Yugoslavia was introduced as an idea in the 17th Century, and became a country immediately after the First World War, following the dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Yugoslavia was created to be a country specifically for those of South Slavic ethnicity. In the 20th Century Yugoslavia became a communist nation, but didn't get on very well with the USSR. In the 1980's the country began to fall apart. By 1992, it had been utterly dissolved.
In late 2016, following the successful Russian invasion of Ukraine, Serbia sent out a message to many of her bordering nations, namely Hungary, Slovakia, Rumania, Croatia, Bosnia, Albania and Bulgaria, asking them if they wanted to reform Yugoslavia to prevent a Russian attack. All seven countries agreed unconditionally, and in January 2017, the Second State of Yugoslavia was born.
Yugoslavia remained mostly neutral, though aggressively built up its military during the intervening years, until 2042, when Georgia and Armenia joined with Russia. Seeing Russia gaining even more force, and worried about Turkey and ISIS, President Artem Nickolas demanded that Austria, Slovenia and the Czech Republic join the Union. Austria and Slovenia both accepted, but the Czech Republic declined, prompting Yugoslavia to mobilise. However, Germany threatened Yugoslavia with war, knowing that Yugoslavia could not compete with the Western superpower. Yugoslavia regretfully backed down.
Yugoslavia was particularly annoyed about the formation of the East European Coalition, as it created another large country to deal with, and relations between the two remain frosty at best. The Yugoslavs began to create vast fortifications on the Russian and EEC borders.
However, these fortifications did not prove effective when The East European Coalition invaded in 2061, and the combined forces of the EEC and the Balkan Empire proved too much for Yugoslavia. Following the War, in which Yugoslavia lost almost all of its territory apart from Rumania, Yugoslavia collapsed, and renamed itself Rumania. The largest nation in the Balkans had been usurped. In early 2062, the President resigned, and the Democratic State of Rumania was officially set up.
After the Horde Invasion of Poland (2226) the residents of the Yugoslav area of the EEC revolted against their rulers. This ignited a wave of revolution that caused the dissolution of the East European Coalition. For several years they remained peaceful, arming themselves, for war was brewing over Europe.
During the Ottopersian War of 2241, Yugoslavia was one of six nations that united to form Rome to defend Alexandria from attack, thus ending her brief revival.

National Anthem (English Translation)
Hey, Slovaks, there still lives
the Slovak language
While for the nations beats the heart
of their sons!
There lives, there lives the Slovak spirit,
It will live for ages!
In vain threatens the abyss of Hell
Against us are all the rage!
God entrusted to us our language
Our almighty god.
Therefore it must not be snatched,
By anyone in the world!
So many people,
so many devils in the world
God is with us: who is against us
Him sweep away!
Let now everything above us
be blown away by the storm.
The stone cracks, the oak breaks,
Let the earth quake!
We stand firm
like the cliffs,
Black earth damned
Whom betray treacherously!
The Yugoslav Army focuses all of it's power on the land, and has a huge -if not well-trained -land army.
Yugoslavians don't like water.
