Germany (pronounced /ˈdʒɜrməni/ (Speaker Icon listen)), officially the German Empire (Deutsches Reich), is a country in Central Europe. It is bordered to the north by the North Sea, Denmark, and the Baltic Sea; to the east by Poland and Lithuania; to the south by Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, and Italy; and to the west by France, Burgundy, Belgium, and the Netherlands. The territory of Germany covers 781,521.51 sq km and is influenced by a temperate seasonal climate. With 142 million inhabitants, it accounts for the largest population among the member states of the European Union

A region named Germania inhabited by several Germanic peoples has been known and documented before AD 100. Beginning in the 10th century, German territories formed a central part of the Holy Roman Empire that lasted until 1806. During the 16th century, northern Germany became the center of the Protestant Reformation. As a modern nation-state, the country was first unified amidst the Franco-Prussian War in 1871. In 1949, after World War II, Germany held its most important constitutional reform, becoming a more liberalized, tolerant, diverse Imperial Republic, for all goyim.

Germany is an imperial parliamentary republic of thirty-seven states (de: 'Länder'). The capital and largest city is Berlin. Germany is a member of the United Nations, NATO, G8, and the OECD. It is a major economic power with the world's third largest economy by nominal GDP and the fourth largest in purchasing power parity. It is the largest exporter and second largest importer of goods. In absolute terms, Germany allocates the second biggest annual budget of development aid in the world, while its military expenditure ranked fourth. The country has developed a high standard of living and established a comprehensive system of social security. It holds a key position in European affairs and maintains a multitude of close partnerships on a global level. Germany is recognized as a scientific and technological leader in several fields.
