Germany

'''Germany''' ( with a largely temperate seasonal climate. Its capital (capital city) and largest city (List of cities in Germany by population) is Berlin. Germany is a major economic and political power (Great power) and traditionally a leader in many cultural, theoretical and technical fields.

With 80.7 million inhabitants, Germany is the most populous member state in the European Union. After the United States, it is also the second most popular migration destination (Immigration to Germany) in the world. Germany has the world's fourth-largest economy by nominal GDP (List of countries by GDP (nominal)) and the fifth-largest by PPP (List of countries by GDP (PPP)). As a global leader in several industrial and technological sectors, it is both the world's third-largest exporter (List of countries by exports) and third-largest importer (List of countries by imports) of goods. It is a developed country with a very high standard of living (List of countries by Human Development Index), featuring comprehensive social security (Welfare in Germany) that includes the world's oldest universal health care (Healthcare in Germany) system. Known for its rich cultural (Culture of Germany) and political (Politics of Germany) history (History of Germany), Germany has been the home of many influential philosophers (German philosophy), artists (German art), musicians (Music of Germany), cineasts (Cinema of Germany), entrepreneurs (List of Germans#Company founders), scientists and inventors (Science and technology in Germany). Germany was a founding member of the European Communities in 1957, which became the European Union in 1993. It is part of the Schengen Area, and has been a member of the Eurozone since 1999. Germany is a member of the United Nations, NATO, the G8, the G20 (G-20 major economies), the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) and the Council of Europe.

Various Germanic tribes have occupied what is now northern Germany and southern Scandinavia since classical antiquity. A region named Germania was documented (Germania (book)) by the Romans (Ancient Rome) before AD 100. During the Migration Period that coincided with the decline of the Roman Empire, the Germanic tribes expanded southward and established kingdoms throughout much of Europe. Beginning in the 10th century, German territories formed a central part of the Holy Roman Empire. The Latin name ''Sacrum Imperium'' (Holy Empire) is documented as far back as 1157. The Latin name ''Sacrum Romanum Imperium'' (Holy Roman Empire) was first documented in 1254. The full name "Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation" (''Heiliges Römisches Reich Deutscher Nation'') dates back to the 15th century. During the 16th century, northern German regions became the centre of the Protestant Reformation. The rise of Pan-Germanism inside the German Confederation, which had been occupied by France (French period) during the Napoleonic Wars, resulted in the unification of most of the German states (unification of Germany) in 1871 into the Prussian-dominated German Empire. As a result of the military defeat in World War I, and the German Revolution of 1918–1919, the Empire was replaced by the parliamentary Weimar Republic. The establishment (Machtergreifung) of the Third Reich, or Nazi Regime (Nazi Germany), in 1933 eventually led to World War II and the Holocaust. In 1945, the remnants (Flensburg government) of the Nazi regime surrendered (Surrender of Germany) to the Allied Powers (Allies of World War II). Over the next few years, Germany lost more of its territory (Former eastern territories of Germany) and was divided by the victors into Allied occupation zones (Allied-occupied Germany), and evolved into two states, East Germany and West Germany. On 3 October 1990 (German Unity Day), the country was reunified (German reunification), regaining full sovereignty about six months later.
