The ALLIES:
Good things:
- They give lots of blueprints
- They don't have any shortage of resources
- Belgian congo is well protected
Bad things:
- Belgium will probably fall to the germans
- They always lose the Invasion of France
- They rarely do a D-Day when the time is right

So on the economic part the allies are good, on the fighting part... well
*no comment*

The AXIS:
Good things:
- Very good military
- Possibility of making the Netherlands and France part of Belgium
- Belgium will not fall so easily
- Possibility of doing Sea lion
Bad things:
- Germans always give very little free blueprints
- They are short of some resources (rare materials)
- Belgian Congo will be lost(with its resources) to the UK and France
- The Uk will bomb the industries in Belgium

So: on the military part the Axis are very good, on the economic, well...
not so bad

Allies is only option unless you cheat.
But Allies is stupid since it's clan of sissies who don'y got balls to do anything war-related except unconditional surrender and leave to colonies.

i would say axis also, for the sole reason that if you choose allies, unless you pull something VERY special out the hat, you will end up running your country from your colonies, with no ic.
