Austria-PEACE Resistance War
On 27 March 2009, shortly after Germany-Austria joined ATLANTIS, PEACE Global Community forces moved into former regions of Austria in order to ignite the Austria-PEACE Resistance War. Austria had already made the decision to merge with Germany a month earlier, but when Austro-German leaders voted to join ATLANTIS, many Austrians became enraged and as many Austrian people never wanted to be unionized with Germany, they asked for help from PEACE GC. PEACE troops in Austria then started the first fight in the Austria-PEACE Resistance War in the region of Carinthia.
By 4 April 2009, Carinthia , Lower Austria , Salzburg , Tyrol , Styria  and Upper Austria  were all freed into a new Austrian state. The Austrian President, Silent Bob, then declared war on Italy and Slovenia, deciding to give them most of the Austrian regions for protection.
Since Austria had a very small population and weak economy, it was decided to give away all but one region to PEACE allies, as the country could not support them. It was agreed that once the population in Austria started to rise, they would have more of their regions back. President Metallon stated  that once 40 people vote in the elections, i.e. there are more than 40 active players, the region of Lower Austria would be returned.
