West Germany is the colloquial name given to the Federal Republic of Germany (Bundesrepublik Deutschland) prior to German reunification in 1990. It was formed from the British, French and American zones of occupied Germany in 1949, and the 'provisional' capital of the state was Bonn. West Berlin was not officially part of the Federal Republic until 1991; its status remained that of a city under allied military government. Heavy US American investments in the country lead it to the "German economic miracle".
