The Constitutional Republic of Germany, or Germany for short, is a constitutional republic located in the middle of Europe and has access to two seas, the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. The nation is inhabited by over 100 million people and covers an area of roughly 600 thousand kilometres squared.

The first sovereign German nation was the German Empire which formed after the Franco-Prussian war in 1870, however, due the failure of the German Empire to win WWI, socialist revolutionaries overthrew the government and formed Marxist Germany. During the 20th century the country embarked upon an expansionist age gaining lots of land lost during the civil war, and other Germanic land. The country was finally democratised in 1987 after a referendum and the country changed its name to Germany.

The country is a developed country with a GDP of 4.134 Trillion Marks. The GDP per capita is roughly 40,500 Marks which is one of the highest in the world, however the country has a large disparity in incomes which is a ratio of 11.3:1, the nation also ranks highly in disposal income which is 34,425 on average. The economy is fueled mainly by free market policies and the largest industry is the Information Technology Industry. Germany is recognised as a member of many organisations including The World Assembly and 10000 Islands.

The name Germany comes from Latin Germanus (adjective and noun, plural Germani), first attested in writings of Julius Caesar, who used Germani to designate a group of tribes in northeastern Gaul, of unknown origin and considered to be neither Latin nor Germanic. Perhaps originally the name of an individual tribe, but Gaulish (Celtic) origins have been proposed, from words perhaps originally meaning "noisy" (compare Old Irish garim "to shout") or "neighbor" (compare Old Irish gair "neighbor").

The nation was also known as "Marxist Germany", this is because the nation changed its official name to Germany after the end of the Socialist regime in 1987.

World War I
In 1914, the death of Archduke Franz Ferdinand triggered a series of events that led to a great war known as World War I, the main countries involved were The German Empire, The Austro-Hungarian Empire, and The Ottoman Empire versus The French Republic, The United Kingdom, and The Russian Empire. During World War I, The German empire attempted a failed invasion of France through Belgium in 1914, this offensive led to a counteroffensive later in 1916 which succeeded and pushed the Germans into the Rhineland. The fighting continued on until 1919 when the countries agreed to sign a ceasefire due to military exhaustion.

The story was different in the Eastern Front where the Germans were able to defeat the Ruskans in Tannenburg, and marched into Nikolo-Petrovska with the help of Finnish Rebels. The Russians were forced to sign a harsh treaty and lost lots of land, including which they would later reconquer from Germany during the civil war.

German Civil War
The history of the modern German state begins in 1919 with the German Civil War, which began with the Bavarian uprising, a Socialist rebellion led by Karl Steiner, following the disastrous World War I and mass starvation caused by the British blockade of German ports. The rebellion was too strong to contain and it spread into the devasted region of the Rhineland. The Kaiser Abdicated on September 25th 1919 after the Imperial Troops were defeated in the battle of Darmstadt.

The rebellious troops, led now by Josef Neumann, surrounded Berlin on October 10th 1919. The siege lasted for over 2 weeks until the Kaiser Friedrick V was assasinated by socialist rebels on the night of the 27th October. The provisional government signed its surrender and Karl Steiner was elected to serve as Chancellor by the members of The Socialist Party the next day.
