because of its socialist government it has good relations with other democracies (+10) and socialist countries (+20). Flag of Germany Germany has a focus that lets it increase fascist support in Norway, though the AI does not take this path with historical focus on. It rather takes Operation Weserübung. In addition, the Flag of Soviet Union Soviet Union has the focus "Baltic Security" which gives a boost to communism in all Nordic countries, Norway included.

Military[edit]

Norway has a small starting army, and only 15.21k free manpower. The starting division templates are the 9-brigade "Infanteriet Divisjon" and the 6-brigade "Binær Divisjon", along with the 3-brigade "Dragonregiment" Cavalry division template. Since Norway is already on limited conscription it needs to go to war or change its ideology in order to raise the conscription law and field a larger army.

Strategies and guides[edit]

The best way to expand is to wait until Germany is fighting the Allies. Declare war on them then declare another war on another nation so they join the Axis keeping in mind to keep one neutral country between you and them to prevent a land invasion.
