Greater Germany Infobox by Lehnaru Greater Germany Infobox by Lehnaru
An infobox template ripped straight from Wikipedia, customized by me, featuring my favourite ideal Greater Germany. I had very little idea what I was doing with the "Government" and "Legislature" sections, so feel free to criticize. Otherwise, everything else is pretty much how I want it. I still have no PoD or backstory as of yet.

Reich wouldn't be a monarchy? It must be Deutsche Republik, I believe.

This is an old map, but I think my idea behind it was that the "Weimar Republic" was still called Deutsches Reich :P

Wait area 40th in the world? Which 39 states are bigger than this chunk then? I guess you will have to fix that.

To be fair, I lazily ignored all the butterflies such a Germany would cause and just used modern Wikipedia numbers ;)

No I checked it. There were no states that would be so hardly butterflied. And its your alternate history, so lets presume everything else went as in real timeline.

At that size it would be a Reich with a constitution.

Awesome project, why didnīt I find this before? You must add your picture to much more groups to get attention!

Btw. the Motto Suum Cuique would be in German: Jedem das Seine.

And I must say Deutsches Reich would work, not like Fenn-O-Manic said doesnīt work, because Reich does actually not mean, if it is monarchy or republic, Reich is just a territorial name. It comes from the german word Bereich, which means just region or part of a land.

I'm not involved in any groups!

I'd thought about using Jedem das Seine, but I like the Latin better, and the German has a negative reputation. I could get away with it by saying this would be an infobox for the English Wikipedia and that English-speakers might refer to the Latin form of the motto as opposed to the German, as in the name Germany itself? ;)

No, no, no! I meant that the German translation "Jedem das Seine" has a bad image due to its association with the Nazis.

I think you mix it up, the phrase "Gott mit uns" "God (be) with us" was used in Prussia and later by the Wehrmacht.
But Jedem das Seine, is a phrase of tolerance, which was of course never used by the Nazis, because they donīt tolerate others^^

The phrase was above the gates of Buchenwald :S

No XD At Buchenwald was "Arbeit macht frei" (work makes free).

Jedem das Seine was never touched by ns^^

I wouldn't call Reich Republic. German Realm would be better translation, I guess.

Eh, its English long-form name is Republic of Germany because it's a Republic, just like Reich doesn't mean Empire in the case of Imperial Germany. It would definitely not be known in English as German Realm, despite that being the proper translation.
