This mod requires Brave New World.



While various "Germanic" peoples have occupied northern-central Europe for thousands of years, the modern political entity known as "Germany" is extremely young, created almost single-handedly by the imperialistic Prussian politician Otto von Bismarck some 140 years ago. During its brief existence Germany has had a profound effect - for good and for bad - on human history.

Robert Blum[]

Robert Blum was a leader of the 1848 March Revolution in Germany, a democratic politician, publicist, poet, publisher, revolutionist and member of the National Assembly of 1848. He fought for a unified nationalist Germany but opposed ethnocentrism and it was his strong belief that no one people should rule over another. Although claiming immunity as a member of the National Assembly, he was arrested during a stay at the hotel Stadt London in Vienna and executed for his role in the Revolutions of 1848 in the German states.

Dawn of Man[]

"The Springtime of the People is now, oh revolutionary Robert Blum. The son of a failed theologian, and a craftsman, you led a liberal movement of professors and lawyers, embracing the 1848 Märzrevolution as your own. At the pre-parliament and parliaments of Frankfurt, dominated by the formally educated, you formed a stately figure, dominating the parliament with energetic planning, an imposing figure, and pithy speeches. Driven by a non-ethnocentric nationalism, you opposed the Armistice of Malmö, forcing Prussia and the German Empire to accept the Danish annexation of Schleswig. But while you dominated the Frankfurt parliament, the winds of change were to buffet your movement, as the forces of conservatism would rise, their ugly heads rearing once more. You travelled to Vienna and joined the revolutionary forces against the reactionaries, but were arrested upon defeat, and sentenced to death as your diplomatic immunity was ignored ignominiously. On November the 9th you were executed, which would later come to mark the Schicksalstag, or Day of Fate in Germany.

Oh enlightened Robert Blum, the time has come to once again be the face of the March Revolution. Stand as a symbol for the liberal nationalism of your time and take back your country from the coup-plotters and fanatics which punctuate your great nation. Can you lead Germany to a new age of liberal nationalism? Will you build a civilization that can stand the test of time?"

Introduction: Greetings, I am Robert Blum, and it is my mission to keep unified this great nation, Germany."

Defeat: "I die for freedom, may my country remember me."
