Present DayEdit

Focus on expanding north into the other Nordic nations. You must, however, make sure you are on good terms with the Germany Germans to lower the chances of Germany becoming hostile towards you. Send a diplomat to improve relations with them on Day 1.


Germany Germany is not very likely to ally you unless you increased your relations with them. In addition to your diplomat improving relations, rival whoever Germany Germany has rivaled. Other potential allies include Norway Norway (Historical Friend), Flag of Poland Poland, Finland Finland, Netherlands The Netherlands, and Belgium Belgium. Your allies will provide the bulk of your military strength against Sweden Sweden (or a hostile Germany Germany).

The Scandinavian RouteEdit

In order to form Scandinavia Scandinavia, you need to begin conquering the Nordic nations above. Start fabricating on Sweden Sweden as soon as the game starts. Make sure you have allied Norway Norway (you won't be allied to them throughout the game, just for annexing Sweden early on) and other European powers. Use the "Nationalism" causes-beli to declare war on Sweden Sweden (as well as on Iceland Iceland, they will have literally no navy, army, or allies and they make for an easy addition to your country). Once the Swedes have been defeated; begin to think about whether its time to go after Norway Norway. It's likely they took a lot of damage in the war against Sweden Sweden, use Norway Norway's weak position to your advantage.
