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 120 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. The country was finally democratised in 1995 after a referendum and the country changed its name to Germany.
The country is a developed country with a GDP of 8.308 Trillion Marks. The GDP per capita is roughly 67,500 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 52,000 on average. The economy is fuelled 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 The United Federations.
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 1995.
