Previous - Divide and Occupy Germany (CYOAH)
The invading nations decide that a compromise was the best way to handle this situation. In central Germany, a new German state is proclaimed, its capital in Frankfurt am Main. Most of the rebels settle there, although they still hold contempt for the nations that occupy their homeland.
