HistoryEdit

The Swedish royal House of Bernadotte is regarded as being amongst the most pro-Nazi of all European royalty, with the possible exception of the British king-emperor Edward VIII.

In February 1940 the then-king Gustaf V pledged Sweden’s support for Finnish independence in the conflict with the USSR. This pre-empted the June 1941 Midsummer Crisis, in which the king’s position in Sweden was greatly strengthened, allowing for the subsequent royal coup and full alliance with Germany. King Gustav dismissed the Social Democratic Prime Minister Per Albin Hansson and replaced him with the 'non-party' candidate Count Eric von Rosen.

Gustaf's grandson became King Gustaf VI Adolf of Sweden in 1950. Gustaf V's son, also called Gustaf Adolf, was not considered an appropriate heir due to his politics. Gustaf VI Adolf on the other hand was considered very appropriate: his support for Germany had earned him the nickname Tyskprinsen (German prince) and he was married to a German princess (Princess Sybilla).

Norway and Sweden, along with Denmark, have already been partially integrated as member states of the Greater Germanic Reich. This body is led by Germany, and has grown to include the new United Kingdom of Iceland and United Kingdom of the Netherlands.

Sweden exchanges some small territories with Finland after the war as part of the German-led European Harmonisation and Reorganisation Plan in 1947. Sweden received the Aland Islands in exchange for the Torne Valley. Sweden also received a number of formerly Russian islands in the Kara Sea, notably the Nordenskiold Archipelago, named for a nineteenth-century Swedish explorer.

The ruling party is a coalition of the main pro-German, fascist and conservative type parties, including Sven Olov Lindholm's Svensk Samling, Per Engdahl's Nysvensk Rorelsen and Birgir Furugard's Svenska Nationalsocialistiska Partiet. The handover of power from the arch conservative Elof Eriksson to the Strasser-influenced militant Sven Olov Lindholm was seen as a major shift in Swedish politics.
