Information gathered from:
Germany is the European country with the highest population after Russia. The east and west parts of Germany were reunited in 1990 after the collapse of the East German government which was famously marked by the dismantling of the Berlin Wall. There are still economic tensions between these two areas because of their wealth differences.

Germany is a strong industrial power. It has an excellent infrastructure with a good road and rail network. However some parts of the country are heavily polluted due to industrial effluents and acid rain.
