Capital:

Government type:
Democratic Regime

Faction:
Neutral

Norway is a minor nation in northern Europe.

Historical Background

Norway stayed neutral until the 9. of April 1940, when Flag of Germany Germany invaded both Flag of Denmark 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 of Sweden Sweden, flowed. These resources were vital for the German war effort, so securing the supply lane was critical. The invasion was called Operation Weserübung.

Technology

Norway has most of the 1918 infantry and support techs but is lacking early tank techs. The nation does have a number of early air and naval techs.

Norway starts with 3 research slots.

Diplomacy

Norway is part of no alliance at the beginning of the campaign. Because of its democratic government and location in Europe it tends to have good relations with the allies. Germany has a focus that lets it increase fascism support in Norway, though the AI rarely takes this path. It rather takes Operation Weserübung. In addition, the Soviet Union has the focus "Baltic Security" which gives the same for communism.
