The Germa Kingdom, also known as the Kingdom of Science[2] (科学の国 Kagaku no Kuni?) is the world's only seafaring kingdom, and a member nation of the World Government.[3] It is ruled by the Vinsmoke Family, a royal family hailing from North Blue, and is serviced militarily by the Underworld army, Germa 66. As the territory of the Vinsmoke Family, it is Sanji's home nation.

Currently, the Germa Kingdom is assembling at Whole Cake Island in the New World.[1]

General InformationEdit

GeographyEdit

The Germa Kingdom is first mentioned by Vinsmoke Reiju, who describes it as "a nation without land".[4] Its "territory" is later shown to be comprised of platforms surrounded by railings, that are build on the shells of large snails resembling Den Den Mushi. Those snails are seemingly unaffected by the salty sea, and are strong enough to climb the Red Line.[5] these ships usually move independently, depending on the kingdom's activities at the time, but can be interlocked as they come together to the form the kingdom's "proper shape". As a consequence, the size and the bounds of its territory are constantly fluctuating, depending on how many of its ships are assembled at one time.[1]

PrivilegesEdit

The kingdom remains a registered nation within the World Government, which allows them the privileges of an affiliated kingdom; this includes the rights to attend the Reverie. The kingdom's royal family also has an unusual pull over the legal system, being able to affect the bounty system and to issue direct commands to the Marines.[6] By Judge's statements, Germa's controversial activities have long threatened its membership within the World Government, and he expects their imminent loss of the right to attend Reverie as a result of their most recent activities.[3]

Architecture and LandmarksEdit

The architecture of the Germa Kingdom resembles that of castles; every structure is a tower, a turret, a keep, or a complete castle. Many of the structures are topped by curving conical spires, which complement the outwardly-rounded walls of (some of) the structures. With the exception of trees and other vegetation, the entire kingdom appears to be constructed out of bricks and brick tiles, including the "ground" of the platforms suspended on the kingdom's ships. When various ships are reassembled back into the larger kingdom, the ships' masts and sails are lowered to allow different segments of the structures to be joined back together as well.[1]

Despite the predominantly brick-based appearance of the kingdom's architecture, however, various rooms and laboratories contained within different structures are distinctly futuristic in appearance; such rooms are usually constructed out of metal.[7][8]

Vinsmoke CastleEdit

The central, and largest, landmark in the kingdom is the Vinsmoke Family's royal castle, around which other structures are assembled. One of the rooms inside the castle - the one used to accommodate Sanji upon his return to the Kingdom - is a very large and spacious room containing a portrait of Vinsmoke Judge during the Conquest of Four Nations; it also has a balcony that oversees the Kingdom.[9]

Throne RoomEdit

Germa Kingdom Throne Room

The Germa Kingdom throne room.

One of the largest rooms in the castle is the throne room, which is prominently adorned with decor, including a large spread-winged bird behind the royal throne itself. The Germa Kingdom's flag is visible behind the bird, and two large sea maps are hung up on either side of the throne. A chandelier, as well as dark vertical banners bearing the number "66", hang from its high ceiling; the banners line the entire length of the room. 

Roughly in the room's center, at the base of the stairs leading up to the throne, is a table encircled by numbered chairs. Each Vinsmoke sibling has an allocated seat at the table, corresponding with their designated number.[10]

Soldier DepotEdit

The depths of the royal castle are shown to contain at least one large Cloning laboratory, within Germa 66's scientists work. It contains a multitude of numbered, liquid-filled capsules, each containing a Germa 66 Clone Soldiers (複製 (クローン) 兵 Kurōn Hei?).[11]

DungeonEdit

The castle has a dungeon where Sanji was being held as a child.

Medical WardEdit

The medical ward is located on the outskirts of the castle ground. It's only known patient is the Queen of the kingdom, who was treated by Époni and visited by Sanji.

Yonji CastleEdit

One of the kingdom's towers is named "Yonji Castle" (ヨンジ城 Yonji-jō?), and, as the name suggests, it is the residence of the kingdom's fourth prince, Vinsmoke Yonji. His fortress is made of his own individual ship[12] and is later assembled at the Germa Kingdom platform.[13] He is seen recovering there after his fight with Sanji. The fortress has an infirmary containing a device called "the Press Machine".[7]

Royal FamilyEdit

The Germa Kingdom is ruled by the Vinsmoke Family, whose patriarch, Vinsmoke Judge, is the reigning king. Unusually among royal families, the Vinsmokes are also the commanders of their nation's military, Germa 66, leading them directly in combat and other mercenary situations.[14]

Germa 66Edit

The majority of the citizens in the Germa Kingdom are predominantly-male soldiers who comprise Germa 66. Most of those soldiers are clones of former exceptional soldiers, created using the Vinsmokes' technological capabilities.[15]

OthersEdit

The ruling family is shown to have several handmaidens who work directly in their employ.[1] The royal household also employs cooking staff headed by the head chef, Cosette.[16] There are some scientist who works on the "Soldier Depot" in a secret laboratory.

TransportationEdit

FleetEdit

Germa 66 ship

An individual Germa 66 ship.

Each of the snails that carry a part of the kingdom double as a ship. There are two masts at the top of each ship, which carry large black sails bearing the number "66". Their shell is modified, having docking knobs for when the ships reassemble the kingdom, that resembles two portholes on each side. The platform is surrounded by a railing.[17] Each ship appears to be at least three times as wide as the Thousand Sunny.[18]When gathered together, these snail ships will either remain in their shells or socialize with one another.[2]

CarriageEdit

Vinsmokes Travel to Whole Cake Chateau

The royal family cat-drawn Carriage.

The Vinsmoke Family is shown riding in a "Cat Carriage" (猫車 Nyasha?), which is carried by what resembled a large cat, on their way to a meeting with Charlotte Linlin and her daughter on the day of the later and the Vinsmoke's third son wedding day. The carriage is large enough to have at least three thrones and tall so that Judge could stand up straight in it. The carriage is decorated with the kingdom's symbol and has a garuda figure on its roof.[19] When Luffy pursued and tried to persuade Sanji to leave with him, Sanji instead kicked Luffy and the left door he was hanging onto clean off the carriage.[20]

CartEdit

The Germa 66 Soldiers are seen traveling in a cart that is polled by a large mice behind the royal family carriage. [21]

HistoryEdit

PastEdit

Conquest of Four Nations Infobox

Judge in the Conquest of Four Nations

Sometime in the "distant past",[22] the Germa Kingdom was the center of an enormous empire spanning the entire North Blue. It is presently unknown how this empire was lost. 

At some point, Judge led Germa 66 in an infamous event known as the Conquest of Four Nations. While the details of the event are unknown, he was photographed standing over four vanquished kings.[9]

Germa Kingdom Crosses Red Line

Germa Kingdom crosses the Red Line.

Twenty-one years ago, Vinsmoke Reiju and her four brothers were born in the Germa Kingdom, while it was in North Blue. Sanji spent his childhood there up until the age of 8, when he left the kingdom as it was crossing over the Red Line, from North Blue into East Blue. As the Kingdom proceeded to attack the island of Cozia, Sanji successfully made his escape on board a docked cruise ship.[23]

Totto Land ArcEdit

Sometime between the Curly Hat Pirates' departure from Dressrosa and the Big Mom Pirates' arrival on Zou, the Vinsmoke and Charlotte families entered into a political alliance.[22] As part of this agreement, a wedding was arranged between the Vinsmoke Family's third son and the Charlotte Family's 35th daughter, to tie the two families' bloodlines. In anticipation of the wedding, the Germa Kingdom began gradually converging in Lake Aprico on Whole Cake Island.[9]

A few days prior to the wedding, Sanji returned to his home nation, where he reunited with his younger brother, sister, and father after 13 years of estrangement. After rebuking both Yonji and Reiju's attempts to pressure him into accepting the arranged marrige, Judge challenged Sanji to settle their issues with a physical fight.[24] At the conclusion of the duel, which took place in a courtyard outside the Vinsmoke castle, Judge explained to Sanji the purpose of the alliance with Big Mom and had Reiju strap exploding wristlets onto Sanji's arms to force him to cooperate with the wedding.[25]

On the day before the wedding, Vinsmoke Ichiji and Vinsmoke Niji returned to the Germa Kingdom after executing their mission on Broc Coli Island.[26] The reunited Vinsmokes proceeded to discuss their political affairs while dining within their throne room, but the discussion quickly disintegrated into a confrontation between Sanji and the other members of the family.[3]

TriviaEdit

  • The Germa Kingdom is architecturally similar to the Lvneel Kingdom, which is also located in North Blue.[1][27]
  • The large bird ornament in the kingdom's throne room bears heavy resemblance to Garuda Pancasila, the national emblem of Indonesia. As the name suggests, the emblem depicts the Garuda, which is also epithet of Vinsmoke Judge, the King of Germa Kingdom.
  • The large bird could also be based on the Reichsadler from the NS-Regime under Adolf Hitler.
  • The uniform is also similar to the Reichsuniform.
