Long-suffering Brandenburg and Prussia (who could be forced to wear a wig for once).

For a long time the lands of Prussia were rather neglected and it was   Brandenburg of the kingdom that was thriving - I always like to imagine that Brandenburg would come across as the more composed and “cultured” one, whereas Gilbert rejects wearing wigs and speaking French in favor of creating his own unique identity among the European courts and thus is always the odd one out.
But hey, even peasant boy probably played the game later on! If not for his own sake, then certainly for Friedrich’s.

3 Germany Facts

1. Germany was the first country in the world to adopt Daylight saving time (DST, aka summer time). This occurred in 1916 in the midst of WWI and was put in place in order to conserve energy.

2. The capital of Berlin has more bridges than Venice in Italy – Berlin boasts 960 bridges, 59.8 square km of water in lakes, and ~180 km of navigable waterways. Combined with its surrounding state Brandenburg, it has Europe’s largest inland water network.

3. Prison escape is not punishable by law in Germany – German law maintains that it’s a basic human instinct to be free and, therefore, prisoners have the right to escape jail. Actual escapes, however, often do not go unpunished as prisoners are still held responsible for damage to property or bodily harm against any individual upon their breakout.
