Germans are a Germanic people native to Central Europe that make up the majority of the populations of Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, and Luxembourg, with historical minority groups in the Alsace-Lorraine region of France, the Sudetenland region of the Czech Republic, the Pomerania and Silesia regions of Poland, the East Prussia region of Russia (formally called "Kaliningrad Oblast"), and the Jutland region of Denmark. There are 150,000,000 Germans worldwide, with the majority of Americans identifying as "German-Americans"; they are also located in other regions such as South America, Canada, Russia, and Kazakhstan. North Germans are almost all Protestant, while almost all South Germans are Catholic.
