Germany is a nation state in Europe. In 2013, it was #8 in the world in terms of military expenditure.[1]


Following defeat in World War I, Germany lost control of its colonies. Following defeat in World War II, it was partitioned into two separate states, East & West Germany and became a frontier state in the Cold War.

Mass surveillance

In 2015, Germany signalled that it intended to ease laws that make it hard for organisations to operate open access public WiFi.[2]

In 2016, a report indicated that the BND was planning a large increase in its mass surveillance capabilities.[3]

In 2017, German authorities were revealed to be "preparing a law that will force device manufacturers to include backdoors within their products that law enforcement agencies could use at their discretion for legal investigations. The law would target all modern devices, such as cars, phones, computers, IoT products, and more."[4]

Arms Production

Germany is the #5 nation worldwide as regards arms export from 2012-2016, after 4 UN Security Council members, US, Russia, China and France.[5]
