Republic of Slovenia
The Republic of Slovenia is a Central European country. Throughout history, Slovenia has been part of larger countries: from the Roman Empire to Yugoslavia before declaring independence in 1991. It borders Italy to the west, Austria to the north, Croatia to the south and southeast and Hungary to the northeast.
Historically, the current territory of Slovenia was part of many different state formations, including the Roman Empire and the Holy Roman Empire, followed by the Austria-Hungary Empire. In 1918, the Slovenes exercised self-determination for the first time by co-founding the internationally unrecognized State of Slovenes, Croats, and Serbs, which merged into Yugoslavia. During World War II, Slovenia was occupied and annexed by Germany, Italy, Croatia, and Hungary. Afterward, it was a founding member of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. In June 1991, after the introduction of multi-party representative democracy, Slovenia split from Yugoslavia and became an independent country.
During the Third Tiberium War, Slovenia was classified as part of Yellow Zone Y-1. During the middle stages of the conflict, an Armageddon bomber from Brazil, carrying components of a Liquid Tiberium Bomb, was shot down over Slovenia. Nod quickly sent forces in to recover the device.
A Commando managed to take out a GDI force guarding the crash site, destroying AA Batteries to land more reinforcements. These troops reclaimed the device and reached an abandoned Nod base which was initially occupied by GDI.
To ensure the survival of the device, Kane sent Avatar Warmechs to reinforce the troops protecting it. With the help of the Avatars, a major GDI blockade to the north was broken through, allowing the components for the liquid Tiberium bomb to be transported away on a highway, bound for Sarajevo.
