The Federal Republic of Germany (German: Bundesrepublik Deutschland, 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.
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: 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 the NSDAP started to fall 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.
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.
Second Tiberium War
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.
