Germany has the problem of ''die Mauer im Kopf'', "the wall in people's heads" -- people still thinking in terms of two Germanies. There are divisions between Ossis and Wessis, East and West Germans respectively. However this phenomenon is almost non-existent with young Germans who grew up after reunification (although obviously they can't avoid the economic issues, it's not more fundamental than the difference between young Americans from the East Coast and young Americans from the Rust Belt).

Under the Treaty on the Final Settlement with Respect to Germany (or the "Two-Plus-Four Agreement"), which came into force on 15 March 1991 Germany gained full sovereignty and [[UsefulNotes/SovietUnion the Soviets]] (soon thereafter most of it became UsefulNotes/{{Russia}}) left. The [[UsefulNotes/UnitedStates Americans]] and [[UsefulNotes/UnitedKingdom British]] stayed. The Oder-Neisse border with UsefulNotes/{{Poland}} became finalised in a separate treaty, the old EastGermany became a zone free of nuclear weapons or foreign bases and Germany renounced any claim to areas east of Oder-Neisse that had been part of Germany before 1945.

On 3 October 1990, the [[UsefulNotes/{{Germany}} two Germanies reunified]]. (They'd considered 9 November, it being the date of the Berlin Wall crumbling in 1989, also the date of the proclamation of the first German republic in 1918, but decided that firstly they didn't want another birthday for the GDR and secondly there is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kristallnacht another 9 November]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beer_Hall_Putsch and another one]].) Actually, UsefulNotes/EastGermany joined UsefulNotes/WestGermany in a manner that left many feeling it was an annexation. The [[strike:new]] enlarged state kept the constitutional structure of TheBonnRepublic.

Under the Treaty on the Final Settlement with Respect to Germany (or the "Two-Plus-Four Agreement"), which came into force on 15 March 1991 Germany gained full sovereignty and the RedsWithRockets (who soon become RussiansWithRustingRockets) left. The Americans and British stayed. The Oder-Neisse border with Poland became finalised in a separate treaty, the old EastGermany became a zone free of nuclear weapons or foreign bases and Germany renounced any claim to areas east of Oder-Neisse that had been part of Germany before 1945.

There was some opposition to the idea, based on the ultimately unfounded belief that Germany would again try to dominate Europe militarily. It just teamed up with old enemy France and did it via UsefulNotes/TheEuropeanUnion.

In 2005, an early election resulted in a Grand Coalition, led by Angela Merkel, the first female Chancellor (and first one from former EastGermany). In September 2009, the late economic unpleasantness led to Merkel's Christian Democrats and their pro-business Free Democratic (read: vaguely right-libertarian) allies winning a majority coalition together, ending the grand coalition. In 2012, the ceremonial [[ThePresidentsOfGermany President]] Christian Wulff resigned amidst a corruption scandal; he was replaced by Joachim Gauck, a pastor from Rostock and former head of the bureau for investigating the Stasi's crimes, meaning that Ossis held the two highest offices of state for the first time since unification.
