Report regarding R-3378-DE "SKP Universe"

These documents contain a summary of information recovered during a partial reality conjunction (Incident #028-DE/I2) from the local network of the parallel reality-3378-DE (unofficially called the "SKP universe'').

Much of the information was obtained from the Internet there by an automated web crawler, and came from a Wikipedia equivalent called "Encyclopedia'', as well as news sites, government sites and web pages, and documents from the SKP intranet. The amount of secured data is approximately 380 GB and has been pre-sorted in an automated fashion, but summarized manually. The sifting of the documents has not yet been completed, so it cannot be ruled out that findings will be revised at a later date.

Furthermore, due to the automatic revision of the data, there may be disruptions when loading text and, in particular, images.

It is at the same time fascinating and frightening how different and yet similiar our realities are. For example, in most cases they have exactly the same borders as we do, only that over here states are separated from each other, with them it is the borders of the provinces of their huge empires.
There are in parts identical persons in both universes, partly with an almost identical curriculum vitae. Our equivalents, for example, are often employed there by the SKP instead of the SCP Foundation. My own equivalent there is also an SKP historian. She married the same man and her children have the same names. Still, we would probably kill each other if we met. However, by far not all people are equally present in both worlds, some were never born there and there are some individuals in R-3378-DE who have no equivalent here. Interestingly, it can happen that identical persons from the base reality and the mirror universe do not have the same parents.

The Großdeutsche Reich

The Großdeutsche Reich is a national socialist, oligarchically ruled state that encompasses almost all of Europe, and occupies large parts of the world in the form of colonies. The remaining autonomous states; the Ottoman Empire, the Empire of Japan and Argentina; are dependent on the Großdeutsche Reich and do not have full sovereignty.

Racial Segragation

There is a strict racial segregation that dominates everyday life. The race is recorded on the ID and is determined by genetic testing and pedigrees. Attempts to determine race by external characteristics have been largely abandoned, but are still used as circumstantial evidence, such as skin color or certain facial features.

I would like to spare you the details of the crude machination of racial laws, this one makes your toenails roll up. Therefore, here is only a summary. — Dr. Bauer

Germans

The status of the Germans is based on the idea of the übermensch, and the master race from the 1930s, albeit in a modified form. While the German was initially portrayed as capable and hard-working, the image changed in the direction of intellectual superiority. A large part of the Germans left physical work to "lower races". Not only those who are German but of Germanic descent are considered German, including Scandinavians, Dutch and English. These "New Germans" are indoctrinated from childhood so that they think they are real Germans and do not develop a deviant identity. Nevertheless, there are "Old Germans", who actually originated in Germany, who consider "New Germans" to be upstarts and see them as inferior to themselves, even though they are equal under the law. In turn, some New Germans consider Old Germans arrogant and narrow-minded.

Through genetic manipulation and cybernetics, the average IQ of Germans has been raised to 140, and as a result each of them possesses noticeably greater physical condition and strength than other people. Many Germans are entrepreneurs, scientists, engineers, civil servants, high-ranking military officers and artists, especially architects, actors and designers. Each profession is usually preceded by two years of military service in the Wehrmacht or the Waffen-SKP because of compulsory military service. Men who refuse military service face reprisals and discrimination. Among unmarried, childless women, military service is not uncommon, but they can refuse it without being punished by society. Married women and/or mothers are excluded from military service by law.

Unlike all other races, Germans are not required to work. There is an unconditional basic income of 2000 RM per month net (1 RM ≈ 1 €). Germans do not pay value-added tax, enjoy free high-quality health care, and because of the unconditional basic income, there is no compulsory pension or disability insurance, but there is the option to take out further private insurance. Due to strict racial segregation and a significant decline in births, the number of Germans worldwide is about 80 million. The GDR counteracts this with substantial subsidies and benefits for mothers. Germans are prohibited from working as prostitutes or engaging in other immoral activities.

Among Germans, striving to conform to the "German ideal" is widespread. Even small flaws can be seen as dishonorable. This is the basis of the constant drive for progress and to outdo others, which characterizes German society, but which has steadily declined since the Second World War. There is also a cult of heroes. In Nuremberg there is a Hall of Heroes, where people who are considered heroes of the empire are buried, and shrines are erected for them, where they can be commemorated. It is estimated that about 15,000 people are buried there. In addition, there is a Mark of the Fallen in Cologne; a walkable monolith on the site where Cologne Cathedral stood before its destruction by an American atomic bomb, engraved with the names of all Germans and worthy non-Germans who died for the German Reich and its people, including civilians and rescue workers who died providing aid. Currently, the names of approximately 56 million people are recorded there. In addition, there are numerous other monuments and general shrines to heroes. That achievements are rewarded with medals and other honors is common.

Only a few prefer life outside the cities. Life in the countryside is considered un-German, and befitting the non-German rabble. Germans who own estates and large rural holdings are exempt.

Germans can - for a fee - treat themselves or their children to "paranormalies"1' of the SKP to induce anomalous characteristics. Particularly popular are increases in intelligence, a photographic memory, immunity to disease, reduction in the need for sleep, and sustained physical fitness.

Europeans

Non-German Europeans, including people of European origin from other continents, except Slavs, lead a life similar to ours. The residential areas of the Germans are for them like villa districts for normal earners (in fact, most Germans there live in houses that would already be considered a villa in our country). Germans resemble what managers and other top earners are in our world.

Europeans are generally not subject to reprisals. Their legal and economic situation is largely the same as that of normal citizens in the FRG. However, there is a duty to work. Those who lose their jobs and do not find a new one within a month are assigned a job in a state-owned enterprise. For them, moreover, almost the same insurances are obligatory as in our reality, with the exception of health insurance; health care for Europeans is also state-run, and the benefits correspond more or less to those of the public health insurances in our country. Private supplementary insurances are possible.

There is a compulsory military service of two years for all men. Those who are not fit for military service due to health reasons have to do alternative service or pay a (financial) compensation. European women are also allowed to do military service, but again married women and mothers are excluded.

Marriages between Germans and Europeans are possible, but the registry offices require a certificate of purity showing that the European partner is not of "inferior" descent. Similarly, marriages between Europeans and Slavs, Asians or Indians are possible, but this can lead to reprisals and discrimination. Children resulting from such a union, so-called "half-breeds," enjoy no status as Germans and are considered subordinate to them. However, due to the fact that their genes are augmented free of charge before birth thanks to the German parent, they are nevertheless preferred to Europeans because of their usually above-average performance as a result.

Europeans are excluded from some medals or levels of medals and decorations, or have their own equivalents, but it is no less common to recognize achievements of Europeans with honorary expressions. There is the Memorial in Brussels, where burials and commemorations of deserving Europeans take place. A few non-Germans have been given burial in the Hall of Heroes, including Benito Mussolini.

Europeans make up the bulk of the workforce in Großdeutschland, especially in jobs with no, or little, physical strain. European entrepreneurs, with a little skill, can certainly achieve considerable wealth and luxury. The average income is RM25,000/year, with a 40 hour work week and at least 24 paid vacation days.

With the appropriate fortune, Europeans can also be treated by genetic manipulation, cybernetics, or anomalies to bring about certain characteristics, though there are restrictions on this that do not apply to Germans, such as reality-altering powers and abilities with great destructive potential.

Slaws, Asians, Arabs and Indios

Slavs, Asians, Arabs and Indians are considered "inferior races" and suffer from limited rights in the GDR. Exceptions are Japanese and Turks (according to the racial laws of the Empire of Japan and the Ottoman Empire). However, all Asians, Arabs, and Indians not counted as such have been exiled from the GDR, so this section deals with the fate of Slavs. Japanese and Turks enjoy rights roughly on par with Germans, even though racial theories rank them at or below the level of non-German Europeans.

Although slavery is forbidden, their living and working conditions sometimes take on slavery-like conditions, especially in the Western GDR and the colonies, especially since the customary law of the light hand has now been established, which permits the chastisement of Slavs as long as they are not physically harmed. Who is a Slav is usually determined by genetic testing and ancestry. Slavs with undesirable traits such as deformities or hereditary diseases are euthanized or, if their useful traits predominate, merely castrated by chemical means.

Slavs require official permission for many things beyond the basics of life, such as purchasing a car, internet access, moving, marriage, etc. They are usually housed in ghettos, which exist in every German city, or live in shelters on the premises of their workplace. However, in rural areas, especially in the Eastern European provinces, it also happens that Slavs own and cultivate (inherited) land, and enjoy relative freedom.

Slavs of both sexes who do not perform high-priority work must also perform two years of military service, but not in regular units, but in Slav legions. They are barred from study except in the case of high talent, and no special honors are given. Only Slavs who perform outstandingly receive any honors at all. Unlike Germans and Europeans, Slavs are not buried, but cremated and their ashes are processed industrially.

Most Slavs work as simple laborers in physically demanding, dangerous or disgusting jobs, or as servants for wealthy Germans and Europeans. There is rudimentary free health care for Slavs, but it is for the maintenance of their labor, not their well-being. They can buy private insurance if they can afford it, but an insurance company that insures Germans may not insure Slavs. Most Slavs with insurance get it paid for by their employer. Slavic prostitutes are not allowed to attend to Germans. Most crimes committed by Slavs are punished with deportation to the hinterland of the colony of Rusland, punishment camps, temporary classification as T-class personnel2 or execution by classification as T-class. Slavs involved in traffic accidents receive partial blame in almost all cases, especially if they have insurance. Exceptions exist for negligent or unjustified bodily harm or even murder by Germans, although charges are brought not for endangering or terminating human life but for preventing or destroying labor, and such charges must be brought by the injured party's employer. Penalties here, however, are limited to fines payable to injured contractors and public reprimands.

It is known that some Slavs have organized themselves in the Panslav Resistance. Unlike the SCP Foundation, the SKP does not seem to know much about this group.

Negroids

Negroids (This term comes from the GDR's Race Law — Dr. Bauer), i.e. dark-skinned Africans and African-Americans, Aborigines and dark-skinned Asians, are considered animals in the GDR and are systematically persecuted. Within the GDR, they are exhibited in zoos, sometimes as apes, sometimes in a distorted image of the culture from which they were taken. It is not uncommon for them to have their vocal cords sclerosed and to be deprived of hygiene products as well as dental, skin, and hair care products, to further create the impression of animals.

In the African colonies and the colony of North America, "Negroids" are occasionally held as slaves, under circumstances which are partly far more inhuman than e.g. the slavery of the US southern states in the 18th century.

Sexual intercourse with "Negroids" is considered sodomy (as is same-sex sex and sex with animals) and results in Germans being deprived of being German (they are expected to prefer Freitod to spare their family reprisals). They are used as T-Class personnel in rare cases.

Most "Negroids'' outside the vassal states live in the depopulated areas of Africa. Since the GDR officially has no interests there, they can live there relatively freely. It happens, however, that companies that extract mineral resources there, for example, enslave the inhabitants of the surrounding area.

Exterminated

Jews (members of Judaism as well as ethnic groups thought to be ethnic Jews), Sinti and Roma were exterminated.

First, after regaining the upper hand in World War II, the Madagascar Plan was resumed (the expulsion of all Jews to the inhospitable island of Madagascar), and after the conquest of Europe, implementation began. Sinti and Roma, as well as other groups slated for extermination, were transported to Madagascar, and the concentration camps were disbanded and converted into re-education camps. This practice of deportation later expanded to the conquered colonies, and bounties were placed on Jews located in the vassal states while governments were pressured to extradite them.

The GDR levied tribute in the form of titanium, nickel, and other mineral resources. Otherwise, the GDR left the expellees alone. When supplies stopped after proclamations of a Jewish state, Madagascar was made available to the SKP for large-scale weapons and anomaly testing, as a result of which all the inhabitants of Madagascar, as well as large parts of the ecosystem there, were destroyed.

It cannot be assumed that Jews, Sinti or Roma survived. At best, hidden descendants.

Anomalous, intelligent Species

The SKP does not tolerate non-human, rational beings such as fae, Yetis, or swarm intelligences in society and classifies such life forms as animals and paranormalies to be captured, destroyed, and/or researched. However, exceptions exist for certain beings whose appearance conforms to the German ideal; for example, Norse gods are permitted to go about their business unmolested as long as they comply with applicable law. In addition, certain anomalous species are exhibited in zoos similar to Negroids, but in such a way that their anomalous characteristics do not pose a danger if they have not been taken away from the inmates, even.

Immigration

Germans have unrestricted travel, residence and work permits in the GDR, the colonies and the vassal states. However, it is also not uncommon for Japanese, Turks or Argentines to seek work in the GDR or the German colonies, but a rudimentary visa is required for this purpose. Vacation travel is possible without a visa.

There is some immigration of ethnic Germans to the GDR, especially from the colonies of North America and Russia. There, many descendants of German emigrants try to return to Germany to improve their status or even to be recognized as Germans, which does happen. In the latter case, they often return to the colony to claim land.

Europeans or equivalents from vassal states require visas both for vacation travel and for work in a vassal state or colony. Slavs may only travel on behalf of their employer, or take vacation trips with permission from the authorities.

(More on this topic under the topic "Foreign Policy")

Languages

German is the only official language in Großdeutschland and the German colonies. It is also the language of communication and trade in the vassal states and is spoken at least rudimentarily throughout the world.

Provinces and colonies may introduce local languages of Germanic origin, such as English, Dutch and Scandinavian languages, as a second official language. In that case, official documents must always be executed in two languages.

Speaking Yiddish, with the exception of certain terms that have been given negative connotations in pop culture3, is strictly forbidden - the language is considered extinct, and its use outside of academic studies is punishable by detention in a re-education camp.

Speaking most European languages is permitted, as is teaching them in class. It is not uncommon for Germans to learn a non-Germanic language as well. However, they are not official languages in the GDR.

German must always be spoken in the presence of Germans who do not speak the local language.

Although Slavic languages are forbidden and may not be taught outside Slavic faculties, the isolation of the Slavic population has preserved most Slavic languages and the Cyrillic script. The authorities usually ignore Slavic-speaking, partly because speakers are very careful not to be noticed. As a result, a typical accent has been preserved among Slavs, especially in the eastern GDR. In the 1970s, the language laws were changed in such a way that not only the speaking of Slavic languages, but also names of Slavic origin were forbidden, or rather Germanized. Nowak became Neuerski, Smirnov became Stillow, Jovanović became Johanvic, Laskowski became Waldski and so on. The typical name endings of Slavic names were retained as a stigma.

The languages of peoples classified as Negroid or anomalous species, and thus not human, are considered scientific curiosities. There are a few faculties in the world that have dictionaries of such languages, but only a handful where one can actually learn such languages, since in the GDR in general disgrace comes to those, who are known to have mastered such a language.

Religions

Religions are banned and sometimes persecuted in the GDR and the colonies. In sparsely populated areas of the GDR and the colonies, Christian congregations still occur and are generally not persecuted as long as they do not cause trouble. In the large cities and metropolitan areas, however, religiosity is strictly punished. As a result, almost all churches in the territory of the GDR were demolished; only particularly large and significant examples, such as St. Peter's Basilica in Rome, still stand today and serve as museums or storage facilities.

Among Germans, a German cult is widespread, with which the ideal of the perfect German is emulated. This ideal is not concretized; it is primarily about striving for perfection, discipline and respectability. This cult is largely devoid of devotional objects, apart from medals and badges of honor and the widespread motivational and propaganda posters.

The German cult also includes the worship of "heroes'' as well as Hitler himself. One of the goals of the German cult is also to be remembered by posterity through deeds. In addition to monumental buildings such as the Hall of Heroes in Nuremberg or the Mark of the Fallen in Cologne, every town and village has memorials and monuments. Some resemble war memorials as they are not uncommon in our country, others are whole buildings or monuments. When a person is declared a hero, which always happens posthumously, it is customary for his hometown to erect a monument to him. Monuments and memorials are so common that their absence is unusual, even disreputable. It is also common for statues, busts or portraits of Hitler and local heroes to be installed in every public building as well as private residences.

A legal neo-Germanic cult, which involves the worship of Germanic gods and legendary figures, circulates in the Wehrmacht. However, this cult has little in common with the neo-paganist movements in our reality, and refers rather to the distorted romantic image of Germanism propagated by the SS. The followers of this cult tend to wear runic amulets and the like under their uniforms, or as pins on their headgear. The Wehrmacht leadership tolerates this violation of uniform regulations. It is said that part of the general staff adheres to this cult. Apparently, this cult originates from former members of the SS who joined the Wehrmacht after it was disbanded.

Other religions except Roman Catholicism and Islam, which are both state religions, as well as the Shintoism of the Japanese Empire, are, if not outright wiped out, only üracticed by a few people in the depopulated areas of the world, most of them in Australia. Among members of the Pan-Slavic resistance, moreover, Rodism, the worship of ancient Slavic gods, has become prevalent.

Despite this ban on religion, thanks to fantasy and superhero pop culture, Germans are still familiar with the most common symbols, scriptures, and stories of the major religions, including the Ten Commandments, the crucifixion of Jesus, Moses' act of parting the sea, the enlightenment of Buddha, the revelations of Mohammed, and the significance of the city of Mecca.

Human Rights

In addition to human rights violations resulting from racial segregation, numerous other violations take place. There is no independent body that denounces human rights violations.

For Germans, instead of serving a court-imposed sentence, there is the option of choosing Freitod, a form of suicide in which the sentence is annulled and has no consequences for the relatives and status of the convicted person. Only the deprivation of medals and decorations remains as punishment. Europeans do not have this option, they must serve the sentence. Slavs are usually punished particularly severely even for minor offenses.

Torture, forced labor, temporary T-classification and execution by T-classification are common alternatives to fines or imprisonment, especially for Slavs but also for Europeans. Pure prison sentences without torture or forced labor are imposed only on Germans.

Same-sex intercourse, paraphilic intercourse, incest, and sexual intercourse by Germans with "inferior races'' and "Negroids'' are subsumed under the term "sodomy'' and constitute a serious criminal offense. It results for Germans, among other punishments, in the loss of being German, unless they choose Freitod as a way out. Members of other races are usually executed.

Homosexuality and paraphilias are considered mental illnesses and are "cured'' by brutal methods, including medication, paranormalies, and re-education camps.

Men and women do not have equal rights. Unlike in our reality, the Obedience Paragraph4 has never been abolished. Although domestic violence and rape are also serious crimes in the GDR, in a German family the husband can decide on artificial insemination for his wife if she refuses natural attempts at conception. He can also object to an abortion. Women are allowed to serve in the Wehrmacht, but only if they are unmarried and childless. Similarly, women are discriminated against in career choice and pay. The ideal of the German family shows women in the classic role of housewife and mother.

Freedom of the press and freedom of speech are restricted. The press carries out self-censorship out of a justified fear of reprisals. Media that tend to be critical or left-wing in our country report here in a non-judgmental manner at best. The Internet is censored by artificial intelligence in DNS servers and data centers. Authors of critical content are hounded by the GeStaPo. It is not possible to remain completely anonymous. All Internet-enabled devices, at least those manufactured within the GDR and vassal states, are recorded and traceable. Assemblies must be authorized; there is no general freedom of assembly. Likewise, there are no trade unions.

Anyone convicted of a critical opinion is sent to a re-education camp or prosecuted.

People with chronic disabilities and particularly severe hereditary diseases are euthanized or chemically sterilized (Europeans) or castrated ("lower races"), depending on the nature of the disability. In the case of Germans, countermeasures are taken or an abortion is carried out, if necessary, after the obligatory genetic examination of the unborn child.

History

It is not clear why R-3378-DE and our reality are similar in many details. It is assumed that they are so-called mirror universes, universes which were created by the division of a universe in the recent past and whose connection in the past leads to an identical course of many events, because both universes try to align themselves as far as possible. However, it is not known whether this is actually true or coincidence, nor when the division might have occurred. Since the histories strongly resemble each other up to 1944 (it is assumed that the differences are due to manipulation of the history books by the Nazis there), it is assumed that the research on SCP-███-DE and/or SKP-███ brought the division about. While in our reality there was a devastating accident, as a result of which the project was stopped, there was no such accident. It is assumed therefore that SCP-███-DE became undetermined for a moment and the universe divided two parts in which it came to the accident, or not.
— Dr. Bauer

Second World War (1939-1951)

1944: The history has been almost the same in both universes until March 1944. The sources of the SKP evaluate the situation differently, but the facts are the same. Starting from ██.01.1944, the history runs differently due to the successful development of a propulsion concept for vehicles on the basis of the anomalous [REDACTED], which was already produced en masse since the end of March, in order to gradually equip all tanks and airplanes with it. Due to the extreme range and the fact that this engine only required [REDACTED], which was available in large quantities, the Wehrmacht became almost independent of oil (it was still needed for lubrication and plastic production). The lighter weight and greater torque and power also resulted in greater speed and reliability of the vehicles. Although the Allies succeeded in capturing the drive, they were unable to analyze and reproduce it. Toward June 1944, the drives were equipped with a self-destruct mechanism as the Allies increasingly sought to disable the vehicles, leaving the drives intact for their own use.

The SKP was separated from the SS on 04.06.1944 and became an independent institution. On Hitler's orders, the SKP conducted research primarily on anomalous superweapons, leaving conventional weapons technology to civilian armaments factories. The independence from oil and the weight savings due to the anomalous propulsion made many of the super-heavy tanks that never left the development stage in our reality possible, such as the Panzerkampfwagen VIII Maus (which, however, turned out to be a failure there as well), the Landkreuzer P 1000 (which also turned out to be a failure and was used as a mobile Führerbunker after the end of the war), or the successful E-series, which formed the backbone of the tank force until the introduction of the Leopard main battle tank and the rarer Kampfpanzer 70.

After recapturing Italy and regaining air superiority over mainland Europe, German war efforts focused on conquering Russia. After the failure of the landing by Allied troops in Normandy and the sinking of almost all the landing ships, Hitler ordered the invasion and thus the start of the ground war on the British Isles, a step he had actually wanted to avoid because he saw in the English a "brother nation" that he had wanted to force to join without an offensive. The kingdoms of Hungary and Romania remained part of the Axis powers.

After the Allies aided the West Slavic and South Slavic resistance groups, and the Soviet Union stirred up the East Slavic resistance again, there was a Slavic uprising in August, which was put down in October. In the process, Warsaw was razed to the ground and the Slav resistance fighters, who refused to be disarmed, continued their underground activities.

1945: In January 1945, Russia surrendered. While a disarmament of the Red Army and massive ethnic cleansing took place there, England capitulated in May 1945, but not without first granting independence to all colonies to prevent a takeover by Germany. Numerous troops stationed overseas kept resisting in the now independent territories, but in some cases also faced attacks from indigenous peoples who sought to drive them out. In August 1945, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Cologne. In response, Hitler ordered the use of an anomalous weapon of mass destruction by the SKP on the East Coast of the United States. This was not a bomb, but an aerosol sprayed from long-range bombers, poisoning all organic life with which it came in contact and causing death in a slow and incurable process. Effective residues of the aerosol can still be found in the soil and ruins today, which is why the East Coast of the United States was declared a depopulated zone. Hitler then issued an ultimatum to all neutral states to join Germany by the end of October, enter the war on the German side, or be subjugated.

Spain joined the Axis powers shortly thereafter, as it became clear that Germany would win the war, at least in Europe, annexed Portugal, and began securing North Africa on Germany's behalf. Turkey, partly due to infiltration of Turkish authorities by agents directed by Germany, declared war on the remaining Allies and began annexing and conquering the Middle East and Arab states on Germany's behalf. Switzerland became the target of massive air attacks on its defenses after the ultimatum expired and surrendered in December 1945, although the originally planned Operation Tannenbaum, which had taken into account the assistance of Italian forces, was not carried out. Japan, meanwhile, managed to push back U.S. forces with the help of the SKP's anomalous drives and concentrated on recapturing the lost territories in Asia with the help of its ally Thailand. In South America, numerous Spanish-speaking countries, including Argentina and Chile, joined the war on the Axis side, but except for some skirmishes on the Argentine-Brazilian border, they did not participate.

South Africa joined the Axis powers and, with German permission, annexed Namibia, Lesotho, Botswana, and Swaziland, but stayed out of further war action.

1946: After the complete conquest of Europe in January 1946, the war came to a halt and the German Reich began rebuilding and a seminal political restructuring. The Netherlands, parts of Belgium and France, Switzerland, Denmark and large parts of Eastern Europe were incorporated into the German Reich. The other European states initially retained their statehood and sovereignty, but had to accept Germany's terms. Among other things, this meant extensive disarmament, ethnic cleansing, and substantial reparations. The war with the remaining Allies still existed, but they focused primarily on the war with Japan, which continued to recapture territory, while Thailand secured some of the conquered territories. Turkey was still conquering the Arab world, although Spanish military actions in North Africa were halted due to disarmament.

1947: An uprising takes place in France, in the course of which the remnants of the French Army seized a large number of heavy Wehrmacht equipment in a lightning operation, staged a coup and declared France independent. Hitler ordered a "cleansing" of Europe after the bloody suppression of the uprising, in the course of which the SS and GeStaPo, with the help of the SKP, took massive action against insurgents and dissenters. Hitler declared that collateral damage to the non-German population in the search for insurgents was perfectly acceptable and that there would be no prosecution for being too thorough. With this carte blanche, the SS in particular began a massacre that killed an estimated 30 million people in Western and Southern Europe, especially in France and Britain.

At the same time, the Madagascar Plan was resumed and the inmates of the concentration camps scheduled for extermination were transported to Madagascar. The Jews still in hiding were assured in a large-scale propaganda campaign that if they came forward and disembarked, they would not be importuned on Madagascar, while any Jew found in hiding would be executed immediately.

1948: As a consequence of the uprising, France was initially declared a Foreign Section. Italy, which like Hungary and Romania was spared from disarmament, began to annex islands in the Mediterranean. After the annexation of Greece in 1948, there were armed disputes with Turkey over the affiliation of Turkish territories west of the Bosphorus and various Turkish islands that Italy had annexed even though they belonged to Turkey. The matter was settled by Hitler ceding Corsica to Italy and allowing Turkey to occupy North Africa. After the Japanese use of atomic weapons in India, to which many British troops had fled to resist from there, the United States again actively intervened in the war, dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Hitler issued a declaration forbidding the use of atomic weapons without his personal permission and threatened every participant in the war with "absolute extermination by paranormal weapons'' in case of violation (Presumably, he actually wanted to prevent a nuclear escalation here and at the same time secured a monopoly on weapons of mass destruction. — Dr. Bauer). Thereupon the war flared up again and Australia and New Zealand attacked Japanese-occupied Indonesia.

The United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, and other American states, especially non-Spanish-speaking states, made a peace offer to the Axis powers in which the Americas would remain untouched in exchange for withdrawal from non-American territories. The response did not occur for an extended period of time, and to show which side they were on, Argentina and Chile attacked Brazil. Hitler then rejected the offer, sending massive amounts of troops and war materiel to the allied states in South America. The German Reich began to invade New Zealand in the Pacific to take pressure off Japan so that it would be better able to support the planned American offensive.

In the Caribbean, a naval offensive began in which the Kriegsmarine quickly gained the upper hand - the entire fleet was equipped with the anomalous propulsion system and a handful with the first prototypes of fully functional electromagnetic rail guns. The U.S. forces stationed in Cuba came under such fire from the sea that they were forced to surrender, whereupon Cuba was occupied by the German Reich.

1949: Due to the shortage of German military personnel, an intensified effort to expand the Latino corps and recruit young Germans as soldiers began at the beginning of the year. Likewise, a forced recruitment of numerous non-Germans took place to create a new army.

Since it became obvious that the America Offensive would begin with a massive push into Central America from Colombia and the U.S. was unable to support Panama due to the German naval blockade, they surrendered when the first Colombian soldier set foot across the border, as did Costa Rica and Nicaragua. It was not until Honduras that the advancing troops were stopped by a Mexican-backed counteroffensive. German troops were unprepared for combat in Central American climates and dense vegetation, so the offensive was carried by Colombian and Venezuelan troops. The Wehrmacht instead supported the Argentine-Chilean Brazilian offensive. The Allied front was pushed back until U.S. troops joined in Mexico and the German naval artillery could no longer fire all the way inland.

Since Brazil was de facto defeated at this point, German troops were moved back to Central America to restart the offensive, which succeeded. At the same time, Japan began a massive bombardment of California coastal cities from the sea and German troops landed on the Canadian east coast.

1950: While Japanese troops landed in California, German forces in Canada encountered fierce resistance from U.S. troops. Since tactical tricks, such as blitzkrieg tactics, no longer worked due to appropriate U.S. preparatory measures, the German Empire in Mexico relied on mass, speed and firepower rather than tactics. Numerous long-range bombers were moved to Cuba so that they could reach military bases and defense plants throughout the United States from there. However, the U.S. put up even more resistance. The development of wire-guided missiles seemed to halt the advance of German tanks for the time being.

1951: In February 1951, Australia began an attempt to liberate New Zealand, whereupon Hitler instructed the SKP to make an example. The SKP then produced large quantities of SKP-188 (SCP-188-DE) and developed a bomb for effective spreading. It was initially deployed over Brisbane and Melbourne. Australia needed its troops to contain the infection and surrendered two weeks after the outbreak. The sporadic use of SKP-188 against U.S. forces resulted in numerous front-line collapses and forced entire large units to retreat. Likewise, the United States increasingly fell victim to sabotage by supporters of the Klux Klux Klan, the Amerikadeutscher Bund, and frustrated ethnic Germans whose friends and acquaintances had been placed in prison camps by American police for questionable loyalty. The deciding factor, however, came with the large-scale deployment of Aggregat-4 missiles, which, with greatly improved targeting accuracy, destroyed entire military bases and cities over long distances. At the end of June, therefore, the U.S. government signaled its readiness to surrender, and on July 4 the U.S. officially capitulated (The date - Independence Day - was enforced on Goebbels' initiative. The reviling of national symbols of the conquered was a wish of the German leadership, also to break the population. — Dr. Bauer), followed a few days later by Canada and Mexico. Thus all states that could have offered resistance were defeated, World War II officially ended on July 7, 1951.

Greater German Dictatorship (1951-1972)

1950's: After the war, there was initially disagreement over how the Axis powers should divide the world among themselves. Argentina and Chile both demanded control of the South American continent, Japan demanded the United States and a large part of eastern Russia, which was currently occupied by Germany, while Thailand insisted that Japan keep its promises and hand over some of the desired territories, such as Burma and the Malay Peninsula. In Turkey, Ottomanist currents demanded the establishment of an Islamic god-state. In Europe, Germany's allies made numerous demands, especially for independence.

Hitler, on the other hand, initially wanted to pursue the idea of living space in the East and showed no interest in the concerns of countries outside Eastern Europe, which is why he granted many demands. He kept Canada and a large part of the USA, which were mainly inhabited by German and English descendants, i.e., "Germanic descendants," and formed from them the German Federal Colony of North America, the first German colony after the war. However, he had no interest in occupying the colonies in Africa taken over from the conquered colonial powers and left them to their fate or to the other Axis powers.

To Japan he left California, Oregon and Washington, New Mexico and parts of Texas he annexed to Mexico (presumably as further vituperation — Dr. Bauer). Thailand meanwhile accomplished the fulfillment of Japan's promise and received Burma, the Unfederated Malay States, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam, but had to be content with being militarily and economically dependent on Japan. Argentina annexed Brazil and the other South American allies. Colombia annexed Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Honduras, which it had taken with German and Venezuelan help. Germany left Cuba, which, like numerous other Caribbean islands, was annexed by Venezuela. Chile felt disadvantaged and there was considerable tension with Argentina. The remaining Central American states, as well as the African states not occupied by Turkey, initially remained independent.

When Japan showed ambitions to develop its own anomalous armaments, Hitler decreed that the SKP should have a worldwide monopoly on anomalous research and production. The SKP then established branches outside of Großdeutschland to ensure, among other things, that this monopoly was maintained. In the process, the resources of numerous organizations focused on anomalous subjects were taken over by the Sonderkommando, including, for example, Shūshū-In, the Abnormality Institute, the Special Medical Unit of the Imperial Japanese Army, Marshall, Carter & Dark Ltd. and the Mage Academy, which turned itself in. The remnants of the SCP Foundation that had not already fallen into the hands of the SKP during the German campaign of conquest were turned over by the states housing them out of fear of reprisals. Meanwhile, a worldwide reconstruction of the economy and infrastructure began. With the normalization of the situation and the fact that Germany stayed out of many affairs, resistance in Europe remained low. Only in the states attached to Großdeutschland did resentment stir.

During the reconstruction of the American infrastructure, Großdeutschland and Japan appropriated, among other things, U.S. knowledge of computer technology. This was combined with knowledge already available in the Großdeutsche Reich to build and program new and more efficient computer models. At a 1951 conference, the nations of the world agreed to keep computer terms mostly in English, since the invention of entirely new words to describe computer components and terms, many of which had first come into use in America, would be too burdensome and potentially confusing, according to the participants. Synonyms, however, it was noted, are permissible in all languages should they become common in usage.

1952: In order to ensure a better surveillance of the other states as well as of the own population and also because there was a considerable surplus left over from the reparations, efforts were started to use the by now very advanced technology of the V2 rockets to launch the first satellites into orbit with the newly established Reich Space Ministry. The first satellite, named Trabant (in amazing conformity with the name of our first satellite, Sputnik. - Dr. Bauer) was launched just a year later and, with its built-in camera, provided the first picture of the GDR from above, covering the entire territory of the state in Europe, before failing after just 22 hours in space. The construction and launch of the satellite was covered by the media from the beginning and triggered so-called "space fever" among Germans, a desire to go further into space. At a press conference, it was announced that an attempt would be made to send the first man to the moon before the end of the decade.

1953: Inspired by the German breakthrough in space research, Japan, Turkey and Argentina also tried to launch their own rockets into space, but this remained fruitless for the time being due to the lack of technical knowledge and therefore without attention in Großdeutschland. On the other hand, the completion of the Hall of Heroes in Nuremberg, dedicated to the deceased heroes of the Großdeutsche Reich, attracted attention.

1956: When German observers in Madagascar had found that the Jews deported there, contrary to all expectations, had built up a functioning society and even enjoyed growing prosperity through trade with the other inhabitants of Madagascar and South Africa, Großdeutschland thereupon demanded the so-called "tribute of gratitude" (Without going into the exact figures, I would like to state that the tribute was usury. - Dr. Bauer), which was to be provided in the form of various mineral resources from Madagascar and paid quarterly. The Jewish population of Madagascar agreed for lack of sufficient armament and also out of consideration for the indigenous population. This action was not well received by the trading partners of the deportees and resulted in animosity toward Großdeutschland among the population.

In Asia, meanwhile, there was a clash between Thailand and Japan, triggered by an incident between the Japanese emperor and the Thai president, which escalated in the course of the year until Japan finally declared war. Even though Thailand, unlike its adversary, possessed comparatively little anomalous technology, it massively exploited its advantage as a defender in the years that followed, using the vegetation on its territory for devastating guerrilla maneuvers. The other states decided to stay out of the matter.

That same year, moreover, the German Sigmar Stern achieved fame for being the first space traveler to reach outer space and return safely after a twelve-hour flight. Such space flights had previously been tested with dogs and later with chimpanzees, and continued to pursue the goal of reaching the moon.

1957: The first self-learning AI KAI goes online, to be used for organizing the SKP archives. Hitler was invited to the commissioning of the device, but after the display of KAI's capabilities, he forbade the construction of further AIs because of concerns about the destructive potential of the devices if operated incorrectly. Under Himmler, however, the SKP continued to research AIs in secret.

1958: The definitive break between Chile and Argentina takes place. Chile demanded compensation from Großdeutschland and its neighbors for its war efforts. On the advice of his ministers, Hitler refrained from military intervention and decreed that whichever state could hold its own in South America should rule it. Thus began the South American Wars of Unification.

1959: Five astronauts of the Großdeutsche Reich became the first humans to land on the moon, where they raised their country's flag. The entire space flight was accompanied by cameras and, according to viewing figures, was watched on television by ca. 90 million people worldwide. The moon was completely claimed as a territory of the Großdeutsche Reich during the moon walk. The Reich Space Ministry announced its intention to initiate research to eventually establish a colony on the moon. Hitler, however, who had approved the program only because of the display of German superiority and research into satellite and rocket technology, denied research funds for such an undertaking because of a lack of interest in extraplanetary colonies. He did, however, allow the launch of more space probes to explore the solar system and other planets. Other states meanwhile revised their space programs for fear of a confrontation with Großdeutschland and now have space stations as their goal rather than the moon.

1960's: After renewed uprisings in France and a lack of German interest in settling in Eastern Europe, Hitler again focused on Central Europe. Racial laws were simplified, grouping all non-Germanic, non-Slavic Europeans directly below the "German race," in part to create a new working class. Due to age-related personnel changes in the ministries and Hitler's advisory staff, an all-German Europe was now considered the goal. All Foreign Sections and occupied territories were incorporated into the Großdeutschen state. From now on, Großdeutschland was divided into provinces with equal rights, whose borders largely corresponded to the state borders in our reality. Especially in Western and Southeastern Europe, the provincial borders are based on historical national borders, but in some cases the borders are based on the calculation or arbitrariness of the executing officials.

1961: Mussolini dies of a heart attack. He was buried as one of a few non-Germans in the Hall of Heroes in Nuremberg. During the disagreement over Mussolini's succession, the Spanish government asked Hitler for independence; after all, Spain had fought on the German side. When no new government could be formed in Italy and the Italian territories in the Balkans broke away from Italy, Hitler granted Spain's request, annexed the entire Balkans and Greece, and incorporated them into the Großdeutsche reich.

1962: When nationalists took power in South Tyrol after a small civil war and seceded from Italy, Italy was also annexed by the Großdeutsche Reich. Vatican City in Rome requested to remain sovereign. Instead of a response, units of the Waffen SS entered St. Peter's Basilica in broad daylight, kidnapped Pope Johannes XXIII, and locked him up in the local prison. Johannes XXIII was taken to Berlin that same week and publicly beheaded during a worldwide broadcast, while Joseph Goebbels proclaimed the dissolution of the Catholic Church. The Vatican's properties thereby passed in their entirety to the Großdeutsche Reich, while all other religious institutions in the Großdeutsche Reich were gradually dismantled or abolished.

Spain asked for permission to occupy North Africa, which was actually granted to Turkey, but the latter had never used this right. Hitler therefore also allowed Spain to establish colonies in North Africa. Turkey had to renounce its claims due to internal disputes.

1964: Spain was annexed by Großdeutschland along with Portugal without warning or obvious trigger. Thus, the Großdeutsche Reich encompassed all of Europe and Berlin was renamed Germania in the course of the victory celebration. The economic situation had returned to normal and there were increasing calls for the reconquest of German colonies, also for economic reasons. Hitler therefore allowed the colonization of Africa under the auspices of the Kriegsmarine, but showed no real interest in it and left the matter to the Navy. South Africa received a promise that it could remain independent and keep its mandated territory of Namibia.

At the end of the year, Japan annexed Russia east of the Urals without having agreed this with Großdeutschland. Hitler then demanded the surrender and complete withdrawal of Japanese troops from Russia. Japan reluctantly complied with the demand after drastic threats, and the matter was presented as a misunderstanding. Russia and Kazakhstan were now German occupied and declared the German colony of Rusland (Rusland with a single s, corresponding to the East Germanic people of Rus — Dr. Bauer). The remaining Central Asian countries were then given to Turkey. In reaction to this and to the racial laws of the 1960s, the last remaining Slavic resistance fighters held a congress in Volgograd, where all the remaining resistance movements merged into one.

1965: The South American Wars of Unification come to an end, from which Argentina emerged victorious. It incorporated Spanish-speaking areas of South America into the state of Argentina and combined the non-Spanish-speaking states of South America into the Argentine colony of Southeast America. The Central American states annexed by Colombia were combined into the Argentine Colony of Central America. After the war, the Argentine army and economy were so weakened that Mexico and the other Central American states north of Honduras remained independent. Mexico asked Hitler to recognize it as a vassal state to protect itself from later aggression by Argentina, which the latter accepted.

After he was elected president of Turkey after his term as prime minister and his party held the majority in parliament, the Turkish constitution was changed to make the president a de facto dictator. He gained great popularity with clever propaganda actions, such as a faked coup, and the possibility to eliminate political opponents without diminishing his prestige. Under the dictatorship, Turkey managed to incorporate the occupied territories into its national territory, following the German model.

In the same year, Joseph Goebbels died in a car accident in Paris when his car was hit by a truck. The driver of the truck, who had fallen asleep at the wheel, was later found guilty and executed.

1966: The first Scranton reality anchor is successfully recreated from the template of the devices in SCP-2000 of that universe.

Later that year, construction is completed on the Volkshalle in Germania, the largest building ever constructed and intended to serve as a government building; over the next several years, all ministries are moved into the structure. Hitler inaugurated the building in person and gave a speech under the dome, his face having to be transmitted via large screens, as otherwise he would hardly have been seen from a distance.

Turkey, meanwhile, is renamed back to "Ottoman Empire'' and Sharia law is reintroduced. The form of government was also changed back to that of the monarchy and the president was elected Sultan in a rigged referendum. The reestablished Ottoman Empire regained the rights to North Africa.

1967: The Reich Ministry for the Occupied Eastern Territories was expanded to become the Reich Colonial Ministry, as the navy, companies and settlers had meanwhile been able to gain some colonies in West Africa, but they lacked structure. The Reich Colonial Ministry began planning the systematic development of the colonies and drafted colonial laws derived from the Reich laws. In addition, the Internet was formally introduced in the Großdeutsche Reich after computers could finally be produced in such a form that they were affordable for ordinary citizens and actually small enough to be set up at home. Interest in the new invention is initially limited. Much more interest is being shown in the "Ratatöskr" space probe, which lands as the first man-made object on Mars at the end of the year.

1970: Heinrich Himmler died in an assassination attempt from poisoned wine. The GeStaPo later identified the Polish-born delivery boy who had supplied the wine, who was publicly executed. (Albeit, internal SKP documents suggest that the real culprit was not caught. There was apparently strong circumstantial evidence that the newly organized Pan-Slavic Resistance had been involved in the assassination. - Dr. Bauer)

Greater German Oligiarchy (since 1972)

1972: During the New Year's speech, Adolf Hitler suffered a severe stroke that subjected him to spasms and babbled unintelligibly during a live broadcast to the entire world before he finally fell over, ripping the microphone from the lectern. Emergency doctors arrived too late to save or resuscitate Hitler and the SKP was ordered to carry out the first worldwide amnestics protocol to make the world forget this extremely embarrassing incident for Großdeutschland. The protocol was a success and the population was implanted with the memory that Hitler had finished the speech to great applause before lying down, complaining of sudden exhaustion, and had not woken up. Recordings of the speech were fabricated and those that held the actual event were confiscated and destroyed. Reports of such videos subsequently became urban legends, which were subject to censorship (We know about this incident only through internal documents that we retrieved from the SKP database. It is not recorded anywhere in public media. - Dr. Bauer). Hitler received a grand state funeral and was buried in the center of the Hall of Heroes in Nuremberg.

Since Hitler had not named a successor before his death, scuffles broke out among SS leaders and the cabinet for the post of Führer, leaving the Großdeutsche Reich without a head of state for a month. The leadership of the Wehrmacht intervened at the beginning of February and demanded that a successor finally be appointed and threatened to use force of arms because of the long time that the Großdeutsche Reich had been without a leader. The SS leadership took this as an affront and, together with the GeStaPo, attempted a coup against the Wehrmacht and the SKP. However, the forces of the Wehrmacht had been prepared for such a move and marched into the barracks of the Waffen-SS. The Wehrmacht, together with the SKP, quickly gained the upper hand thanks to its numerical and also equipment superiority. All in all, the conflict lasted about seven days and therefore went down in history as the "One Week War." As a result, the SS was defeated and disbanded by the Wehrmacht, and the GeStaPo got away with replacing its leaders. The Wehrmacht took over all the possessions of the SS, as well as the rule over the Großdeutsche Reich, which it later handed over to an appointed Council of Ministers. The post of the Führer remained vacant for reasons of Hitler's hero worship.

The SKP had previously provided materials and expertise for the military industry, police, building construction, computer technology, and space travel, but now expanded its scope of authority to include all aspects of public life. Knowledge of anomalies previously considered unnecessary came to be used in food production, the automobile industry, art, medicine, and many other fields, giving the technology of the Großdeutsche Reich a tremendous boost and resulting, among other things, in the first space station, Sondereinrichtung-11. Throughout the 1970s, racial laws continued to be adjusted until they were in the current form by the early 1980s. Projects previously abandoned by Hitler, such as colonization of the moon and exploration of the deep sea, were resumed. The German population was initially skeptical of the change in power, but with the exception of disadvantaged groups, public opinion later changed for the better. The SKP was seen as an improvement over the previous government.

The other states cautiously approached the German Council of Ministers, but existing treaties and arrangements were maintained. Japan was able to negotiate an additional agreement to supply new anomalous weapons, which it planned to use in the fight against Thailand.

1973: A Jewish state is proclaimed on Madagascar and deliveries of tribute are stopped. Großdeutschland reacts immediately and declares Madagascar as a testing ground for new anomalous weapons and the effects of anomalies in general.

1974: The Argentine president dies of a heart attack and is replaced by his wife. However, she does not perform any government duties and is used as a puppet by one of the governing parties.

1975: A new head of state came to power in South Africa, which condemned the treatment of Jews in Madagascar. South Africa forbade all German vessels to sail its waters and access Madagascar. The Großdeutsche Reich then declared war and sent warships and landing craft to South Africa. For the first time, Marder and Leopard 2 tanks, as well as Lippisch type flying wing aircraft (These aircraft look similar to B2 Spirit long-range bombers and were also used in the same capacity. - Dr. Bauer) were used in war operations. The less well-equipped South Africa countered with guerrilla tactics, primarily targeting the water supplies of the German forces to gain an advantage in the arid savannahs.

In the same year, the war between Japan and Thailand ends with a clear victory for the Empire thanks to the newly deployed weapons of the Großdeutsche Reich, as Thailand had little to oppose the new equipment of the Japanese forces despite successful attacks, Thailand was completely annexed and made another colony of Japan. The Empire of Japan then redeemed its part of the new agreement with the Großdeutsche Reich and gave it 500,000 people of both sexes between the ages of 3 and 65 for use as Class T personnel, who were distributed among all the SKP special agencies in the world.

1976: The Argentine president, for lack of ability to be taken seriously as a woman by the German Council of Ministers, is replaced in a military coup by a dictator who, however, continues to call himself president. Later that year, the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire dies of old age, sparking a struggle for succession among his siblings and descendants. The Ottoman military, which had been following developments in the Großdeutsche Reich after Hitler's death, increased its presence in the country as a precautionary measure to quell unrest.

1977: The Ottomans receive a new monarch, whose power, however, is very unconsolidated due to tensions within the royal family. Unrest, however, remained absent due to the efforts of the military.

Meanwhile, in the Großdeutschen Reich, the security AI KIRA is introduced. Since the public had never heard of KAI, the announcement does not receive much attention until about a week later, when KIRA is able to track down the first criminals and have them arrested by the SKP and GeStaPo. KIRA continues to be updated and supplied with new hardware in the years that follow, making it the SKP's most powerful AI in the present.

1978: Australia joined the South African War and simultaneously attacked New Zealand in a liberation strike, where it seized SKP equipment and numerous anomalies. The SKP responded by dropping SKP-188 over Sydney again, this time without much consequence due to the Australians' experience with the bioweapon. The Großdeutsche Reich later sent forces to New Zealand and Australia to repel the attack.

1979: The Argentine president, whose troops have been massively persecuting opposition members over the last few years and, for several weeks, some Germans as well, suddenly explodes during a speech without any cause. Großdeutschland denies any involvement in the incident, but demands the release of all captured Germans and an end to their persecution. The Argentine leadership complies with the request, whereupon many Germans and ethnic Germans living in Argentina emigrate to the Großdeutsche Reich. The new president of Argentina continues with the state terror of his predecessor, although his troops are instructed to leave Germans, Ottomans and Japanese in peace under all circumstances.

1980's: The SKP began to issue the first licenses for handling and researching anomalies, among the first recipients being Richter & Thiel Industriegesellschaft mbH and the Institut für Menschliche Bildung und Weiterentwicklung. The GeStaPo, however, is not issued such a license because of its role in the One Week War, nor are any businesses or institutions of the vassal states. This ensured that the latter became economically dependent on the Großdeutsche Reich in an attempt to raise their level of technologization and standard of living.

Australia is also designated as a testing ground for anomalies and anomalous weapons due to continued opposition, while South Africa is supported by several other African countries that enter the war out of fear of German colonization. Since these are almost all "Negroid" peoples, the Großdeutsche Reich begins a war of extermination against the newcomer states in Central Africa, with guerrilla tactics failing for lack of restraint regarding collateral damage. Entire forests are sometimes simply razed to the ground by area bombing.

The Ottoman Empire, meanwhile, experiences an ongoing power struggle during this decade, with a new sultan being elected on various occasions, sometimes even several times a year. Government business often goes unattended, and the country begins to lose touch with the world culturally and technologically.

1981: The official sale of the first cell phone begins, after the manufacturer of the device had already invested in the installation of various transmission towers in the cities. Thanks to a sophisticated advertising campaign, so many devices are sold that the manufacturer can barely keep up with production. (I suspect the inventor has learned from the lackluster response to the Internet, even though it is now gaining momentum. - Dr. Bauer)

1983: Evidence comes to light that convicts Mexico of supporting the war opponents of the Großdeutsche Reich. The German Council of Ministers then revokes Mexico's status as a vassal state and gives Argentina the expressed permission to conquer. Argentina mobilizes its troops, while the Großdeutsche Reich announces that it will stay out of the conflict.

1984: RTI introduces the world's first power armor, intended primarily for urban warfare and forested areas. The SKP welcomes this development and enters into a purchase agreement with the company. The power armors are later successfully used against Australian forces in New Zealand and succeed in driving them off the island. Argentina, meanwhile, begins its war against Mexico, relying on the raw power of its forces to destroy Mexican cities and bastions from afar if they do not surrender first.

1985: The first SKP moon base is completed. The building was a pure research facility built with the help of various anomalies and was intended to pioneer building and colonizing alien planets.

1986: The Plate Crusher Incident occurs in Australia on April 26. An earthquake generator developed by SKP was to be tested in the Simpson Desert and had targeted surrounding settlements. However, the power of the device, which had been transported in by air, had been vastly underestimated and even a low level resulted in the Australian plate being broken up and promptly compressed by all the adjacent tectonic plates, causing tsunamis and earthquakes in the Empire of Japan and its colonies. Australia itself was the victim of spontaneous volcanism and other natural geological disasters. Only southern Victoria, Western Australia and Tasmania were spared. The earthquake generator was destroyed in the process, and Australia has been the victim of geological disasters almost weekly since this incident. The continent was almost completely depopulated and the nation's refugees were forced to surrender, whereupon they were subjected to ethnic cleansing by German forces and the survivors deported to New Zealand. English-born Australians were given the status of Germans and given a choice of where to settle, while other survivors were dispersed across the colonies as Europeans. The incident was sold to the media as calculated and even welcome action, but the use of earthquake generators on German soil was forbidden under threat of immediate termination on site. The Emperor of Japan waived reparation claims despite the damage done to the empire. (Presumably out of fear of being the next target. - Dr. Bauer).

1987: The first German is commercially bestowed by the Institut für Menschliche Weiterbildung und Entwicklung with an anomalous ability that allows him to fly. In an interview, Professor Alexander Voss expresses satisfaction with the result, but admits he is still only beginning to tap into the science. However, he promises to make enough progress in the next twelve years to give Germans reality-bending powers.

1988: The Internet fell victim to the largest cyberattack in history. The attack was triggered by the computer worm "Svoboda", which acted as a fork bomb and crashed all computers it was running on through a growing number of versions of itself. The SKP was able to contain the worm with an antivirus program, however by this time Svoboda had already caused 250 million Reichsmark worth of damage. Investigations eventually led to the source, located in Volgograd, but neither a computer nor a perpetrator could be found on site. Further investigations eventually led to the person of Eugen Ziegenski, who was caught and executed three years later after a manhunt.

1989: The Japanese emperor dies on January 7. His eldest son inherits the throne and takes over the reins of government at a ceremony attended by German ministers of state and the leaders of all vassal states. Just a month later, Argentina conquers Mexico City, forcing Mexico to surrender. German forces, meanwhile, have depopulated large parts of the South African continent and are taking South Africa into a pincer maneuver with bombing raids. The defenders' guerrilla tactics begin to fail in the face of newly deployed power armors, while Madagascar is almost completely destroyed by anomalous phenomena. The war ends on November 9 with the surrender of South Africa after Pretoria is destroyed by the use of the kinetic satellite weapon "Mjölnir".

1990's: The South African War resulted in the current world order. South Africa as a state was abolished, ethnically cleansed and incorporated into the Großdeutsche Reich as a colony. Germans, who were after the mineral resources in southern Africa, used the colony as a starting point to work their way north. The depopulated areas were not particularly popular, as there was no indigenous population to enslave as free labor. Madagascar was scoured after the war and surviving Jews and other undesirable populations or those considered lesser were killed when found. In the mid-90s, the Jewish, Sinti and Roma people were declared exterminated, which was officially acknowledged with great enthusiasm among the Germans.

Other states, after displaying the destructive power of Mjölnir, tried a cooperative course with the Großdeutsche Reich. The vassal states fell even deeper into economic dependence on the Großdeutsche Reich, Argentina because of the reconstruction of Mexico, the Japanese Empire because of the cleanup of the destruction of the Plate Crusher Incident, and the Ottoman Empire because of falling behind in the technological and academic fields compared to the other states (My guess is that, besides the struggle for the office of Sultan, this is due to the introduction of Islam as the state religion. The Ottoman leadership put a noticeable part of its resources into building and decorating mosques and training imams, which were then lacking elsewhere. - Dr. Bauer). Argentina in particular is forced by this dependency, albeit with the consent of its citizens, to clear large areas of the Amazon rainforest to produce timber and arable land. German colonists are proceeding similarly in Africa.

1990: The city of Canberra in Australia becomes mobile and establishes itself as a sanctuary city for persecuted people of all kinds. For the time being, the Wehrmacht and the SKP are unable to destroy the city due to the highly anomalous nature of the vehicle.

1991: The IMBW, in cooperation with RTI mbH, is launching the first cybernetic brain implant for Germans. The implant is about 10 millimeters in size and serves to accelerate thought processes and improve memory. After little initial attention, gradually more and more buyers are found among Germans. Research in the field of implants and prostheses is intensified by both business partners.

1992: On the first of April, the SKP World Paris opens. It is a leisure and museum park aimed at bringing the work of the SKP closer to the population and is the first of its kind. In addition to various attractions such as a roller coaster and a chamber of horrors, fully occupied by replicas of the anomalies contained by the SKP, the park also contains a museum and a zoo where various anomalous species are exhibited.

1995: The expansion of the SKP moon base is completed. The base now contains a shipyard where the first star cruisers of the Großdeutsche Reich will be built.

1996: The first rechentelefon (The R-3378-DE term for the smartphone, RT for short - Dr. Bauer) is launched on the market, together with the first tablett5. (Same game for the tablet- Dr. Bauer). While older people largely ignore the technology, the younger generations show great interest. On July 5 of the same year, the first genetically augmented German child is also born. It is the first in a series of experiments by the IMBW involving around one hundred mothers, having already achieved excellent results with the children of Slavs.

1998: The Argentine president resigns and is replaced by the vice president.

1999: The first manned Mars mission from Großdeutschland landed on Mars. Similar to the moon landing, the spectacle was watched by 150 million viewers worldwide, according to official figures.

2000's: The turn of the millennium brought a reordering of the SKP's priorities. The focus was now on expanding surveillance, in part to combat the strengthening Pan-Slavic Resistance, and securing Earth against extraterrestrial elements, such as the Church of the Second Hythoth, which the organization knew about thanks to the anomalies it had contained.

Furthermore, to consolidate German intellectual superiority, the use of a brain implant becomes mandatory for Germans from the age of 20. Meanwhile, the SKP, together with the IMBW and the RTI mbH, is involved in research, also to create implants that can be used to remotely control and monitor the patient, for example in the case of infiltration missions or prison sentences. The vassal states express interest in the augmenting technology, but can only acquire it in individual cases for large sums of money.

2001: There is a terrorist attack on September 11, when an airplane that was supposed to land at Berlin-Brandenburg Airport was suddenly hijacked and redirected in such a way that it collided with the dome of the Volkshalle, the current government building of the Großdeutsche Reich. The dome took comparatively little damage due to the anomalous construction materials used, however, none of the occupants of the plane, mostly Germans and some Slavic servants, survived. Later, the Pan-Slavic Resistance was identified as responsible for the attack, gaining widespread attention for the first time. The Council of Ministers reacted promptly, had anti-aircraft guns installed in all major cities of Großdeutschland, and declared a "war on terror."

2002: A large-scale raid under the command of the GeStaPo in Eastern Europe and the colony of Rusland begins, which goes down in history as "The Twelve Year Raid", as the GeStaPo later has to call in the Wehrmacht to arrest the members of the Pan-Slavic Resistance who put up a fierce fight.

2003: The first base is established on Mars. The goal is to fortify the planet against extraterrestrial threats, a move that is accknowldged by the vassal states with a shake of the head.

2006: The SKP becomes involved in actions in Eastern Europe and the colony of Rusland, as members of the Pan-Slavic Resistance increasingly use anomalous phenomena to fight back or to manipulate the forces of the Großdeutsche Reich. Other resistance movements join in other colonies, such as surviving natives in the African colonies and isolated rebels in the Rocky Mountains and Andes in the North American colony. The vassal states must also increasingly defend themselves against resistance fighters, Japan against rebels on the American East Coast, India and China, the Ottoman Empire in North Africa and Arabia, and Argentina in Mexico, Chile and Peru.

2007: The Institute for Menschliche Bildung und Weiterentwicklung begins to offer genetic enhancements for Germans who have already been born. The offer finds many interested customers, since the institute, in addition to changing the genetic makeup, changes the patient's phenotype, which many use as shortcut for fitness training, even though the physical changes sometimes go beyond the patient's wishes and unfortunately are not reversible without risk.

2010's: During this period, the paranoia of the leadership of the Großdeutsche Reich against attacks from within and without solidified thanks to the efforts of the resistance fighters. Ever better, more destructive and intimidating methods and weapons were demanded from the SKP and armaments companies to destroy the opponents of Großdeutschland.

Furthermore, the obligation for German married couples to have their children genetically tested and augmented before birth is introduced. The same applies to the already born Germans themselves after the success of the genetic manipulation technology of the IMBW. Many see this as an manipulation on life itself, but are unable to protest due to the ban on gatherings; the Germans themselves also remain conspicuously quiet as they are reimbursed for the encroachment and lured with benefits. For example, it is made possible for genetically modified Germans to go on without an implant if they can demonstrate an appropriate intellect.

2012: The incumbent Ottoman Sultan dies and is replaced by a successor who tries to advance the Ottoman Empire technologically. To this end, several treaties are signed with the Großdeutsche Reich to bring goods, machinery and trainers to the Ottoman Empire to prepare its population for the technological leap.

2014: The last hostile elements are defeated by the Wehrmacht on the Crimean peninsula. The Pan-Slavic resistance is considered repulsed, although it is clear to everyone in the Großdeutsche Reich that the organization still exists, since none of the leaders could be captured and other resistance movements also escaped disbandment. However, the ministers of Großdeutschland have other priorities for the time being and give in to the requests of the vassal states to help them fight their anomalously equipped rebels, using the latest and most destructive technology from the SKP to make a military impression on the vassal states. All in all, almost all known resistance movements in the world are wiped out.

2018: Apparently, a phenomenon took place on April 15 that made the whole Population of Earth forget the last three weeks. The SKP was unable to recover the lost information, as apparently written and electronic data were also affected by the effect. The Greater German leadership eventually blamed the Pan-Slavic resistance for the incident, which German troops "supposedly" could mitigate before something much more horrific happened, but had to admit that they could do nothing about the aftermath. This news was interpreted by resistance groups around the world as a weakening of the Großdeutsche Reich, whereupon terrorist attacks and assaults on German targets intensified.

2019: The first star cruiser Bismarck is completed on the moon and sent to the asteroid belt to test its weapons and engines for fire practice. Numerous asteroids are destroyed during the tests, though two are discovered that offer noticeable resistance to the ship's weapons, even after sustained fire. Pieces of debris are collected and taken to the moon for analysis. The media only receive footage of the destroyed asteroids and celebrate the Bismarck as a technological marvel.

2020's: In the twenties of the new millennium, the surveillance apparatus of the Großdeutsche Reich was further expanded and could now capture every aspect of the lives of the inhabitants of the colonies and in Großdeutschland itself. However, there were numerous people in Eastern Europe and the colony of Rusland who sabotaged the surveillance, such as by stealing and destroying surveillance cameras or building their own routers to access the Internet. The Greater German government did not attach much importance to this, since the Slavs had only recently been "pacified" again.

On the Moon and on Earth itself, the beginning of the decade sees the installation of the first ultra long-range weapons capable of hitting and destroying targets on other planets. Also completed in this decade is the construction of the "Sonnengewehr" a one-kilometer-diameter adjustable sodium lens that can focus sunlight and direct it with destructive effect on a target on Earth. Mars, meanwhile, continues to be colonized. It is envisioned as another bastion of the Großdeutsche Reich, but weapons systems like those on the Moon are not yet available by the end of the decade.

Meanwhile, first regions of the world, including parts of the Großdeutsche Reich, experience the effects of the greenhouse effect, which is intensified by industrial operations worldwide, but also by the ongoing volcanism in Australia. Such developments had already been predicted in the seventies, but the Reich Ministry for the Environment did not attach any importance to these theses at that time due to a lack of influence. Now, however, huge protest movements arise among younger generations around the world and a move away from greenhouse emissions and destructive weapons testing, which had already completely wiped out unique animal species such as the koala and platypus in the wild. Due to the sheer mass of protests, in which many Germans participated also, forces of order were unable to break up all gatherings by force, and in numerous cases did not even attempt to do so. Under the confrontation with existing scientific facts, the "Program for the Preservation of the Habitat" was finally created, which also aimed to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases and toxins in the air by using anomalies. The vassal states were forced to participate under the threat of economic sanctions, and projects were set in motion such as the greening of deserts and the reforestation of rainforests. However, the Wehrmacht and the SKP did not back down from their weapons tests.

Politics

The Großdeutsche Reich pursues a strategy of superiority in every conceivable direction over other states that borders on obsession. In this way, it gives itself the impetus, so to speak, to keep surpassing what has gone before, even when there is no threat that makes this necessary, and thus prevents stagnation. At the same time, the other states are weakened by deliberately brought about dependencies on Großdeutschland, thus discouraging resistance.

Political System

The Großdeutsche Reich is led by a Council of Ministers, theoretically headed by the Führer, but the position has never been filled since Hitler's death. The ministers are all heads of independent agencies, each responsible for only one subject area, such as research, infrastructure, and economics. The NSdAP still exists, but it has little political significance, as most ministers appoint their own successors or are elected by the ministry themselves in the event of their unexpected death or departure. Directly subordinate to the Council of Ministers are the governors of the colonies, who in turn preside over smaller councils of ministers that administer the respective colony.

The Großdeutsche Reich has the following ministries, all of which are housed in the Volkshalle:

Reich Ministry of Labour: Responsible for regulating labor rights and social policies, is authorized to force work refusers to work, using police force if necessary.

Reich Finance Ministry: Supreme instance of Reich Financial Administration, responsible for raising funds via taxes and tributes, as well as managing them. Is also charged with keeping the Reichsmark stable and is the only institution in the world authorized to print new Reichsmark bills and mint coins. To keep the value of the currency stable, the Ministry sets the price of gold to which the Reichsmark is tied.

Reich Ministry of Justice: Responsible for the administration of the courts and the administration of justice. The wing of the Volkshalle in which this Ministry is housed also houses the supreme court of the Großdeutsche Reich, the Reich Court.

Reich Colonial Ministry: Formerly known as the Ministry for the Occupied Eastern Territories, but was renamed in 1967. Responsible for the administration of colonial territories and colonial laws, as well as settlement policy within the colonies.

Reich Ministry of War: The largest of all ministries, responsible for administering and supplying the military with all necessary goods and personnel. Also tasked with the quality control of weapons and other equipment for the military and police, as well as that of the emergency services. The Reich Minister of War is also the commander-in-chief of all armed forces in the absence of a Führer and is traditionally provided by the Wehrmacht and the Waffen-SKP. In 1945, the Reich Ministry of Armaments and War Production was integrated into the Reich Ministry of War and renamed the Office of Armaments Procurement because Hitler had been dissatisfied with the institution's performance. In 1972, moreover, the Luftwaffe, formerly under the command of the Minister of the Reich Ministry of Aviation, was placed under the Reich Ministry of War.

Reich Foreign Ministry: Also known as the "Foreign Office," responsible for foreign policy. Is known among the vassal states for consistently issuing covert threats, in addition to diplomacy, when the Großdeutsche Reich demands something from the satellite states.

Reich Ministry of the Interior: Formerly Reich and Prussian Ministry of the Interior, but renamed in 1945 for simplification. Responsible for internal security, has command over the entire police apparatus. For the purpose of better crime-fighting and ensuring lawful marriages, it also maintains a biometric database in which every inhabitant of the Großdeutsche Reich is recorded at birth or entry.

Reich Minitry of Food and Agriculture: Responsible for ensuring food supplies and forestry. While existing forests on the European continent were largely left alone, by 2020 the ministry was pushing heavy logging, such as that of rainforests in South Africa, to provide timber and generate arable land. These practices have since been sharply scaled back, and the institution is now also looking at reforestation.

Reich Ministry for Church Affairs: Also known as Reich Ministry for Ecclesiastical Affairs. The smallest of all ministries, responsible for the suppression of religion. Nowadays, the ministry is only comparatively lightly staffed, since the Reich Ministry for Popular Enlightenment and Propaganda already handles a large part of its tasks as well. Therefore, the expression "He will be transferred to the Reich Ministry of Ecclesiastical Affairs " exists among the officials of other authorities, which, however, in most cases means that the corresponding employee will be dismissed shortly.

Reich Ministery of Postal Services and Telecommunication: Until 1945 Reich Postal Ministry, responsible for the administration of message traffic and digital infrastructure.

Reich Ministry of Environement: The youngest agency, it was established in 1972 during the reforms and oversees the preservation of a "humane environment" and species protection, although its concerns were usually given lower priority than those of other ministries. However, during the climate protests of the 2020s, the ministry gained significant influence and importance, and can now assert itself against other agencies with the right tools.

Reich Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda: Responsible for the control and censorship of the press, media and arts. Also administers the Index of Forbidden Media, which includes the Bible, the Koran, and various mangas that portray Jews in a positive light.

Reich Ministry of Science, Education and Culture: Responsible for research, education and indoctrination of the population. Technically, the civilian arm of the SKP is under this ministry, though it has never used its command authority in this regard.

Reich Space Ministry: Responsible for the organization of space travel and, in conjunction with the Ministry of Reich Ministry of Science, Education and Culture, for space research. There is still a dispute as to whether the Reich Space Ministry or the Reich Colonial Ministry is responsible for the extraplanetary colonies. Currently, the Reich Colonial Ministry has jurisdiction.

Reich Ministry of Transport: Responsible for transportation planning and physical infrastructure management. Is also responsible for the deportation of undesirable individuals. In 1972, the civilian part of German aviation was turned over to the Ministry, which had previously been administered by the Reich Aviation Ministry.

Reich Ministry of Economics: Responsible for the administration of state-owned enterprises, licenses and patents, promotion and repression of enterprises, and setting prices for products and raw materials.

State Territory

The Greater German territory encompasses almost all of Europe, plus colonies which include the former Russia, South Africa, parts of West Africa, Madagascar, New Zealand, the former Canada and the former USA. The USA, however, not completely, since the east coast was claimed by the Japanese Empire.

Furthermore, it claims the moon and Mars completely since the German space mission successfully landed on the celestial bodies and defends them against any intruders with deadly force.

Lastly, the SKP also claims all of Earth's nexuses due to their anomalous nature.

Flag and Coat of Arms

Since 1943, the Großdeutsche Reich has used the swastika flag and the reichsadler as heraldry, which have been only minimally changed in style since their introduction. In addition, there are some rune-derived symbols that can be found mainly on military uniforms.

After the proclamation of the Großdeutsche Reich, moreover, city coats of arms that featured such things as Moorish heads or Christian symbolism were altered and now display Nazi symbols instead.

Another symbol of German supremacy was the use of Fraktur for headlines and titles. Fraktur as an official typeface was abolished in 1941, but it has survived as a symbol of loyalty to the state. Its use is not mandatory, but it is considered an elevated style.

Foreign Affairs

The Großdeutsche Reich is the only remaining superpower on the planet and holds the other countries as satellite states in military, technological and economic dependence to itself. This allows it to dictate laws and state actions with the threat of sanctions or war, such as prohibiting the vassal states from researching anomalies and tolerating the presence and ventures of the SKP on their territory, which has built numerous special facilities there over the years. The countries are otherwise left alone for the most part, however, even though there have been increased harsh environmental protection requirements imposed by the Großdeutsche Reich in the recent past.

The Germans in particular consider themselves and their culture superior to those of the vassal states, though this does not prevent them from traveling to said countries or consuming their cultural goods. In general, the ruling peoples of these countries are classified on a level between Europeans and "lesser races."

All inhabitants of the Großdeutsche Reich are allowed to travel, but only Germans and Europeans are allowed to emigrate, with Germans being permanently deprived of the status of being German, should they adopt another citizenship. Slavs and other ethnic groups of their status are forbidden to emigrate in order not to lose labor. Those who attempt to flee or are apprehended abroad are usually killed immediately, whether man, woman or child.

Immigration from the vassal states is also possible, but potential entrants must have outstanding certificates of achievement and funds of at least 20,000 Reichsmarks to be allowed to settle. Likewise, they must not have a criminal record or be suspected of belonging to a criminal or rebellious organization and must not possess any contagious or hereditary diseases.

Colonial Politics

The German colonies have no sovereignty and are directly dependent on the Großdeutsche Reich. The same laws and rules apply to the populations as on the European continent, but a great deal of land is claimed by individual Germans who have set up and run businesses there or extract resources. Each colony has its own divisions of the Wehrmacht and intelligence services on site, which nip any signs of resistance and rebellion in the bud.

Military

The military of the Großdeutsche Reich, which is composed of the Wehrmacht and the waffen-SKP that exists alongside it, is the pride of the Reich and is funded with a noticeable portion of the state budget; moreover, it is the only armed force on the planet with access to anomalous weapons of mass destruction. The Wehrmacht is divided into the Heer, the Luftwaffe, the Kriegsmarine and, since the completion of the first Star Cruiser, the Weltraummarine, which also commands orbiting satellite weapons.

The mission of the military is to defend the Großdeutsche Reich against external and internal aggressors, to protect the population in the event of disasters, and to indoctrinate the population according to the designs of the government. The supreme commander of the military is the Führer, but since his position is currently vacant, the Reich Minister of War embodies the supreme authority. Traditionally, he is provided by the ranks of the Wehrmacht and the Waffen-SKP.

The military builds many of the weapons and support equipment it uses itself, though it also employs numerous defense contractors and private companies to increase its combat power. Weapon tests are constantly being conducted in depopulated areas of the globe, to the misfurtune of any inhabitants who may be present there. At the moment, the Wehrmacht and the Waffen-SKP employ about 180 million people, 110 million of whom are soldiers.

Police and Intelligence Services

The police forces of the Großdeutsche Reich are grouped under the term Ordnungspolizei, which is divided into uniformed police and security police, which combines the Geheime Staatspolizei (GeStaPo) and Kriminalpolizei (KriPo) in itself. At the moment, the Großdeutsche Reich employs about 9 million police officers. All police forces are directed by the Ministry of the Interior.

The Großdeutsche Reich runs several intelligence services, which are differentiated according to their field of activity. The military intelligence service is called Amt Ausland/Abwehr and is entrusted with spying on and, if necessary, sabotaging the military apparatuses of the vassal states and paramilitary organizations. Other intelligence services include the Geheime Feldpolizei (GeFePo), responsible for spying on the populations of the satellite states and operations in foreign territory, and the Geheime Staatspolizei (GeStaPo), tasked with, among other things, spying on the German population and eradicating resistance movements and political countercurrents to the Nazi regime on the territory of the Großdeutsche Reich.

Formerly, there also existed the Reichssicherheitshauptamt (RSHA), charged with preparing for war, enforcing Nazi racial ideology, and exterminating authority figures in conquered territories, and its subordinate Sicherheitsdienst des Reichsführers (SD), charged with intimidating the population and eliminating political opponents. The RSHA and the SD were dismantled as parts of the SS in 1972, and their remnants were incorporated into the GeStaPo.

Law

Courts in the Großdeutsche Reich are usually composed of a prosecutor, a defense counsel and the judge, who passes sentence at the end of the trial. Due to racial segregation, different ethnic groups each have their own legislation and their own set of penalties. Germans who have been accused by persons of lesser "race" or who accuse some themselves are usually given preferential treatment, even if the evidence is clearly against them. The same applies in a mitigated form to Europeans. Exceptions apply, however, to sexual offenses committed by Germans, prostitution or other offenses punishable by revocation of the German status. In such cases, a balanced trial is usually held.

For certain individuals, such as known enemies of the state or opposition figures, no court is prepared as such. Either a show trial is conducted or an overwhelming amount of fictitious evidence is presented, which the court considers to be genuine.

Colonies

Großdeutschland owns several colonies around the world and beyond, which have no sovereignty of their own. Tributes in various forms are demanded from them, such as taxes, raw materials or agricultural products. Exempt from paying this tribute are the Germans living there, but not the businesses they run. It should be noted that the demands of the government in Germania for the colony can always be met with relative ease, at least mathematically, probably as a precautionary measure to prevent the flooding of the market on the European continent with cheap goods.

ger.Col. Rusland

The colony of Rusland is inhabited by only a few Germans, mostly Slavs are found here. Especially the hinterland is considered a dumping ground for undesirable individuals and generally a very inhospitable area. The land is sparsely populated, with the exception of the Europan cities, and is largely used for agriculture and resource extraction, which is reflected in the attention it receives from the government. Outside of the cities, Rusland is considered the least technologically developed place in the Großdeutsche Reich; Slavs living in sparsely populated areas far from accessible sources of raw materials do not even have water connections or electricity in their homes to any noticeable extent. As a result, state surveillance here is very patchy, which is exploited by resistance movements. Russia is currently home to about 140 million people.

ger.Col. North America

The North American continent is the quietest colony of the Großdeutsche Reich, as Canadians and Americans submitted to German rule after the war and allowed themselves to be disarmed, in many cases even profiting from it. During the occupation of the USA in particular, the German troops were supported by the followers of the Kux Klux Klan and the Amerikadeutsche Bund, who were later paid for it depending on their ethnicity. Today's Klan leadership keeps African-Americans as slaves as a privilege of their position, a practice carried out sporadically throughout the country, but considered distasteful among the colony's residents.

African Americans were persecuted and conscripted as T-class personnel or deported to West Africa for forced labor until the late 1950s. Latinos and Asians in the newly recognized colony were ordered to emigrate, respectively, to the great powers of South America and Asia and forcibly deported if they disobeyed. Today, no African Americans can be found in the North American public sphere; Latinos and Asians, on the other hand, are rare immigrants found primarily in the larger metropolitan areas.

The colony adopted the holidays of its occupier after its conquest, but additionally celebrates "Liberation Day" on July 4 each year, the anniversary of when the U.S. government surrendered. After the conquest, the metric system and the temperature unit Celsius were introduced here as an additional invective, and numerous U.S. landmarks were distorted; Mount Rushmore, for example, was reworked in 1955 and now shows the faces of Hitler, Himmler and Goebells rather than those of the American presidents. Due to the high level of technology in the colony, continuous AI-supported surveillance of the population is possible here, which means that there are very few rebels, most of them in the mountainous regions of the Andes or the Rocky Mountains. Today's Americans have to pay tribute, but for the most part, depending on their ethnicity, they lead a similar life to people in Europe. The colony of North America is also home to the physically largest Sondereinrichtung of the SKP, Sondereinrichtung-US19. There are about 500 million people living in North America today.

ger.Col. West Africa

West Africa, initially established as a colony for its mineral resources and farmed with African-American slaves, was later developed as a tourist magnet where guests can enjoy African flora and fauna and go on safari. Raw materials are also still mined here, some by enslaved indigenous people. West Africa is used as a launching point to venture north into depopulated Central Africa for weapons testing or to search for raw materials. The colony's slums are often without electricity or water connections, making surveillance difficult. In the better-off areas, however, a comfortable life is possible. Today, about 150 million people live in West Africa.

ger.Col. South Africa

South Africa is generally preferred to the colony in West Africa by business travelers, as the level of technology here is consistently very high after German rebuilding and life is almost like in Europe. The colony is used for growing exotic foods and extracting raw materials, and is considered a launching point for expeditions and developments in South Central Africa, often enslaving local tribes for the heavy labor and wiping them out when the work is done. South Africa is currently home to about 100 million people.

ger.Col. New Zealand

New Zealand is considered a luxury resort for Germans who want to spend a pleasant vacation and has been left mostly natural. The hotels and amusement facilities in the area are largely run by Germanic-born New Zealanders, unless they have emigrated. Ethnic groups other than the New Zealanders working as servants, Slavs, Indians and Europeans are rarely found here, as staying in the hotels is very expensive. The indigenous Māori population was wiped out when New Zealand was conquered, or driven to Australia.

New Zealand is considered a unique place to shoot movies. The film crews and actors of good directors are therefore supported by the state during their stay. New Zealand is the only colony that only pays tribute in the form of taxes to preserve the local nature. About four million people live in New Zealand at the moment.

ger. Moon Colony

The moon bases are inhabited almost exclusively by Germans and hand-picked Slavs, as they consist of a space port under construction by the Weltraummarine and research buildings of the SKP. The Earth satellite may only be entered by persons who provide a flawless record, in order to keep the risk of rebellion on the Moon as low as possible. Lapses or even violations of the law beyond speeding and illegal parking are a criterion for exclusion, especially among the Slavs, and unauthorized entry is punishable by a lifetime in labor camps or assignment as T-class personnel. Despite the strict criteria, Europeans and occasional residents of the vassal states can be found here, conducting research for the SKP. The colony is able to operate self-sufficiently for extended periods and can produce its own food and breathable air, although Earth products are preferred for reasons of taste. Because of the moon's low gravity, daily strength training is mandatory for all inhabitants of the lunar bases. About 500,000 people live on the moon at the moment.

ger. Mars Colony

The colony on Mars is still under construction at the moment, but is subject to the same access restrictions as the Moon for the same reasons, and is currently inhabited only by Germans and servant Slavs. They are already successfully farming resistant crops such as potatoes and raising edible meat in test tubes, but the colony is still dependent on supplies from Earth. New expedition personnel for the colony seldom volunteer, as there have been several cases of sent out squads not returning and disappearing without a trace. In the absence of satellite monitoring of the planet, the cause of this phenomenon has not yet been found. The population of Mars at the moment is about 1000 people.

Vasal States

Empire of Japan

The Empire of Japan is governed by a council of military personnel, the prime minister and members of the imperial family, whose commander-in-chief is the Japanese emperor. Subordinate to this council are the ministries and the governors of the colonies. Especially in the presence of the emperor, this council places a high value on etiquette, as he and his family are considered "of divine blood." It is said to have happened that an ambassador from the colonies did not survive an imperial audience because he did not lower his eyes when bowing to the emperor. Japanese is considered the official language, which was also to be enforced in the colonies at the beginning, but too often failed because of the difficulties the colony inhabitants had in understanding the language and the writing systems, which is why the complete Japaneseization of language was abandoned. In the presence of Japanese, however, it is expected that communication will be in understandable Japanese.

The technology of the Empire is about the same as that of base reality Japan, but it is interspersed with German products that take advantage of anomalous phenomena. At the moment, the Japanese islands are largely used for industry, and food is imported from the colonies. Similar to the Großdeutsche Reich, the Japanese discriminate against the peoples of their colonies, whom they consider inferior to themselves. They are largely conscripted for menial labor and, in remote areas, they are housed under disastrous conditions and even killed if the results are unsatisfactory. However, there are also a considerable number of non-Japanese who perform accounting and administrative tasks under the observation of Japanese controllers and supervisors. The Japanese themselves rarely leave the Japanese Islands to emigrate. Mostly they went to go on vacation, because they were ordered to do so as part of the armed forces or to hold a post in the colonies, such as local administration. Those who stayed behind work in all levels of society. Japanese are even internationally known for the high standards they set for their own work, which is why products from the islands are usually more expensive than those from the colonies.

In the Japanese Empire, the Shintō religion and Buddhism are widespread. Shintoism serves to legitimize the emperor, which is why it has a higher status than Buddhism, at least from the state's point of view. Despite this, the Dalai Lama still resides in Tibet and is left alone by the empire, even though technically he is subordinate to the Japanese emperor. The practice of Hinduism, on the other hand, is forbidden under threat of severe punishment, and its leaders were executed after the Japanese conquest of India.

As mentioned above, Japanese culture requires the inhabitants of the empire to always work with full dedication. Japanese people have high expectations of themselves and others, which is reflected in their work ethic. For example, many Japanese do not take breaks at work when necessary and work numerous hours of overtime, which can sometimes lead to death. At least among the Japanese themselves, honor has a high value, which they want to maintain and increase as much as possible. A serious loss of honor, such as a series of military defeats, can cause a general for example to commit ritual suicide, even though such practices are forbidden by imperial edict (It should be noted that the suicide rate among the Japanese in this universe is nevertheless much lower than ours. - Dr. Bauer). The Japanese also expect such an ethos from the peoples they subjugate, though they rarely fully satisfy them in this regard.

Thanks to comic books forgotten by American soldiers when they left, a huge anime and manga scene has developed in Japan, occasionally interspersed with Korean manwa and Chinese manhua, which are exported with great success to the rest of the world, even Großdeutschland. Other popular imported goods from the Japanese Empire include sushi, Chinese dishes, porcelain wares and bamboo.

Ottoman Empire

The Ottoman Empire is led by a monarch known as the Sultan. He has command over the entire state apparatus, but it can function without his intervention. The official language is Turkish, but other languages are tolerated.

In the Ottoman Empire, Sunni Islam is practiced as the state religion, while other religions and non-religious people are charged jizya (religious protection money) and are persecuted and put to forced labor if they do not pay. In remote regions, where the jizya is impractical, "infidels" are publicly stoned to death; this extends even to Japanese and Argentines in the country. Ottomans entering the Großdeutsche Reich are not permitted to continue practicing their religion for the duration of their stay there.

The Ottoman Empire's technology has lagged behind that of other states and is currently about ten years behind, a fact attributed to misguided management and too much focus on the state religion, which, for example, does not allow the collection of monetary interest. The Ottoman Army also frequently has to deal with insurgents who strike from remote locations in the colonies. The Ottoman Empire is the leading exporter of petroleum and petroleum products as well as rare earths, but has few other sources of income.

In the Ottoman Empire, Sharia law applies, whereby women must wear a hijab and an overgarment to cover themselves, even if they are tourists. The only exceptions are Germans and their servants, who are, however, met with anger by the inhabitants if they do not cover themselves. Likewise, women have no rights regarding the choice of husband, who is usually chosen by the head of the family. They are also not allowed to attend or study in any educational institution other than the koran school. Men usually have always the final say, but they are also the provider for the family and bring shame upon themselves if they do not adequately fulfill this obligation. Ottomans are known for their temperament, but are also considered very hospitable, however, when visiting, it should be noted that as Muslims they pray five times a day and arrange their daily routine with this knowledge.

Education is considered a high good by Ottomans, at least for men. The curriculum of Ottoman schools and universities is on par with that of other countries, and in some aspects even better, despite the country's backward technology. There is no oppression of the indigenous peoples of the colonies, although there is discrimination against Armenians, Kurds, Arabs and especially blacks. Nevertheless, all are expected to abide by existing laws and customs and to pay tribute to the Ottomans. However, they often fail to do so out of spite, which leads to repeated conflicts, often involving the use of weapons. In addition, there are frequent conflicts with communities whose practice of Islam does not conform to the Hanafite school of law. For these reasons, non-Turkish are barred from participating in government activities or running their own businesses. Meanwhile, the Ottomans' distrust even goes so far as to station parts of the army at critical infrastructure, such as oil production facilities or refineries.

Argentinia

Argentina is ruled by a military dictatorship, which appoints the president but also removes him if the population is dissatisfied with his performance. The president presides over a council of military officers and public figures, but does not have sole decision-making power; the council's approval is required for this. The official language is Spanish, although Portuguese is used as a second language because of the high percentage of lusophone populations in the colonies.

Roman Catholicism is considered the state religion in the country, although the religion was officially dissolved by the Großdeutsche Reich. Argentina's preservation efforts are viewed critically by the Großdeutsche Reich, causing tension between the two states; however, Argentina cannot give up the technological and economic support from Großdeutschland, and Großdeutschland has not yet viewed the state religion as a reason to go to the expense of invading South America or imposing sanctions (Information from the SCP databases also suggests that Catholic priests have occasionally been needed to contain demonic entities since 1962. However, these missions were conducted under strict secrecy and usually ended with the amnestication of the clergyman. While the SKP has had electronic priests for such matters since the 2000s, it is likely that now, after more than seventy years, the sole practice of a religion cannot be used as a reason for war for credibility reasons. - Dr. Bauer). In the absence of the Vatican, the Argentine Assembly of Bishops has arisen as the head of the Church. Other religions, while mostly tolerated in Argentina, are viewed with a shake of the head. Believing Christians are favored over non-believers or those of a different faith in many areas of life, even in the case of Japanese or Ottomans, though not Germans, where fear of reprisals prevails. Similar to the Ottomans, Argentines are not allowed to practice their religion on German soil; in addition, any jewelry and symbols, such as crosses, as well as literature, such as the Bible, are taken away from them before they enter the country, which is why most Argentines do not even take them with them.

Argentina's technology is comparable to Japan's, but of lower quality, which is compensated by more German imported goods. Argentina is known for its beef and other agricultural products, which are imported all over the world, as well as raw materials such as wood, metals, diamonds and limestone.

Argentines oppress indigenous peoples and use them for forced labor, often resulting in deaths; however, the European-born inhabitants of the colonies were granted the same rights as the Argentines themselves, except for the right to run government activities and businesses, only the Argentines themselves are allowed to administrate those. Outside of this racism and the fact that they run colonies, Argentines are a relatively open-minded people and harbor great enthusiasm for German technology. Actual Germans of Germanic descent, however, are treated with fear and respect, thanks in large part to the Pope's 1962 public execution that officially deemed their religion abolished, although they still hold Christian values. The country has few large resistance movements, but must contend with very many micro-organizations, such as in Mexico and Chile.

Economy

The economy of the Großdeutsche Reich is, as far as trades are concerned, a regulated market economy, with German-run enterprises subsidized to some extent. However, when state institutions, in most cases the SKP and the Wehrmacht, procure products or manufacture them themselves, the state may, if necessary, print new money to cover costs incurred, if they do not already receive or enforce rebates. Since the Großdeutsche Reich controls all exchange rates and the prices of almost all commodities, and the Reichsmark is at the same time a currency pegged to gold, a decline in the value of the currency is ruled out.

In order not to be affected by the fluctuating price of gold, the vassal states were forced to switch their currency to other materials, Argentina using silver to cover the peso, or in the case of the Ottoman Empire or the Japanese Empire, to introduce unpegged currencies in the form of the Ottoman lira and the Japanese yen.

Traffic

The European population and those of the colonies of North America, South Africa and New Zealand are fully motorized in various forms. Most Germans drive expensive luxury cars, while Europeans and others of their class drive mid-range vehicles, which in both cases are produced only by German manufacturers. Slavs, Indians, Arabs, and other ethnic groups of their class usually only have enough money to afford vehicles made by companies that are either located in other countries or are not subsidized, such as most car makers that are not originally from countries considered Germanic. Women are allowed to obtain a driver's license, but no vehicle may be registered to their name. Without a vehicle provided, they usually get around by bicycle or electric scooter, for which no papers are required.

There is an extensive public transportation system, consisting of buses, cabs and streetcars, which is free for Germans. All other classes pay the same prices. The same applies to transportation by train, plane or ferry. Because of the anomalous propulsion system developed during World War II, transportation is usually faster than in basic reality and with fewer emissions.

Road traffic rules mostly coincide with those of the base reality, though there are certain parking spaces and parking lots and in a few places even roads designated for use by Germans only. A good example of such parking spaces are those in the supermarket parking lot directly in front of the entrance door. There is no disabled parking.

The military and especially the SKP are showing great interest in wormhole technology to cover large distances in moments. The first functional devices already exist, but the stable wormholes are too small to use for mass transportation. The generators are also very high-maintenance and energy-intensive, making large-scale deployment not yet practical. Therefore, if large numbers of personnel or cargo must be moved, the SKP prefers to use hired thaumaturges or reality benders, provided personnel with such skills are available and the process is practical.

Space Travel

The German Empire and in particular the SKP operate numerous institutes and rocket launching pads worldwide for space research. At the moment, commercial space travel is not yet possible, because all available infrastructures are currently used for satellites, maintenance and supply of space stations and extraplanetary colonies, construction of the lunar space port and star cruisers. Of all states, the Großdeutsche Reich currently has the most space stations and satellites, including the components of the GPBS (Global Positionsbestimmungsssystem) navigation network and the network of the Heimdal system, which allows real-time detection and even interdiction of reality changes around the world, provided they take place in orbit.

To transport goods and personnel between Earth, orbit and the Moon, hydrogen rockets are used for the most part. While there are some anomalies that allow direct access to the Moon, orbit, and even Mars, these are too impractical or unreliable for the sheer size of the operations underway and are used only for emergencies and highly sensitive material. Star cruisers use nuclear pulse propulsion for propulsion and chemical propulsion only for maneuvering. This allows them to reach high enough speeds so that they can make it from the Moon to Mars in a week.

Current data suggests that research is being conducted on nuclear pulse propulsion systems based on the principle of antimatter. Likewise, research is being pushed into gravity-manipulating technology and faster-than-light travel. The first applicable results are expected in the 2030s.

Culture

The culture of the Großdeutsche Reich is built around the superiority of the Germanic peoples over all others. Germans are seen as a model for all other ethnic groups to emulate, but at the same time it is insistently pointed out that the German ideal can never be achieved by other peoples. It is considered the burden and task of the Germans to take care of the rest of creation.

Society

The society of the Großdeutsche Reich is essentially divided into the three classes dictated by racial segregation, with Germans being extremely advantaged and women severely discriminated against. The entire population is indoctrinated from childhood as not to question racial segregation and gender roles and to discourage opposition.

There are officially no sexual preferences that deviate from heterosexuality; these are considered mental illnesses that are "treated" in re-education camps. The only deviant form that is socially tolerated is asexuality, presumably because it is easy to hide and conceal.

Despite the ban on religion, certain holidays and customs that originated in Christianity were retained in the Großdeutsche Reich, including Christmas, Easter, and New Year's Eve, but stripped of all religious symbolism. Numerous holidays, however, were abolished and replaced by others or rededicated. Ascension Day, for example, was designated as Father's Day; Epiphany, Corpus Christi, All Saints' Day, and the Day of Penance and Prayer were abolished; and new additions included the "Führer's Birthday," Victory Day (on July 7), which celebrates the end of World War II, and Relief Day (on February 27), which celebrates the extermination of the Jewish population.

Social Affairs

There is no unemployment in the Großdeutsche Reich. Those who are unable to find regular work are usually employed by the state, normally as cleaners or transport workers. Germans are not included in the unemployment statistics thanks to their unconditional basic income, but it is considered a sign of boundless laziness and decadence among Germans not to pursue a job despite this income, which is why the vast majority of Germans nevertheless have a profession.

Due to the fact that every adult has a job, whether forced or not, every inhabitant of the Großdeutsche Reich has enough income to afford shelter, clothes and food. Homelessness and hunger are considered defeated in the Großdeutsche Reich, but the population is divided over the quality of housing and food affordable to them, at least in Rusland and West Africa.

Healthcare

Most hereditary diseases have been eradicated by consistent eugenics, at least on German territory. Most infectious diseases and cancer are also no longer a danger, except for the cold virus, the flu and various childhood diseases, even though Germans have a higher resistance, in some cases even immunity, to them thanks to their augmented genes.

As a result of these developments, disabilities are almost non-existent in the public sphere; if someone is discovered, however, he or she is either rendered infertile, deported to Rusland, or terminated on the spot. The only disabilities that are accepted by the public are injuries caused by foreign influences, such as battle scars or body parts lost during war operations. However, procedures now exist to repair such damage without leaving a trace in the vast majority of cases. Obesity is also considered a fatal flaw and a disgrace, and is virtually non-existent due to a high value placed on physical exercise.

Pharmacies offer a vast assortment of highly effective medicines, some of which work within minutes, and even mass-produced panacea that can remedy any physical or mental ailment. This medicine, however, requires a prescription and is very expensive for non-Germans; moreover, among Germans themselves it is considered an act of weakness to take a panacea, which is why most Germans shy away from using it and use it only in case of invalidity. Some do not even use it then.

The use of hallucinogens, classical drugs, is forbidden in all of Großdeutsche Reich. Alcohol, cigarettes and tobacco, however, are tolerated, but smoking is more common among the lower social classes. Among Germans and large parts of Europeans, it is frowned upon as a hobby of the poor.

Education

Children and adolescents from the age of ten, regardless of their ethnicity, are obliged to be members of the Hitler Youth until the age of 18. This youth association serves to indoctrinate and prepare boys for military service and girls for their role as mothers and wives. To this end, all children are called to "duty" twice a week, such as hikes, fitness exercises, special lessons, or introduction to military duties and skills, such as handling weapons. One of these days is always Saturday, and on the other day the children are excused from attending school.

There is general compulsory schooling, which is enforced vehemently, but the quality of the schools and the teaching material is strongly dependent on one's own ethnic group. German children are educated with the most modern teaching materials and specialized teachers, Europeans receive an education comparable to the base reality level, all other children receive only the most necessary knowledge from strict teachers. All students start in kindergarten, then move on to elementary school, and then must qualify for either high school or middle school, although the level for high schools is so high that almost only Germans and highly gifted non-Germans meet these criteria. Those who cannot qualify for middle school and are not German are sent to Realschule. Truancy is usually punished with punitive work and detention, and in the case of repeat offenders, physical discipline by specialized school personnel, regardless of ethnicity. The rule of thumb here is that no blood should be shed. Especially among Germans, absence from class is considered a sign of laziness and lack of discipline, not only for the child in question but also for his or her parents.

School days usually last from 07:00 to 14:30 with 90-minute school hours, but extensions and free periods are possible. In addition to school subjects and profile lessons familiar from the basic reality, there are also lessons on peoples and weapons. There are no ethics or religion classes. Curricula are designed for effectiveness and make little use of modern pedagogy. Teachers are allowed to use a cane to rap the fingers of inattentive students or slap the table to get everyone's attention again. At parent-teacher conferences, parents receive suggestions and advice on how to properly educate their children; teachers' methods are rarely questioned.

Apprenticeships are open to all, although in many of them there is extreme discrimination against women. After a successful application, most apprenticeships last three and a half years and consist of work in the company and vocational school. Companies are not allowed to withhold knowledge about their occupation from apprentices if they can avoid it, in an attempt to continue to employ them as apprentices if they fail their final examination. If full training is not possible due to the nature of the business, "training days" are offered to provide the necessary knowledge and are paid for by the state.

Those who wish to study at a university must pass an entrance exam, the difficulty of which varies from university to university, but in all cases is so demanding that only highly gifted students and Germans with their heightened mental capacity can pass it. Due to the resulting very small number of students per year, professors and lecturers can directly address them and thus increase the quality of studies, which means that there are far fewer dropouts and de-registered students than in base reality, but also far fewer students overall. Student fraternities as in the base reality do not exist; instead, comradeships exist.

Teaching institutions that focus on the study of anomalous phenomena, such as the Mage Academy, require a license from the SKP to conduct their research and training. The same admission requirements apply as for universities with the addition that students must not have a criminal record and must not be suspected of belonging to illegal associations. In addition, they are monitored seamlessly for the duration of their studies to prevent abuse of anomalies.

Abnormally gifted individuals form a special case; such individuals, when identified, are educated in special schools and indoctrinated particularly heavily to ensure absolute obedience to the SKP and state leadership. (I should note that these children, youths, and in some cases adults are not detained. For the most part, they are completely normal educational institutions. As far as we could tell, only those who pose a danger to themselves and/or others are locked up. - Dr. Bauer)

Science

Similar to its military strength, the Großdeutsche Reich claims to be ahead of the rest of the world on the scientific level in order to maintain the façade of superiority. All scientific institutions of the Reich are therefore under state supervision and receive funding. The degree of this support depends on the level of research results and their applicability. If an institute does not perform satisfactorily, it is either closed or its management is replaced by the state. Research can be in all kinds of fields, but only businesses, institutions and organizations with a permit from the SKP and, of course, the SKP itself are allowed to study and create anomalies.

Unlike in base reality, in the case of discoveries and patents, only those who actually participated in the respective achievement are rewarded, any funders, institutions or individuals who supported the research cannot claim rewards or fame for themselves and must pay money to its creator for the patents they use. These usually expire upon the death of the respective researcher or inventor and become state property, for which money must also be paid if it is to be used. In this way, scientists and inventors are motivated and less dependent on the ideas of their supporters.

Media

There are numerous German news channels and websites, as well as newspapers, but these are all subject to state censorship and are monitored by the Reich Ministry for Popular Enlightenment and Propaganda. As mentioned above, the press is forbidden to criticize and question government actions and is allowed, at most, to report neutrally on them, if at all. The same applies to social networks, with offenders subject to suspension, a fine, and, for more serious offenses, a stay in a re-education camp. The intensity of the punishment depends on the severity of the offense and the consequences. Since 2010, the Internet has been monitored entirely by AIs.

Großdeutschland has an extremely diverse media landscape, consisting of movies, television series, plays, video games, literature and many others. However, they are all subject to state censorship, for example, it is forbidden to use Germans as villains, exceptions exist only for historical opponents of the Nazis, saboteurs such as Claus Schenk von Staufenberg and Germans who have been stripped of their status as such due to crimes and have not committed suicide. Also prohibited is the depiction of Jews and Negroids as protagonists, criticism or questioning of practices of government institutions, and the mockery of Hitler and other famous Nazi collaborators. Symbols of other ideologies, such as the hammer and sickle, may only be used for educational materials or in such a form that it is clear that the creator of the material rejects said ideology.

It was noted that the Reich Ministry for Popular Enlightenment and Propaganda also accepts media from other states, for example, in the Großdeutsche Reich there is a noticeable anime and manga scene and enthusiasts of Argentine cartoons. Comic books enjoyed great popularity, especially in the colony of North America, but did not really gain a foothold in Europe and other colonies until the onset of the Greater German Oligarchy, since Hitler disliked comics and publishers therefore feared reprisals.

Even within Großdeutschland, foreign actors can achieve noticeable fame and even star in German productions; the same is true for German actors of all ethnicities, although Germanic-born Germans are preferred when the roles allow. Negroids were usually portrayed through the use of painting the actor in question with brown or black paint, but since the breakthrough of computer generated images (CGA) in the seventies, this has been done digitally for cost reasons.

(A surprising similarity of the medial works to those of base reality was noted. While the content differs and is designed to cement German superiority and the subservience of all other peoples in R-3378-DE, plot lines and characters are considerably similar to their versions in base reality. In the case of American superheroes, for example, such as Superman and his R-3378-DE counterpart Übermensch, this may be justified by the fact that the Nazis were quick to indoctrinate the populace and draw them to their side after the war, but we have yet to find an explanation for why more modern franchises, take the Portal series for example as a comparison, are so similar. My guess is that there is an underlying mirror universe effect at work here. But the question is, are we influencing them or are they influencing us? - Dr. Bauer.)

Sports

Germanic Germans are required by society to participate in at least one sport in their free time, whether it be ball sports, combat training, or simple athletic disciplines such as endurance running. In every city there are parks and sports centers that can be used by everyone, for Germans the entrance is free and they get the best available sports equipment and are given preference in the use of premises. Slavs, on the other hand, have to use what Europeans leave them and are usually forced to go to cheaper and less well-equipped centers or parks in the ghettos.

The tradition of the Olympic Games has been maintained, as well as world championships in various other sports, which are always held, first and foremost soccer, followed by tennis and basketball. American sports such as football and baseball are still played in the colony of North America, but like many other regional sports, they have never caught on worldwide. In order not to play with always only four teams from Großdeutschland and the vassal states, most colonies are allowed to set up their own sports teams and let them compete. The colony of Rusland, for example, has not been allowed to field teams since 1981 after a series of brutal fouls against German players.

All sports teams vie for German athletes in their lineups because they are superior to normal players thanks to genetic and cybernetic enhancements. Often their performance is further enhanced by doping, but this has never been officially proven. As a further guarantee of victory, referees have been instructed in the past to treat Germans more leniently. Among other things, a foul committed by star soccer player Sven Dahl during the 1986 World Cup, where he put the ball in the goal by hand, resulted in no penalty for him and the goal was considered legal. Such practices, however, are nowadays considered even by the Germans themselves to be an insult to the spirit of sportsmanship, which is why it has been largely discontinued.

Among the population of the vassal states, people have now come to terms with the fact that the German team from Europe is guaranteed to win every World Cup. Instead, they celebrate second place and hope that their own team does not meet Großdeutschland.
