The fate of Germany is still up in the air for who won the civil war, but there are tons of little areas were SS and Heer units got stuck and just became warlords

So, where would you like to go?


Could you give me some examples?


Some units survived hidden out in the vast wilderness of the former Soviet union, the deserts of Libya, the mountains of Algeria and Tunisia, and Britain ( though England has already been claimed )

Is this acceptable? The main idea is the Greek Communist partisans take advantage of the chaos in Germany and successfully drive the Germans from their country. Bolstered by support from Tito, they aid the Turkish Communists in toppling the Turkish government, in 1950, after assassinating Inonu and throwing the country into chaos. They merge their two nations, setting up the capital in Constantinople. By 1955, the Byzantine Socialist Republic has pushed Conservative Turkish forces to Van in the East. The BSR also did the same thing in Bulgaria, joining the Communists there to itself. They're naturally close allies of Yugoslavia.

NS name: Labstoska
Nation Name: the Thelemic commonwealth of Britain
Location in the world ( preferably fill in the map, but descriptions will suffice ): southern England
Leader/s:
Prime minister: Michael Garret
Lord Prophet: Konrad Adler
Population:
Political Stability on a scale of 1 to 5( 5 being in a state of total peace and order, 1 being total chaos ): 3
Description of Government: The commonwealth is a theodemocratic, aristocratic republic with a legislative branch divided into two in bicameral system; the first branch is the Baron's house comprised of members of the new British aristocracy, it consists of 56 members of the nobility who are appointed to their positions by the Prime Minister. All bills of actual importance originate and pass in the Baron's house and all bills concerning taxation and monetary affairs are completely immune from the any attempts by the Spiritual congress to delay or amend the bill. The second of the two legislative branches is the Spiritual congress comprised of various priests who have been elected to their position by the people of the commonwealth, over the years the spiritual congress has slowly been stripped of their powers to the point where their only remaining power is their ability to delay or amend most of the bills that are put forward by the Baron's house.

As for the Executive branch it is lead by the prime minister who is the head of government, a prime minister is elected every 4 years however there are no limits on how long a prime minister may remain in power leading to prime minister Garret being the leading figure for the commonwealth for as long as it has existed, this is helped by the fact that the voting process itself is heavily monitored. Going down to the regional level the various counties of the commonwealth are run by a member of the new British aristocracy operating in a neo feudalist system however this aristocracy chafe under the restrictions and laws put in place by the prime minister and his government.

Finally as for the matter of citizenship, it comes hand in hand with the Thelemic faith if one wishes to gain citizenship they must convert to the Thelemic faith and prove their devoutness to the faith by performing 4 years of national service, either in the military or within the national reconstruction administration. Citizenship itself comes with a number of boons which include the ability to vote, the right to get married and ability to access the commonwealth's social welfare programs.

Economic prosperity on a scale of 1 to 5( 5, it's like the war never even happened! 1, dark ages misery ):3
Agrarian or industrialized state: Agrarian
Role of Women in society ( likely to have changed in many more war torn areas ): Due to the fact that the South of England hadn't faced much action since the first occupation and through the influence of the SS in the region the role of women have remained largely the same as in pre-war England however a growing suffrage movement has been developing throughout the Urban regions of the Commonwealth and some concessions have been made in the agrarian workpalce

Average soldier on a scale of 1 to 5 ( 5, your an Army Ranger. 1, you're a 13 year old with a rifle): 3
A general run down of your equipment ( as well as anything of note ): The military equipment of the Commonwealth is a curious mix between the newer weapons being built by the Commonwealth armouries and the weapons left over from the German occupation, most of the German equipment can be replaced at a considerable cost however the German's heavier pieces of equipment such as their Panzer divisions are irreplaceable and are usually only brought out to intimidate the enemy or when Commonwealth armed forces are simply unable to break through an enemy position.

Enemies?: Any opposing state upon the British isles or any other nation who dares to interfere with the isles shall be considered an enemy of the Commonwealth's true will

Nation's history: The German occupation of Southern England was ,like every part of British history, filled with duality. The German occupying forces had met with much less resistance than they had faced in the East in fact they were actively able to gather collaborating members of the populace and form a puppet government of former BUF members granting the British a modicum of autonomy and so in one hand the Germans ruled with a velvet glove yet the other was a clenched iron fist as even despite the fact that German officers found Southern England far more amicable then many other occupied territories, various resistance and guerrilla groups continuously harassed and destabilised the southern administration and in response the occupying German forces would crack down immensely hard, often these crackdowns were a form of catharsis for officers returning from the London or Northern front. It was under these conditions where the Thelemic faith flourished, originally developed by Alastair Cowley in Egypt based around the idea that each Human has one true unseen will which shall determine their path in life, this idea was manipulated by both resistance groups and the occupying Germans, to the resistance groups the idea of a true will meant that it was up for every man to determine there own destiny in life , to the occupying German forces the true will was something that could be determined by the government and allow everyone their own assigned place within society. A combination of people loosing faith in Christianity after the occupation, the pressure from both government and resistance forces and the preaching of Alastair Cowley lead to a huge spread of the faith throughout southern England and by 1945 various influential members of the faith congregated in the first Aeon convention to decide on the matter of how the faith ought to be managed and on the more obscure parts of the doctrine.

By 1946 the faith had established itself as a majority religion throughout the South of England particularly along the Southern coast, Alastair Cowley had set up a number of temples across the occupied areas and a dedicated priesthood had been formed, by 1946 a good deal of the occupation zone had collapsed into anarchy leading to the Thelemic church being the only source of order in these areas. When the year 1947 dawned the German Reich had begun tearing itself to pieces and the occupation zone's leadership were equally divided various parts of the zone had begun breaking off with general's forming their own cliques and resistance groups forming their own independent states. It was the perfect scenario for the Thelemic church to step in and re-establish order across the isles, plan's were about to be put in motion when the unimaginable happened, Alastair Cowley died. The death had been completely natural yet that still didn't stop vicious accusations between the various factions of the church and by late 1947 the Thelemic church just like the occupation zone had collapsed. Across the various towns, counties and cities of the a new order had arisen, individuals who had a modicum of military, economic or social control quickly used it dominate their local community often ruling as despots. These people be they former German officers, charismatic landowners, or religious zealots became known across the south as barons, this was the first step taken in re-establishing the feudal order.

One baron of particular importance is Micheal Garrret, the self proclaimed governor of Portsmouth. Out of the cities of England Portsmouth was probably the one that fared best through the occupation and war, although initially the city had faced the devastation expected of foreign invasion after the city was quickly developed as a hub for German activity as the city's ports were quickly repaired so that vast amount of German weapons and soldiers could be imported from the continent and over time it was made into a major supply hub for the entire British campaign, it was also one of the largest hives of British resistance groups and for as many supplies that were sent from the city towards the front at least a quarter of them were smuggled to the resistance. Michael Garret was an influential businessman with ties to practically every faction within the city with ambitions beyond his station, when the occupation broke down so did the social order within the city with the German forces gunning down citizens on the street and the resistance embarked on an all out war against the German occupiers, the citizenry simply hunkered down and waited for the bloodshed to end. Both sides ground the other down in a pointless battle to the point where both side had every intention to make peace yet no one could swallow their pride and make the first offer, Michael Garret a man who had made a hefty profit from selling supplies to both factions saw an opportunity both factions were lukewarm towards him and he was influential enough to respected by them so he stepped forth and offered to mediate a peace treaty. The talks ended with the establishment of a united Portsmouth city state with Garret, who had managed to garner the support of the local thelemic sect, weaselling his way to the top of the pecking order. Garret forever ambitious was not satisfied with merely owning Portsmouth, he was remarkably long sighted for a baron and knew that there were many factions out there that would cut England up and enslave her people and there was only one man allowed to do that: Garret.

Using the weapons left over from the last weapons shipments from the continent, Garret began preparing an army, interestingly Garret did not design his army with practicality in mind but rather that it would have a massive intimidation factor. Garret believed that the baron's power bases were so unstable that he could simply wave a big stick and say ' I'll preserve your power but you work for me now'. By 1949 Garret's army set forth to a surprisingly large amount of success and by the end of the year Wessex had been secured and the first states of the Commonwealth had been incorporated, Garret had managed to the favour of many barons by granting them significant privileges and giving them a huge part in the new Commonwealth government in the Baron's house yet Garret still found difficulty in swaying the British people to his cause of a more aristocratic reunification, the solution presented itself once more in the form of the Thelemic church. During the Baron years the Thelemic faith had slowly managed to piece itself back together under the leadership of a former SS officer known as Konrad Adler proclaiming himself to be the protégée of Alastair Cowely himself, the Thelemic church was still widely respected and revered throughout the South and if Garret could gain it's support it would almost guarantee the stability of his new state. Garret gained that support but at a huge cost, Adler had demanded that church would receive a role in government and that Adler himself was to become the head of state albeit at a ceremonial role. Garret spent the next few years developing the Commonwealth's military into a true fighting force and wrenching power back from the Thelemic church. By 1952 Garret had brought both Cornwall and Kent into the commonwealth and had set up the national reconstruction authority to bring their industry into line with Wessex. Now the Commonwealth stands ready to bring their faith to all corners of Britannia and to protect all Britons from foreign influence. Never again shall we be slaves!

All bills of actual importance originate and pass in the Baron's house and all bills concerning taxation and monetary affairs are completely immune from the any attempts by the Spiritual congress to delay or amend the bill. The second of the two legislative branches is the Spiritual congress comprised of various priests who have been elected to their position by the people of the commonwealth, over the years the spiritual congress has slowly been stripped of their powers to the point where their only remaining power is their ability to delay or amend most of the bills that are put forward by the Baron's house.

As for the Executive branch it is lead by the prime minister who is the head of government, a prime minister is elected every 4 years however there are no limits on how long a prime minister may remain in power leading to prime minister Garret being the leading figure for the commonwealth for as long as it has existed, this is helped by the fact that the voting process itself is heavily monitored. Going down to the regional level the various counties of the commonwealth are run by a member of the new British aristocracy operating in a neo feudalist system however this aristocracy chafe under the restrictions and laws put in place by the prime minister and his government.

Nation's history: The Great Depression would hit Scandinavia very hard (much harder than in our world), resulting in much more support for both sides of the political spectrum, an influence which survived well into the war, as well as a losing in faith for the various governments by the people, particularly in Sweden. In late 1939, at the advent of the Winter War, Prince Gustaf Adolf, Duke of Västerbotten, declared his support for the Finnish against the Soviet Union, saying that "Sweden was behind them," earning him a rather less-than respectable opinion from staunch-neutralist Social Democrats and Communists. That same year, Gustaf, despite the disagreement of the King and his own father, went to fight in and for Finland against the Soviets as a volunteer. Seeing one of their princes go to fight for what many perceived as "Nordic Sovereignty" gave the prince much more positive support and favour from both the common people and the right wing, as well as inspiring many more people to also volunteer to fight in Finland. Among them was popular politician Sven Olov Lindholm, leader of the Nyvälde Partei, a large right-wing party representing the new ideology of Nyskandinav, which only inspired even more people to volunteer to fight in Finland.

Gustaf would soon prove himself a very capable soldier and tactician, fighting on the frontlines alongside the common soldiery, rising in popularity and earning favor and commendation from the Finnish and fellow volunteers as well as notoriety among the Soviets, proving himself in battle after battle and rising through the ranks (as he requested he be placed in a low enough rank as to fight on the front lines). It was during this time that he met Lindholm in person (rather than in public displays or rallies), and quickly grew to become friends with him, as Gustaf grew to be enchanted with Lindholm's ideology of Nyskandinav. This, alongside his time on the frontline, made him develop a potent hatred of both Communism and the Soviets. As the war progressed, Gustaf sent messages back to Sweden, begging the government to send more aid to Finland in the form of weapons, supplies and even an expeditionary force of regular soldiers. Though the Swedish Government refused, it earned him massive amounts of more respect from the Finnish.

When the Winter War ended, and Gustaf and the Swedish volunteers returned to Sweden, he was welcomed back as a hero by both the common people and the military, being seen by the people as actively trying to secure the safety of Scandinavia against the Communists to the East. Gustaf began entering the realm of politics seriously, preaching about how he saw the endless hordes of Communists, the savage brutality they showed against himself and his fellow soldiers, and how all needed to contribute to stopping the red tide, and therefore Sweden needed to prepare for war. He also preached about how they needed to restore Sweden's former glory as a European superpower, not only to protect against the Communists and others who would threaten Scandinavian sovereignty and independence but to eventually restore order in Europe. These speeches stirred up both a sense of nationalism and somewhat of a red scare in Sweden, which led to a boost in popularity for Gustaf Adolf. This mixed with the support of the military and much of the right-wing (predominantly Lindholm and his followers) led to Gustaf becoming very politically influential. This, however, did not go well with the neutralist government and the Social Democrats, who publically condemned Gustaf as a subversive and a warmonger.

Some of the more "radical" (radical being used in an ironic and broad sense, considering these are mostly Social Democrats) elements of the neutralist government (including many socialists and suspected of being communist supported) even demanded that Gustaf be disinherited as a prince of Sweden, and should be arrested immediately as a potential revolutionary against the government. This shocked many of the people, as the audacity of demanding that not only should a war hero, but also a Prince of the Royal Family and second in line for the throne be arrested made many people (to say the least) quite angry. The fact that much of the Swedish government didn't even attempt to counter these ideas made the people lose faith in the government even further. The neutral Social Democrat government and the Communists had fully expected the current King, Gustaf V, to attempt to curb his son's ambitions and rhetoric. Though to their surprise, the King did nothing. In truth though King Gustaf V and Gustaf Adolf (heir, not duke), though they heavily disagreed with Duke Gustaf Adolf's rhetoric and beliefs, thought that acting in favour of either side at all would only lead to further instability in the country, and so decided to keep silent on the issue. Though many misinterpreted this silence. Much of the Right and the populace thought that this meant the King, in fact, approved of his grandson's rhetoric and beliefs and (because of Gustaf Vs own popularity) only helped in public support for the young duke.

Eventually, these rumours started getting out of control, to the point where there were some rumours that Gustaf V was preparing to actively support his son and (therefore) the Right wing. This extremely worried the Swedish Communists and the rest of the radical left, who thought that this would lead to the Right gaining power in Sweden and forming a government similar to Hitler's Germany or Mussolini's Italy. Furthermore, in 1941, the Communists had received rumours/information that Germany had been sending masses of soldiers East, towards the Soviet border. This led to many in the left worrying that if war were to occur between the Soviet Union and the Axis, that Sweden would join Germany's side and help invade through the Finnish border (where Finland probably would also join such a war). Thus adding a, though not superpower level, formidable and relatively advanced enemy against Russia (some speculate that the information was provided by the NKVD, in hopes that the Swedish Communists would act). With their own power relatively strong yet quickly waning, paired with the increasing popularity of the Right and the ever-ticking clock towards an invasion of Russia, the Swedish Communists thought that it was now or never and that they had to take over Sweden as soon as possible.

In the 15th of February 1941, King Gustaf V would organise a party/meeting in the Stockholm Palace. The party would not only include the Royal Family and friends of the Royal Family, but also many officials of the Swedish government and Riksdag. During the middle of the party, in which most of the guests were in the Ballroom, a bomb would explode, killing almost everyone in the ballroom, and burn down a part of the Stockholm Palace. Among the dead were both King Gustaf V and his son, Per Albin Hansson (leader of the Social Democratic Party and Prime Minister of Sweden), Per Edvin Sköld (Minister for Defence) and Christian Günther (Minister of Foreign Affairs). Shortly afterwards, hordes of Communist party members would flood the streets, calling for the resignation of the government. At the same time, armed followers and Communist militias flooded the streets, raiding political opposition strongholds and attacking government buildings. This was the "Röd Månad" (Red Month) in which the radical left would come together and attempt to overthrow the government in a Revolution. Gustaf Adolf (who was thought to have been at the party, but at the last minute had left to attend a meeting between various leaders of the Right), hearing of this sudden rebellion, immediately went to work.

As he was still a high ranking officer in the military (just put in the reserve group), he immediately contacted various military garrisons across Sweden to install martial law and move to put down the Communist Uprising. When it occurred, the various leaders of the right decision to unite against this new Communist threat and band together, practically swearing their loyalty to Sven Olov Lindholm, who then proceeded to swear his allegiance to Gustaf Adolf. Soon Sweden devolved into civil war, with the Loyalists (made up of the military, police, and Right-Wing militias) cooperating against the various Left Wing Rebel groups. Seeing that Gustaf was perhaps one of the only driving forces that were beating back the Communists, the remnants of the Swedish Government gave Gustaf emergency supreme powers. Although the Communists Rebels were more numerous, the Loyalists were better armed, organised, trained and led. After 4 weeks, the Communists forces had mostly been beaten back and defeated, and by the end of the month, the Revolution was over, with the last of the Communist remnants being swept up and most of their leaders being executed for treason.

Still wielding emergency powers, Gustaf would immediately work to repair the damage done during the Red Month, repairing infrastructure and providing welfare aid to the civilian population. If Gustaf was popular before, he was practically worshipped by the people now, being called Sweden's Saviour after the main government failed to do anything. A referendum was launched by the people to reform the government and create an Absolute Monarchy: with Gustaf at its end. The vote would overwhelmingly be in favour of it (despite the objections of the remnant neutral government, though they barely held any more power). With great reluctance, the remnant of the Swedish Government would agree, and named Gustaf Adolf as Absolute Monarch: the first in over 223 years. A grand coronation would occur, with Gustaf naming declaring himself "Karolus Gustav VI of the New Swedish Kingdom" (in honour of Charles XII, which he fashioned himself around). With Gustav in power, and his own men now operating key positions in the government, Gustav moved to implement his policies, starting mass industrialisation and remilitarisation efforts. He would once again divert funding towards the military and build it up once more, as well as manufacturing, and building new infrastructure (using the resources of the now dead Communists and many aristocrats and politicians that were killed). He would also discreetly organise the dissolving of the more extreme right wing and racial radicals of his Right-Wing coalition that would prove threatening towards his policies, with the dissolution of the New Swedish Nationalist Socialist Party and the arresting of various Nationalist Socialist leaders like Birger Furugård and Martin Ekström cementing Nyskandinav, Monarchism, Italian Fascism and Nationalism as the primary ideologies of the Swedish political right.

When the Continuation War and Operation Barbarossa began in June, Gustav sent tens of thousands of soldiers to the Finnish Border to support his fellow Scandinavian ally and declared that Sweden would stand with Finland against the Red Menace. The British, failing to convince the Swedish to cease support for Finland, declared war on the young Kingdom, leading to Sweden to fully put their weight behind the support of the Axis Powers (but more Finland than anything else), finally supplying Germany with all the iron they required. Germany (and especially Hitler and Himmler), ecstatic at having another nation join their cause (and one that was predominantly made from the "superior race"), started supporting the Swedish military effort, giving them large amounts of armaments as well as sending advisors to serve in their military. In Finland, the Swedish provided much humanitarian aid to their neighbour (as it had not fully healed from the Winter War) and supplied Finland with more arms. That, mixed with the Swedish soldiers fighting alongside the Finns, led to Finnish opinion of the Swedes to rise, and the popularity of Gustav in Finland to increase further.

The Swedish and Finnish combined push, supported by the Germans, allowed for much of Soviet Karelia and other Soviet territories near the Finnish border to fall to the Finns. The siege of Leningrad would be long and tough, but with a combined Swedish-Finnish-German effort, the city fell by November 7th, with Soviet troops advancing alongside other Axis Forces beyond Scandinavia. And when the Soviet Union was finally pushed back beyond the Urals, the Scandinavian nations celebrated VE Day along with their German allies. However, this was when cracks in the Finnish/Swedish-German Alliance began to show. For one, the Fino-Swedish Alliance and the Germans started disputing about control of territory, especially in Leningrad, as the Germans wanted to have administrative control of all Soviet territories despite the Fino-Swedes claim of the amount of blood they had sacrificed to gain the land. Furthermore, German troops in Finland that were fighting alongside them refused to leave, and the Germans not only wanted to add soldiers to that "garrison," but wanted to base troops in Sweden too. Paired with the fact that Gustav and Mannerheim (who had assumed control of Finland after a vote) had secretly been letting in Untermensch, remnants of the Danish and Norwegian governments, and other enemies of the Nazi Regime who sought asylum (since the Fino-Swedish Empire was significantly less racially radical then Germany) (excluding Communists of course) meant that tensions were rising.

Fearing the potential for a German invasion, the two Scandinavian nations proposed to unite, as to help organise and concentrate their combined military and resources. The decision was heavily supported by the populace and, in late-1943, the two nations united into the Fino-Swedish Empire, with Mannerheim as Minister for War and Grand Marshal (somewhat equivalent to supreme commander) of the Fino-Swedish Military (Mannerheim would be quite essential as he heavily helped organise and overall improve the state of the new army, allowing it to become a very formidabble fighting force) and with Gustav VI as Emperor. For the first time in over 134 years, Finland and Sweden were united under one banner. At the request of the Germans, the Fino-Swedish Empire began sending troops to support Axis Forces across the continent, with Fino-Swedish troops fighting in the invasion of Britain. Funnily enough, despite all this, the Fino-Swedish Empire had yet to have officially declared war on the US, and vice versa. This led to Fino-Swedish soldiers refusing to actively fight US troops in any of the theatres, and still refused to even at the urging of Germany. This would lead to Fino-Swedish soldiers only being deployed in fronts where the troops were predominantly British. Any US troops that were encountered or captured were allowed to be let go, leading to many awkward moments between the Axis and Allied Forces, which only angered the Germans.

By 1946, the atomic bombings of York and Sicily, the execution of Von Brauchtisch, and the massive Slavic Rebellion that occurred in German territory, not to mention the amount of losses suffered by the Axis (with the Fino-Swedish Empire losing a hefty amount of men at this point), had led to the Fino-Swedish Empire both losing faith and freezing their relationship with Adolf Hitler (atomic bombing your own ally tends to do that). Seeing that Germany seemed to be on it's last legs, and seeing Italy leave the Axis Alliance and be faced with almost no retribution because it, led to the Fino-Scandinavian Empire pulling back it's troops from the various fronts across Europe and declaring it's neutrality, contacting the Allies to negotiate a ceasefire (which the British happily accepted). At the same time, Gustav planned his next moves: mainly the liberation of all of Scandinavia. In secret, Gustav negotiated with both the Danish-Norwegian Resistance and the Danish-Norwegian Puppet Regimes (who at this point were also collaborating with their respective resistance groups, seeing how weak Germany was becoming) for the liberation of both countries from German occupation. The opportunity occurred in 1947, with the assassination of Hitler and the massive Civil War that followed between the SS and the Wehrmacht.

Only shortly after the Civil War broke out, both the Puppet Regimes of Denmark and Norway declared their breaking away from German rule and declared themselves independent, with both Rebel Government and Resistance Forces rushing to attack German and still Loyal Collaborationist strongholds across both countries. At the same time, hundreds of thousands of Fino-Swedish troops rushed into Occupied Denmark and Norway to help secure these positions. Eventually, the remaining German-Loyal Strongholds were surrounded and given two choices: either surrender without fighting, in which case they would be spared and allowed to return to Germany, or fight, in which case they'd all die. As you would imagine, most of the garrisons chose to surrender and were allowed to cross the various borders back to German territory as promised. Surprisingly, a rather large portion of the German Garrison force even chose to stay in Scandinavia, with some even joining the Fino-Swedish Military, mainly to escape the chaos that was the German Civil War. Because of this a lot of German equipment, vehicles and weapons were seized. Among the most prized was the German Bismarck-Class Battleship Tirpitz, which had been captured by Rebel and Fino-Swedish Forces before it could leave port at its base in Tromsø.

After Norway and Denmark were liberated, many former-collaborators (including many of those who had joined the Rebellion) fled to the Fino-Swedish Empire. The newly established temporary governments in both countries would demand that the Empire hand them over. The Fino-Swedes would make a compromise, as they only handed over the confirmed war criminals (such as Siegfried Fehmer, Gerhard Flesch and Ludwig Runzheimer) or those they considered bad enough, however, they refused to hand over several other officials, who they saw as not having any actual real war crimes, including Vidkun Quisling himself. To compensate, the Fino-Swedes organised a massive humanitarian effort to Norway and Denmark, as well as gave them large amounts of money for victims during the war. This, along with the Danish King's Frederick IX connection to Sweden via his marriage to Ingrid, and Norwegian Prince Olav V's connection via his marriage to Märtha, overall satisfied the Norwegian and Danish governments and people, and also made them rather popular because of the aid (despite their refusal to handover Quisling) (after the death of Mannerheim, Quisling would be assigned the post of Minister of War, based mostly on his previous experience in the post).

But this gave way to another problem, as both Denmark and Norway pretty much had to rebuild from the ground up, leaving it vulnerable. Reports were already talking about how rogue German Army units were raiding Danish border towns, and that rogue British and German warships were doing the same to the Norwegian coastline. Both Denmark and Norway did not have the resources or the troops to defend themselves. Many in their respective governments had thought that their respective armies in exile who had managed to join the Allies would return home, but with the British, all but in anarchy and the US pulled out of the war, there was no hope for them to return home. Not only that, but both Denmark and Norway had little choices when it came to asking for aid or trade, as Germany was in their Civil War, the US had returned to a state of isolationism, and the British were, once again, all but in chaos. This meant that both Denmark and Norway heavily relied on the Fino-Swedish Empire and their resources. Both Denmark and Norway requested that the Fino-Swedish Empire send more aid and that they also get troops from the Fino-Swedish Army to help defend their lines, but Sven Lindholm (who at this point was Minister of Foreign Affairs) claimed that the Empire was already busy on their Finnish Border against groups of partisans and rogue Germans (which was semi-true, but not as severe as claimed), unable to send further resources, and that the only way they could effectively send both Denmark and Norway more aid and soldiers were if they were to permit much closer political and economic ties between the three countries, allowing significantly more cooperation. In other words, Lindholm basically said: "We won't help you unless you join us."

Desperate with little choices, and with urging by popular figures in their countries (such as the aforementioned princes), the recently reformed governments would relent, and open up negotiations. After 2 years of heavy diplomacy, in 1949, Norway and Denmark officially joined the Fino-Swedish Empire, forming the Imperial Federation of Scandinavia. Officially, it was a centralised Federation of the four countries (Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Finland), with a combined government, a parliament, and a council to decide matters of state, with representatives from each country. Unofficially, this political sphere is dominated mainly by Sweden and Gustav VI, who though doesn't exactly control the same amount of supreme power he holds in Sweden, he still holds significant political power in the rest. And for the first time in 426 years, Scandinavia was once again under one flag, with Gustav VI at its head (earning him yet another title to his already impressive list).

The new Imperial Federation would thrive for the next few years, with the mostly undamaged resources of Sweden being used to rebuild Finland, Denmark and Norway, as well as a growing economy and a strong industrial powerbase. In 1951, an independent Estonia (having gained independence via a rogue Estonian Legion), under constant attack by various Slavic Partisans and rogue and not so rogue German Army Units (with the Wehrmacht considering them sided with the SS and the SS considering them traitors for declaring independence) would join the Federation to gain security (the attacks by main SS and Wehrmacht units would cease, with both factions unwilling to attack the Federation). By 1955, the Imperial Federation was now a formidable and quickly growing power on the European stage. Though what the future holds, remains yet to be seen.

Anything you'd like to add?:
-In this world, Sven Olov Lindholm never abandoned his Italian Fascist Sympathies in favour of Nazism
-In this world, Sven Olov Lindholm and Per Engdahl would work together to create a new ideology named Nyskandinav (New Scandinavianism). The ideology would be heavily influenced by Scandinavian/Swedish Nationalism, Italian Fascism and Strasserism. It promotes authoritarianism, nationalism and militarism, yet also has many progressive ideas such as gender equality and non-racial ideas. The ideology promotes cultural and ideological superiority rather than the racial and genetic superiority used by Nazism (even frowning down on it, seeing it as the simple and easy excuse instead of the best one). The ideology would create the Nyvälde Partei (New Empire Party), headed by Lindholm and Engdahl, which would quickly gain popularity, as those who hated Communists and the radical left yet also feared or didn't fit in the views of the racial extremism of the other Right-Wingers would find themselves at home in it.

Not to be hostile or anything, but I reserved it first, so technically I have first right (you should probably make a list)

The guy who reserved Finland hasn't contacted me yet, maybe we could come to an agreement

And according to the post he made i'm fairly certain he just reserved the SS Latvian Legion, not Latvia, but once again we could come to an agreement if he contacts me
