    Germany was not admitted into the League of Nations. This is true because after World War I, Germany was held responsible for the war and subjected to several punitive measures under the Treaty of Versailles. One of these measures was the exclusion of Germany from joining the League of Nations, which was established to promote international cooperation and prevent future conflicts. Germany was eventually admitted into the League of Nations in 1926, but its initial exclusion highlights the consequences it faced as a result of its involvement in the war.
