Nazi Germany, also called The Third Reich or The Greater Reich, then later called The Fourth Reich, is the world's sole superpower, an interplanetary fascist totalitarian state government, created by the NSDAP (National Socialist German Workers' Party, colloquially referred to as the Nazi Party) under by Adolf Hitler in 1933, that encompasses Germany, annexed states, colonial holdings and explored planets. Core to its violent and cynical ideology was the promotion of Antisemitism, militarism, anti-Communism and pseudo-scientific Aryanism and eugenics.
By the end of World War I and the Treaty of Versailles began, on June 28, 1919. Being the primary belligerent of the losing side, Germany suffered harsh and humiliating terms, including crippling war reparations, near complete disarmament, numerous territorial concessions, and admission of guilt for causing the war. In September 19, 1919, Adolf Hitler, a World War I veteran and Corporal of the Army, joined the German Workers' Party at the beer hall in Munich, the capital city of Bavaria in Germany. Through the power of his oratory skills and sheer force of personality, he manipulated its Leader Anton Drexler and eventually usurped him two years later, transforming this little party into a burgeoning political movement. That party was called the National Socialist German Workers' Party.
Hitler based the Nazi platform on reversing the Treaty of Versailles, restrengthening the nation, and on a stab-in-the-back notion that the German military did not "lose" the war but was rather betrayed at a critical moment by traitorous civilians like Communists and Jews, thereby causing the war effort to fail. These policies proved popular among those embittered by the Treaty. The Great Depression allowed the party's popularity to grow even faster as impoverished Germans flocked to Hitler's banner. The Nazi Party grew steadily until it became the largest political entity in the Weimar Republic in 1933. Having more seats than any other party in the Reichstag, Adolf Hitler was appointed as "Reichskanzler" in January 30, 1933. The NSDAP quickly moved to silence all opposition to its power by passing the Enabling Act of 1933. This act spelled the end of the Weimar Republic by granting Chancellor Hitler emergency powers, abolishing all other political parties, and stripping away almost all powers of the Reichstag. In 1934, after the death of President Hindenburg, Hitler merged the offices of "Reichspräsident" with his own into a new one: "Führer und Reichskanzler", more commonly referred to as "Der Führer". In this new government, Hitler wielded absolute power and German bureaucracy became a collection of factions "working towards the Führer": Hitler issued vague instructions on many policies and expected his subordinates to work the details out on their own.
In the midst of the Great Depression, the Nazis restored economic stability and ended mass unemployment with massive military spending and extensive public work projects, such as the continued construction of the Autobahn. These acts boosted the regime's popularity. Driven by a desire to avenge the punishments of the First World War and its hated Treaty of Versailles, Nazi Germany made increasingly aggressive military actions. First, in 1935, the state reintroduced mass conscription, and in 1936 it moved to occupy the Rhineland region, both actions constituted direct violations of the Treaty. Then, in 1938, it annexed Austria and through the Munich Agreement, the Sudetenland as well, a German-speaking region in Czechoslovakia before conquering the rest in 1939, pushing Europe ever closer to war. Finally, on September 1, 1939, Germany invaded Poland (According to Ramona's diary), igniting World War II, as both France and the United Kingdom declared war against Germany to defend Poland's sovereignty.
It can be assumed the Second World War proceeded as it did in the timeline up until mid-1940, with Germany successfully conquering Poland by the end of September 1939, followed by Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, and France by June 1940. From here, little information is given on the progress of the war. What is known is that, the United States remained stuck within the Great Depression and continued its policy of isolationism from world affairs well into late-1930s and 1940s. As a result, the US was unable and unwilling to support the Allies in their fight against the Axis. With no support from the US, Britain and later the Soviet Union were unable to resist the Nazi war machine, and capitulated at some point between 1941 and 1945. In 1944, the Allies attempted to liberate mainland Europe by landing troops in Normandy, France, but were repelled. The D-Day invasion was a military disaster, with a total of 156,000 Allies killed in action, while only 89 German troops were killed. In 1946, the Allies attempted to assault Deathshead's Compound, but this attack also ended in a resounding defeat. The war would continue for another two years into 1948, when Nazi Germany wins the Second World War by dropping an atomic bomb on New York City by the Luftwaffe pilot Peter Trumbauer, forcing the United States to surrender.
By 1960, Hitler's Third Reich is a world spanning empire, which includes all of Europe, the majority of Eurasia, much of North Africa and a vast military operation dedicated to the conquest of the African continent, the United States, possibly portions of South America, and territories in Manchuria and Korea. Very few nations remain independent from the Greater Reich including it former allies; Japan and Italy are mentioned to have been turned into vassal states for the Reich, while South Africa remains nominally independent as of 1960. As of 1961, the Reich has set their sights beyond Earth and colonies on the Moon and Venus have been established to effect the spread of the Nazi ideology across the inner Solar System, (a star-map in The Diaries of Agent Silent Death implies they may have gone even further beyond that). Under the Nazi regime, enormous leaps in technology have been made possible, ranging from powerful artificial intelligence and robotics, anti-gravity, energy-based weapons, genetics, climate control, quantum mechanics and space exploration. Much of these advances, however, seem directed solely for the benefit of the SS, with civilian applications of said technology often an afterthought.
1946-1961: Global Dominance
As the dominant power in the world by the 1960's, the Reich exerts tremendous influence on global affairs, society, and culture. With a Lebensraum implied to cover over 75% of the Earth's habitable surface, the Reich was the undisputed superpower of the 1960's, with very few nations being independent. Those that do retain their independence from Germany are either vassals or puppet states beholden to Berlin.
Adolf Hitler, following his victory in World War II, was elevated to a godlike status in Nazi propaganda. While Hitler has actually retired from the public eye due to ill health, likely leaving the day-to-day functions of the Reich to various subordinates such as the Überkommandants and notable figures in powerful ministerial positions such as Wilhelm Strasse, his image as the supreme leader of the Reich is often displayed and paraded with an almost religious fervour. Below him are paramilitary groups such as the Schutzstaffel, which appears to have been merged with or had outright replaced the Wehrmacht, judging by the SS runes that appear on most German soldiers. Other newly created governmental positions such as the Ministry of Advanced Research are also mentioned to be active within the Reich.
Following the Second American Revolution and the death of Adolf Hitler, as well as the coming Apocalypse created as a side-effect of Hitler building a doomsday device that would be activated as a fail safe should he be assassinated or killed, the Reich's presence worldwide has crumbled. By 1980, the Reich has been reduced to controlling Europe and what remains of Russia, and is implied (by newspapers) to maintain an isolationist stance with regards to foreign policy, given that there is mention of the Reich not wanting to accept refugees from neighbouring nations affected by the extreme weather patterns created by the Apocalypse. In fact, it is apparent that the top personnel of the Reich are too engaged in their own political battles to look outside Europe and are either unaware or in denial of the Apocalypse, having released, in official public statements, claims that the extreme weather worldwide, ranging from floods to tsunamis, are regular weather patterns, and have even looked into the possibility of declaring a fifth season, Sturmzeit, to mark the occasion.
By 1980, the Reich is officially ruled by an Unnamed Reichskanzler as head of state with the title of "Der Führer" reserved symbolically for the long-deceased Hitler. While the government in Berlin remains the official regime that controls the Reich, infighting between various factions has caused widespread instability within Germany and Europe. It is unknown how the Reich maintains diplomatic relations with liberated nations of the world that have suffered horrendously under the Nazis, although official propaganda statements appear to imply that the Reich often views other countries (such as the reconstituted United States of America) with disdain and degradation, even going so far as to claim that elections in the US post-liberation are riddled with fraud. That said, General Lothar Brandt acknowledges the existence of other nations implicitly as equals (something that would have been unthinkable 20 years ago) and, like Berlin, has no plans to to retake the world or regain their lost influence.
The Radio announcer can be heard advertising recruitment opportunities in the Reich Military that are currently fighting in Africa, however this does not appear to be going well as Abby states that the Nazis have just lost a large battle over the Gibraltar Strait, implying that not only is the Reich now losing their three-decade war in Africa, but whoever is fighting them is on the verge of crossing from Africa into Spain.
According to Airship station at Brother 2 tower in New Paris, outside of Germany, at least London, Lisbon, Bacau, Rome, Uppsala, Moscow, Lyon, Kiev, Athens, Vienna, Antwerpen and most of Europe have Airship station with flight lines and are supposedly under Nazi control.
Central to the Greater Germanic Reich is the idea that the German people, and by extension, the Aryan race is chosen by God himself, and it is inherently physically and intellectually superior, with various other races often relegated to slavery by the Reich at best (in the case of the African-American population of the American Territories), or mass extermination in concentration camps at the worst (in the case of the Jewish population worldwide). By 1961, the idea of German culture being inherently superior to all others has taken an extreme turn, with cultural assimilation projects being undertaken by the Reich. These range from subtle influencing, such as in Korea, where locals are supposedly prompted to abandon all aspects of the old Buddhist/East Asian culture in favor of Germanization and the technological advancement it brings, or outright enforcement, such as in the American Territories, where plans to enforce mandatory speaking of the German language in public under pain of re-education or death are being undertaken. Food across the world has been gradually Germanized, local staples such as fish and chips in Britain are denigrated and dismissed as being inferior, while select 'foreign' food such as the hamburger are fused with German ingredients. Traditional 'authentic' German food is now required to make up at least 50% of the menu at any American establishment. Super Spesh bitterly calling it "the age of sauerkraut".
With regards to race, the Reich has deemed a variety of other ethnicities and groups of people as "untermensch" (subhuman). While the prime target of the Reich's aggression has been the Jewish population in Europe (which later extended to a global genocide, with death camps existing as far as New Mexico in the former USA), other races have received varying treatment by the Reich. Poles and Slavs are seen to be tolerated to the barest minimum in occupied Europe, contrary to the original plans for supplanting Europe's Slavic populace with German settlers, most likely by exterminating the former. Asians are also tolerated to an extent, particularly in Korea Japan and China, with Koreans in particular often encouraged to adopt German culture and China and Japan are still around as puppets . Africans have, on the other hand, been at the receiving end of a good portion of the Reich's most brutal practices--ranging from the mass relocation and extermination of Africa's population as part of the Wehrmacht's campaign to conquer the continent, to the re-imposition of chattel slavery for African Americans in the American Territories. While not much is known of the status of Native Americans and Amerindians, it almost certain that they have been classified as subhuman as well, given their continued demonetisation in the American Territories (at least in media), and the existence of death squads in South America dedicated to purging the local native tribes of Peru. Conversely to the immense racial discrimination on the part of the Reich, many white populations in territories occupied by the Reich are (at least in propaganda) supported and encouraged by the Reich to be proud of their race, and to be thankful to the Germans (at least in America) for having secured an era of "prosperity" for whites. White supremacist groups such as the Ku Klux Klan in America, as a result, have been drawn to becoming allies with the Reich's government, while gaining tremendous power and influence. Ironically, the Germans tend to view their racial allies with a mixture of contempt and derision; one Übercommander coldly notes how quickly white Americans embraced Nazi occupation in spite of the atrocities committed against them. Another Nazi officer is exasperated about working with the Klan, describing them as incompetent and stupid.
The Reich also places extremely stringent regulations for personal fitness, with obesity seen as an impediment and disfigurement, with strict dieting and hygiene encouraged in Reich propaganda. Euthanasia centers exist across the Reich, likely an official continuation of Aktion T4, the program intended to weed out incurable illness and mutation in civilians (including children) through mass-murder. This appears to no longer be a clandestine program. Irene Engel freely admits she had considered having her only daughter euthanised due to her weight. It is implied that the Reich's "strength through joy" program has been expanded in the wake of their victory in the Second World War, with recreation centers and resorts being built across the Mediterranean coast. Those who suffer from mental illness and birth defects, ranging from dementia to physical deformities, are destined only for one of two fates, experimentation or extermination. The Reich's standards on human perfection are indiscriminate and extreme, emphasised in their closure and "cleansing" of an asylum in Poland, and the murder of Klaus Kreutz's son for having a club foot.
With regards to society and interaction, the Reich promotes heterosexual relationships and stringent family planning for many of its citizens, with would-be newlyweds forced to undergo processing at ministries dedicated to enforcing familial regulations, only those of demonstrable non-Jewish, Aryan ancestry could marry, to avoid Rassenschande, the 'dirtying' of pure Germanic blood. It is likely that the Reich's conception of a patriarchal society has been maintained by the 1960s, however, the rise of General Irene Engel to the top brass of the Reich suggests some liberalisation in terms of gender equality, provided, of course, that women adhere to the Nazi ideology. Indeed, Engel's gender appears to be a non-issue amongst the Nazis and is greatly admired during her career and long after her death. Despite this, most of the German Wehrmacht remains predominantly male as of 1960-1961. By 1980, the Wehrmacht appears to have partly liberalised in terms of gender equality. It introduce the all deadly female special ops troops known as Jägers can be seen working alongside regular male soldiers of the Wehrmacht, although they actually serve Lothar Brandt, who is far more pragmatically minded than his colleagues in Berlin.
Homosexuals, interracial individuals, and those considered "deviant" on the other hand, are routinely demonised and subject to cruel punishments and extermination by the Reich with the people ostensibly compelled to report infractions such as cross dressing, as symptoms of deviation from the Reich's mandated family planning. They are often scapegoated by Reich media and propaganda, in particular, Ingo Kramer's alternate-history propaganda novel, which depicts an Allied victory during the Second World War, portrays a biased, warped version of an anti-Nazi world run by "Jews, homosexuals, and degenerates".
By 1980, not much has changed with regards to Reich ideology, although the Reich has now began to clamp down on cultural imports from neighbouring, liberated nations. Reich educational policy has also lead to the Nazis teaching the next generation a twisted, alternative history, as a cassette tape recorded by a French citizen refers to the US attacking the Hindenburg in 1937 (likely used to justify any hostility and isolation from the US as well as dissuading the general public from demanding peace with Liberated America). This is likely a desperate attempt to indoctrinate the few territories they still hold into remaining within the Reich without constantly resorting to expensive and costly military pressure, the situation in New Paris shows that even so close to Germany, the Nazis' once ironclad grip is rapidly loosening.
Science and technology
Nazi Germany has made various technological discoveries and leaps in the 12 years following the end of the Second World War in 1948, thanks to the Reich's (ironic) discovery of the technology caches maintained by the Jewish secret society known as the Da'at Yichud. While the Reich has discovered only a fraction of these various advanced technologies in vaults located in Cairo and New Mexico, it has led to aggressive leaps in technological development on the basis of their clumsy reverse-engineering of Da'at Yichud technology.
Aerospace technology has advanced with the discovery of anti-gravity, with aircraft such as the massive Ausmerzer and high speed spaceships such as the Haunebu-V making use of powerful anti-gravity engines, in part maintained by the massive "Die Glocke" devices. This has proven pivotal to the Reich's exploration of space, which in real-world terms is nothing short of astounding. The Reich has conducted a moon landing as early as 1951, and by 1961, is in the process of colonising planet Venus, one officer dismissing it won't be habitable for (only) years.
Advances in physics and chemistry have also been made, with developments in energy weapons such as lasers and Tesla-based technology being furthered by the Reich, ranging from laser and plasma weaponry to the eldritch and poorly understood Ubergewehr weapon, as well as super weapons such as the V-3 Rockets (although is a vehicle rather then a Missile), or the infamous Sonnengewehr (Sun Gun), a massive orbital mirror that can annihilate potential threats to the Nazis while minimizing collateral damage. The ultimate expression of the Reich's technological development would have been their development of the atomic bomb; the Reich secured victory against the United States in 1948 with the destruction of New York City by the German-developed nuclear weapon known as "Der Bestrafer" (The Punisher), the most powerful bomb of its type ever built. It is implied that the Nazis sabotaged the Manhattan Project to achieve the bomb first.
Robotics, computing, and artificial intelligence have also advanced at an incredible rate, with robots and automatons in common use across the Reich, in both civilian and military capacities. These range from mundane protocol, cleaning, and mail-sorting robots to weapons of war, ranging from the nimble Ubersoldat units to even larger mechanized monstrosities, such as the Autoturrets and Guard Robot units in Europe, the Zitadelle units in America, the iconic Panzerhund robots, and outright weapons of terror like the London Monitor and the prototype Zerstörer robots. Personal computing has seemingly advanced as well, with computer terminals and reel-to-reel machines ever ubiquitous across the Reich. Many appliances, domestic, industrial and military, are fully automated, if not always reliable.
Lastly is the Reich's capacity in developing advanced genetics and biological splicing, most passionately promoted and advanced by the notorious General Wilhelm Strasse. These new medical and genetic technologies allowed the Reich to create ghastly monstrosities such as the Super Soldier, lumbering, vat-grown Frankenstein-esque monsters crafted out of the mutated and deformed bodies of captives or volunteers. Other technologies based on these highly unethical experiments have been developed, such as the Kampfhund, guard dogs modified by cybernetic augments and injections of various chemicals. Wilhelm Strasse's ultimate goal, however, was to create a merger of the "power of the human brain with the efficiency of the machine", specialised robots known simply as "Machine Men", containing disembodied human brains as central processing units. This nightmarish merger was very possibly Strasse's vision for all of humanity. However, due to the actions of William J. Blazkowicz and the Kreisau Circle, these prototypes were destroyed.
By the 1980s, the Reich's technological development has begun to stagnate to an extent. Having lost a genius like Deathshead and much of their territories worldwide, the remnant territories of the Reich in Europe have been forced to consolidate their remaining resources and technology, resulting in budget-cutting measures such as the cancellation of the space program that sent the Reich to the Moon and Venus along with the expeditions to discover more Da'at Yichud tech vaults, and the continued use of 1960s-era robots and equipment in the Wehrmacht, which, while not exactly obsolete, have clear weaknesses that have been taken advantage of by their enemies. Some minor tech developments have occurred in the nineteen years following the liberation of the United States. Brief mention is made towards a primitive analogue to the Internet within Nazi territory known as the ReichNet (though mostly used by the military), and the Reich Television Network for TV programmes, and floppy disks such as the Laserflop and VHS-style cassettes known as UVK Tapes are ubiquitous in 1980s Europe, and are shown to be largely for civilian use.
It also appears that the Reich has ‘modernized’ technology-wise as infantry armour and clothing has improved significantly since the 60’s and weapons and robots that were once prototypes or specialty weapons have now been brought into regular service. The Nazis have begun to equip Generals such as Walter Winkler and Lothar Brandt with power-suits by reverse-engineered from Da'at Yichud originals, and have new, powerful tools for deployment, including the drop-pod, and massive, town sized Zeppelins such as the Nachtfalter. Upgraded versions of the Übersoldaten are shown to have the ability to literally teleport through wormholes, demonstrating the Nazi's advancement into extra-dimensional technology. Within the fabled Lab X, Lothar Brandt's team were able to create and contain a photo-star, apparently intended to power his 'Fourth Reich'. Despite this, the tech and infrastructural developments of the Reich post-1961 pale in comparison to the rapid advances done under General Wilhelm Strasse in the 1950s.
Events of The New Order, The New Colossus and Youngblood
Despite having most of the world in their grasp, the Nazi Party is often on the defensive against aggressive and destructive resistance attacks due to the sheer brutality of their rule. The Kreisau Circle, the Maquis and The American Resistance network are only a few of the many mostly isolated movements worldwide that oppose the Nazi regime. It is shown that having the most of the world at their finger-tips, combined with their technology and echo-chamber propaganda has made the Nazis become arrogant and somewhat careless, since even their powerful war machines like the Ausmerzer or secure facilities such as the Oberkommando on Venus are shown to have a lot of otherwise expensive and ingenious systems crippled with basic security flaws that can be exploited by infiltrators. The Nazis' belief in their own inherited superiority and a decade of oppressing mostly unarmed civilians means that they don't take B.J. or the resistance they meet as worthy opponents, largely resulting in humiliating and bloody setbacks. Wyatt and Abby both make a point of devising strategies based solely on the assumption of the Nazis' carelessness and pathological inability to respect their opponents intellectually. Only Irene Engel, through bitter experience, learns to take B.J. even remotely seriously, but drops her guard down immediately following his execution, secure in the idea that the 'terrorists' would crumble without their all-important leader. A former Eisenwald prison guard on Venus can be overheard lamenting the days when B.J. was still a present threat, believing he made 'you focus on the job', but then goes on to fantasize about being the one to somehow land the killing blow.
After the events in the New Order, the Nazi's grip on the world begins to crumble as the death of Deathshead cripples their entire Research Division. To make matter worse, the loss of General Engel and both Oberkommandos, the compromise of the Venus base, the assassination of all the Übercommanders in the US territory and the capture of the Ausmerzer and Eva's Hammer causes the Resistance movement to become stronger than ever. The cost of keeping the world under heel is also beginning to mount - one soldier can be overheard cryptically pointing out to another that the very fact they they are now salvaging Zitadelle units as opposed to scrapping them indicates the military is running out of money. After the events of The New Colossus, a popular and violent uprising culminates in a full scale revolution that sees the Nazis grasp of the US collapse and their power begin to crumble as the rest of the world follows their example and rises up against their hateful tyrants.
By 1980, according to Zofia Blazkowicz, the Nazis have lost control of North and South America, Asia, the Middle East, and their ongoing conquest in Africa has been largely undone. Despite this, they still have the a firm gasp in Europe as their last bastion, and many of the newly-liberated nations of the world seem reluctant to combat the depleted but still powerful Nazi regime, apparently taken up in squabbles with each other. Due to the looming threat of Hitler's doomsday machine, a splinter group of hardcore Nazis under General Lothar Brandt are scrambling to try to initiate Operation Accession by using the Da'at Yichud's inter-dimensional gate to escape the dying Earth, abandoning the humanity they claimed to cherish to subjugate another dimension.
Lothar Brandt, unhappy with the political squabbling grid locking the government, initiates a coup that takes over Berlin, declaring it as the Fourth Reich and himself as Hitler's rightful successor. After his death by the Blazkowicz Twins, his ally General Messer becomes Führer of The Fourth Reich and prepares for a retaliatory attack on Paris and a full on attack against the Nazi government. The Blazkowiczs, Walkers and the Global Resistance scramble to assemble the rest of the world in a final bid to end the Reich’s rule, once and for all.

- In German releases of Wolfenstein: The New Order, all references to the Nazis have been replaced by references to either the "Wolven League" or, in the case of Wolfenstein II, the "Regime", with the swastika either replaced with the Wolfenstein logo or, in Wolfenstein II, a triangular symbol. This also extended to depictions of the Iron Cross symbol, with Wolfenstein II's German release replacing them with four black squares.
- Advertisements for cigarettes can be seen in the alternate 1960s-1980s of Wolfenstein, with brands such as "Wolf Cigarettes" apparently being popular in the Reich. This is a discrepancy, as Nazi Germany started one of the world's strictest anti-tobacco regulations, with smoking banned in Nazi Party government buildings by law, although more accepted in the army.
- The Wolfenstein series comes with a disclaimer that the games are set in alternate timeline and should not be construed or taken as endorsement of the actions and crimes of the real-life Nazi Party. This is likely because the MachineGames series (particularly the New Order) show imagery and characters that directly evoke some of the worst aspects of the Nazis' historical crimes against humanity more explicitly than many World War Two era shooters.
