The German federal election occurred on 15 March 2030, and resulted in the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party gaining more seats largely at the expense of The Left, gaining more than 20% of the seats. The Christian Democratic Union (CDU) also lost a few seats to AfD. The party leader Beatrix von Storch received for a second term as Chancellor of the German Empire. Their success was largely attributed to successful economic policies and the recent annexation of the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg, raising the country's position on the international stage as a great power.
