Germany, officially the Federal Republic of Germany, was a country in Europe before the Great War.


The affairs of the German region after World War II, such as the east and west partition in our world, are unknown due to the Divergence; although the continued existence of the Soviet Union strongly indicates that the German division was still in place. By 2060, as the European Commonwealth dissolved, the country fell into disarray, bickering and quarreling with its neighbors over the last few remaining resources on Earth.

Germany produced a number of energy weapons that were exported to the United States, and can still be found in the Post-Apocalyptic Wasteland.


Germany is the country of origin of the renowned PPK12 Gauss pistol, M72 Gauss rifle, MP9 10mm SMG and the Vindicator minigun. Many major technologies were created by Germans such as Hans Geiger and Werner Heisenberg.
