Bundeskolonie (Federal Colony)/Bundeskolonien (Federal Colonies)

The German Federal Republic classifies it’s mature colonial holdings as Federal Colonies, and is working at the process of allowing them to fully mature into the status as Federal States within the Federal Republic itself. The Federal Colonies located on the world of Nielungen in the Neubayern system has been the first to except this challenge, and is already in the process of becoming Federal States, a process that should be completed by 2308.

Hochtannen, Belle Terra (Alpha Centauri)
Head of Government: Herzog (Duke)/Herzogin (Duchess)
Federal Representative: Kolonialverwalter (Colonial Administrator)
Location: Core
Established: day-month-2176
Capitol: d
Population: 98,000
Type of Government: Representative Republic w/Constitutional Monarch
Notes: Like many nations the establishment of a colony on Belle Terra was the first interstellar colonial holding established by the Kingdom of Hannover, and the colony of Hochtannen was founded with the assistance of their British allies. Hochtannen is classified by the German Federal Republic as a Federal Colony with the many benefits that are associated with such status, but it is not so recognized by the Belle Terra Colonial Ruling Council since such recognition would require the allowance of a German Representative to be granted a seat on the governing council. Hochtannen is seen as a colony of staunch nationalists whom would love to become a full Federal State, but know that option is not politically viable at this time.

Capitol: d
Population: 90,680,701
Type of Government: Representative Republic
Notes: <> was the first colony that was established by Bavaria on Nibelungen. As time passed the Colony grew at such a rate that it became necessary for Bavaria to establish a second colony to deal with the massive economic growth that motivated the Free State of Bavaria to extend rights to establish a colony to the Kingdom of Hannover and later to the Electorate of Brandenburg.

Established: day-month-2241
Capitol: d
Population: 2,784,404

Federal Representative: Kolonialverwalter (Colonial Administrator)
Location: European Arm
Established: day-month-2231
Capitol: d
Population: 4,241,653

Population: d
Type of Government: Representative Republic w/a Constitutional Monarch
Notes: The Free State of Bavaria assisted the Electorate of Brandenburg to establish it’s first extra-solar colony on the world of Dunkelheim alongside it’s penal colony of ‘non-violent’ offenders. The Elector of Brandenburg was ecstatic about the possibilities and threw the support of the Brandenburg space assets to seeing that the colony would not fail. The Elector appointed several of the noble families of the other east German states to oversee the construction of the colony of ‘New Prussia’ that had included the Hohenzollern family who have since risen in prominence in the colonies political circles or power and have since become the constitutional monarchs who administer the colony with the aide of the locally elected officials.

Federal Representative: Kolonialverwalter (Colonial Administrator)
Location: European Arm
Established: day-month-2228
Capitol: d
Population: d
Type of Government: Representative Republic w/Constitutional Monarch
Notes: The Kingdom of Hannover approached the Free State of Bavaria about establishing a colony on Dunkelheim during one of the periods of close Hanoverian and Bavarian cooperation. The French government worried about the founding of the colony since it appeared that the German states where cooperating to well, and French government agents started to work at causing dissension between the German states. If not for the discovery of this fact, the Franco-Bavarian alliance might not have suffered as badly as it did with the losses suffered by the Bavarians during the Central Asian War and the cooling relations between the ruling military junta and Munich.

Kolonie Zwei, Hochbaden (Hochbaden)
Head of Government: Ministerpräsident (Prime Minister)
Federal Representative: Kolonialverwalter (Colonial Administrator)
Location: European Arm
Established: day-month-2231
Established: day-month-2303
Capitol: d
Population: d
Type of Government: Representative Republic

d, Heidelscheimat (Rho Eridani)
Head of Government: Ministerpräsident (Prime Minister)
Federal Representative: Kolonialverwalter (Colonial Administrator)
Location: Chinese Arm
Established: day-month-2228
Capitol: d
Population: 1,158,413
Type of Government: Representative Republic (currently functions as an Authoritarian Republic)
Notes: The Bavarian colony of <> located on the world of Heidelscheimat has been a major bone of contention for the German Federal Republic since it had been the destination for the former Bavarian Hardliners whom had established the so-called “Bavarian Government-in-Exile” in France in the aftermath of their failed coup attempt to stop Bavaria form joining with the other German states to form the new Federal Republic.
While the former Bavarian colony of <> on the planet Heidelscheimat does not officially recognize the legitimacy of the new German Federal Republic, the new Federal Government has dispatched representatives to lead the negotiations with the colony that would either end with the colony becoming part of the new Federal Republic, or recognizing that it would be going off on it's own as a new independent nation. These negotiations have been strained since the leaders of the failed ‘Munich Putsch’ have since taken over the leadership positions in the colony. Among these is the former Deputy Prime Minister of the Free State of Bavaria who had attempted to assassinate the then-Bavarian Prime Minister after he had agreed to send Bavarian representatives to the Constitutional Convention to draft a viable frame work to build a unified German government after the passage of the referendum with 75% of the popular vote.
To further complicate matters, the new leaders of the colony have given support to the various 'Free German state' movements that have sprung up since German reunification. The most dangerous, and reckless has been the 'Free Bavaria' who has taken to bombing civilian targets and took responsibility for the sabotage of the Hochbaden defense systems in 2298, and later was directly responsible for the Kaefer Riots that caused so much damage to Hochbaden in the year prior to it's destruction by Keafer forces. It has been feared that the destruction of Hochbaden directly related to acts "Free Bavaria" sabotage.
The recent loss of the last of the great Bavarian battelcrusiers, the BSKMS von der Tann, has caused a lot of concern among the highest ranking members of the so-called Bavarian Government-in-Exile, since it was the only warship that had remained in the Bayernsche Sternkreigsmarine hands capable of carrying fighters. They are becoming more and more attuned to the fact their position has become increasingly unattainable, especially since their heavy handed tactics with the miners of Gerollblock has sent them into the 'Bundesrepublik' camp and request that the Deutsche Bundessternmarine deploy a squadron to protect their trade routes with the Core Worlds. This same kind of tactics has caused constant civil and social unrest amongst the colonists as well. Especially with the current regimes tight control of the colonies boarders and colonial interaction with outsiders. One such skirmish that occurred when a Texas Ranger assisted a family of colonial farmers form being forcefully evicted from their ranch near the colonies boarder with Texan colony. Over thirty Free Bavaria Army personnel where killed in the incident.
With the increasing hostilities towards the Texan colonists has caused severe tension between the Republic of Texas and the 'Bavarian Government-in-Exile.' This has possibly caused the Texans to rethink their earlier position to support the 'Free Bavarian' colony if the Federal Republic would invade. The Federal Ambassador to Texas has started to work out an agreement that would place the colony of Heidelscheimat under Texan jurisdiction until an unbiased referendum could be held to decide the colonies fate in case it does come down to military force being used to quell the 'Free Bavaria" terrorist attacks on German citizens.


d (Federal Protectorate)/d (Federal Protectorates)

The German Federal Republic classifies those settlements and young colonies as Federal Protectorates whereas the majority of interstellar nations refer to these settlements as ‘outposts’. The current German classification primarily has to do with the fact that the German Government has started a policy for the future development of these settlements into full-fledged Federal Colonies.

Agreements with the British government has allowed the Deutsche Rote Kreuz to set up a major refugee aide and resettlement outpost centered here.

Shortly after it's discovery several select elite units of the British Royal Marine Corps and Deutsche Bundesstern-Marineinfantrie where sent in to ferret the Käfers out of their dug in positions. While the casualties where high the joint British and German forces finally liberated the world form Käfers and the Germans have since established listening and refueling posts using the Käfers own equipment against them where ever possible.

Location: Chinese Arm
Established: day-month-year
Capitol: Steinhafen
Population: 5,450
Type of Government: Representative Republic w/Appointed Governor
Notes: Unlike the troubles that have been experienced with Heidelscheimat, the miners of Hanestadt Steinhafen (Hanseatic City of Stone Haven) have welcomed the representatives of the Federal Republic with open arms. Especially after several "Free Bavarian" Cruisers had fired upon freighters that where registered to the major German corporations that owned major interests in the mines. The Miners Trade Union has since approached the German Federal Government and asked for assistance in the settling matter. This has been one of the reasons that two squadrons of Deutsche Bundessternmarine warships have been on a rotating deployment to the system for almost two years now. Several unofficial skirmishes have been reported between these squadrons and the 'Frei Bayerische Sternkreigsmarine' since the deployments have started, and the last of these skirmishes cost the 'Free Bavarians' the BSKMS von der Tann (their last functioning battlecrusier).
After the destruction of their mother ship, all but one of the six <d>-class fighters surrendered. The remaining fighter attempted to ram the primary orbital O'Neill colonial habitats to 'punish' the ‘renegade’ miners and colonists for their 'treason' against the Free State of Bavaria. Luckily the fighter was destroyed before it could complete it's suicide run against the colonial habitat, it's pilot Oberleutenant zur Raum Helmunt Hess was remanded to the local legal authorities where he was tried for 'Crimes against Humanity' in his attempt to destroy the colonial facilities full of civilians. The remaining five fighter pilots and the nearly eighty survivors of the destroyed BKSMS von der Tann where detained at separate facilities on Gerollblock to await reparation back to Heidelscheimat in the near future.


Bundesgebiet (Federal Territory)/Bundesgebiete (Federal Territories)

The German Federal Republic classifies those areas that they have surveyed and prepared for future colonial development as Federal Territories, but they also classify ‘enclaves’ as a Federal Territory with special status since they exist inside the infrastructure of another powers colonial system. The Federal Government has begun working at a major program to provide these ‘enclaves’ with a limited about of capability of self-sufficiency incase relations with the ‘parent’ or ‘host’ colony becomes strained.

Established: day-month-year
Capitol: d
Population: 3,000
Type of Government: Representative Republic w/Appointed Governor
Notes: <blank> is a German outpost that was established on the world of Wotanswelt what has been in the process of preparing the world for further colonization efforts by the German Federal Republic, but with the outbreak of the Kaefer Wars it is believed that the outposts development will be curtailed in the efforts to rebuild the devistated colonies on the European Arm. But since the outpost has since become a major refugee center being operated by the Deutsche Rote Kruez it has been hinted that the settlement will be upgraded soon.

Frischer Anfang, Schönenwelt (DM+27 28217)
Head of Government: Governor General (Regler-Allgemein or Regler-General)
Federal Representative: Kolonialverwalter (Colonial Administrator)
Location: d
Established: day-month-2274
Capitol: Frischer Angang
Population: 1,500
Type of Government: Representative Republic w/Appointed Governor
Notes: Originally founded as a European Space Agency Research station, the Germans have since begun to expand their share of the facilities with plans to establish a major research outpost of their own on Schönenwelt to be known as Frischer Anfang (Fresh Start). Until recent years, the German contribution to the ESA research outpost had been severely understaffed since German Re-Unification, and it's personnel were predominately AR-I sponsored and considered primarily as a civilian concern and not a governmental one to ‘ease ruffled feathers’ of the other ESA member delegations. But this has started to change as the new Federal Chancellor has taken a major interest in increasing governmental support for any scientific research that will hopefully improve the standards of living of Humans in space. Germany hopes that the Schönenwelt Outpost will cement the bonds founded by the ESA and bridge the differences between it and other ESA members.
