Germany, officially the German Empire ( German: Deutsches Reich), is a country in Central Europe. It is bordered to the north by the North Sea, Denmark, and the Baltic Sea; to the east by Poland, Lithuania, West Galicia, German Bohemia and German Moravia; to the south by German Austria and Switzerland; and to the west by the Republic of France, Luxembourg, Belgium, and the Netherlands. The territory of Germany covers an area of 570,857 km2 and is influenced by a temperate seasonal climate. With 81.8 million inhabitants, it is the most populous member state of the European Union.

A region named Germania, inhabited by several Germanic peoples, was documented before AD 100. Beginning in the 10th century, German territories formed a central part of the Holy Roman Empire, which lasted until 1806. During the 16th century, northern Germany became the centre of the Protestant Reformation. As a modern nation-state, the country was first unified amidst the Franco-Prussian War in 1871. After World War I, in 1919, The German Empire was dismantled, and after the defeat in the World War II, Germany was divided in three states (East Germany, West Germany and Prussia), which merged in 1990, and the monarchy was restored in 1991. West Germany and Prussia were founding members of the European Community in 1957, which became the EU in 1993. It is part of the Schengen Area and adopted the euro in 1999.
