Nations name: Bundesrepublik Deutschland Federal Republic of Germany Capital: Berlin Language: German Birthday: Unknown National flower: Centaurea Human name: Ludwig Height: 180cm 511 appearance A tall burly country and one of the Axis Powers who is constantly being harassed by Italy and his crazy boss Hitler. Hes lived a life of hardship and pretty much it seems as though his life cant get any worse than it already is. His older brother is Prussia who lives with him in his house and is also his drinking buddy. Prussia affectionately calls him West but due to his impulsive nature and his habit of buying strange things off the net Germany is usually annoyed with him. However underneath it all they seem to have a healthy sibling relationship and care for each other. Often bailing him out saving him and anything else you want to throw in there Germany although usually bothered by him considers Italy his best friend. They met during WWI where Germany proceeded to take Italy captive. Once WWII broke out Italy immediately became Germanys ally which Germany and the other German officers freaked out at when they heard the news. After years of spending time together theyve managed to maintain a close friendship and even though Germany seems to have the short end of the stick in their relationship he takes good care of Italy more or less like an older brother of some sorts. He has a rather serious but pessimistic personality both on and off the clock and is a total neatfreak and ruleabiding perfectionist who does not tolerate mistakes. His hobbies include walking his three dogs named Blackie Aster and Berlitz who are just as manly as he is cleaning reading recycling saving money and baking. Its said that all of his pentup stress is released once he has a beer. Surprisingly he is completely illiterate when it comes to technology and relies on schedules and manuals making him very inflexible. Italy once commented that Germanys a fan of hardcore BDSM stating that some of the videos even had dogs in them Often times hes seen wearing a Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes this was left out of the anime adaptation. It should also be noted that he has an underlying respect for Grandpa Rome whom he idolizes and although it doesnt seem to be a hobby of his he enjoys touring Italy. His human name was revealed to be Ludwig but without a given surname. Hidekaz Himaruya stated that ...the fans will find out eventually.
