Germany (German: Deutschland), officially the Confederation of German States (German: Konföderation der Deutschen Staaten), is a country in Central and Western Europe. It lies between the Baltic and North Sea to the north, and the Alps to the south. It borders The United Kingdoms of Scandinavia to the north, Sorbany, Silesia, Slovakia and the Czech Republic to the east, Italy and Grischun to the south, and France, Occitania, and the Netherlands to the west.

Today, Germany is a federal parliamentary republic led by a Premier. With 235 million inhabitants of its 25 constituent states, it is the second-most populous country in Europe after Russia, as well as the most populous member state of the Central European Union. Its executive capital and largest city is Berlin, and its legislative capital and financial centre is Frankfurt; the largest urban area is the Rheinland.

Germany is a great power with a strong economy; it has the largest economy in Europe. As a global leader in several industrial and technological sectors, it is both the world's third-largest exporter and importer of goods. A highly developed country with a very high standard of living, it offers social security and a universal health care system, environmental protections, and a tuition-free university education. Germany is also a member of the United Nations, the G7, the G20, and the Central European Union. Known for its long and rich cultural history, Germany has many World Heritage sites and is among the top tourism destinations in the world.

History[edit | edit source]

Background[edit | edit source]

Formation of Confederation[edit | edit source]

Revolution of Nations (1815-1818)[edit | edit source]

The Revolution of Nations was a period of high instability and civil rebellion on the most non-German states of the Holy Roman Empire, lasting from September 1815, a few months after the Congress of Frankfurt, to the signing of the Treaty of Prague, in 1818. The Revolution was motivated by nationalist thoughts motivated by the aftermath of the "Napoleonic" Wars, as a result of the spreading of the ideals of the French Revolution.

The Revolution began with the Fourth Defenestration of Prague, where a group of Czech nationalists and Liberals, called the Hand of Czechia, threw the representatives of the Imperial Diet from the Cernin Palace. The defenestration sparked a wave of similar events across the many non-German states of the HRE, with revolts happening across the empire.

Prague Conference[edit | edit source]

The German Confederation was created by the 7th Act of the Congress of Munich on 8 June 1819 after being alluded to in Article 6 of the 1819 Treaty of Prague, ending the tumultuous Revolution of Nations, as such ending the one-thousand-year-old Holy Roman Empire. The Confederation was formally created by a second treaty, the Final Act of the Ministerial Conference to Complete and Consolidate the Organization of the German Confederation. This treaty was not concluded and signed by the parties until 15 May 1820. States joined the German Confederation by becoming parties to the second treaty. The states designated for inclusion in the Confederation were:

The German Confederation at the time worked as a Customs Union, Free Trade and Movement Zone and Supranational Union similar to the modern day Central European Union, with the decisions of the body being decided in unison, but in the year of 1845 the German Parliament was created and the decision making was passed to the new body from the old Bundesrat. The German Confederation slowly centralized throughout the 19th and early 20th century, resulting in the federalization of the confederation and the start of the Great War. The federalization saw the departure of Lubeck, Kashubia, Silesia and modern day Sorbany from the Confederation, of them becoming independent nations allied to Germany.
