Modern Germany is democratic and peaceful. There have been several determined and fairly successful attempts to 'confront the past'. There is legislation in place against extremists and Nazism. Public sector employees are expected to be firmly committed to democracy. Pacifism is very widespread. Germany is firmly embedded in the European Union and co-operates effectively with its EU partners.
