no China either as Nationalist or reds? France ? Croatia,  Yugoslavia , Serbs , Albanians , Greeks etc etc , hmm Persians , North African and Arab German cohorts , Indian axis volunteers ......

 

Ukraine ?, Norway ? hmm Finland is the closest of those listed from a hindsight perspective

 

Spain was technically neutral though sent volunteers to Germany , many countries were force into an "Axis or Allied" position by circumstance and are actually what I am most sympathetic to as for the participation in the war

Spain wasn't technically a fascist country. During the reign of Franco, 1939-75, the Spanish nationalists were known as Falangists. Whilst politically similar to fascism, Falangism isn't quite the same thing. For starters, the Falangists were both deeply religious (Catholicism being their main religion), something fascists tended not to be, and supported a monarchy, something which Italian fascism did but German fascism didn't.

Fascism and Falangism are, as I said, similar but they aren't exactly the same. It'd be easier to just refer to them all as national socialists, which they (the German and Italian fascists and Spanish Falangists) were. Easier than that, just refer to them all as nationalists.

I chose countries that played a major part in the War participating in the majority of it, apart from maybe Yugoslavia the rest did not. There was no Ukraine around during WW2. France and China did nothing but lose the whole war.

China was fighting itself, the nationalist Kuomintang (the ruling government party) and the communist party, and Japan at the same time. Not only that, the Chinese civil war predates WWII as does the Japanese invasion of China. I'm pretty sure that qualifies China as a major belligerent.

 

Also, China didn't "lose" the war. The Kuomintang was allied with the Allies and was still the ruling party in China until the civil war ended with a communist victory. China as whole was on the winning side as the Kuomintang and the communists had a ceasefire agreement in place, an agreement which both sides ignored in practice but allied them for the duration of the Japanese occupation on paper.

 

Last but not least, no. I have no desire to vote so I'm not going to.

I would 'choose' not to fight.  If, however, my homeland were attacked without provocation then I would fight to defend it.  If I had to choose a nation to fight for, then I would pick a nation that was attacked without provocation and which had a chance of winning, even if the odds are long.  That sounds a lot like Finland to me, before they were on any side but their own.

yes National Socialism isnt the same as Fascism and further divides into "Strasserism"  terms such as "Third Positionism" can be used as an umbrella also including "Peronism" , and arguably FDR's New deal , yeah I guess for simplicity Nationalist or Nationalist/populists would work for WW2 affiliations

 

Ukraine was not truly a sovereign state during WW2 but is an interesting case caught between two powers

 

losing or not China was far more involved then Spain , as was france for that matter

The awkwardness of people openly admitting they would want to help Nazi Germany or Japanese Empire world conquest/slaughter plans...
