Norway is a minor nation in northern Europe. It shares a land border with Flag of Sweden Sweden (+20) and Flag of Finland Finland (-10).

Historical Background

Norway attempted to stay neutral in World War II (like all other Nordic Countries) and remained so until the 9. 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.

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). Flag of Germany 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 Flag of Soviet Union Soviet Union has the focus "Baltic Security" which gives a boost for communism in all Nordic countries, Norway included.
