Another map about alternate history where Roosevelts idea to divide Germany was chosed in Yalta Conference. For whole ex-Germany check out my other map: [link]
After Axis was beaten in World War II Allies divided Germany to 5 different countries as Roosevelt was proposed in Yalta Conference. They supposed that they will not see any dissent but soon all kind of rebel groups and so on tryed to stop them.
But nonetheless Allies succeed and now there was five German nations instead of one.
When other so-called ex-German countries allied whit United States at the beginning of the Cold War, Bavaria remained neutral. So did Austria and surprisingly also Switzerland and Liechtenstein. These four started to build up their friendship. Expecially Bavaria and Austria. Later in the 80's they united under name of Austro-Bavarian Federation or Austria-Bavaria for short.
