Nazi.gif Nazi Germany

Nazi Germany (Third Reich) was a countryball in Central Europe, the evil countryball was formed in 1933. He had ultimately hated many types of people, but the most hated type were the Jewcubes. He believed the Judes were the causes of all of his problems. He also believed they caused him to lose WWI, which was based on no evidence. He also hated communists, as well as Gypsies, Slavs, Catholics and homosexuals, etc. His ideal Nazi utopia was a racial hierarchy with anyone that's of German descent or a German to be on top, followed by other Aryan races. He is a jew killer

Fascism was about Germans as part of the dominant, Aryan, race. National Socialism is quite simply a more extreme version of Fascism. The Nazi Regime wanted to make the world an Aryan world. However, not only Germans were the master race, Nordic people were also seen as Aryan. Nazis wanted racial and ethnic perfection. Contrary to belief, Nazism disproved of Islam as well but not as much as the Jews and Catholics.

He believed in the Aryan Race or, Germanic people being superior to everyone else. Once born, he started to prepare for the inevitable war. He started to build such a strong and powerful army that would strike fear into the hearts of the enemy. He also tried to kill all his enemies that existed in his country by making mass genocide camps, commonly referred to as "concentration camps," collecting Israel-icon.png Israelcube with secret police called the Gestapo (although this does not excuse the allies war crimes or their bombings on him).

He was really successful in his death camps. He needed friends and more importantly, allies to accomplish world dominance. He became friends with Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball because he was fascist like him. Also, Italy wasn't terrible, though he wasn't exactly the best either. Also he became friends with Japanese-Empire-icon.png Empire of Japanball because he was extremely powerful and he could make a strong diversion for threats. His first move as a almighty powerful empire started by regaining other Germanic states, and then, most of Europe. (Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Denmark, the Netherlands, Norway, France, Belgium, Caucasus states, and some Yugoslav countries). Eventually, Japanese-Empire-icon.png Japanball bombed Pearl Harbor, Hawaii of USA-icon.png USAball, and forced USAball to join the war. As soon as he declared war on Japanese-Empire-icon.png Japanball, declared war on USA-icon.png USAball. Eventually, USA-icon.png USAball dropped two atomic bombs on two Japanese cities, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and Japanese-Empire-icon.png Japanball surrendered. The war ended on Auguest 14, 1945 with more than 50 million people dead, 14 million of them dying from the Holocaust.

Naziball's swastika is often replaced with a blue letter "f" (sometimes four "f"-s forming a swastika Facebook swastika.png) to avoid another ban on Facebook-icon.png Facebook.

History

Buildup to War (1933- Sept. 1939)

After German Empire-icon.png German Empireball lost the Great War, Germany-icon.png Germanyball (Germany-icon.png Weimar Republicball at the time) was humiliated by the Allied powers of the War, who forced him to sign the Treaty of Versailles in 1919, which took away some of his clay, and also limited his power. Germany-icon.png Germanyball experienced hyperinflation and France-icon.png Franceball invading part of his clay in 1923, after he tried to postpone his reparations, but eventually got back on his feet, and joined the League of Nations in 1925. In 1929, However,  USA-icon.png USAball experienced a stock market crash, which affected all of his indebted, including Germany-icon.png Germanyball, who quickly lost all his money. As a result of his poverty, he renamed himself Nazi Germanyball in 1933, and re-anschlussed his demilitarized clay, known as the Saar, in 1935, then the Rhineland in 1936.  Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball, had become fascist in 1922 and had invaded Albania-icon.png Albaniaball's clay in 1926, the Abssyniaball's clay in 1935-36. During this time, Nazi Germanyball focused on re-developing German armaments industries into a military-industrial complex; his new propaganda industry produced films like Triumph of the Will but was humiliated in the 1936 Olympic Games by USA-icon.png USAball.

Meanwhile, in Europe, in 1936-37  Nazi Germanyball helped fellow fascists to destroy the Spanish republicans in Spain-icon.png Spainball, and bomb Basque-icon.png Basqueball in the Spanish Civil War. In 1938  Nazi Germanyball Anschlussed  Austria-icon.png Austriaball and it's clay, and did the same to Czech-icon.png Czechoslovakiaball and his Sudetenland clay a few months later.  Slovakia-icon.png Slovakiaball becomes independent and Bohemia-icon.png Bohemiaball and Moravia-icon.png Moraviaball become protectorates. In 1938, UK-icon.png UKball and  France-icon.png Franceball met  Nazi Germanyball in Munichball, part of his clay to sign an agreement, in which  Nazi Germanyball agreed to stop expanding his clay. However, when he broke the agreement in September 1939 by invading Second Polish Republic-icon.png Polandball's clay, under a secret non-aggression pact with Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball, UK-icon.png UKball and France-icon.png Franceball declared war against Nazi Germanyball, after he refused to withdraw from Second Polish Republic-icon.png Polandball's clay.

Blitzkrieg! (Sept. 1939- Aug. 1943)

Around this time, fellow fascist ball, the Italian-Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Italyball also anschlussed Albania-icon.png Albaniaball and Ethiopia-icon.png Ethiopiaball, and became allies with Nazi Germanyball and Japanese-Empire-icon.png Japanball in 1940. Nazi Germanyball  anschlussed the clay of Denmark-icon.png Denmarkball,  Norway-icon.png Norwayball,  Luxembourg-icon.png LuxembourgballBelgium-icon.png Belgiumball (family tradition), and Netherlands-icon.png Netherlandsball, then raped France-icon.png Franceball in May 1940, creating a puppet state, Vichy France-icon.png Vichy Franceball, who inherited France-icon.png Franceball's clay, since she had fled to UK-icon.png UKball's clay.  Nazi Germanyball then tried to bomb UK-icon.png UKball's clay but was ultimately defeated and forced to withdraw from it.

Meanwhile, Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball tried to rape Finland-icon.png Finlandball, but he beat up Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball, who raped Estonia-icon.png EstoniaballLatvia-icon.png Latviaball,  Moldova-icon.png Moldovaball and Lithuania-icon.png Lithuaniaball instead, causing Nazi Germanyball to wonder if Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball was really that stronk after all. In 1941, Nazi Germanyball invaded Kingdom of Yugoslavia-icon.png Kingdom of Yugoslaviaball and Kingdom of Greece-icon.png Greeceball's clay, with some help from Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball, who later invaded Monaco-icon.png Monacoball's tiny clay. In Yugoslavia he set up multiple puppet states. Hungary-icon.png HungaryballRomania-icon.png Romaniaball, and Bulgaria-icon.png Bulgariaball decided to ally with Nazi Germanyball, in hopes of not being raped by him. Nazi Germanyball then decided to invade Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball's clay in June 1941.

In June 1941, Nazi Germanyball invaded both Soviet-icon.png Sovietball's clay, and Vichy France-icon.png Vichy Franceball's clay in North Africa, his half-brothers French Algeria-icon.png French Algeriaball, Tunisia-icon.png Tunisiaball, and Libya-icon.png Libyaball. He also bombed Malta-icon.png Maltaball's clay, but since this is really rather irrelevant we will move on. USA-icon.png USAball helped UK-icon.png UKball in North Africa, to defend Egypt-icon.png Egyptball at El Alamein, and eventually liberated France-icon.png Franceball's adoptive North African children from their evil half-brother's control. In 1943, USA-icon.png USAball invaded Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball's southern clay, and UK-icon.png UKball liberated Kingdom of Greece-icon.png Greeceball's island clay.

In Eastern Europe, Nazi Germanyball had invaded most of Soviet-icon.png Sovietball's clay, pillaging, murdering, and making slaves of Byelorussian SSR-icon.png Byelorussian SSRball, Ukrainian SSR-icon.png Ukranian SSRball, Ukrainian SSR-icon.png Moldovan SSRball, Estonian SSR-icon.png Estonian SSRball, Latvian SSR-icon.png Latvian SSRball, and Lithuanian SSR-icon.png Lithuanian SSRball, with his new ally Finland-icon.png Finlandball, but was bogged down in the winter of 1942-43 by bad weather and good planning by Ukrainian SSR-icon.png Sovietball's admiral Zhukov. He was forced to retreat, and was defeated at Kursk and Stalingrad on Ukrainian SSR-icon.png Sovietball's clay in 1943. By September 1943, Ukrainian SSR-icon.png Sovietball had reclaimed most of the SSRballs' clay, and Nazi Germanyball was on the retreat. In Europe, however, Nazi Germanyball was too busy murdering Israel-icon.png Jewcubes on Poland-icon.png Polandball's clay to notice Romania-icon.png Romaniaball, Finland-icon.png Finlandball, Iran-icon.png Iranball was forced to betray him after the invasion of his clay led by Soviet-icon.png Sovietball UK-icon.png UKball as well as Bulgaria-icon.png Bulgariaball by the soviets. USA-icon.png USAball pushed up Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball's clay, but Nazi Germanyball took the rest of it before USA-icon.png USAball could liberate it, and he created Italian Social Republic-icon.png Italian Social Republicball. Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball then switched sides to join the Allies. Meanwhile, UK-icon.png UKball helped liberate Abyssiniaball from Italyball in East Africa.

The Tide Turns (Dec. 1943- May. 1945)

By January 1944, USA-icon.png USAball had liberated most of Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball's clay and Philippines-icon.png Philippinesball's clay in the Battle of Manila, and Soviet-icon.png Sovietball had liberated Poland-icon.png Polandball and Moravians-icon.png Czechoslovakiaball clay. UK-icon.png UKball and France-icon.png Franceball then staged an invasion to liberate France-icon.png Franceball's clay from her evil son at Monte Cassino in 1944, causing Vichy France-icon.png Franceball to surrender to the Allies (family tradition?). In June 1944, UK-icon.png UKball, and his sons Canada-icon.png Canadaball and USA-icon.png USAball landed on France-icon.png Franceball's former clay, and liberated Paris, in September 1944.

In Europe, after the Battle of the Bulge in winter 1944-45, Nazi Germanyball had retreated from the Ardennes, and Luxembourg-icon.png Luxembourgball, Belgium-icon.png Belgiumball, and Netherlands-icon.png Netherlandsball had been liberated, the last one by Canadaball. Meanwhile, Italy-icon.png Italyball and Monaco-icon.png Monacoball's clay had been liberated by USA-icon.png USAball, and Soviet-icon.png Sovietball had liberated Yugoslavia-icon.png Yugoslaviaball, Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball, Austria-icon.png Austriaball, Poland-icon.png Polandball, and Albania-icon.png Albaniaball's clay, rescuing the Israel-icon.png Jewcubes that had not been murdered, and had even entered Nazi Germanyball's clay. By March 1945, Soviet-icon.png Sovietball had won the Battle of Berlin, and was in the heart of Nazi Germanyball's clay. UK-icon.png UKball and USA-icon.png USAball joined him soon afterwards, and Nazi Germanyball was mortally wounded in late April, and committed suicide on the 8th of May, 1945, ending the war in Europe. His children Germany-icon.png West Germanyball, and East Germany-icon.png East Germanyball were adopted respectively by USA-icon.png USAball and Soviet-icon.png Sovietball. ReichRawr-icon.png ReichRawr (aka the Saar) was adopted by France-icon.png Franceball, but eventually given to Germany-icon.png West Germanyball. Norway-icon.png Norwayball and Denmark-icon.png Denmarkball became free once again after Nazi Germanyball's death in May 1945.

According to Austria-icon.png Dr. Österreich, he really cannot into space, but his V-2 almost made it, but it had nein balls in it. At least can into anschluss because he of startings World War 2. To start off, Luftwaffeball actually created this for the Führer. He of wantings to blitzkrieg UKball, so Naziball agreed. The Allies thought this weapons is the Luftwaffe's anschluss. Luftwaffeball even used his V-2 rockets to bomb Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball, too, Until his death, the Allies captured many of his rockets and kept it for war museums. Dr. Österreich of believings that the rocket symbolizes that Naziball will into space (if he of ressurected by his Germany-icon.png son). In conclusion, when Naziball saw his V-2, he said: "Das ist einige harte Raketen Sie haben!" (That's some tough rocket you have!) Luftwaffeball was of pleased when his Führer was impressed of his creation.
