Spain

May only be named if France has been conquered.

The Axis may make a reaction die roll for Spain during the Axis diplomatic phase following a Western Allied declaration of war on Portugal. Spain automatically associates with Germany if the Western Allies declare war on Portugal when Spain is neutral, but the diplomatic modifiers resulting from Spanish association do not apply to the reaction die roll. If the Axis reaction die roll results in a "10+" diplomatic result for Spain, Spain becomes a German minor ally, rather than associating with Germany.

General Modifiers:
+/-3Spain is an active minor ally following a diplomatic result of "10" or "-3".
+/-2Spain is an associated minor country following a diplomatic result of "9" or "-2" or an enemy attack.
+/-1The Spanish hexes are controlled by a major power following a diplomatic result of "8" or "-1".
+/-1For each unbuilt Spanish air, armor or infantry unit.
+/-1For every five friendly ground/air factors in Spain.
+/-1For every five enemy ground/air factors in Spain.

Additional Modifiers:
-1If no Axis units (EXCEPTION: Wafdist partisans) are in Africa (including Egypt east of the Suez canal).
-1If Vichy France has activated as a German minor ally.
+1If the Axis control either Suez or Alexandria.
+2If the Axis control Gibraltar.
+1If the Axis control any hex in Britain.
+1If the Western Allies declare war on Portugal.
+3+3 if the British resistance level is negative and Germany has previously accepted a British surrender.

Inertial Modifiers:
+1If the net diplomatic modifier, after any covert operations have been played, is negative.
