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).
