1920: The Window to Africa

Co-OP: Sanabel

IC

MAP

POD: 1884




The day is January 1st, 1920. The world is a changed place after the First Great War, where most of the fighting took place in Africa and France. Portugal, Belgium, and France come to war over the Congo in 1884, dragging their allies into it. Portugal and the United Kingdom, with the help of an empowered Germany, overtake northern and eastern France and pushing the French to the interior. Next, the Occitans declare their own state and join the Portugal-Britain alliance. The Russians, in the process of formulating an alliance with the French, are not pleased. They attack the Triple Alliance of Italy, Germany, and Austria-Hungary, taking modern Poland and the former Czechoslovakia, while also granting the Hungarians independence. This halts the German war machine in France, and they leave Paris and the Alps to defend Berlin, which is captured by the Soviets, causing the German Empire to topple and be recreated as the Prussian Empire (which is not truly Prussian, holding modern Germany). The French slowly regain territory, cultimating in the capture of Paris in 1888. The Treaty of Paris was signed, in which the French regain all captured territories. However, the treaty does not specify the Occitan issue, and they retained free reign over southern France for quite some time.

By then, Italy had left the alliance and was focused on carving out their own empire in Africa. But this was to be contested by the Ottoman Empire, who defended their territories in Tunisia and Libya, bringing them to a naval war in Greece. This war was declared by the Italians a stalemate despite the Italians suffering major losses. Elsewhere, Morocco had declared independence and was now a regional power, Sudan was ceded to the Ottomans, Somalia was united under the Majerteens, Ethiopia expanded into Kenya, West Africa was still a plethora of Kingdoms, and Germany has made a name for themselves as dominant imperial master despite losing key ground in Europe. The Russian Tsardom collapsed and gave way to a new Socialist union in 1905, paving the way for future leftist revolutions across Europe. Prussia has escalated world tension by taking back their name of the Second German Empire.

In 1910, the Union of States was founded in Zurich by France, Germany, Britain, Russia, Portugal, and Italy. It was aimed at stabilizing the damaged world after the death of millions, but it failed in 1919 when France occupied Occitania, a direct violation of UoS rules. It dissolved six days ago. The last relic of the UoS is Sweden's ownership of the Congo, deemed appropriate as it was the largest neutral power (other than Italy, which was deemed too imperialistic). Britain tried to revoke its ownership after it uncovered blatant human rights abuses in 1917, but the Swedens refused and currently occupying the Congo with an iron fist, now leaning torwards the "Triple Entente" of France, Russia, and Spain.

Now, all of Europe stands on the brink of war again after France occupied Occitania in 1919 and allied with Spain to create the ultimate alliance of powers between France, Russia, and Spain against Portugal, Britain, and Germany. In Africa, the Moroccan empire is becoming more and more territorial, engaging in small skirmishes with Spanish, French and Turkish forces on all sides of them. Germany is also readying to capture Alsace-Lorraine and Belgium by any means possible from the French.

Hm, understood. On that note then, is your absense of a claim on Algeria on purpose, or a mistake? Algerian coast would defs be a target for colonization if ignored by the French.

Ah, i see. I'm starting to see a vision of Italian ambitions on the mainland, after being thwarted abroad. I'd really dig an Austrian puppet-state with territories in the Balkans, though I'd need to do some research to see how such an Austrian collapse/Italian expansion situation would play out.

Application:

NS Name: Sanabel
Nation Name: The Kingdom of Sweden
Head of State: Gustaf V
Head of Government: PM Gerhard Louis De Geer

Territory: Sweden, Norway, Former Begian Congo
Puppets/Dominions/Protectorates (If any, name and territory): None

Government Form: Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy
Ideology: Liberal-conservatism, progressivism, social democracy
Foreign Policy: Maintains strict military neutrality, but is historically biased towards Germany and Britain. Despite this, it is a major neutral power.
Domestic Policy: The country is very socially progressive, with ubiquitous labour unions, and workers benefits. Large statist culture, that is growing. Swedish is mostly used, but Norwegian nationalism has kept the identity alive even within the federalized state, which is accepted by the Swedish government.
Civil Freedoms /10: 7
Political Freedoms /10: 7
Economic Freedoms /10: 6

Military Size: 46,000 Army Active Duty, 45,000 Army Reserve. 5,000 Air Force Active Duty. 35,000 Navy/Coast Guard Active Duty. 14,000 Colonial Defense Force.
Military Description: Training and quality are relied upon over numbers. Training is very good, though aside from internal colonial conflicts, the military lacks use, though it is prepared to defend the stance Sweden takes of armed neutrality.
Strengths and Weaknesses: The military is very well trained and equipped. The Swedish Navy and Coastal Defenses are the best in the region, as they have been historically, however they are quite small. Weaknesses are all based in its small size.

Description of Your Nation's Economy: Based around industry, mostly steel producing, etc. Major mining sector, mostly in Norway. Fairly strong economy, strengthened by demand from both sides of the Great War, and resources from the Kongo. Currently contracting due to less demand for Swedish industry post war.
History since 1884:
Basically, Sweden retains Norway through a series of reforms pressured by the Scandinavianist Movement to merge the Swedish and Norwegian parliaments, mints, etc, thereby federalizing the two into the Kingdom of Sweden. It was met with much concern from Norwegian nationalists who had issues with Swedish dominance and foreign policy, so they have formed a major bloc in the Swedish government.

After the Great War, the Congo was offered to Sweden by the Union of States, as Sweden was a neutral power. It was a means to prevent conflict. The Swedish government was apprehensive about accepting, but a slim majority was eked out in the Riksdag, leading to the government's acceptance of the proposal.

Lots of humanitarian development money was set aside, and a large military and governmental presence was sent to the Congo to help facilitate progress and more local involvement in governance, but it was not long until local Swedish officials and settlers came to realize just why the Congo was fought over to begin with. Soon, Swedish companies were exploiting labor and resources, and the local government slipped into corruption. The Riksdag and government in Sweden also turned a blind eye to the blatant mistreatment of land and citizens of the Congo, due to the money from minerals and rubber coming into Sweden. The Swedish Kongo has been awful, with thousands dying, slave labor occurring, and tribal conflicts being exasperated by the local military force to increase power in the vast colony.

You did say brief, and I definitely switched out of tenses due to being tired, but it should suffice.

Please reserve Britain. What colonial possessions in Africa could I expect? I wouldn't want more than historically, I'd just be open to other colonies.

Almost none. You can take India, though.

I see, missed the paragraph about sovereign African powers expanding, Ottomans taking stuff and Germany having a proper Empire. I don't see how India could have been held the same way it was without the Suez canal though.

Make the Suez a joint international venture. Shares can be held between the Ottomans, Germans, British and Italians, split 40%-30%-20%-10%. British reverses in the 19th century could lead to Germany subsuming a portion of its shares, hence Germany holds a larger portion--or vice-versa, Britain has more shares than Germany in exchange for German colonial expansion in Africa.
