The Republic of Macedonia or Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, commonly abbreviated to Macedonia or FYROM, is a country in the Balkan peninsula, and a major character in Alternate Future of Dark Europe The Movie.
The Great Cataclysm and War with Greece
After the Great Cataclysm, Macedonia, who had strong national unity, was contacted by Greece through the telegraph system. It immediately declared war on Greece and occupied the Macedonian region, as nobody could back Greece and intervene. After a while of occupying mainland Greece, Greece surrendered, and in the Treaty of Skopje, the province of Macedonia was ceded to FYROM. This action boosted the popularity of the government and gave them complete control of the populous.
After contact was established, Macedonia was able to aid Turkey into contacting the rest of the territory they once controlled, by receiving messages from Anarcho-Capitalists. It then joined a pact with Bulgaria, Albania, Kosovo and Greece. In 2020, Bosnia declared war on Kosovo, Croatia, and Slovenia. Due to Kosovo being in the pact, Albania suggested that they would, along with Macedonia and Bulgaria, intervene in the war, as they were the most stable states in the pact. Despite Macedonia being heavily against this intervention, they eventually conceded and aided Kosovo. While Bosnia was distracted with invading Croatia and Slovenia, the pact managed to push into Bosnian territory. After forcing the Croats and Slovenians to surrender, however, the Bosnians concentrated their entire force onto the pact, and began to push them back, eventually reaching a stalemate.
Macedonia is highly hostile and aggressive, even to their own allies. They have repeatedly ignored the will of the pact, and are very critical of failure. It is very pleased when proven right in any circumstance.
