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

    History

    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 German Confederationball to replace the dissolved old HREball's rule.

    This new German Confederationball was led by Austrian Empireball and Prussiaball, the two strongest states in the Confederation.

    However, as time went by Austrian Empireball's influence waned, and Prussiaball's grew steadily. The 1848 liberal revolutions had the effect of boosting Germanic nationalism and a sense of unity, but Prussiaball was too conservative, so he declined the offer of the crown of a liberal unified Germany.

    In 1864 Prussiaball and Austrian Empireball attacked Denmarkball for Schlewsigball and Holsteinball, who were about to be annexed into Denmarkball's dominions despite their German ethnicity.

    This cooperation was later dissolved in 1866 when Prussiaball with help from Kingdom of Italyball turned on Austrian Empireball and his satellites, forcing it to cede its hegemony over the German stateballs like Hanoverball, who was annexed into the North German Confederationball in 1867.

    Franceball was becoming alarmed at the new tilt of power, so it made an attempt to intervene in the Austro-Prussian Brothers' War which came too late. Then in 1868 it demanded that Spainball not accept a German dynasty to rule it. Tensions erupted after North German Confederationball published an inflammatory telegram (the Ems dispatch) in 1870, provoking Franceball to declare war.

    Franceball was overconfident, and got overrun by the German stateballs' armies and defeated at Sedan and Metz. It was in its Palace of Versailles, in 1871 that the South German stateballs were drawn into the union, and German Empireball was proclaimed there.

    Bismarckian era, and Kulturkampf (1871-1890)

    German Empireball knew it had to keep a delicate balance of power in Europe in order to maintain peace towards its new state, so it signed the League of the Three Emperors (Dreikaiserbund) in 1879. Russiaball and Austria-Hungaryball now sided with German Empireball, who drew in Italyball into a 'Triple Alliance' in 1882.

    Around this time it began a policy of encouraging Protestantism over Catholicism, making it unpopular with the southern German Stateballs like Bavariaball, who remained autonomous in monarchial governance. Jewcubes in the Reich were also targeted. The policy stifled the growth of democracy in the 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 Belgiumball the Congo region. However, in 1888, it had a change of personality and became a brash, saber-rattling brute barburus instead of the suave statesman it was before.

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

    Franceball broke out of the quarantine and began to draw closer to UKball, culminating in the Entente Cordiale in 1904. This was mainly due to German Empireball's new naval buildups, trying to challenge British Empireball's dominance of the high seas with its fleets.

    Its colonial policies caused friction too, with it being able to claim only small pieces of clay. It took Tsingtao from Qing Chinaball forcibly, then it purchased some islands from Spainball in the Pacific, then it 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'.

    When the July Crisis broke out in mid-1914 after Serbiaball shot Austria-Hungaryball's archduke, German Empireball's support of the ailing Empire saw it come into conflict with Serbiaball's ally Russian Empireball, and its ally Franceball, beginning World War I.

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

    Initially, German Empireball used its Schlieffen Plan; to attack Franceball through Belgiumball and Luxembourgball, bypassing its fortifications and ending up in Parisball, then turning his armies east to fight Russian Empireball, who would take longer to mobilize fully.
    However Belgiumball turned out to be more resistant, and UKball intervened on the Entente side. German Empireball managed to get through Belgiumball's clay, occupying most of it. As Franceball withdrew its troops from Alsaceball to fight the German Empireball coming through Belgiumball, UKball stepped in at the 1st Battle of Mons to defend the corner of Flandersball still held by the Allies. (Ypres Lives!).

    Franceball managed to defeat German Empireball at the Miracle of the Marne, stopping its advance at the gates of Parisball. They then raced to the sea, digging entrenched positions along the way, and by November, trenches stretched from Switzerlandball clay to the North Sea.

    By 1916, the stalemate had lasted over a year on the Western Front. The opposing belligerents were evenly matched, with occasional charges made. 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 USAball to join the war.

    German Empireball resuming unrestricted submarine warfare and its 1917 Zimmerman Telegram to Mexicoball resulted in USAball declaring war on it.

    At the same time, the exhausted  Russian Republicball had a revolution. German Empireball infected it with communism, resulting in a civil war, and Russian SFSRball'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, German Empireball was also exhausted, and the Allied blockade affected the flow of supplies unilaterally. It was now a race to deploy its forces in the East westward before USAball could arrive in full force. It made several great pushes that spring, but they ultimately broke down due to supply overstretch before Amiens.

    When USAball arrived, the Allies pushed back relentlessly, breaking through German Empireball's defensive line. Its allies collapsed throughout the next few months, German Empireball was forced to sue for peace, ending the Great War.

    A month before its surrender, an uprising happened known as German Revolution of 1918-1919. The Kaiser abdicated, fleeing to the Netherlandsball's clay, and its child Weimar Republicball was forced to pay the price for its father 's defeat in the war, leading to another Great War some 20 years later.

    2. Color them black, white and red
    3. Draw eyes and you are finished.
    4. OPTIONAL: Draw a pickelhaube at the top if you want
    5. In others words draw Yemen flag but upside down!
