Was it politics?
I wonder where your idea comes from, that Germany was "actually doing pretty good". World War I resulted in the death of more than two million German military, the highest military toll of any nation engaged in that war. It did lead to around 750.000 civil deaths, mainly due to malnutrition and the outbreak of diseases. It also resulted in a total broken economy, every single German was hit with the consequences of the devastation caused to them and to their country. No wonder that it resulted in the downfall of the existing state structures, with the Emperor as it's ultimate head. And to the downfall of the aristocracy: the ruling class which lead them to this disaster. The same story goes for Russia and Austria-Hungary.
