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


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.


In the game's intro, Adolf Hitler and his reinvigoration of the German economy are mentioned. Images of Berlin, Waldenburg, and the Ludendorff Bridge also appear.
