Embargo List

This country doesn't have any trading embargoes at the moment.


Military organisation

The Swiss National Army was the state military unit of Switzerland. It was created in March 2012 by President bowen199 and is traditionally commanded by the president, and it is the largest military unit although others exist. When the bowen199, the commander of the SNA, left for the UK, where he later died, the SNA fell into chaos. It disbanded shortly afterwards.

In February 2014, Switzerland saw the return of a national military unit with the Swiss Special Forces.

Private units

The military units of Switzerland that are separate from the government include:

Society

While there are many Swiss citizens in eSwitzerland, a large amount of people come to Switzerland internationally, the majority of which are from the USA.

Religion

The traditional religion of Switzerland is Renouilleism, a Swiss religion that is based off of the teachings of the spiritual Swiss cow, Renouille. In early 2012, Guillotinism was a significant part of Switzerland, although it is dead today while Renouilleism lives on, primarily recognizable by the Swiss IRC greeting.

Icon history.png History

Main article: Switzerland/History

Switzerland has been a nation in the New World since the beginning.

Early wars

Early in the game (2008), the France-Switzerland War was waged by forces of France and Italy against Switzerland. This ultimately led to Switzerland being erased from the map. The Swiss Independence War that began on December 4, 2008 led to Switzerland liberating Deutschschweiz and Svizzera italiana, reestablishing Switzerland on the map.

Theocrats

Soon after, in January 2009, Switzerland was PTO'd by Theocrats. This PTO, lead by Dio Brando, lasted until late July of 2009. Months later, Switzerland joined EDEN, although at times it was not official due to actions by the Swiss Neutrality Party. Switzerland was eventually suspended as a member due to inactivity.

Shaolins

Switzerland faced another PTO threat in the form of the Shaolins from early 2010 to August 2010. This group was supported by Clifford Burns and the Swiss Neutrality Party, so power flipped between the resistance coalition and the PTO group until Paul Proteus was elected in August.

Initial Slovenian Invasion

In April of 2011, Slovenia and the Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) invaded Switzerland. The nation remained occupied until May, when they joined Luna and freed Svizzera italiana for a short period. Switzerland remained occupied (although the R.o. Macedonia left in July, Slovenia took the regions for themselves) untl September, when president JNArno led talks with EDEN. With the help of sympathetic Croatian soldiers, Switzerland's regions went in and out of Swiss control until EDEN lost their influence in Europe. Later, president Borgogian signed the The Flying Dove Treaty, which meant friendship between the two countries. This caused an uproar within Switzerland, and led to many citizens emigrating out of the country.

Switch to ONE

In April of 2012, Switzerland aligned itself with ONE. This was met with invasions by Germany and Croatia. This ended when the Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), Slovenia, and Poland took Croatia's regions. Macedonia (FYROM) ended up with the Swiss regions, and rented out Deutschschweiz for its iron afterwards. This ended in October when the USA invaded to get a border with Hungary, although they never actually warred against them, while Slovenia ended up with all of the Swiss regions.

Cronoss and CoT

While the USA-Macedonia war was being fought, Cronoss, a PTOer, came to Switzerland. His party of multis successful PTO'd Switzerland in March of 2013. While this threat has now mostly been taken care of, Cronoss and his party still reside in Switzerland today. Switzerland also around this time (non-Cronoss Switzerland) was a founding member of the Circle of Trust, a member of which it is still today.

World War VI

Switzerland in early June was the initial cause of World War VI, when an agreement with Slovenia ended and they would not give back Switzerland her regions. This led to the USA invasion of Serbia, and counter invasions by many TWO countries. Slovenia ended up wiping Switzerland again. Switzerland at this point was still under the PTO threat of Cronoss (now known as The Troll Warlord) and a new, questionable group of Hungarians who immigrated illegally, and followed up with rapid increases in Swiss citizenship likely due to the creation of multi-accounts (more than 50 of which were deleted in elections around this time).

"Graub-und-Run"

On October 19 2013, Switzerland won a resistance war in Graubunden thanks to organization of military units from the Circle of Trust coordinated by the President Alexandre Walen. After the successful war (fought after a couple of months of unsuccessful Slovenian NAP's), Walen revealed a secret plan made with Canada (then new member of CoT) to rent Alberta[1]. He proposed an airstrike (and won with no congress to vote in favor or opposition) and Switzerland won the region. This event is nicknamed the "Graub-und-Run", as it sounds like both "Graubunden" and "Grab-and-Run" (as Switzerland "grabbed" Graubunden and "ran" to Alberta), after former President Paul Proteus suggested the term on IRC.

"French War"

On Jul 22, 2014, Switzerland has all it's cores regions and also conquered Tyrol from Austria. France decided to attack Switzerland to get bonus and block the advance of Poland in France. It was predicted by many people that Switzerland would lose the war after "ping-pong" battles because the shield influence, however Switzerland was able to defend and conquer Alsace and Lorraine from France. This war, coordinated by the Minister of Defence (Felllix) and the Minister of Foreign Affairs (Walen II), showed that Switzerland has enough international support to beat countries way bigger and allowed Switzerland to get 60% food bonus and 40% house bonus. [2]

Theft of National Bank

On October 2014, the Swiss Treasure guarded in the National Army's organisation was stolen by the Minister of Finance, Er0sensei. Switzerland lost around 2 thousand golds, the worst loss in the history of the country. The Government did not support this act and the thief changed his citizenship immediately. Er0sensei was a trust man in Switzerland, he has been Vice President of the country once, and for these reasons the theft has shocked all world. Switzerland didn't get a refund from the administration once he has legal access to the Swiss organisations. The crime was few days before the Brazilian Minister of Finances steal 1 thousand golds from Brazilian orgs, which lead people to think both cases are related to a big scheme.
