The German Empire was founded by Adolf Hitler in 1933 after the downfall of the Weimar Republic. Hitler went on to start World War II, defeating great European powers and spreading German and Nazi influence across the globem leading to the Cold War throughout the 1950s, 60s, and 70s, during which period Germany became the first nation to send a human being to the moon and back. In 1984, Germany went on to start yet another world war when Dominik Hitler had Yuri Andropovof the Soviet Union assassinated, and emerged victorious over Russia, but failed to subdue the efforts of France and England in the west.
In modern day, the German Empire is among the world's great superpowers and is an economic powerhouse, the largest in the world in fact, again narrowly defeating the United States for its status. It is the leading exporter of common food-related goods such as wheat, fruits, nuts, etc. It also has the greatest worker produtivity in modern Europe, as well as being at the forefront of modern technological innovations along with Russia, China, and the United States. Free health care is provided for all citizens of Germany through a double-payer system, and Germans enjoy extremely high standards of living, as Germany is home to the two richest cities in the world: Berlin and Luxembourg.
The German Empire was founded in 1933 by Adolf Hitler after the dissolution of the Weimar Republic. Hitler quickly gained the support of the German people through a massive propaganda campaign and a promise to restore Germany to her rightful glory and free the people from the oppressive Treaty of Versailles. Hitler was able to gain total control of the nation with the Enabling Act of 1933, and began suppressing dissent and rearming the German military, against the Treaty of Versailles. He also established the office of Führer.
Adolf Hitler continued to maintain support among Germans through public works projects which created jobs, and repeated defiance of the Treaty of Versailles. Germany militarized areas strictly prohibited by the Treaty of Versailles, targeted minorities, such as Jews, with discriminatory laws, and eventually went on to annex Austria and eastern Czechoslovakia in 1938 and 1939 respectively, acquisitions considered to be the first imperial ambitions of the German Empire.
Throughout the next few years, Adolf Hitler would finance, aid, and manufacture fascist revolutions across Europe and South America, spreading his influence and support across the globe, even allying with the strong and growing Japanese Empire with the Iron Sun Pact. Among the nations he turned fascist are Romania, Spain, Argentina (a direct German puppet state), Brazil, and Chile.
Involvement in World War II
World War II (1942 - 1944) began when Great Britain and France declared war on Germany on August 1, 1942 due to concerns over Germany's ambitions and treatment of minorities, and bombed western Germany. A few days later, Germany would invade Luxembourg, Belgium, and Holland as launchpads for an invasion of France, capturing them within days. When the invasion of France came, the German blitzkrieg proved much too advanced for France, which fell within 14 days and was occupied by the Spanish.
Germany's only remaining enemies were the British and Americans after the fall of France, and Hitler implemented the Knirschen Strategy to defeat these two opponents. Operation Atlantis, part of the Knirschen Strategy, ensured that no American aid could reach Britain, and even sunk the majority of the American ships sent to aid Britain. The Wehrmacht was able to invade Britain on December 22, 1942, and crushed their ground forces in just 6 days, imposing the Treaty of Geneva upon them.
The joint attack on America by Japan and Germany lasted from January 1, 1943 to July 31, 1943, and was known as the False War because neither the Germans or Japanese truly made a substantial effort against the United States, save for a few small failed invasions and bombings. After the attack on America ended, America struck back at Germany, breaking the southern half of the Operation Atlantis lines by February of 1944.
The final days of World War II were a series of invasions carried out on southeastern Europe by Turkey and the German Empire, conquering nearly all of the Balkan Peninsula, ending with the German annexation of Hungary, Slovakia, and northern Romania.
Germany & the Cold War
After the end of World War II, Adolf Hitler established the New Order Project in hopes of spreading fascism and German influence across the globe, but made little progress throughout the late 40s and the 50s aside from gaining an ally in the British Union and creating the nations of Sahara and Mittelafrika. Several threats of nuclear war were made between the United States, Germany, and Russia, although nothing substantial ever took shape. In 1961, German forces worked with Americans to overthrow Fidel Castro in Cuba at the Bay of Pigs Invasion, an invasion Hitler used to orchestrate the Honduran Missile Crisis, gaining leverage over the United States and reclaiming the eastern half of India in the process. After gaining India, the Wehrmacht invaded Tibet and set up a fascist pro-Nazi government in 1962.
Hitler opened the German Space Travel Administration in 1963, which started off losing the Space Race to the Russians and Americans, but led Germany to victory eventually by sending Edward Fischer to the moon and returning him safely to earth. It should also be noted that the GSTA used the first numbers station, the Swedish Rhapsody Station, to communicate with spies in the Soviet Union to gain information about Soviet space technology.
In 1964, the Germans invaded southern China at a time that coincided with the invasion of eastern China by the UDN, butwas pushed out in 1968 when China was divided between the UDN and Soviet Union. Following this defeat, the Germans lost Tibet in 1969 an India in 1972. Later in 1972, when Dominik Hitler, son of Adolf, came to power, he eliminated wages for servants in Germany and began executing Jews in horrific manners, although not in large amounts. Tensions between Germany and America particularly escalated in the 1970s. Germany invaded the Azores Islanss and Iceland and moved nuclear missiles there to threaten the United States, prompting the United States to invade Greenland and move missiles there.
German Involvement in World War III
The German Empire is situated in central and eastern Europe, including the eastern Alps, and stretching through the Central Uplands and reaching the Caspian Sea in the east. It borders France in the west, Denmark in the north, Switzerland and Italy to the south, the Turkish Empire to the southeast, Finland in the northeast, and Russia in the east. It shares Lake Ladoga, the largest lake in eastern Europe, with Finland. It is the largest country in Europe and the 6th largest in the world at a total of 900,956 square miles of land area.The highest elevation in Germany is 12,461 feet above sea level and the lowest points are in the very northwest and southeast, each about 15 feet below sea level.
Climate & Wildlife
The climate throughout Germany varies by region. The western area of the country typically experiences warm water temperatures and humid winds. The west has a very temperate and seasonal climate, while the east experiences harsh winters and cool summers. The west receives rainfall year round, and the far east experiences dry seasons annually. Central Germany experiences a continental climate with cold winters and hot summers, and southern Germany experiences increased precipitation and colder temperatures year round.
Germany is home to a very diverse group of wildlife, spanning nearly all of the bio-geographical regions in Europe. The nation features almost every variety of wildlife in Europe, with several endangered species, although reserves and conservation areas are set up across the nation, especially in the eastern half. The Eurasian beaver is very common in the east, and deer, birds, rabbits, etc., tend to stay in the west where the climate is milder. Bears, however, are almost exclusive to the east, making cities such as Belgorod and Smolensk popular hunting destinations.
The German Empire is at the forefront of technological advancements with corporations such as Zuse, which created the first digital computer, and Viscom being the leading suppliers of smartphones and computers in the eastern hemisphere and being worth over $500 trillion each. People globally buy German technology. In fact, tech companies in many nations struggle to match the power German companies have over their own countries. The German Space Travel Administration is considered to be the most advanced space-related organization in the world, struggling only against NASA and the Russian Sputnik Corporation.
German medicine has also been largely influential throughout recent years, when a group of German and Russian scientists were able to cure some forms of cancer in 2011, which also generated considerable profits for Germany. German medical research facilities have also produced some of the most effective drugs of the past few decades, creating antibiotics capable of fighting ebola and other devastating illnesses.
Space travel is Germany's biggest success undoubtedly. The GSTA successfully started the first Martian colony of New Brussels in 2003, which now has a population of over 1200, and began the long process of terraforming the planet of Mars. Working with NASA, the GSTA began the Extraterrestrial Contact Initiative in 1997, and has also possibly made contact with alien life for the first time, receiving a response to one of their many messages sent to other planets. The message came from GJ1214b, a planet nicknamed "Waterworld" due to the fact that it is made up entirely of water.
Germany has a thriving tourism industry and is the most popular immigration destination in the world, with nearly 2.6 million immigrants from across the globe doming into the country according to the 2014 national census. Tourists are attracted to places all across Germany; nearly 800 million people visited in 2014. Some go to super cities like Luxembourg, Brussels, Hamburg, and Budapest for the thriving entertainment industry, others travel to less populated areas in the east to observe the wildlife or hunt for animals never seen in their own countries. Many people also enjoy the serene beaches of the Baltic Sea or to visit landmarks such as the Brandenburg gate.
