The Greater Germanic Confederation

The Greater Germanic Confederation, commonly called the German Confederation and Germany, is a Semi-Federal Absolute Monarchy under a Military Dictatorship composed of 12 States, 12 Federal Cities, and 1432 Districts. The 7 contiguous States and the capital Germania, encompass much of Europe. the States of Mittelafrika, Kleinvenedig, and Neuschwabenland. are located across the globe. At a little over 8 million square miles and with over 210 million people, the country is the fourth largest by total area and the fifth most populous. It is one of the world's most ethnically diverse and multicultural nations, the product of spanning territory. The geography and climate of Europe, Asia, and Africa are also extremely diverse, and the country is home to a wide variety of wildlife.

The Deutscher Bund is a developed country and has one of the largest national economy by nominal and real GDP, benefiting from an abundance of natural resources and high worker productivity. While the German economy is considered post-industrial, the country continues to be one of the world's largest manufacturers. Accounting for 76% of global military spending and 87% of world GDP, it is the third world's foremost military power and economic power, a prominent political and cultural force, and a leader in scientific research and technological innovations.

A citizen of the Greater Germanic Confederation is a "German". "German Confederation", "Germany" and the "Confederation" refer to the country adjectivally ("German values", "German forces"). "German" rarely refers to subjects not connected with the country.

History
The concept of Germania as a distinct region in central Europe can be traced to Roman commander Julius Caesar, who referred to the unconquered area east of the Rhine as Germania, thus distinguishing it from Gaul (France), which he had conquered. The victory of the Germanic tribes in the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest (AD 9) prevented annexation by the Roman Empire, although the Roman provinces of Germania Superior and Germania Inferior were established along the Rhine. Following the Fall of the Western Roman Empire, the Franks conquered the other West Germanic tribes. When the Frankish Empire was divided among Charles the Great's heirs in 843, the eastern part became East Francia. In 962, Otto I became the first Holy Roman Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, the medieval German state. In the Late Middle Ages, the regional dukes, princes and bishops gained power at the expense of the emperors. Martin Luther led the Protestant Reformation against the Catholic Church after 1517, as the northern states became Protestant, while the southern states remained Catholic. The two parts of the Holy Roman Empire clashed in the Thirty Years' War (1618–1648), which was ruinous to the twenty million civilians living in both parts. The Thirty Years' War brought tremendous destruction to Germany; more than 1/4 of the population and 1/2 of the male population in the German states were killed by the catastrophic war. 1648 marked the effective end of the Holy Roman Empire and the beginning of the modern nation-state system, with Germany divided into numerous independent states, such as Prussia, Bavaria, Saxony, Austria and other states, which also controlled land outside of the area considered as "Germany". After the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars from 1803–1815, feudalism fell away and liberalism and nationalism clashed with reaction. The German revolutions of 1820 succeeded, The Industrial Revolution modernized the Confederation's economy, led to the rapid growth of cities and to the emergence of the socialist movement in the Confederation. the State of Prussia, with its regional capital Berlin, grew in political power within the Council. German universities became world-class centers for science and humanities, while music and art flourished. The unification of Germany (German-speaking areas of Switzerland) was achieved under the leadership of the Chancellor Otto von Bismarck with the formation of the German Confederation in 1824 which solved the Kleindeutsche Lösung, the small Germany solution, or Großdeutsche Lösung, the greater Germany solution, the former prevailing. The new Reichstag, an elected parliament, had only a limited role in the imperial government. Germany joined the other powers in colonial expansion in Africa and the Pacific. The German Confederation was the dominant power on the continent. By 1900, its rapidly expanding industrial economy passed Britain's, allowing a naval race. Germany led the Central Powers in World War I (1912–1919) against France, Great Britain, and Russia. Victorious, Germany forced the Allied Powers to pay war reparations by the Treaty of Helsingborg and had England and France stripped of their colonies as well as areas given to re-established Scotland and Occitania. German Militarism Rise of the 1930s deposed the larger freedoms and established a more authoritarian regime, leading to the establishment of the Greater Germanic Confederation. In the mid 1930s, the worldwide Great Depression hit Germany lightly, as unemployment became a gradual issue, people demanded a worker's program. In January 1936, A new worker's program was established, giving unemployed workers a place to stay and manual jobs. The Military Junta began to eliminate opposition of the Kaiser and consolidate the Kaiser's power. Beginning in the late 1930s, the Greater Germanic Confederation made increasingly aggressive territorial demands, threatening war if they were not met. First came the remilitarization of the Rhineland in 1937, the annexing of Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine, Livonia, Finland and parts of Italy with the Munich Agreement in 1938. On 1 September 1939, the Greater Germanic Confederation initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Russia. After forming a pact with France in 1939, the Kaiser and Petain divided Europe. After a "Phoney War" in spring 1940, the Germans swept Serbia and the Low lands, giving Germany control of nearly all of Central Europe. The Kaiser invaded France in June 1941. In Germany, but predominantly in the German-speaking areas, the systematic conscription program known as The Wehrpflicht conscripted six million young people, as well as five million others including Russian dissidents, gipsies, Poles, Romanies, and others. In 1942, the German invasion of Russia succeeded, and after the United States had entered the war, Britain became the base for massive Anglo-American bombings of German cities. Germany fought the war on multiple fronts through 1942–1944, however following the Allied invasion of Normandy (June 1944), the German Army was pushed back on the western front until the final ceasefire in May 1945. Under the Hamburg Agreement, the Greater Germanic Confederation was to secede some land back to France, while Germany was to be under United Nations restrictions, Germany and Greater China founded the Eurasian Cooperation Coalition in 1949. Germany was rearmed in the 1950s under the auspices of the UN, and with access to nuclear weapons. Since the invention of the Electric Car was introduced by Volkswagen, the world began to cool, reversing the affects of global warming. Tensions between NATO and the GGC are an all time high, forming a sort of Cold war, this could threaten global security. At the end of the 1970s, Germany and the United States managed to establish Moon colonies, and more nations are racing to the Moon.

Geography
Geography defines Central Europe's natural borders with the neighbouring regions to the North across the Baltic Sea namely the Northern Europe (or Scandinavia), and to the South across the Alps, the Apennine peninsula (or Italy), and the Balkan peninsula across the Soča-Krka-Sava-Danube line. The borders to Western Europe and Eastern Europe are geographically less defined and for this reason the cultural and historical boundaries migrate more easily West-East than South-North. The Rhine river which runs South-North through Western Germany is an exception. Southwards, the Pannonian Plain is bounded by the rivers Sava and Danube- and their respective floodplains. The Pannonian Plain stretches over the following countries: Romania, Serbia, and Hungary ("peri- Pannonian states"). As southeastern division of the Eastern Alps, the Dinaric Alps extend for 650 kilometres along the coast of the Adriatic Sea (northwest-southeast), from the Julian Alps in the northwest down to the Šar-Korab massif, north-south. According to the Freie Universität Berlin, this mountain chain is classified as South Central European. The Central European flora region stretches from Central France (the Massif Central) to Southeastern Germany (Carpathians) and Southern Scandinavia. At times, the term "Central Europe" denotes a geographic definition as the Danube region in the heart of the continent, including the language and culture areas which are today included in the States that make up Slavonia, Bohemia, and Galicia, the provinces that would make up the Slovenia area and usually also the provinces of Austria and Germany, but never China and other countries past the Ural mountains.

Demographics
Population

Language
The official language of the German Confederation is Standard Imperial German, with over 95 percent of the country speaking Standard Imperial German or recognized dialects as their first language This figure includes speakers of Polish, Czech, Lithuanian, Latvian, Estonian, Swedish, Norwegian, Italian, Slovene, Ukrainian, Belarusian, Russian, Swahili, Kyrgyz, Kazakh, Turkmen, Uzbek, Tajik, Abkhaz, Dagestani, Ingush, Icelandic, English, Irish, Armenian, Georgian, Azerbaijani, Nenenet, Karelian, and French, all recognized minority or regional languages that are native within the territory of the Confederation. All recognized minority languages have official status, usually in their respective regions. The census 1960 and the census 1965 did not inquire about language. Since the 1967 micro census, a survey conducted with a sampling fraction of 1% of the persons and households in Germany that supplies basic socio-demographic data and facilitates the ongoing monitoring of the labour market, a question asking "Which language is being spoken predominantly in your household?" was added, thirty one years since the 1939 Census asked for the Mother tongue of the population

Religion
Christianity is the predominant religion in the Greater Germanic Confederation. At the 1965 census, 73.6% of the country's population was Catholic. As of 1967, the number of Catholics has dropped to 56.9% of the population, according to data provided by the German Catholic Church itself. There is a much smaller group of Evangelicals, totalling about 4.7% of the population in 1965, shrunk to 3.3% in 1968. Since Early 1969, these two historically dominant religious groups in Germany recorded losses in the number of adherents. The Catholic Church reported an absolute drop of 15.7%, the Evangelical Lutheran and Evangelical Reformed churches of 1.3%. In relative numbers the losses of the smaller Evangelical churches account for 33.7%, compared to Catholic losses which account for 21.9%, since their maximum in 1962.
In contrast, due to immigration and the large spanning territory, the number of Muslims in Germany has increased in recent years, with 4.2% of the population calling themselves Muslim in 1959, up to around 5% to 6.2% in 1967, and to 7.9% in 1964 - represented especially by immigrants from Turkey and the lower Balkans. Orthodox churches have also grown rapidly (up to 8.8% of the population) in recent years, mainly due to immgration of Serbs from the former Yugoslavia and Romanians. There are also minor communities of Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists and Jews, and other religions in Germany.

Race
The demography of the Greater Germanic Confederation is monitored by the Statistisches Bundsamt (Confederation Statistical Office of Germany). According to the first census since the Second World War, Germany's population was 200,790,700 (9 May 1946), making it the sixteenth-most populous country in the world and the most populous in NATO. The total fertility rate was rated at 1.57 in 1947. In 1948, fertility was related to educational achievement (women with lower levels of education were having more children than women who had completed higher education). In 1948, this was no longer true, where higher educated women now had a somewhat higher fertility rate compared to the rest of the population. Persons who said they had no religion tend to have fewer children than those who identify as Christians, and studies also found that amongst Christians, the more conservative ones had more children compared to the more liberal ones. In vitro fertilisation (IVF) is legal in Germany, with an age limit of 40 years. As of 1949, 55.7% of Germans age 18 and over were married. According to the 1948-1949 German Community Survey 3-Year Estimates, 51.5% of males and 47.7% of females over the age of 15 were married. The separation rate was 6 per 10 marriages. The United Nations Population Fund lists Germany as host to the second-highest number of international migrants worldwide, behind the United States. More than 16,000,000 people are descended from immigrants (first and second generation, including mixed heritage and ethnic German repatriates and their descendants). 96.1% of those reside in Germany and Vienna. About 7,000,000 of them are foreign residents, defined as those without German citizenship. The largest ethnic group of non-German origin are the Turkish. Since Early 1969, Germany has been attracting immigrants primarily from Southern and Eastern Europe as well as Turkey, many of whom (or their children) have acquired German citizenship over time. While most of these immigrants initially arrived as guest workers, Germany has also been a prime destination for refugees who have applied for asylum in Germany, in part because the German constitution has long had a clause guaranteeing political asylum as a human right; but restrictions over the years have since limited the scope of this guarantee.

Government
the Greater Germanic Confederation is a Semi-Federal Absolute Monarchy under a Military Dictatorship. This means, that the monarchy has full power over every aspect of the country while the Military enforces it, but has imposed a federal system for the management of the states.
Due to this privilege, the Royal Family of Hohenzollern is able to set up and dispose of the parliament, and repeal/impose new laws. These powers however have only seldomly been used, except the impose of laws which happens time to time.
The country's political landscape is by far dominated by the so called "left-wing conservative" politics, which combine social conservative views with social democrat and socialist economical ideologies. This is caused by the high value of culture and tradition in the country and a doctrine of social responsibility towards the Volk.

Foreign Relations and Military
The Greater Germanic Confederation has a substantial diplomatic base, and good relations with most bordering nations. Germany is a member of the ECC, The Greater Germanian Commonwealth, and a founding member of the UN. Other members of the ECC include South Balkans, Finland, Persia, France, Greater China, Afghanistan, Japan, Korea, India, and Spain. the Confederation has the fifth largest army in the world, with 1,113,500 troops, the fourth largest air force, with 10,100 aircraft, and fifth largest navy, with 1,053 ships.

Economy
the Greater Germanic Confederation utilizes a socialistic economic system is characterised by social ownership and operation of the means of production that may take the form of autonomous cooperatives or direct public ownership wherein production is carried out directly for use. Socialist systems that utilize markets for allocating inputs and capital goods among economic units are designated market socialism. When planning is utilized, the economic system is designated as a socialist planned economy. Non-market forms of socialism usually include a system of accounting based on calculation-in-kind to value resources and goods.

Culture
the Greater Germanic Confederation is largely influenced with it's culture of Music, and it's Germanic Roots. The nation has also been largely influned with it's Neighbors.

Infrastructure
Modern energy infrastructure is crucial for Germany to integrate its energy market and to meet its energy and climate goals. To upgrade Germany's infrastructure, the Council of States has estimated that around ℛℳ200 billion is needed during the current decade (until 1975) for transmission grids and gas pipelines. However, not all investments are commercially viable, and the market alone is likely to only provide half of the necessary investment. Therefore Germany is helping to build and fund new energy infrastructure projects all over the Confederation, as part of its Trans-European Networks for energy strategy.

Energy
In January 1969, the Commission published a Communication on strengthening Germany's energy networks that reiterates the importance of building a well interconnected and integrated trans-European energy grid, accompanied by the Confederation's list of Projects of Common Interest in energy and a factsheet on questions and answers on these projects of common interest (PCIs).
