The Kingdom of Yugoslavia was the former alliance of six Balkan States: Croatia-Herzegovina, Croatia, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia. The WWII invasion by Germany, the post war occupation by the USSR, internal conflict and sectarian violence resulted in the total dissolution of the country into its former states and the new autonomous provinces of Vojvodina, Kosovo and Metohija. The Balkans has long been seen as a powder keg in European stability.

This answer is wrong at several points:

1. Kingdom of Yugoslavia was not an alliance of states, it was a centralized country, ruled by a king in Belgrade. Before 1918 what are today Slovenia and Croatia were a part of Austro-Hungarian empire, not independent states.

2. In World War II Yugoslavia was divided by Germany, Italy, Hungary and I believe (not sure) Bulgaria, while Croatia was an independent state, under strong German influence.

3. Yugoslavia was not occupied by the USSR after the war. The majority of the country was liberated by local partisans, led by Josip Broz - Tito. It was autonomous under the rule of Tito's communist regime. In 1948 Tito had a famous fall-out with Stalin and Yugoslavia became an "outlaw" of the communist states, having a lot more links with the west as the other communist countries. It was never a member of the Warsaw pact, instead Tito created an organisation of "non-aligned states", mostly third world countries that refused to take either side in the cold war.

4. Today Yugoslavia is separated into 6 countries, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM).
