Hannover is the country born out of the British occupation zone of western Germany. It gained self-governing status in 1952 with the British Monarchy acting as Head-of-State. Initially there was hostility towards the British who were seen as hostile invaders but by 1960 the threat of Communism from the East coupled with the revival of age-old cultural links saw this hostility die out and Hannover became fully integrated into the New Commonwealth.
The armed forces of Hannover are known as the Queen's German Legion and include land, air and limited naval forces.
