Gazetteer : Neubayern

Neubayern (OI-0202, A7889C9-C) was one of the original three worlds settled from Earth. Neubayern’s German-speaking colonists were fractious and warlike throughout most of their history. The conflicts culminated in the Great War of 5258 AD; the Clusters’ only full scale nuclear war. In the centuries since then, Neubayern recovered and grew into a profit-hungry industrial power.
Fifteen years ago, Neubayern’s proletariat rose up and overthrew their corporate rulers. Today, the world’s highly popular Communist state preaches expansion of the Revolution out into other worlds. Neubayern’s Communists have continued the world’s industrial successes, and have built up a powerful space navy. The Clusters’ other Great Powers view developments on Neubayern warily.
