After nearly 5 years of brutal fighting between the European Union and the Russian Federation, a depression has gripped the Western World. The EU has been decimated and requires a huge amount of natural resources to rebuild their former glory. Scandinavia is the obvious solution being one of the last places in Europe capable of maintaining financial stability. Sweden and Norway agree to sign a alliance with the EU and form the SADC (Scandinavian Armed Defense Coalition).
Russia, although rich in resources from Asia, notices the EU's interest in Scandinavia and begins talks with Denmark and Finland. The two nations form the DFF (Danish-Finish Federation) with Russia. And so hostilities begin. In December 2027, Denmark invades Sweden with complete surprise triggering the start of the Scandinavian Wars. Norway joins in on Sweden's side but provides little support. A few weeks later, Finland also attacks Sweden by launching amphibious landings at Gotland and Österrsund, both Swedish territories. Both Denmark and Finland claim that they invaded Sweden and Norway because they were desperate for resources.
Another threat has grown in the north. Iceland has isolated itself from the rest of Europe since the end of the Second World War in 1949 and has secretly been building military strength for an invasion of Greenland, Norway and Svalbard to try to build a new Norse Empire. Iceland also has secret nuclear missile bases in the Arctic circle that pose a threat to the entire Northern Hemisphere.
Sweden - Sweden is one of the only countries left in Europe that has financial stability. A member of both the EU and the SADC. Sweden has the largest and most advanced army in Europe.
Norway - Norway is not a member of the EU so wasn' t crippled due to the Russo-European War. Only shares it's plentiful resources with Sweden, hence it's financial stability.
Finland - Finland is a close neighbor and friend of Russia. They left the EU before the Russo-European War but still served as a battle ground. The longstanding rivals of Sweden.
Denmark - Denmark was a member of the EU during the War, but left afterwards due to the EU's instability. Desires both Norway and Sweden's resources due to the huge Danish consumption during the War.
Iceland - Iceland has lived in isolation since the end of World War II (1949). They now seek to destroy the rest of the Northern Hemisphere and create a new Norse Empire. Lead by the young and ambitious King Magnús.
Greenland - Greenland has experienced a huge population boom due to the finding of plentiful natural resources. It's wealth is spectacular and it's military is high-tech.
Russia - Russia came out victorious during the Russo-European War. It continues to sustain itself from the resources of Siberia to the East. Russia has now turned it's attention to the conflict in Scandinavia and events closer to home.
