What if fascists around Europe created a EU like state in western europe and the Latin block. Mussolini would focus on others aspects of Italy like the military and corporatize the economy. He would convince Spain to join him as a way of getting a ally and not totally isolating itself. In this timeline the socialist are in control of France and the nation erupts into a civil war. Mussolini makes a deal with the fascists where in exchange for land and keeping more power in this new union they would help secure victory and turn France fascist, while also having a common threat of the Nazi’s who just took power in Germany. Spain would annex Portugal as a autonomous zone during the Estrado Novo controlling Portugal, The Netherlands and Belgium would join mainly as protection from Germany(but as a way of getting Germany’s eyes off of them they would be forced to secede their German speaking territory’s. other than France), and Italy would use the generals and money gained from this to take Yugoslavia’s and Albania’s coast.
