History of SamoaEdit
Samoa was colonized by Prussia (later Germany) in 1855. Germany lost Samoa to Great Britain after World War One in 1919 (Treaty of Versailles). During World War Two, British Samoa was occupied by Japan for almost two years before the British were able to liberate the island. After the WW2 was over, a few years later on November 25th, 1947, Great Britain granted New Zealand the right to administer Samoa. However, in 1962, New Zealand granted Samoa its independence and right to self-govern. Today, the Samoan culture has been influenced by its past Anglo administrations and by the United States due to the American owned island of American Samoa, which is very close to Samoa in terms of distance.
Samoa has, despite being a OPM island, an easy route for expansion in the Pacific, Asia, and South America. Take a loan to build up a few transport ships and regiments to invade Tonga, Fiji, Micronesia, etc. In other words, conquering all of the Polynesian countries will be quite easy. Once all of the Polynesian states have been annexed; you should have enough strength to prepare an invasion of Papua New Guinea. Once you declare war them; declare war on East Timor. Their allies (if they have even have any) will be laughably weak compared to your Army and Naval dominance.
