The Franco-German War is a large conflict based mainly in western Europe, but with nations all over the world involved.

Background

On September 10th, 2020, Germany asserted its claims on the Rhineland by sending a ultimatum after France claimed the Rhineland to the dismay of Germans who had owned the Rhineland before then, and demanded that France disband the recently founded city of Utrecht in the Netherlands. After France didn't oblige, Germany declared war on the country, calling on its Syndicate allies and multiple other nations, leading to over 46 (in game) nations joining the war against France, though France did see some help from other nations.

By the time of the siege's conclusion, Germany's vassals and two of its Syndicate allies had joined the conflict. In the following hours, Austria also declared war directly on France, due to being a German ally.
