The Kingdom of the Balkans, also called the Balkans or the Second Austrian Empire, is a large nation located in Southeastern Europe. It is a major member of the Axis Alliance and a powerful force around the world.
The Kingdom of the Balkans was formed in the climatic aftermath of World War Two. A few years under Communist rule had devastated Austria, and the provisional democratic government elected to join Romania, who had joined the war late and was relatively untouched. The fledgling kingdom gained Hungary and part of Slovakia from Poland when the war was over and CNAT was effectively defeated.

The Balkans contributed two submarines and one frigate to the Axis invasion of Iran, but withdrew after the Greek Air force devastated Tehran and other Iranian cities.
The Military of the Balkans is divided into three main sections: The Army, The Navy and the Air Force.
The Balkan Army was formed from the former Romanian Army and various Austrian and Hungarian partisans. It was involved in many important battles of the Second World Wat, such as the Battle of Budapest, the Battle of Odessa, and the Liberation of Vienna.
Today the Army has not dimmed in significance, and is currently on alert for any conflicts that might arise.
