HISTORY: In 1609, the Queendom of Scania(Modern day Sweden) and the Queendom of Fosna(Modern day Norway) were united by the Treaty of Gothenburg, which also marks the start of the Leipidic Unity ideology. The new empire that arose from this treaty was called the United Thrones of Scania. At the near end of the century, in 1685, the Queendom of Denmark joined the United Thrones through intermarriage between the Queen of Fosna and the Queen of Denmark. It was then that the Imperial Court was officially founded, and the empire's name was changed to The United Thrones of Scania and Denmark. In 1756, the United Thrones invaded the island of Norden(Modern day Iceland), and after several years of extreme violence, the island succumbed to the larger Imperial forces. Norden was incorporated into the United Thrones, however was excluded from the Imperial Court. In the decades leading up to the mid-1900s, the United Thrones, and its nearby rival, the Kingdom of Lumimaa(Modern day Finland and Estonia), better known as Austerland, built up forces on their northern border, and most notably in the Baltic Sea. It was around this time that the United Thrones had begun to expand its influence across the oceans into various nooks and crannies around the world. This resulted in Scanian Africa and Scanian Indochina, which remain as part of the United Thrones to this day.

In 1906, Scania declared war on Austerland after accusing its rival of attacking a military base on the then-occupied Aland Island. What resulted was a 12-year lond war between Scania and Austerland, which saw massive casualties and the first deployment of modern Battleships in a war. This was shortly followed by the outbreak of World War I. Austerland aligned itself with the Central Powers while the United Thrones aligned itself with the Entente. At the end of the War, which ended in the North in 1917 with the fall of Helsinki to Scanian forces, Austerland was formally annexed by the United Thrones. Due to the massive scale of the First World War, Scania had then begun to maintain a rather formidable navy, albeit nowhere near the scale of the Royal Navy or French Navy.

In 1939, Austerland was added to the the Imperial Court to quell the unrest that had come with full occupation by the United Thrones. This was shortly followed by the outbreak of the Second World War, which marked Scania's involvement.

By this point, Scania had a singular Light Carrier(Queendom-class), Three Pre-Dreadnought Battleships(Skaneland-class), Four Pre-WW1 Dreadnought Battleships(Moth-class), Seven Cruisers(Four Gotland-class Seaplane Cruisers, Four Fylgia-class Armoured Cruisers), Seven Destroyers(Victory-class), and Ten Submarines(Draken-class). The Army was rather sizable but also using rather outdated equipment, with the newly established Army Air Force being somewhat well equipped.
