The Socialist Republic of North Finland (known commonly as North FInland) in Northern Europe. North Finland is a poorly-developed country that is still recovering from its war of independence. The country and region very briefly was the center of extreme political interest between China who sought to defend the Finish revolution from Spain who sought to eradicate as many traces of communism in Europe as possible.
The nation is ruled as a single-party state by an off-shoot of Neo-Bolshevikism as prosleytized by its leader Sven Frihet-Kampe. Under his leadership the revolutionary state nearly had total control of Finland until Spanish intervention and the treaty at Addis Ababa that eventually split the nation in two.
The region is commanded by the FCPS.
The Finnish RevolutionEdit

North Finand has had a short and bloody history, starting on the 26 January, 1971. The northern reaches of Finland were being won over by charismatic Frihet-Kampe Sven, in the wake of the collapse of the Russian Empire. Finland was still at that time controlled by a fragment of Russia, and the populace was none too pleased about it. As such, Sven was quickly able to round up a fighting force to combat the Russians in Helsinki, and set off south, picking up a few followers along the way.
Their march to the sea was rapid, and the fighting was over extremely quickly. Within weeks of beginning their assault, the Finnish Boyars were driven off to an island off the west coast of Finland. With Finland under his control, Sven began rallying more soldiers to attempt to drive out the Boyars from other countries.
However, the surge of socialism from the north breached Spain's no-communism area, and so they began shelling Finand from offshore warships, as well as beginning ground and air operations.
The New People's China , deciding to aid in making Finland a socialist country, sent the submarine Bohai and its six companion subs to destroy the Spanish fleet. In turn, the Americas-based North Western Coalition sent troops from an outpost in Britain to try and crush Sven's rebellion.
Before a second Great War could ignite Europe, Ethiopia called a political summit to begin peace talks between the ASB, Finland and the anti-communists. In attendence were most of the ASB, Finland, Spain, the NWC and Ukraine . Peace talks were tricky at first, until the Bohai's fleet sank a Spanish aircraft carrier, before destroying several other ships as the summit went on. With more pressure to end it, Spain eventually agreed to allow North Finland to remain communist, re-instating a capitalist society in the south. The revolution formally ended on the 2nd April, 1971, and the Bohai returned home.
