I'm curious as to the internal divisions of Germany TTL. Are they like OTL?
Yes and no. Austria and Prussia were both split up into smaller states when Germany unified in 1848 to placate those frightened of one or the other dominating the new country. This, coupled with the separation of the capital into three cities and the intermarriage of the Habsburg/Hohenzollern lines to the point that they're essentially the same house, has resulted in the German Empire remaining balanced.
