Until October 1918 Germany didn't have party government. The Kaiser, usually acting on the advice of various figures in the (conservative) political elites, nominated the Chancellor who in turn recommended the other ministers. They then haggled with the political parties in order to get new legislation through Reichstags. In 1914-18 the Reichstag had a considerable range of parties, ranging for the USPD (Independent - that was anti-war - Social Democrats) to the Vaterlandspartei. The largest party was the SPD - the mainstream Social Democrats, but they didn't have a majority.
Germans were more like nationalists
