The Allied German States (AGS, German: Allianz Deutscher Länder, ADL) is the loosely organized collection of Kingdoms, Duchies, and republics that were once the Fifth World country of the Federal Republic of Germany.

Recent History[]


The AGS is notable for having several great dragons, and a (relatively) large number of Night Ones and Giants.

Component States and Major Areas[]

The confederated nations that comprise the AGS are as follows:

There are also territories that are part of the AGS that are unassociated with the above nations:


In Germany, the underworld is dominated by the Russian Vory and the coalition of European crime families of the Mafia. The Russians are strongest in the north and east, and the Mafia is strongest in the south and west. In Germany there are other organized crime groups present; the Grey Wolves, the Albanian Fares, the Yakuza, the Triads, and Romanian gangs. Cologne is Triad territory and Dusseldorf is Yakuza territory.

Germany is also plagued by many gangs. The autobahn has the problem of motorized gangs (e.g. the Raubritter) which are modern bands of highwaymen and the various biker gangs (both the go-gangs and the more traditional outlaw motorcycle clubs). When it comes to urban gangs, both the Rhine-Ruhr sprawl and Berlin are notorious for street gangs.
