Strategy Edit

Present DayEdit

Sweden starts off as a member of the European Union European Union. Your neighbor, Norway Norway, however, is not apart of the EU. This means you will receive much less aggressive expansion because the Norwegians are not members of the EU.

The Scandinavian RouteEdit

In order to form Scandinavia Scandinavia, you need to take out Norway Norway and Denmark Denmark. This should be relatively easy for you to do because you are quite a bit stronger than either of the two countries. Always fabricate and then declare war using the "Nationalism" causes-beli to take the most land for the lowest AE. Also declare on Iceland Iceland using the same causes-beli; they will never have any allies and can be annexed with absolutely no resistance. Once Scandinavia Scandinavia is formed, you should have claims all over Finland Finland. If you are to go after them, make sure that your military alliance is stronger than Russia Russia's, or that you have friendly relations with the Russia Russians, because bordering them can cause them to go hostile and desire your provinces (potentially rivaling you in the process).
