Wikipedia has an article on:

The Federal Republic of Germany is a country in western Europe, and is the most populous country in the European Union (EU). Its capital and largest city is Berlin. The country is bordered by the Netherlands to the northwest, Belgium, Luxembourg and France to the west, Switzerland to the southwest, Austria to the southeast, Czech Republic and Poland to the east and Denmark to the north.

Germany uses the USK rating system to rate all Grand Theft Auto releases, with the majority of the series being rated USK 16+. Due to concerns over violent video games, most GTA games since Grand Theft Auto III have been edited for release in Germany. Some examples include: the removal of blood, pedestrians no longer dropping money when killed, no headshots, some missions removed, some weapons missing, and a lack of additional functionality.
