History

The Glorious Invasion of Greece

Following ISIS' aggressive expansion in the late 2040's and early 2050's, Turkey became paranoid, and on the 11th December 2057, the Turks invaded Greece. The invasion was extremely successful, and by February 2058, The Balkan Empire was established. After spending 3 years sorting out internal affairs, The Balkan Empire noticed The East European Coalition's invasion of Yugoslavia. Eager to gain more land and influence, The Balkan Empire entered the war on the side of The EEC. They triumphed, gaining land in Albania and Bulgaria. Following this successful teamwork-event, The EEC and The Balkan Empire allied with each other, as well as in response to the Triple Alliance between Ukraine, Belarus and Rumania. They were extremely pleased with the addition of Spain, Portugal, The United Kingdom and Italy to their alliance, viewing them as ways to gain power to defeat ISIS, their mortal enemy.

Extent of The Balkan Empire (c.2100)

The Great War

The Balkan Empire felt neutral towards France's induction into the Alliance, and became increasingly wary of ISIS' growing influence in the south. They were among the few to welcome the outbreak of World War Three, and gained masses of land in Arabia. The VIth Army lead the charge on Baghdad right at the end of the war. Following the war they expanded into Arabia, and gained control of the West Indian coast, the western half of Australia, and huge amounts of land in East Africa.

Expansion into Russia

The Balkan Empire had a succession of greedy emperors following the Third World War. They wanted land in Russia and Asia, and fought many wars between 2100 and 2115. They were joined in there conquest of Russia by the EEC, who had wanted more gain from WW3. The Balkan Empire conquered massive amounts of land, so that, by the outbreak of WW4, they had lands reaching from the Adriatic all the way to New Delhi. They conquered most of Australia and about half of Africa. By 2119, they were the strongest country in both military and economic terms, and decided to fight the Fourth World War on their own.

Fall of The Balkan Empire

The Balkan Empire bravely decided to go it alone during the Fourth World War, and were mildly successful, occupying land in Russia. They were unsuccessful in Africa and Europe though,as they lost ground to Britain and The EEC right from the beginning. After the defeat of the Great Frankish Empire by the Russo-British-Coalition Alliance, the Emperor mobilized his entire population. However, the population resented this, and refused to fight. In the capital, thousands stormed the Emperor's palace, and the Imperial Government was overthrown. On the 10th of January 2127, the Balkan Empire surrendered. They were split up into dozens of small states, nevermore able to reclaim their empire.
