Yugoslavia (Yugoslav: Jugoslavija), officially known as the Republic of Yugoslavia (Republika Jugoslavija), is a sovereign state located in the Balkans of Europe. The country is bordered by Austria and Hungary in the north, Bulgaria and Romania in the east, Albania and Greece in the south, and Italy in the west.


Yugoslavia was established in 1918 with the amalgamation of the Kingdom of Serbia with the Croat, Slovene, and Serb territories of Austria-Hungary. The nation originally began as a kingdom, with the Serb Karađorđević Dynasty as the head. During World War II, Yugoslavia was partitioned by the Axis Powers. The National Liberation Army, lead by Josip Broz Tito, would successfully liberate Yugoslavia and later establish the nation as a communist state.

While initially friendly with the Soviet Union, political differences between Josip Broz Tito and Joseph Stalin would result in Yugoslavia become a neutral state during the Cold War. Tensions between the Kingdom of Italy and Western Allies would result in Yugoslavia taking control over the Free Territory of Trieste by the early 1950s.

Beginning in the early 1960s, Josip Broz Tito began to reform his nation. Fearing that his nation was just as susceptible to regionalism and ethnic tensions (as happened in the former German states), Yugoslavia was reorganized into a unitary state. The old republics were abolished (being replaced with oblasts), with the national capital being moved from Belgrade to Sarajevo. Other nationalization programs included the formalization of a single Yugoslav language and identity.

During this time, Yugoslavia began to open themselves up more to the Western Powers. In particular, relations with Alaska would reach its zenith during this time, as President Vasily Kardash would favor Alaska's participation in the Non-Aligned Movement and establishing closer relations with Tito's Yugoslavia.
