Historical Background[edit]

Denmark is a minor country in northern Europe. It borders the German Reich to the south, and shares a land connection with Sweden. Denmark remained neutral in the First World War, and begins the interwar period in 1936 without any of the political baggage created by that conflict, maintaining a stable constitutional monarchy.

National Spirit[edit]

Denmark does not have any National Spirit in 1936.

Diplomacy[edit]

As a Democratic country, Denmark has slightly positive relations with the same ideology (+10), and more strongly positive relations with countries that share the same ruling party (+20). Denmark has a slightly negative relationship with all Communist, Fascist, and Non-Aligned countries (-10).

Denmark does not have claims or cores on foreign soil.

National Focus[edit]

As of version 1.3, Denmark has the same Focus Tree as all other minor countries.

Politics[edit]

Denmark starts in 1936 as a democracy with elections every four years; the next falls on October 1939. The country begins with the Socialdemokratiet party in power under the leadership of Thorvald Stauning.


Denmark has the following political parties:

Political Party Ideology Popularity Party Leader Country Name Is Ruling?
Socialdemokratiet Democracy Democratic 97% Thorvald Stauning Denmark Yes
Danmarks Kommunistiske Parti (DKP) Communism Communist 2% Aksel Larsen Danish Civil Union no
Danmarks Nationalsocialistiske Arbejderparti (DNSAP) Fascism Fascist 1% Frits Clausen North Sea Empire no
Det Radikale Venstre Neutrality Non-Aligned 0% Peter Rochegune Munch Kingdom of Denmark no

Economy[edit]

Denmark begins the 1936 campaign with a modest 11 factories, but little room to further expand capacity. The Danish mainland has 1 available building slot in Jutland, with another 2 slots open for construction in Iceland. Denmark has access to 10 Aluminum in Jutland.

Military[edit]

Denmark possesses a meager military in 1936. Its 5 army divisions are all on the mainland, stationed in Jutland and Sjaelland. Sjaelland has a level 8 naval base, where the player will find Denmark's 7 naval vessels organized into Der Danske Flåde at the start of 1936. Denmark's Air Force is split into two groups: one wing of 12 fighters at Jutland's level 2 Air Base, and another wing of 22 fighters at Sjaelland's level 6 Air Base.

Denmark's Volunteer Conscription law will make it difficult for the player to initially expand the country's military. In January 1936, the country only has 19.13K free manpower - however, the player can choose to spend 150 Political Power to enact Limited Conscription, and increase that figure to 57.76K.
