The Kingdom of Swabia-Württemberg (Königreich Schwaben-Württemberg) is a survivor nation in the south-west of the former Federal Republic of Germany. It is regarded to be the successor to both the Kingdom of Württemberg and the medieval Duchy of Swabia.



The northern and western parts of the Bundesland of Baden-Württemberg were heavily attacked on Doomsday, due largely to the presence of NATO military installations. Targets included

  • Stuttgart
  • Heidelberg
  • Mannheim
  • Heilbronn
  • Göppingen
  • Freiburg

The southeast portion of the state was spared nuclear attack. It also received limited protection from fallout due to the Swabian Alb mountain region.

In the following months, cities and towns near the West German-Swiss border faced a wave of refugees fleeing the devastation. Although some passed by on the way to Switzerland, many stayed. In most of these communities, the situation became untennable at best as supplies diminished and cases of radiation sickness and other diseases increased. Things went from bad to worse in 1985 as the Swiss closed their borders and began to send back some of the refugees.

As of January 1, 2010, the Kingdom's de facto borders are the eastern edge of the Black Forest, the Neckar River, the Lech River and the border with the Alpine Confederation. The Kingdom also claims the remainder of the former state of Baden-Württemberg.

The Kingdom is divided into several Provinces (Provinzen). They are listed as: *Provinz Württemberg (Capital at Friedrichschafen) *Provinz Schwaben (Capital at Kempten) *Provinz Danube-Iller (Capital at Ulm) *Provinz Hohenzollern (Capital at Sigmaringen) *Provinz Ost-Baden (Capital at Villingen) *Provinz Ravensburg (Capital province)

Each province has its own legislature and is represented by a Governor, who is (except for Ravensburg) nominated by King Friedrick and approved by the provincial legislature. King Friedrick himself acts as Governor of Ravensburg.


The Basic Law (Grundgesetz) for the Kingdom of Swabia-Württemberg is, with the exception of an unelected monarch serving as head of state, an almost word-for-word copy of the constitution of the former Federal Republic of Germany.


The Kingdom has a bicameral legislature to pass legislation and budgets.. The Volksversammlung (People's Assembly) is directly elected mainly through proportional representation. The Rat der Provinzen (Provincial Council) is chosen by the legislatures of the provinces. The Volksversammlung elects a Kanzler (Chancellor) to lead the executive branch, and can remove the Kanzler through a no-confidence vote. The legislature has the sole power to declare war against another power.
