Can we use alternative leaders (and maybe also different domestic history) or is it just the tech that is Alt-his?

If you want to tweak the history with steampunk, that’s fine but don’t stray too far from irl governments.

Of course not, I was more thinking that with other leaders, a neutral country perhaps feels like it can join the war.

Honestly, just look up something like Sweden army size 1914 and estimate from there.

Thanks! Will edit it tomorrow. What source did you use?

On another topic, what's best, to start as neutral or be a Central Power already? Researching numbers I instead found interesting stuff about how the Swedes were given German offers to join as early as 1910.

Historical navy size: https://www.naval-encyclopedia.com/ww1/swedish-navy
You’re welcome! It’ll be better to start a month after the war has begun, to give Russian troops time to be devoted in Germany and Austria-Hungary.

Hmm...the premise of this rp seems familiar...

Anyway reserve the Republic of China
"The modern revisionists and reactionaries call us Stalinists, thinking that they insult us and, in fact, that is what they have in mind. But, on the contrary, they glorify us with this epithet; it is an honor for us to be Stalinists for while we maintain such a stand the enemy cannot and will never force us to our knees.."
-Enver Hoxha-
[__✯_]
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) If you are a Stalinist; put this in your Signature.
