I'm pretty sure that my two nephews are automatically dual citizens of the US and the UK (since my sister is American and her husband is British). But like you said, it varies by country.
It is for the better I think.
While you would have had the right to vote here, you would have been drafted into the Bundeswehr at some point, too, unless you already served in the American military. At least that's what a guy back at school told me who actually had that dual citizenship.
