While in this endless struggle - see which European nation you will manage to achieve, from Germany to the Soviet Union.

Posted on
  1. After the Great War - were you divided or changed?

    We were divided by the Treaty of Versailles and forced to expand our democratic protocols to nearly all facets of government - which has frustrated the people even more - so we elected a much more nationalistic member to change our government
    We changed from being ruled by central Europe to being our own nation
    We were collected into one single nation, after being divided for years by Austria-Hungary
    We left the Great War and became a completely different nation
    We suffered significantly and have been trying to regain ourselves, since then
    We lost many good men in the war and joined the internaional League of Nations, but we have retained most of our industrial and imperial complex
    We gained some land, in return for the war, but have grown exhausted of our national government and have decided to change it
    Our former friend and ally became a disgusting Marxist degenerate and we've been staving that country off, since then
    We are a completely independent nation, now, and we aim to keep it that way - even going as far as to challenge and fight any who impose on us
    I was formerly Prussian, but we changed into a independent nation and aim to maintain this structure - willingly fighting against the possible bleed over of Reds from the Marxist heartland east of us
    Our nation was made independent from the Treaty of Versailles and have chosen to maintain this construct with efforts to defend it until our last breath
    We gained sufficiently from the Great War and became a much more independent nation, but now are faced with the challenge of growing Marxism across the Southeastern European landscape
    We did not exist until the Treaty of Versaille demanded we be formed from our two leaders, Austria-Hungary and created our central European state, with which we are lost and aggravated by
    We have not changed, since the Great War, nationally, but have grown much more aware of our growing Marxist revolutionaries and have been fighting to stave them off - establishing the third fascism to arise in Europe
  2. Was the Treaty of Versailles justified in its approach?

    It was not our concern, given that we were finishing up our revolution and replacing a lot of our politicians with newer politicians to accomodate our new government
    Yes, it was quite necessary to demonstrate our disgust and disrespect for the countries which wronged us and caused our suffering
    It has been a mixture of feelings, since we are facing ever growing challenges within our nation - some possibly reaching a breaking point
    Yes, it allowed for compensation for my ally and prevented foreign powers from becoming too powerful, while maintaining my infrastructure
    By no means, we weren't even allowed to negotiate the terms which we were forced to agree to
    Somewhat, it allowed for us to gain more territory and granted us some sense of power, but we are dissatisfied with the end result, since our people are still unhappy with the ways things are
    Not really, it wasn't well thought out and it deminished our ally and support against the Red Russians
    We weren't ruled by our own people, so it was justifiable
    Somewhat, it allowed for us to be independent and we are able to be our own nation
    Yes, we are finally free from the controls of central Europe, but are now challenged with keeping this freedom ours
    Yes, it granted us more land and bigger expansion, but it now challenges us to further fight against the hordes of Marxists which threaten us from the East
    It was irrelevant to us, since we were not involved in the Great War and didn't change our dynamics at all
    Somewhat, our freedom was granted to us - but we need more support to defend this
    No, it granted us a freedom which initially seemed well, but we are now uncertain and unhappy about it
  3. What are your thoughts on fascism?

    It is not a well written testament to a nation and threatens our safety
    Westernized fascism is too alienating to allow into our people, but if allowed to grow and prosper from our ideologies - it could be suited to better meet our nation's need
    It is a better alternative to fight Marxism with, but it aspires to be like our former government
    No, it is too challenging of the parliamentary system which we fought so hard to preserve and maintain
    It is a far better alternative to the weak democractic republics which ruled us for a momentary amount of time - devastating the power of unity and nationalism
    We are too uncertain and disappointed to care about our own fascism, since we want to be re-united with our brothers in central Europe
    It is similar to how we used to be ruled, lasting many years before the ideal of democratic power even reached us - it is more acceptable than the Western European perception of politics
    No, it challenges the authority of the people and threatens our many years of free speech and growth - despite our lacking standing presently
    Most of our allies are fascists and we need them in order to maintain our protection
    We will admit to fascism if it defends our homeland and allows for us to maintain our independence
    We are trying to correlate with the fascists of the West to help defends ourselves
    We have adjusted our political platform to fascism, to better fight socialism, and it has worked excellently
    It is becoming more popular, because of its recognition of differing ethnicities and proposes better alternatives to these challenges
    It has faired well, allowing for the elimination of socialists in our nation and preventing and futher complications - direct and indirect
  4. Does heritage play a major role in your nation?

    Yes, it has been the determining factor of who is and isn't actually part of our nation
    Our heritage has been expanded and broadened so much, over the years, we can't justifiably call ourselves 'separate' from other nations through heritage
    It has become the forefront of some of our national issues - which has acted as a method of dividing the population of former nations, within our nation
    None, whatsoever, as it comes down to the political beliefs of those who live within our nation and not so much the heritage which spanwed them
    Not anymore, we used to emphasize on it heavily and have made modifications to satisfy the differences between people, not through heritage
    We had a long line of royalty which pertained to our nation, but since we colonized and grew - heritage has not been a major situation we have politically considered
    It has provided justification for the unification of people into a common cause and so it reminds us of who we used to be and who we can be
    Nothing has changed since when we were first part of Russia and even though some declare us Slavic Russians, we deem ourselves differently
    Not necessarily, since we are a vastly differing heritage from our allies - but we would still fight for them
    We cannot afford to be picky with our ethnicities, given that we are still trying to fight and defend our homelands from the Marxist invaders
    While we can declare ourselves ethnic Slavs and Germans, we cannot advocate for one or the other - unless it brings victory to us in defending our homelands
    Not precisely, although we do deem certain peoples higher than others - through the formation of a strong military unit to rat out partisans
    Our present political system does not identify with its people, since it decrees heritage unimportant, however we wish to return to our heritage in the Northern European regions
    No, we fight for nation, not for ethnicity - for our colonial empires were not preserved through direct lineage, but through men of action and protection
  5. How do you percieve religion?

    We possess a national religion, but have had to make modifications - due to our imperial colonines overseas to tolerate more religions
    It was formerly a powerful and astonishing factor which connected us - but it has died down over the years
    It is an outdated practice, which imposed upon our people for many years and should be eradicated as soon as possible
    We hold it closely, but do not abide by all of its values as severely as some think we should
    We allow freedom of religion, seeing it as an honorary practice - rather than as a political motivator or social enabler
    We emphasize on our belonging to it and rely heavily on the matter that we possess a holy city within our nation
    We are a mixture of feelings for religion, being that we still adhere to the former glory of Russia, and believe in the Eastern Orthodoxy clearly
    Religion has its place in differing us from the Eastern hordes which try to dominate us
    We have some emphasis on it, but it is not the core root of our country
    Religious values establish some of our laws and ordain order over the population while defending our virtues as a nation, separate from others around us
    We sustain our religion and maintain it as a sign of defiance from our Eastern invaders
    We adhere to the religious values of Eastern Orthodoxy and so choose to use it as a sign of power and dedication against Marxism
    We are former Austro-Hungarians and Prussians so the power of religious virtues still hold strongly for us
    It bares our national pride, being that we have maintained this belief, since the times of the Moorish empire and the wars which followed

    Creating a well maintained police state and strong nationalism - while relying on a close ally for supplies and weapons
  9. How is your economy after the Great War?

    Poor and unfortunate, due to a mixture of lacking industrialization and poor leadership
    Strong and thorough - although sligtly offset by the Great War
    Poor, but able to sustain selling coal and raw resources
    Extremely poor - but aiming to nationalize all businesses
    Damaged and poor - but steadily regaining our economics back
    Maintaining a stable economy and growing to some extent - establishing a sense of autonomy
    Formerly poor and underdeveloped - we finally regained ourselves and stablized our economy
    Moderately fairing - but could be improved if maintaining good policies and stamping our partisans
    Moderately getting by - but being ravaged by constant war and misfortune
    Poor and unable to cope well - relying heavily on foreign support
    Poorer - but gaining in agragarian economics
    Fair - but only stable enough to stay out of debt and allowing businesses a chance to flourish
    Poor and hardly making ends meet - despite selling raw resources and relying heavily on mining
    Poor and fairing badly - needing the growth of another nation to expand our economics
  10. How will your nation fair - in the nearing future?

    After being captured and defeated, by multiple nations, I will be enslaved and forcefully integrated into the Soviet Union
    After losing the Eastern campaign, our forces will eventually be killed by foreign aggressors - as internal strife tear our country apart
    After beginning a war which will exhaust us of all resources and supplies - our nation will have to forgo most of the colonies overseas and replace them with new trade agreements
    This nation will expand over the entirety of the Eastern European continent, but will cause much suffering in the following years - before collapsing economically and socially
    Being invaded and failing to supply good troopers and vehicles, we will quickly be discontinued and forced to restart a new government headed by a mixture of nationalists and socialists
    Through being invaded and being kicked around by captors from the West and the East, my nation will be forcefully integrated into another nation
    Through making several major mistakes, the war will quickly turn against my nation depleting my nation of all of its efforts and ending through bloodshed
    Beginning several campaigns this nation will quickly lose its military traction and be discontinued after being invaded three times and losing its political staffing
    After losing two major fronts against the Russians, our forces will have to submit to defeat and let a third of our nation be devoured by Russia
    Being invaded and recaptured by our locall populace, we will then be reinvaded and forcefully integrated into the growing powers of the East
    Desperately seeking assistance, our autonomy will be lost when foriegn invasion deteriorates our country and is forcefully overtaken by growing powers
    After being thwarted by the Marxists - our nation will be forcefully integrated into expanding foriegn powers and lose our autonomy
    Torn between two major ethnic cultures - we will see a large growth of partisans - as they will eventually help the Soviets capture and enslave us
    After one major military victory - my nation will see several decades of peace and Marxist-free society, before being erased at my leaders death in 1975

Which Post-Imperial Countryball Are You?

You got: Germanyball

Germany was the former skeleton of its predecessors - Prussia and the German Confederacy. Being casted out by the League of Nations with the Weimar Republic, the suffering of Germany quickly called upon the powers of a former Austrian, by the name of Adolf Hitler. Adolf reorganized Germany, after 1933, to achieve the former glory of Prussia and the Germans altogether. Creating the Third Reich, Adolf Hitler successfully redeveloped one of the strongest militaries in the world, to see one final showdown.

You got: Polandball

The once former empire of Christian Hussars was now nothing more than a shambling skeleton of what it had once been. The eras of dynasties and various rulings, from Russians to Prussians, had not been kind as Poland was the introduction to the panhandle the Soviet Union had on Eastern Europe, after 1922. Poland remains as a series of desperate farming communities and with minor industrialization. While not the worst off country of Europe, after the Great War, it was definitely one of the weakest.

You got: Yugoslaviaball

Yugoslavia was formed after the collapse of Serbia and Albania in the Great War and was quickly assembled under the administration of the Western Europeans. The division between the Serbians and Croatians was known but was quickly overturned, as Europe desperately pieced fallen countries to try and reconcile a sense of independence, while simultaneously making life harder for almost all of Europe, with a few exceptions. Eventually divided by support for the growing German and Italian empires, it steadily turned to Slovenia and Croatia owning most, if not all, of Yugoslavia.

You got: Soviet Unionball

The Soviet Union was the byproduct of the Great War, as communist rebels gathered and demanded the Tsar to step down from leadership. The leading armies clashed and a violent coup d'├ętat was commanded, with vicious success as the Tsar and his family were executed in the night. The following years consisted of desperately relieving the fallen cities and starving population, resulting in Russia bullying Ukraine into submitting food and supplies for their 'glorious empire.' The Soviet Union is large, but consists of many poor and torn cities - which relies heavily on the government as farmers out in the Eastern European plains demand better compensation. Many years of death will follow.

You got: Franceball

The French suffered heavily under the Great War and demanded compensation from Germany to relieve their efforts. As policies and new governments were set in place, the Versailles Treaty allowed for France to punish Germany and decapitate the Eastern half of Europe from the former Austro-Hungarians. France remained incapacitated after the war, as German and French populations remained uneasy and hateful of each other. Occupying the Rhine Valley for a small time, the French attempted to drive their despair into Germany as much as possible. This didn't pan out well, as by 1938, Germany was one of the strongest country's in Europe, while France suffered staggering economic collapses and political fallouts.

You got: United Kingdomball

After the Great War, Britain remained commonplace with its leadership and joined into the League of Nations, while maintaining its colonies overseas in India and China. The efforts to repair Germany and Eastern Europe were overlooked in the following years, as English citizens in colonies across the world experienced widespread distress of their existence in India. Distrust only reinforced these concepts, when a man by the name of Ghandi stepped up to be the Indian people's behalf and voice. While this all occurred, politicians and Germans remained skeptical of the growth, although British popular opinion was apathetic to the German growth, after having suffered harshly as well.

You got: Italyball

Italy gained in the Great War, while simultaneously losing. The Italians lost their close respectable companion Prussia and quickly grew distraught at the Stop correcting "inefficiencies" of democratic parliaments. This was reinforced and eventually recognized, when Benito Mussolini led a March on Rome - outside of the parliamentary facility. The public opinion of democratic society quickly was replaced by a fascist government - the first authoritarian fascism to be forged in Europe. This continued successfully, until the wars in Eastern Europe grew too powerful and the Germans quickly had to support their allies, by 1941.

You got: Finlandball

Formerly a greater piece of the Russian Imperialists, the Grand Duchy quickly deteriorated when Red Russians attempted to thwart the White Russian and Finnish populations in the northern reaches of Scandinavia. Finnish forces, backed by the Kaiser at those times gained extreme nationalism and became autonomous from Russia. This lasted for several decades, until the late 1930's when Russia initiated the Winter Wars, which resulted in defensive wars lasting Finland many years during and after the Second Great War.

You got: Estoniaball

After the Great War ended, the Treaty of Versailles decreed that Prussia be divided into several sections of land, ranging from the Northeastern European plains to the borders of Northern Germany. This founded many differing states, with similar intents in mind - the autonomy from Russia, which served as Estonia's motto. Fighting the Russians and opposing foreign control of their small, but fervent population, through several wars and rebelling at any moment they could.

You got: Latviaball

Following in the same footsteps as its brothers, Latvia was disassembled from the Prussian nation and instead given its first sense of autonomy, away from Russia and Germany. This was challenged, as Russians and Reds alike would attempt to succumb the small but powerful state into the Soviet Union.

Lithuania remained as the most Germanic out of the three - being given autonomy by the Treaty of Versailles.

You got: Romaniaball

After the Great War decapitated the former alliances with Romania's closest friends, the country was quickly forced into ruling its own land and lifelines, against the growing Marxist concern across most of Southeastern Europe. Being headed by different political figures, the foundations of Fascism were quickly grown, as the growth of anti-Marxism spawned the Iron Guard of Romania. This allowed for a re-alliance with their former Prussian accomplice, Germany.

You got: Czechoslovakiaball

The Czechs and Slovakians were joined together, after their former leaders in Austria-Hungary were forced to divide and form two separate entities. Czechoslovakia was steadily formed from this division, as were other nations. This left the majority of the country to the peoples of central Europe independent, but confused and conflicted, as the eventual Anschluss of Czechoslovakia forged the growth of central Germany, in 1938.

Following a similar example as the Italians, the Spanish empire, headed by Francisco Franco, quickly armed to obliterate the opposing political opposition in the 1930's. Fueled by the Germans and given extensive weapons, the Spanish successfully succumbed the Spanish islands and subsects within several years. This allowed for continual ruling of the Spanish anti-Marxists until Francisco's passing in 1975, thoroughly ending the former Spanish Kingdom, altogether.
