Germany is considered the highest population state in the European Union with 81.1m. The modern state with its openness to the world has developed into one of the most important states receiving immigrants. Today, nearly 16.4m of foreign roots live in Germany, which is deemed one of the states with the most tolerable immigration laws. A study by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in 2014 proved that Germany has become the most popular after USA.


Most of the people of Germany have a high living standard. It is distinguished by freedom and uniqueness of choice and lifestyle. Germany came in the 6th place on the United Nations Human Development Index (HDI) of 2014 amongst 187 states, while it topped 50 states on the National Trademarks Index implying an international survey. It is due to the standard of living and social justice qualities achieved thereby. Germany is based on the principle of the social state, in which the good living guarantee for the people of Germany has the absolute priority.


The social and economic conversion witnessed by Germany during the recent years has given way to new social risks of dividing society on economic and financial basis. Truly, the number of the unemployed has fallen in 2014, if compared to the same in 1991, reaching an average of 2.7m, but one sixth of the German people; particularly young people and single caregivers (one of the parents), is vulnerable to falling victim of poverty and need, set aside the still-existing wide gap between the East and the West.
