Scandinavia 1914 CE
Norway is now an independent nation.
What is happening in Scandinavia in 1914CE
Both Sweden and Denmark are constitutional monarchies, with full power vested in their parliaments. Denmark has seen the rise of a highly influential cooperative movement, which has organized Danish agriculture along cooperative lines, and has experienced a high degree of industrialization. Sweden’s industrialization has lagged behind somewhat, and its economy has remained largely agricultural. This has made it difficult to feed its growing population, a problem alleviated by mass emigration to the USA.
In 1905 Norway gained its independence from Sweden, and invited a Danish prince to become their king – Haakon VII. Norwegian international trade and shipping have been growing apace at this time; Norway has in fact one of the largest merchant shipping fleets in the world.
