In the mid-20th Century, in Europe, several traditional hereditary monarchies managed to survive both world wars, remaining independent and retaining their original form of government. Among these were Boravia, Carabas, Cornovia, Gardevia, Gavonia, Granaco, Kravia, Markovia, Moldacia, Norania, Numark, Offalia, Pan Balgravia, Ruina, Sardonia, Solvonia, and Valdania. Others, such as Cerania, Emporia, Patrania, or Resbia, are confirmed to have survived the First World War, but are not known to have survived the second.
In late 1941, just before the United States entered the Second World War, Oxnalia opportunistically invaded Numark. Acting independently, the American adventurer "Superman" traveled very rapidly to Numark, then to Oxnalia, and intervened. He saved King Boris from an assassination attempt and saved Prince Michael from an airborne kidnapping. Superman went on to overthrow the dictatorship of Razkal, in Oxnalia, and at his urging, the suddenly-leaderless Oxnalian soldiers reached a peace agreement with Numark.
