Denmark

The signing of the preliminary treaties in Paris marked the end of the golden age of trade, and the Kingdom is faced with new problems, both internal and external. Christian VII's insanity made him incapable of bringing any decisions and with the state in crisis, the future of the Kingdom is unclear. The old ministries since the fall of Struensee have proved inefficient and with the crown prince's coming of age a new coup d'état is nearing. Denmark should not get entangled in Russia's diplomatic affairs that easily and should, when the time is right, discuss other options, but for now Sweden is a major threat and Russian assistance a necessity.

Gustav III has set his eyes on Norway and is trying to bring Denmark in a state of complete isolation so good relations and alliances are a key to safety. Gustav is already mobilizing all his available forces so expect an attack very soon.

Concluding trade treaties with nations like the Kingdom of Sicily, Portugal and Spain will provide new resources and help boost your economy. Although currently at peace, the Barbary States pose a constant threat to Denmark's trade routes so building a strong navy to protect those routes is beneficial.

It is important you pay close attention to the events in India, as old combatants in their battling will be too busy to watch the activities of the Danish East India Company and their mutual bombarding may serve to you as an opportunity to expand the company's influence. The European equilibrium is threatened and how Denmark will adapt to the new changes is up to you.
