Strategy Edit

Present DayEdit

Iceland Iceland, due to it's poor size, economy, and location is a tricky country to play as. You, however, will never be the target of the AI's aggressiveness.

Iceland can into NorwayEdit

You have the "Nationalism" causes-beli on all the other Scandinavian nations, so you can use that to your advantage. For example, if Sweden Sweden destroys Norway Norway in a war, that would be your time to strike. Save up cash to hire mercenaries to invade Norway Norway (assuming they have little to no army/navy left). Improve relations with Sweden Sweden, Denmark Denmark, and Great Britain Great Britain to avoid them going hostile or forming a coalition (very unlikely). Once you have all of the required Norwegian provinces, you will be able to form Norway Norway!

Uniting ScandinaviaEdit

After you have formed Norway Norway, you will gain permanent claims over the entire country (unless you're still Iceland Iceland, and you want an even harder challenge). Finland Finland, Russia Russia, or one of the Baltic nations, would be very helpful allies for annexing Denmark Denmark and Sweden Sweden. The same strategy applies: fabricate, declare war (nationalism CB), annex. Keep this up and eventually you will have Scandinavia Scandinavia in no time!
