The German Democratic Republic (GDR) or East Germany is a survivor nation located in eastern Germany.

Since the Great War, the DDR has managed to survive semi-intact. It has expanded its borders after a small war against West Germany and the NATO forces in Germany, with the Treaty of Hamburg, the War officially ended and the two German states began to have more friendly relations, despite their opposing form of government. East Germany has created a unique system with a mixed economy.

History

Great Nuclear War

Because it was split between Allied and Soviet forces, Berlin was not targeted by either side as they both believed they could capture it and didn't want to needlessly sacrifice their forces in the city. So many troops were stationed within Berlin, so it was irrational to destroy it, thus it was not targeted by nukes. The East German military managed to keep itself together with their leadership surviving because the Nuclear Strike against them had spared the East German military commanders and allowed them to effectively organize a East German and Soviet ground offensive against West Berlin and West Germany while both were still dealing with the Nuclear War. However, some rioting and fighting in the streets between citizens and East German police occurred, But thanks to the survival of much of the East German Military/Soviet Forces in Germany and East German/Soviet Leadership many Soviet/East German troops were able to be mobilized from their bases to squash the uprising before it even started. After the capture of West Berlin, the city of Hamburg (which was not nuked by the Soviets as they thought they could capture it) and the capture of all of Schleswig-Holstein, NATO/West Germany signed a ceasefire with East Germany to end the conflict so both sides could go about piecing back together their respective nations.

The leaders of East and West Germany met to hash out the new border and their relations, and after much debate and argumentation, they finally agreed that the current border would become the new border and East Germany would get all of Berlin and the Schleswig Holstein region if they returned Hamburg to West Germany and all the other conquered territory, so they could use it as their capital. The East and West Germans both agreed to the terms of the treaty and signed it. The treaty they signed would officially be known as the Treaty of Hamburg.

The treaty was signed on the 1st of May, 1964, according to the treaty, East Germany would will be receiving the whole city of Berlin and the Schleswig-Holstein region. In exchange, West Germany would receive the city of Hamburg and massive help from East Germany for rebuild itself, not only humanitarian help but also military help with the send of the Volksarmee in West Germany for the start of the reconstruction of the Bundeswehr and also a full cooperation between the two armies in the exploration of the other German territory. After this treaty, the Berlin Wall was destroyed by the DDR and the government declared officially the unification of Berlin under a unique flag, and also the western military personnel of Berlin was allowed to stay in Berlin or go west. After this, the DDR announced officially that they had left the Warsaw Pact and the addition of the Russian and Central Asian members of the group of Soviet Forces in Germany in the "Volksarmee", as they were far from Russia or any other ex-part of the USSR, only the soldiers who came from the Baltics, Belarus, Ukraine and Moldova decide to return home.

The other soldiers of the Warsaw Part would be accomplished by the DDR soldiers as they needed to restore relations with their Marxist allies, but the reality would be an other, many if not all ex-Soviet Republics in the Baltics declared independence from the USSR and proclaimed the creation of the successor state of the Baltic Republics, which were invaded in 1940. Belarus and Ukraine proclaimed independence and become democratic states. Moldova was also annexed by Romania. The DDR helped build cooperation among the former USSR Republics, as well as Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary.

Truth the war democracy

Then the government for don't have a high rate of unemployment started of create new reforms such as the allow of creation of little or middle private companies and large private companies but only if the state control the 50% of his capital, and also it have allow the creation of a democratic parliamentary system, but still socialist, and also allow the creation of free and fair elections, and would will set for the spring of the 1965, 

In the general elections of the 1965 for the first time the Christian Democratic Union was the first party in the Volkshammer, now located in the Reichstad gathering 250 seats, second behind the Socialist Unity Party with 150 seats and third behind the Liberal Democratic Party with 50 seats, this allowed the creation of a coalition government composed by the CDU and by the LDP, leaving the SUP as the main opposition party.

In the next decades East Germany would be able to grow economically and much faster then the Federal Republic of Germany, and changing also its economy and its form of state, and it was in that year there the DDR would be have had relations with Western Europe and Northern Africa, and also with the Middle East, in particular with Egypt and with the United Arab Republic, but also the DDR would create new relations with Kurdistan and Palestine, recognized by the DDR as fully independent sovereign nations, and the DDR would have better relations with them than with Iran or Saudi Arabia.
