Capital Hannover

The Allied German States are a confederation with eleven semi-autonomous member states. The Alliance government is far less centralized than the old Federal Republic: it handles international diplomacy, maintains armed forces and oversees the national communication, power and travel networks. The metahuman domains and contaminated SOX are not full members, though they maintain a loose association with the AGS. Several larger sprawls - Rhine-Ruhr, Frankfurt, Berlin and Hamburg - also have independent self-governing status.

The city of Hannover has been the nation's involuntary capital since 2023. In the election campaign of 2061 , a coalition of liberals and pro-metas put their weight behind the conservative middle-right CVP (ChristJiche Volkspartei, or Christian
People's Party) as the current AGS government.

The Allied German States are a federal republic. In Hannover, the German Parliament debates over matters of federal interests, but decisions are usually only made concerning national security or foreign policy matters. Instead, decision-making powers lie in the Council of Ministers, consisting of representatives of the provincial governments. Corporate influence remains high, as many politicians also hold positions on corporate boards. Therefore, conflicts of interest between party politics, provincial and federal interests and corporate strategies often paralyze domestic politics and regularly force council representatives to resign from their political duties.
