Federal Republic of Germany (German: Bundesrepublik Deutschland (help·info), IPA: [ˈbʊndəsʁepuˌb liːk ˈdɔytʃlant]), is a country in West-central Europe. It is bordered on the north by the North Sea, Denmark, and the Baltic Sea; on the east by Poland and the Czech Republic; on the south by Austria and Switzerland; and on the west by France, Luxembourg, Belgium, and the Netherlands.

History

In the early 20th Century, Germany was part of the Central Powers during World War One. Having lost the conflict, Germany was forced to sign a humiliating armistice that wrecked the nation's economy, causing hyperinflation. German confidence and power had been badly shaken. The loss of its colonies and its monarchy were grievous disasters resulting in a period of revolution and counter-revolution. During this borderline anarchistic time, two major political parties began to gain power, such as the National Socialist party, led by Adolf Hitler and the Communist Party of Germany. The struggle between the two political parties weakened them both. After the failed Beer Hall putsch, Adolf Hitler, NSDAP's leader was incarcerated and NSDAP fell slowly apart. After he was released, he mysteriously disappeared altogether, leading to the collapse of the Nazi party. With the NSDAP out of the picture and the communist party broken, the way was paved for centralist parties (such as the pre-existing Social Democratic Party), who rebuilt Germany into a major European power.

Great World War II

Germany was a crucially important member of the Allies, contributing its well trained and equipped military to the Allied cause. One of its top military commanders, General Gunther von Esling, was appointed as the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, while the German-born Jew Albert Einstein became one of the top researchers and inventors of the Allies. When the USSR began its attack on Europe, Germany was one of the first and hardest hit countries attacked by the Soviets and was eventually overtaken, forcing the German military to retreat into France (Although, considering that they only had about 1 million soldiers with 3 tank divisions and were being attacked by about 6 million Soviet soldiers with 14 tank divisions, it's actually very impressive that they held out as long as they did.). However, the Allied Forces under the lead of the German General von Esling recoiled and pushed the enemy back, but not without help from Tanya Adams, an German mercenary.

During the conflict, German forces had the best firepower compared, relatively, to the other military powers.

First Tiberium War

Germany continued to prosper after the war, becoming a prominent member of the Global Defence Initiative during the presidency of Helmut Bierman. Erich "Patch" Wulfe, a German soldier, was a member of Dead 6.

When the Sarajevo Temple of Nod was destroyed, intel was retreived that stated that the Brandenburg Gate was to be destroyed by Nod.

Second Tiberium War

During the Second Tiberium War fights occurred in the area around Hamburg where the Chemical Missile Facility and Prototype fighter factory were located.

Third Tiberium War

Most of Germany was declared a Yellow Zone after TW2 until recently GDI scientists discovered a way to drive back Tiberium by means of sonic resonators. They were able to turn a small area back into a Blue Zone which was called "New Eden".

During the Third Tiberium War, New Eden came under particularly heavy attack from the Scrin invaders. GDI forces did eventually manage to drive the Scrin from Germany. Cities attacked include Munich, Cologne and Stuttgart.
