Historical Background

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

National Focus

Politics

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

National Spirits

Norway does not have any national spirits.

Diplomacy

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).   Germany has a focus that lets it increase fascism support in Norway, though the AI does not take this path with historical focus on. It rather takes Operation Weserübung. In addition, the   Soviet Union has the focus "Baltic Security" which gives the same for communism.
