The German Democratic Republic (GDR) or East German is a survivor nation located in eastern Germany.

Since the Great War the DDR has manage to survive semi-intact to the conflict, it have expand his border after a small war again the West Germany and the NATO forces in Germany, with the Treay of Hamburg the War officially ended and the two Germany began to have more friendly relations, despite his form of government East Germany has create a unique system with a mixed economy.


Great Nuclear War

Because it was split between Allied and Soviet forces, Berlin was not targeted by either side as they both believed they could capture it and didn't want to needlessly sacrifice their forces in the city. Also because so many troops were stationed within Berlin it was irrational to destroy it thus it was not targeted by nukes. The East German military managed to keep it self together with their leadership surviving because the Nuclear Strike against sparring the East German military commanders and allowing them to effectively organize a East German and Soviet ground offensive against West Berlin and West Germany while both were still dealing with the Nuclear War. However, some rioting and fighting in the streets between citizens and East German police happened, But thanks to the survival of much of the East German Military/Soviet Forces in Germany and East German/Soviet Leadership many Soviet/East German troops were able to be mobilized from their bases to squash the uprising before it even started. After the capture of West Berlin and the capture of all of Schleswig Holstein plus all of the city of Hamburg (Not Nuked By Soviets as they thought they could capture it) the NATO/West German forces signed as cease fire with Warsaw Pact/East German forces to end the conflict so both sides could go about piecing their respective nations.

The leaders of East and West Germany met to hash out the new border and their relations, after much debate and argumentation they finally agreed that the current border would become the new border and East Germany would get all of Berlin and the Schleswig Holstein region if they returned Hamburg to West Germany and all the other conquered territory, so they could use it as their capital. The East and West Germans both agree to the terms of the treaty and sign it. The treaty they signed will officially be known as the Treaty of Hamburg

The treaty was sign on the 1st May of the 1964, according to the treaty East Germany would will be receiving the hole city of Berlin and the Schleswig-Holstein region, in exchange West Germany would receive the city of Hamburg and massive helps from East Germany for rebuild himself, not only humanitarian help but also military help with the send of the Volksarmee in West Germany for started the reconstruction of the Bundeswehr and also a full cooperation between the two Army in the exploration of the other German territory, also after this treaty the Berlin Wall was destroy by the DDR and the government declare officially the unification of Berlin under a unique flag, and also the western military personnel of Berlin was allowed of stay in Berlin or go at west, after this the DDR announce officially their left of the Warsaw Pact and the addition of the Russian and Central Asians member of the Group of Soviet Forces in Germany in the "Volksarmee", as their was far from Russia or other ex-part of the USSR, only the soldiers who came from the Baltics, Belarus, Ukraine and Moldova decide to return home. but accomplished as for the soldiers of the Warsaw Pact with military of the Landstreitkräfte der NVA.

Also the other soldiers of the Warsaw Part would be accomplished by the DDR soldiers as they need restore relations with their Marxist allied, but the reality will be an other, many if not all ex-Soviet Republics in the Baltics declare independence from the USSR and proclaim the creation of the successor state of the Baltic Republics of the 1940, when they was attacked by USSR, also Belarus proclaim independence and become a democratic state, Ukraine do the same and Moldova was annexed by Romania, at the end the DDR create new relations with the ex-soviet republics in Eastern Europe, but also with Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary.

Truth the war democracy

Then the government for don't have a high rate of unemployment started of create new reforms such as the allow of creation of little or middle private companies and large private companies but only if the state control the 50% of his capital, and also it have allow the creation of a democratic parliamentary system, but still socialist, and also allow the creation of free and fair elections, and would will set for the spring of the 1965, 

In the general elections of the 1965 for the first time the Christian Democratic Union was the first party in the Volkshammer, now located in the Reichstad. Gatering 250 seats, second behind the Socialist Unity Party with 150 seats and third behind the Liberal Democratic Party with 50 seats, this allowed the creation of a coalition government composed by the CDU and by the LDP, leaving the SUP as the main opposition party.

In the next decades East Germany would be able of grown economically and much faster then the Federal Republic of German, and changing also his economy and his form of state, and it was in that years there the DDR would be of have relations with Western Europe and Northern Africa, and also with the Middle East, in particular with Egypt and with the United Arab Republic, but also the DDR would create new relations with Kurdistan and Palestine, recognized by the DDR as sovereign nations fully independent, and the DDR would have better relations with them than with Iran or Saudi Arabia.
