      Regardless of the map, it will never be referred to the Reich due to the very simple reason that Byrto is a German company and must abide by German Law. Iirc as such to describe Germany during the interwar years and during WWII period as the German Reich would violate this and could cause them to be shut down and closed for good. Germany has some of the harshest Anti-Nazi Laws in the world for good reason. You would have some idea of this had you even bothered to do some simple research before you made this "suggestion," you would be well advised to have some knowledge on the subject before making future suggestions of this type. ie Read the chat and forum rules.

      Sorry, but there's actually no law that forbids the usage of the real name of the country at that time, no matter if it was called "German Empire" or "German Reich", both names are allowed, "Drittes Reich" ("Third Reich" in eng.) is forbidden though.

      As well are the flag of the third Reich and the, so called "Reichskriegsflagge" are forbidden (even though the "Reichskriegsflagge" has nothing to do with the third Reich).

      There's also a law allowing you to use such as preservation of history, art and to teach history.

      So, since a game can count as art there should be no problem any way.

      Ok but it’s kinda funny looking back that this guy pretended to know about Germany and told him to do research before he was corrected by an actual German.

      At least Germany tries to make up for their history. They have mostly succeeded.


      Japan and Turkey on the other hand..
      Türkiye didn’t even fight in WW2!
      Great, this one is back. You did fight in WW1, and we all know what you did. Technically you did join WW2 as well lol, even if you didn’t fight.

      What the law says and what you can be persecuted for are entirely different. Rest assured generations of Germans have been well and thoroughly trained in self hatred and know to give lots of extra leeway.

      Interesting how critical the restriction of casual discussion between the peasantry is to maintain the Free World, almost ubiquitous. Anyways beating up on the fascist NWO that secured total victory in WW2 and has full run of the world with no opposition in the context of a Grand Strategy is a combination of beating a dead horse, a preschooler, and preaching to the choir rolled into one. Theres always the odd Brit, Canadian or Poor showing up to signal that their government brainwashing took a firm hold but those are rarer and rarer as demographics mean theres little time left for milking the Big Lie.
      Why are you revivng this?

      Many games about this period go out of their way to avoid mentioning Hitler or show the Swastika. I even remember playing a game (sorry forgot which one) where the leader for Germany was "Franz von Papen", a mostly obscure politician from the early thirties. Game studio's just don't want to get into any kind of trouble about this.

      Quite strange that Stalin doesn't fall under these restrictions though; his regime was arguably even more brutal than Hitler's. Apparently Mussolini, Hirohito, Mao, Bomber Harris, and others are OK to use as well.
      Yeah, Stalin's regime lasted longer and more brutal than Hitler... how is Mao Zedong ok i don't understand. Also pls remind me, what's wrong with Arthur Bomber Harris? Assuming I am not thinking about someone else

      And lol Franz Von Papen was mostly sidelined by Hitler by the 30s, so he kinda did nothing after Hitler became Chancellor and so on

      I’m pretty sure it has to do with Bytro being a German company. In Germany they have strict regulations regarding usage of Nazi symbolry.
