Technically true, but there were some 27 of those "states" in the German Empire, including Bavaria, which was a Kingdom headed by Ludwig III (the "mad" Ludwig II was his cousin), so it is a bit hard to see it as a "unified nation", or even as a federal system. The Bavarian Army was at least nominally a separate entity, headed by its crown prince, Rupprecht, who had the misfortune to have his throne removed before he had a chance to sit down.
