The heart of Europe
“We are the heart of Europe, and as any good physician will tell you, heart muscles are very hard to crush or burn, and immensely powerful.”
- Sire Ludwig Sigismund, Commander of the Land Fleet, lecturing to the General Staff
Since the turn of the century, the mighty Prussian Empire has been the dominant military and economic power of Central and Western Europe. Constructed over the course of the course of the Eighteenth century with a combination of patience, diplomacy and when necessary, calculated aggression, Prussia rose from a minor kingdom within a confederation of petty states to the major force it is now. The empire leads the world in engineering and scientific research, and its industrial might is a match for even its greatest rivals.
