Flag of Germany.svg

Germany was a country in Europe before the Great War.


After World War II, the country was divided into three distinct states, the German Democratic Republic (East Germany), the Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany), and the Republic of Austria.

By 2060, as the European Commonwealth dissolved, the country fell into disarray, bickering and quarreling with its neighbors over the last few remaining resources on Earth.

Country of origin of the creators of the renowned PPK12 Gauss Pistol, M72 Gauss rifle, MP9 10mm SMG and the Vindicator minigun. Germany also had some sort of human mutation experiment program for creating super warriors.[1]

Little is known about the country outside the few references mentioned above, although the presence of Gauss rifles in mainland United States in copious amounts as well as employment of a strikingly similar weapon system by the Chinese implies the Germans had equal opportunity business deals with both sides of the Great War.


Notable Germans


Germany is only mentioned in Fallout 3, though products from it are mentioned or appear in Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 76, and Fallout Tactics.


  1. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.85: "Michael Masters
    Michael Masters was an esteemed electronic and biological engineer before the bombs dropped. He doesn't remember much of the first years after D.C. was destroyed, but he does remember his human life and resents his Ghoulish nature (though he does appreciate the gift of longevity). He was extremely intelligent and jovial in his old life, but living as a Ghoul has made him very pessimistic and angry at the world. He sees his Ghoulness as a karmic curse, because he was attempting to keep America at the forefront of human mutation experiments, breeding super-warriors after being inspired by the work of the German, Russian, and Chinese doctors."
