Neutral countries are inactive until war is declared on them. Once a country declares war on a neutral, the country may attack and enter the airspace of the neutral country. Only Axis nations and Russia can attack neutrals. However, Russia can only attack bordering neutrals. There is no IP penalty for declarations of war. Place 3 infantry units from the opposing player whose capital is closest to the neutral country. However, Spain or Turkey receive the following units:
5 infantry, 1 artillery, 1 armor, 1 fighter, 1 destroyer, and 1 IC.
The opposing player controls undefeated neutral countries and also receives their IP value. All neutrals have an IP value of one when they are controlled or conquered by a major power, except Spain and Turkey, which have a value of three.
