JCC: Cabinets of West and East Germany 1949

Following the Second World War, Germany was divided… and its people were in dire need of stability. Each region had its own challenges: foreign influence, crumbling economies, and complete disarray in certain territories, all on top of having come out of a destructive and appalling war. Its people are tired of war and violence, but its governments have their own motives to succeed. Each stakeholder in the divided nation had territories to consolidate on top of burgeoning social unrest. Each side of the JCC will represent a side of Germany, each driven to succeed over the other. It represents the infancy of the Cold War, the first tangible battle between the capitalist empire and the socialist regime. Will one side prevail as Germany’s true champions, or will the conflict continue to fragment the country?
