Germany will rise like the past. A glorious empire built to last

Let me tell you this, ain't no mystery. Wilhelm the Great shall go down in history!

The German Empireball, or just called the Second Reichball, is actually the countryball that was ReichTime.png Reichtangle's base and was Germany-icon.png Germanyball from 1871 to 1918. His glory days started from the Unification of Germany in 1871 to the abdication of November 1918, when he became a weaker Germany-icon.png Federal republic (Weimar Republicball). He was known for his strong culture, good diplomacy and for being the main antagonist of the First World war. He also used Gas-Weapons, wich actually were forbidden.


Unification (1815-1871)

German Stateballs had been divided for centuries, but it was only after the Enlightenment and French Revolutions displayed nationalist ideas for the first time, did a sense of German nationalism begin to inspire the various German stateballs. Their conquest by Napoleonic Franceball in the Napoleonic Wars had reorganized them into 39 stateballs by the time of the Congress of Vienna in 1815, under the German Confederation to replace the dissolved old HRE-icon.png HREball's rule. This new German Confederation was led by Austrian Empire-icon.png Austrian Empireball (Habsburgball) and Kingdom of Prussia-icon.png Prussiaball, the two strongest states in the Confederation.

However, as time went by Austrian Empire-icon.png Austrian Empireball's influence waned and Kingdom of Prussia-icon.png Prussiaball's grew steadily. The 1848 liberal revolutions had the effect of boosting Germanic nationalism and a sense of unity, but Kingdom of Prussia-icon.png Prussiaball was too conservative, so he declined the offer of the crown of a liberal unified Germany (with a constitutional monarchy only), that had been offered to him by the Congress of Frankfurt that year. Kingdom of Prussia-icon.png Prussiaball changed his mind about unification by setting about accomplishing it with "Blood and Iron" under Bismarckian ideals. In 1864 Kingdom of Prussia-icon.png Prussiaball and Austrian Empire-icon.png Austrian Empireball attacked Denmark-icon.png Denmarkball for Schlewsigball and Holsteinball, who were about to be annexed into Denmark-icon.png Denmarkball's dominions despite their German ethnicity. This cooperation was later dissolved in 1866 when Kingdom of Prussia-icon.png Prussiaball with help from Kingdom of Italyball turned on Austrian Empire-icon.png Austrian Empireball and his satellites, forcing him to cede his hegemony over the German stateballs like Hanoverball, who was annexed into the North German Confederationball in 1867.

France-icon.png Franceball was becoming alarmed at the new tilt of power, so made a ham-fisted attempt to intervene in the Austro-Prussian Brothers' War which came too little too late; then in 1868 demanded that Spain-icon.png Spainball not accept a German dynasty to rule him. The tensions erupted after North German Confederationball published an inflammatory telegram (the Ems dispatch) in 1870, provoking France-icon.png Franceball to declare war. France-icon.png Franceball was overconfident, and got overrun by the German stateballs' armies and defeated at Sedan and Metz. It was in his Palace of Versailles, in 1871 that the South German stateballs were drawn into the union, and the German Empireball was proclaimed there.

Bismarckian era, and Kulturkampf (1871-1890)

The end of the Franco-Prussian war saw France-icon.png Franceball wracked by a civil insurgency in the form of the Paris Commune, and the treaty of Frankfort in 1871 that ended hostilities forced her to pay reparations and give the German Empireball Alsace-Lorraine, making her a sworn enemy of the German Empireball. However, the reparations were paid swiftly, and German Empireball ended his occupation of France-icon.png Franceball as early as 1873. Her quick economic recovery startled him too; from now on they would be in a race to out-do each other.

German Empireball knew he had to keep a delicate balance of power in Europe in order to maintain peace towards his new state; so he signed the League of the Three Emperors (Dreikaiserbund) in 1879 after a war-scare with France-icon.png Franceball in 1875 almost led to an intervention by UK-icon.png UKball and Russian-Empire-icon.png Russiaball, who threatened war in the 1876-78 Balkan crisis. Russian-Empire-icon.png Russiaball and Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball now sided with German Empireball, who drew in Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball into a 'Triple Alliance' in 1882. Around this time he began a policy of 'Kulturkampf'; of encouraging Protestant, Germanic cultures over Catholicism, making it unpopular with the southern German Stateballs like Bavaria-icon.png Bavariaball, who remained autonomous in monarchial governance. Jew-icon.png Jewcubes in the Reich were also targeted. The policy stifled the growth of democracy in German Empireball that would lay the foundations for the authoritarian regimes of the next century.

German Empireball also hosted the 1884 Berlin Conference, to divide African clay up amongst the Great Powers, and at a subsequent 1885 Congo Conference voted to give Belgium-icon.png Belgiumball the Congo region. By now, German Empireball was at the heart of a network of alliances and emerging as the world's foremost developer of industrial output, eclipsing UK-icon.png UKball. Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball was allied via the 1887 Reinsurance Treaty, a renewal of the 1879 pact, France-icon.png Franceball remained diplomatically isolated, and UK-icon.png UKball was only a friendly rival. However, in 1888, he had a change of personality and became a brash, sabre-rattling brute instead of the suave statesman he was before.

Wilhelmine era; The Arms race and Tensions (1890-1914)

In 1890, German Empireball received Heligoland from British Empire-icon.png British Empireball, but he then refused to renew the Alliance with Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball, and as such, Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball was drawn closer to France-icon.png Franceball, who became allies in 1894, as both were suspicious of German Emireball's new attitude of sabre-rattling, France-icon.png Franceball, having broken out of the quarantine, now began to draw closer to British Empire-icon.png British Empireball, culminating in the Entente Cordiale in 1904. This was mainly due to German Empireball's new naval buildups, trying to challenge British Empire-icon.png British Empireball's dominance of the high seas with his fleets. His colonial policies caused friction too, with him being able to claim only small pieces of clay, despite his claim to want a 'place in the sun'. He caused friction with British Empire-icon.png British Empireball in the Boer War by sending the Kruger telegram to Transvaal-icon.png Transvaalball. He was part of the 1897 international dispatch to Crete, then he took Tsingtao from Qing-icon.png Qing Chinaball forcibly, then he purchased some islands from Spain-icon.png Spainball in the Pacific, then he was part of the 1900 Expedition in response to the Boxer Rebellion, leading to international outrage from German Empireball's orders to 'take no prisoners', leading to his nickname, 'The Hun'.

In 1905 German Empireball provoked a Moroccan crisis by sending reaffirmation to Morocco-icon.png Moroccoball in the face of France-icon.png Franceball's claims to his clay. However, German Empireball was humiliated at the 1906 Algeciras conference, where British Empire-icon.png British Empireball, France-icon.png Franceball, Spain-icon.png Spainball, Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball, and Russian-Empire-icon.png Russiaball stood against him. He was forced to withdraw, and his two allies of Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball and Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball came into conflict in the Balkans, with the 1908 Bosnia crisis, where German Empireball stood alone in backing Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball's annexation. At the same time, German Empireball began investing in Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball, despite his state as the 'Sick Man of Europe'. Meanwhile, British Empire-icon.png British Empireball and Russian-Empire-icon.png Russiaball drew together in 1907 to complete his encirclement, as nations across Europe worried about their new sabre-rattling neighbor. During the Balkan Wars which destabilized the delicate balance of power in the Balkans, German Empireball remained oblivious, instigating only another Moroccan crisis which turned out like the first one, ending with France-icon.png Franceball establishing a protectorate over Morocco-icon.png Moroccoball, and drawing closer to British Empire-icon.png British Empireball

So when the July Crisis broke out in mid-1914 after Serbia-icon.png Serbiaball shot Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball's archduke, German Empireball's "Blank Cheque" support of the ailing Empire saw him come into conflict with Serbia-icon.png Serbiaball's ally Russian-Empire2-icon.png Russian Empireball, and his ally France-icon.png Franceball, beginning the war to end all wars.

The Great War (World War I) (1914-1918)

Initially, German Empireball used his Schlieffen Plan; to attack France-icon.png Franceball through Belgium-icon.png Belgiumball and Luxembourg-icon.png Luxembourgball, bypassing her fortifications and ending up in Paris, then turning his armies east to fight Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball, who would take longer to mobilize fully. But Belgium-icon.png Belgiumball turned out to be more resistant than expected, and British Empire-icon.png British Empireball intervened on the Entente side, along with his Dominions and colonies, sending a BEF to France-icon.png Franceball's clay. German Empireball made good progress through Belgium-icon.png Belgiumball's clay, occupying most of it and committing atrocities in Louvain and Antwerp against civilians, claiming they were guerilla fighters. As France-icon.png Franceball withdrew her troops from Alsace to fight the German Empireball coming through Belgium, British Empire-icon.png British Empireball stepped in at the 1st Battle of Mons to defend the corner of Flanders still held in Allied hands (Ypres Lives!). Russian-Empire-icon.png Russiaball occupied East Prussia, so German Empireball had to divert troops to fight him from the advance on Paris. France-icon.png Franceball rushed out in taxis to defeat German Empireball at the Miracle of the Marne, stopping his advance at the gates of Paris. They then raced to the sea, digging entrenched positions along the way, and by November, trenches stretched from Switzerland-icon.png Switzerlandball clay to the North Sea.

In 1915, renewed offensives were made a Neuve-Chapelle and Mons try and throw the Germans off France-icon.png Franceball's clay. The Allies had overrun all of German Empireball's colonies overseas, and British Empire-icon.png British Empireball had blockaded the North Sea, starving German Empireball at home. Russian-Empire2-icon.png Russian Empireball was facing defeat after defeat and despite the entry of Italy onto the Entente side, the Balkans had fallen to the Central Powers, and Ottoman-icon.png Ottomanball was on their side now. German Empireball had to send troops to prop up his allies in the Balkans and Eastern Fronts (looking at you, Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball) and by 1916, the stalemate had lasted over a year on the Western Front. The opposing belligerents were evenly matched, with occasional charges over the top, through no man's land into enemy machine guns. Their fleets jarred at Jutland. As the massive offensives of Verdun and the Somme, at Passchendale and Cambrai saw tens of thousands of casualties on both sides on French soil, the Allies looked to convince USA-icon.png USAball to join the war. The announcement of the resumption of unrestricted submarine warfare by German Empireball and his 1917 Zimmerman Telegram to Mexico-icon.png Mexicoball resulted in USA-icon.png USAball declaring war on him; but at the same time, the exhausted Russian-Empire-icon2.png Russian Empireball had a revolution. German Empireball infected him with communism, resulting in a civil war, and Russian SFSR (old)-icon.png RSFSRball's signing of the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk in 1918, giving German Empireball tons of new clay and puppet stateballs in the East.

By spring 1918, however, German Empireball was also exhausted, and the Allied blockade affected the flow of supplies unilaterally. It was now a race to deploy his forces in the East westward before USA-icon.png USAball could arrive in full force; he made several great pushes in the Ludendorff Offensives that spring, but they ultimately broke down due to supply overstretch before Amiens, and when USA-icon.png USAball arrived, the Allies pushed back relentlessly in the Hundred Days' Offensive, breaking through German Empireball's Hindenburg defensive line. His allies collapsed starting with Bulgaria-icon.png Bulgariaball in September, then Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball and Ottoman-icon.png Ottomanball, and finally, German Empireball's troops mutinied, his navy scuttled itself, and he was forced to sue for peace, signing an armistice on the 11th of November 1918 that came into effect at 11 am that day, ending the Great War. A month before the surrender of Germany, an uprising happened known as German Revolution of 1918-1919. The Kaiser had by now abdicated, fleeing to neutral Netherlands-icon.png Netherlandsball's clay, and his stupid Brother Germany-icon.png Germanyball (Weimar Republicball) was forced to pay the price for his Brother's defeat in the war, leading to another Great War some 20 years later.
