THE ODINIST REPUBLIC OF NYA ÅLAND
Motto:- Courage, and victory.
National Anthem:- This is My Land

BACKGROUND
[/b][/u]

Nya Åland became an independent nation in 2015 after splitting away from the Union of Nordic People citing a belief that the religious nature of their country and the more secular UNP were no longer compatible. The nation had been part of the UNP since 1787 and left on good terms. Since becoming independent the Ålanders have been rather big critics of several international decisions, namely an attempt by the CTO to impose on their EEZ, the mismangement of the Marseille campaign and then more recently the Uppsala Crisis.

In mid 2016 a major tragedy befell the UNP seeing tens of millions die, it was Åland and her partners (mainly East Moreland and Achkaerin) that stepped in and this lead to Nya Åland legally "annexing" what remained of the UNP in order to restore law and order. Since then the Ålander government supported by East Moreland, Achkaerin, Himeyama, Lodja and The Iwi have sought to rebuild Uppsala where around 5 million refugees live.

ARMED FORCES OF NYA ÅLAND

The Armed Forces of Nya Åland can trace its history back to the 1300's when Åland formed it's first national rather than feudal army. This was done under the reign of King Gustav the Ravenwing in order to begin a conquest of the other Nordic Kingdoms that went on to form the UNP in the early 1800's.

The Åland armed forces became part of the UNP military in 1856 and in 2015 regained their independence following the referendum that saw the nation leave the Union of Nordic People. Since being independent the military have operated in Marseille where they fought terrorist rebels, and then in Uppsala where they annexed the old Union following a great disaster. With the collapse of the UNP the nation inherited what was left of the UNP military making it in some ways overblessed with military materials.

The Ålander military is formed of three branches.
