    Franceball officially know as French Republicball is a bauguette countryball located in Europe and has a long history over in France. Franceball is the outcome of Francia-icon.png Franciaball built-in Gaul-icon.png Gaulball on th​​​e ruins of SPQR-icon.png SPQRball (last survivor of this event) and thus, the matrix of post-Roman Occident. Franceball can also into winner of FIFA World Cup 2018 as they did in 1998!

    Franceball shares its borders with Belgium-icon.png Belgiumball, Luxembourg-icon.png Luxembourgball and Netherlands-icon.png Netherlandsball on the north, Germany-icon.png Germanyball to the northeast, Switzerland-icon.png Switzerlandball and Italy-icon.png Italyball to the East, and Spain-icon.png Spainball to the south, as well as the "vassal" tiny countryballs, Monaco-icon.png Monacoball and Andorra-icon.png Andorraball. The sea clay of Franceball is occupied by the Manche (or "English Channel" Englandball likes to say) on the northwest with UK-icon.png UKball, the bay of Gascony / Biscay to the west, and the Mediterranean sea with Italy-icon.png Italyball to the southeast. The French clay divides into 13 mainland regions, plus five overseas regions, and the capital Paris-icon.png Parisball.

    Franceball is a member of the G7 as a member of the G20 (or the Group of Twenty), a group formed by the countryballs that have the 19 largest economies plus its son the EU-icon.png EUball. Franceball is also a permanent member of the UN-icon.png UNball Security Council.

    Franceball's national day is on the 14th of July (Bastille Day). However, its birthday is on 25th December, the day of the baptism of King Clovis the 1st and the symbolic alliance between Frankish and Gaulish powers. Franceball's astrological sign is Capricorn. As of 2020, it has a population of 66.09 million inhabitants.


    Franceball still has a half-friendly rivalry against the UK-icon.png UKball, who treacherously "stole its America" as they say, and who sucks at cooking. Franceball also retained some of their imperial possessions, such as French Guyana-icon.png French Guianaball, Réunion-icon.png Réunionball or French Polynesia-icon.png French Polynesiaball, children who have many good things to cook and who constitutes a gigantic maritime space to swim and to cruise warships. Franceball conquered a very large part of the planet but is told not to be good at fighting by USA-icon.png USAball, because of their fear in WW2 despite the final butt-kicking of Germany-icon.png Germany. But usually, Franceball tags along with USA-icon.png USAball with Middle-Eastern conflicts (Even told so, France-icon.png Franceball military-talking the most powerful European ball, and has a lot of military pride, Napoleonic-icon.png Napoleonic and Kingdom of Jerusalem-icon.png Crusader dreams). She often likes to reference the best parts of its history, and she's very prideful. Franceball is also very beautiful, and as a result it attracts a lot of international tourists every year. Franceball is also arabaphobic, so this is why many Arabballs hate her.

    Histoire / History

    Ancient History Francia-icon.png (200BC-1200AD)

    Franceball (otherwise known as Francia-icon.png Franciaball in their teenage years) is the biological child of Gaul-icon.png Gaulball, and also the sibling of UK-icon.png UKball by adoption. Franceball's father (by adoption), SPQR-icon.png SPQRball, was a harsh trainer but otherwise a loving father who taught Franceball nice pools, Christianity, and the art of Imperialism. When SPQR-icon.png SPQRball died (killed by Germania-icon.png Germaniaball), however, they were left as orphans, and the once-siblings became rivals who always tried to up each other in the game of World Domination, to be the one and the only successor of SPQR-icon.png SPQRball, aka the Imperium. The siblings have always fought each other ever since and became a great kingdom in Gaulball and Germanaball. In this game, and with the kebab expansion of the 600's, Francia-icon.png Franciaball became the only survivor of the post SPQR-icon.png SPQRball first-generation balls after having sequestered Burgundy-icon.png Burgundyball. Taking their clay from the north side, Franceball fixed their capital in Paris-icon.png Parisball, even if Lyon-icon.png Lyonball was the one of Gaul-icon.png Gaulball and strongest at this time.

    After Franceball defeated the kebab barbarians on their clay in 732, they won ever more prestige and became a powerful centralized state in Europe, recycling the western Roman Empire with Charlemagne (damned by Byzantine-icon.png Byzantineball). But just released from the kebab attacks, Franceball was harassed by Kalmar Union-icon.png Nordicball and offered him a place in Franceball's clay to calm him, creating Normandy-icon.png Normandyball who should protect Paris-icon.png Parisball from the seaside.

    While England-icon.png Englandball established relative control over their rainy clay, Franceball expanded their empire into Germania-icon.png Germania, Italy, Spain, and Burgundy-icon.png Burgundyball, diffusing Catholicism, Latin language and their cooking and architecture over there, but Franceball's clay was divided into three parts in 843. This event built a kind of other Franceball, in the east in Germania-icon.png Germaniaball, a clone in other words, who kept the empire title and begun HRE-icon.png HREball.

    In 1066, Kingdom of France-icon.png Kingdom of Franceball’s step-brother Normandy-icon.png Normandyball conquered England-icon.png Englandball's clay, resulting in Franceball's political and cultural domination of England-icon.png Englandball's clay for some centuries. This is why all smart and sophisticated words come from Franceball’s cool language.

    In the 1090s some french balls (Occitania-icon.png Toulouseball Flanders-icon.png Flandersball, Normandy-icon.png Normandyball and many else) started the first crusade up, claiming Jerusalem-icon.png Jerusalemcube and took it in 1098 after building a new countryball in the Levant, Kingdom of Jerusalem-icon.png Kingdom of Jerusalemball. For the next centuries, Franceball has been the primordial European arbitrator of the political events of Mediterranea and Orient, being sometimes in open war with Byzantine-icon.png Byzantineball, Turkey-icon.png Turkeyball, and Egypt-icon.png Egyptball.

    France Médiévale Kingdom of France-icon.png (1200-1610)

    A long period of self-fulfillment continued in this context. Franceball developed new architecture as the "French art" (alias Gothic), new recipes, Franceball's language, their courteous feeling and a new concept of chivalry that are so fashion. Franceball's aristocracy infiltrated many thrones in Europe as Navarre-icon.png Navarreball, England-icon.png Englandball, Byzantine-icon.png Byzantineball, Savoy-icon.png Savoyball, Sicily-icon.png Kingdom of Sicilyball, Naples-icon.png Kingdom of Naplesball or Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball. Attracted by wine, sciences, and sun, England-icon.png Englandball harassed its since the XIth century. After having a first time completely rid themself of their painful presence, Franceball began a great modernization work at home. Jealous as ever, England-icon.png Englandball, HRE-icon.png HREball, and Flanders-icon.png Flandersball decided to bash Franceball into an imposing coalition. So in 1214 HRE-icon.png HREball and Flanders-icon.png Flandersball attacked Franceball to the head while England-icon.png Englandball attacked simultaneously in the back (like he usually does). Franceball counter-attacked and severely kicked them all at the battles of Castillon and Bouvines, strengthening their main position in the Occident.

    Later, the Hundred Years' War was a series of conflicts waged from 1337 to 1453 pitting England-icon.png Englandball, against Franceball for control of clay and finishing by the definitive expulsion of England-icon.png Englandball of their ground. Here is a full list of English-French rivalry. With tactics of entrenchment and archery which put an end to the chivalrous methods of Franceball, England-icon.png Englandball defeated Franceball at Crecy in 1346, and Poitiers in 1356, taking enormous part of Franceball's land which was reconquered and conquered again during decades. To make matters worse for Franceball, a civil war begun between the feudal guilds of Burgundy-icon.png Burgundyball and Centre-Val de Loire-icon.png Orleansball (who successively allied themselves to Englandball) and, like a detail, the Black Death destroyed most of Franceball's resources in the 1340s and 1350s. However, Franceball had the pleasure of watching it spread to England-icon.png Englandball and also watching his civil war, known as the Wars of the Roses. In 1415, after a particularly humiliating defeat by their brother at Agincourt ("Azincourt" for civilized people), after which almost half their clay was occupied by him, Franceball secretly vowed to get their act together again. In 1429, Franceball did just that, kicking his arse at Orleans and retaking Paris to Burgundy-icon.png Burgundyball. But in 1431, with Burgundy-icon.png Burgundyball's help, Englandball captured and burned Franceball's secret to power.

    However, Burgundy-icon.png Burgundyball abandoned England-icon.png Englandball when Franceball developed their new fatal weapon: the powdered artillery regiments to solve all their problems. Franceball reclaimed most of their clay by 1453, with the exception of Calais city which was the first "Gibraltarball" of UKball (recovered in 1558), ending the systematic looting of its pretty gardens.

    But a kind of cold war begun with Burgundy-icon.png Burgundyball. Franceball built a large anti-Burgundyball club with Savoy-icon.png Savoyball, Switzerland-icon.png Switzerlandball, Lorraine-icon.png Lorraineball, Alsace-icon.png Alsaceball, and Milan-icon.png Milanball which isolated Burgundy-icon.png Burgundyball. This proxy war ended in the battle of Nancyball in 1477 and with the disintegration of Burgundian states between Franceball and Habsburg family, preparing tree centuries of intensive wars between Spain-icon.png Spainball and Franceball for the recovery of this ex "Grand duché d'Occident".

    By the 1480s, Franceball moved into the Renaissance of the 1500s as Burgundy-icon.png Burgundyball did 30 years before and Italy-icon.png Italyball before again. Franceball tried to capture Milan-icon.png Milanball and Naples-icon.png Kingdom of Naplesball where they were claimed by Aragon-icon.png Aragonball, destroying the Italian clay in a hard conflict with him and, by extension with Spain-icon.png Spainball who became rich and strongest after discovering the Americas. Franceball made Lyon-icon.png Lyonball temporarily its capital to be closer to Italy-icon.png Italyball but failed to conquer his clay.

    So after having Milan-icon.png Milanball, Naples-icon.png Kingdom of Naplesball, Sicily-icon.png Kingdom of Sicilyball, some parts of Burgundy-icon.png Burgundyball, 3/4 of Navarre-icon.png Navarreball's clay, united his kingdoms and was elected as boss of HRE-icon.png HREball, Spain-icon.png Spainball totally circled Franceball in a giant empire. Franceball tried to find allies in Poland-icon.png Polandball, England-icon.png Englandball and Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball.

    Apart from the occasional war with England-icon.png Englandball in 1512 and 1525/6, tensions between the two siblings lowered as they celebrated together at the Field of the Cloth of Gold in 1520. That was the occasion to humiliate culturally and sportively England-icon.png Englandball. In 1555, Franceball reclaimed Calais from him and set about organizing their army and navy for overseas exploration, colonization, and trade. In 1559, however, Franceball ended their alliance with England-icon.png Englandball's brother Scotland-icon.png Scotlandball, after he became Presbyterian, and kicked Franceball out of Leith, and set about massacring Protestant Huguenots in 1572 when Franceball began to think about a dynasty reversal. Franceball also began reclaiming their frontiers. By 1600, after having fought Spain-icon.png Spainball a lot, and building some overseas colonies, Franceball was the most influential ball in Europe once again.

    Ancien Régime New France-icon.png (1610-1789)

    In the 1660s, Franceball had become a rich and prosperous nationball, built some colonies in East India Company-icon.png India and in the Americas as New France-icon.png New Franceball (future Quebec-icon.png Quebecball) and spent all their spare time to bash Spain-icon.png Spainball. However, Franceball had been badly traumatized by the Thirty Years War (1618-1648). The resulting Peace of Westphalia in 1648 had seen the European political spectrum shift dramatically, and in 1682, Franceball completed an ambitious project, the Palace of Versailles, which rivaled all other palaces in Europe. Franceball had also made some conquests in the Lorraine-icon.png Lorraineball east in the 1670s and 1680s.

    Franceball was also involved in European conflicts, such as the Nine Years War, and the War of the Spanish Succession in the 1700s. Franceball had also not forgotten about England-icon.png Englandball's humiliation of themself in the Middle Ages and tried to extract revenge by supporting the Catholic Irelandball in 1691 against England-icon.png Englandball, albeit half-heartedly. In 1718, Franceball briefly reconciled with their brother, the newly-united UK-icon.png UKball to fight Spain-icon.png Spainball in the War of the Quadruple Alliance (1718-1720). 1718 was also when they founded New Orleansball in modern-day Louisianaball.

    In 1730, Franceball was at a new height, having a string of colonies in the Americas, governed by their son New France-icon.png New Franceball, and an alliance with the soon-to-be anschlussed Madrasball. Franceball had adopted children such as San Domingoball (later succeeded by his son Haiti-icon.png Haitiball), Martinique-icon.png Martiniqueball, and Guadeloupe-icon.png Guadeloupeball. And yet, Franceball wanted more. In 1745, the War of the Austrian Succession saw Franceball take most of Austrian Netherlands-icon.png Austrian Netherlandsball's (fossil of Burgundy-icon.png Burgundyball passed from Spain-icon.png Spainball to Austria-icon.png Austriaball during the Habsbourg area) clay, only to be forced to hand it back in 1748 by the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle. Franceball's desperate attempts to get revenge on UK-icon.png UKball culminated in the Vivelaspin.gif Diplomatic Revolution, and the Seven Years War of 1754-1763, during which Franceball lost India, Americas, and the Caribbean. The humiliating Treaty of Paris in 1763 saw Franceball lose most of their colonial possessions, and New France-icon.png New Franceball was held captive by UK-icon.png UKball to be raised with ColAmerica-icon.png Thirteen Coloniesball.

    In 1776, ColAmerica-icon.png Thirteen Coloniesball declared independence from his father UK-icon.png UKball, and seeing their chance to get even with their brother, Franceball sent supplies and ammunition to help their nephew. Franceball went personally in 1778 to help him, along with Spain-icon.png Spainball and the Dutch Republicball, who hated the UK-icon.png UKball for land loss as well, tripling his forces. Despite UK-icon.png UKball's help from Iroquois Confederacy-icon.png Iroquoisball and Hesse-icon.png Hesseball, he was unable to prevail the french and rebel forces and was forced to pull out of America in 1781, after the blockage of his fleet by Franceball at the Siege of Yorktown, and another Treaty of Parisball in 1783 forced him to recognize his son as the newly-independent USA-icon.png USAball who just mumbled a "thank you" to them and began to watch Louisianaball with appetite. Helping their nephew, however, had cost Franceball a lot of money, which meant that Franceball was now deeply in debt. Franceball's extravagant lifestyle contributed to Franceball's financial problems, and despite scientific breakthroughs and discoveries in the Enlightenment, new ideals of Liberty and Equality had penetrated their mind, and in 1789, Franceball had a complete personality change France-icon.png. This alarmed Franceball's ally Austria-icon.png Austriaball, Franceball's hated neighbor UK-icon.png UKball and the other European balls who were still conservatively minded.

    Vivelaspin.gif Révolution and Napoleonic Wars Napoleonic-icon.png (1789-1815)

    In 1792, Franceball declared themself to be a republic and won the Battle of Valmy against Kingdom of Prussia-icon.png Prussia and Austria-icon.png Austriaball attempting to seize Franceball's clay. The First Coalition was formed against them by UK-icon.png UKball and Austria-icon.png Austriaball, and as a result, in 1793, Napoleonic-icon.png France set about purging Franceball's memories of the Bourbon past. However, Franceball found themself descending into madness and fear, as the civil war in the Vendee (1793-1796) and the Terror (1793-94) nibbled away at its sanity. By 1794 UK-icon.png UKball had invaded Flanders with the help of Luxembourg-icon.png Dutch Republicball and HRE-icon.png Holy Roman Empireball but was defeated and chased away by Franceball in 1795. But by 1795, Franceball had a new personality, the first European republic ball, and set about taking Franceball's lands back. In 1796-7, Franceball invaded Piedmont-icon.png Piedmontball, Savoy-icon.png Savoyball and the Papal States-icon.png Papal Statesball's clay, emptying Vatican-icon.png Vatican Cityball's treasury, and marching into Vienna. The Second Coalition was formed to stop Franceball. In 1793, Franceball's brother UK-icon.png UKball blockaded their port at Toulon in 1797 but failed to stop French advancement upon Malta-icon.png Maltaball and Egypt-icon.png Egyptball in 1798. He did, however, succeed in destroying Franceball's ships at the Battle of the Nile while Franceball was distracted by Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball in Syria, so in 1799, Franceball left Egypt-icon.png Egypt and returned to Europe.

    In 1800, Napoleonic-icon.png France defeated Austria-icon.png Austriaball at the Battle of Marengo and defeated HRE-icon.png Holy Roman Empireball the following year. The Peace of Amiens in 1802 that came after UK-icon.png UKball's temporary defeat offered its a bit of a breather, but Franceball realized they were running low on funds. So in 1803, Franceball sold the Louisiana Territory to USA-icon.png USAball for 15,000,000 USD and declared herself an Empire in 1804. (ironic!) Sh . However, their navy was utterly annihilated at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805 by UK-icon.png UKball and realizing it was better at land warfare, Franceball spent most of USAball's money on their Grand Armée. In 1805 UK-icon.png UKball funded a coalition against Franceball in an attempt to remove Bonapartist sentiments from her, in response Napoleonic-icon.png France marched onto central Europe where Franceball defeated Russian-Empire-icon.png Russia and Austria-icon.png Austriaball at Austerlitz, resulting in the dissolution of HRE-icon.png Holy Roman Empireball. In 1806, Franceball won the twin battles of Iéna and Auerstadt, then Tilsit against Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball, and also against Kingdom of Prussia-icon.png Prussiaball, and the Confederation of the Rhine, which gave its domination of Continental Europe. Franceball resurrected Poland-icon.png Polandball and implemented the Continental System, an attempt to embargo UK-icon.png UKball into submission. Austria-icon.png Austriaball was defeated again in 1809 at the battle of Wagram, and the Treaty of Schoenbrunn was signed.

    In 1808, France began the Peninsular War (1808-1814), against Spain-icon.png Spainball, who no longer co-operated with her, and took Madrid in 1809, forcing Portugal-icon.png Portugalball and Kingdom of the Two Sicilies-icon.png Kingdom of the Two Siciliesball into exile. By 1811, Napoleonic-icon.png Franceball ruled much of Europe, having defeated the Third and Fourth and Fifth Coalitions, with Austria-icon.png Austriaball, UK-icon.png UKball and Kingdom of Prussia-icon.png Prussia subdued. Drunk on success & confidence, Franceball invaded Russian-Empire-icon.png Russia's massive clay via Warsaw. Franceball advanced into Smolensk and Moscow, which Russian-Empire-icon.png Russiaball had destroyed in advance, so Franceball found nothing. Starving and bitterly cold and disappointed, Franceball tried to head home, only to find the road blocked at Maloyaroslavets, forcing its into combat with Russian-Empire-icon.png Russiaball at Borodino in the winter of 1812. Franceball won the battle, but the winter caused its to weaken, and they barely made it back to their clay, with prestige in tatters.

    The War of the Sixth Coalition saw Napoleonic-icon.png Franceball shamed further by the Confederation of the Rhine and Kingdom of Prussia-icon.png Prussiaball at the Battle of Leipzig in 1813, and its defeat in Spain in 1814. By mid-1814, the armies of the Sixth Coalition were advancing on its clay, and Franceball decided to send their Bonapartist sentiments to Elba. However, they escaped, and by June 1815, it was back on their former clay, with its army back, and it marched on Brussels but was stopped at Les Quatres Bras, where Franceball defeated Kingdom of Prussia-icon.png Prussiaball. However, UK-icon.png UKball and Kingdom of Prussia-icon.png Prussiaball managed to finally defeat its at the Battle of Waterloo, whereupon Franceball was given therapy by the Concert of Europe, and its personality changed back into its old self (mostly). Her Bonapartist sentiments were sent to UK-icon.png UKball's son St. Helenaball's clay, and it died in 1821.

    Vivelaspin.gif Révolutions and Wars (1815-1914)

    After 1815, the Concert of Europe was set up to help Europe recover from Napoleonic-icon.png Franceball's rampage. Franceball became a secondary power to UK-icon.png UKball, who dominated the world unquestionably during the Pax Britannica and focused on overseas colonies. Franceball's new continental possessions had been removed from her, and in the 1820s and 1830s, Franceball invaded much of the Algerian coastline, seizing control from the Barbary pirates. In 1830, Franceball had another change of personality, albeit a much smaller one this time, which did not have much effect upon Franceball. In 1832, Franceball had a brief period of fear.

    Franceball took advantage of the Industrial Vivelaspin.gif Revolution to expand their economy and industry. Franceball had yet another personality change in 1848, along with Austria-icon.png Austriaball, and Kingdom of Prussia-icon.png Prussiaball, and declared themselves a republic once again. However, in 1852, Franceball became an Empire again. This time, Franceball sought to co-operate with their brother, having matured. They worked together in the Crimean War against Russian-Empire-icon.png Russiaball with Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball in 1853-56, and again in 1859-60 in Qing-icon.png Qing Chinaball's clay in the Second Opium War. During the Second Empire, Franceball adopted part of Savoieball's clay and Nice-icon.png Niceball from Sardinia-icon.png Sardiniaball, who later became Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball in 1861, after Franceball helped him liberate Italian Stateballs from Austriaball in 1859; and then it experienced a revival in the arts and sciences, with new buildings, such as the Pantheon, the Opera Garnier, and the Napoleon III apartments in the Louvre. Franceball claimed new colonies by adopting New Caledonia-icon.png New Caledoniaball in 1853, and Cochinchinaball in 1862.

    However, France's luck declined from 1863 onwards. Franceball tried to help Austria-icon.png Austriaball onto Mexico-icon.png Mexicoball's clay, but Mexico-icon.png Mexicoball defeated miraculously them both, and they left in frustration. In 1866, Austria-icon.png Austriaball and Kingdom of Prussia-icon.png Prussiaball were at war with each other, and Kingdom of Prussia-icon.png Prussiaball and the North German Confederation tried to gain Franceball's guarantee of neutrality. Franceball was too busy eyeing Luxembourg-icon.png Luxembourgball's clay to notice, however, and after an unsatisfactory reply was produced to Kingdom of Prussia-icon.png Prussiaball, he invaded Franceball's clay in 1870, defeating Franceball at Metzball and Sedan, and laying siege to Paris. Franceball was humiliated once more, and sought revenge after Prussia, who became German Empire-icon.png German Empireball, in 1871 (in its own palace of Versailles), and took their Alsace-icon.png Alsaceball and eastern Lorraine-icon.png Lorraineball clay.

    After the defeat of 1870, Franceball descended into madness again, but the France-icon.png Third Republic was declared in 1871 and came to be a long-lasting cure for Franceball's constant fits of madness and personality changes. France feared German Empire-icon.png Imperial Germanyball's fast groing GDP, so it helped economy by building the Suez Canal project on the Khedivate of Egypt-icon.png Egyptian Khedivateball to get quick access to Asia with the UK-icon.png UKball. By 1884, it had recovered enough to participate in the Scramble of Africa with a series of sending its army to anscluss african kingdoms starting from central africa all the way to the Sahara enslaving 8-icon.png 8balls, kidnapping and adopting Senegal-icon.png Senegalball, Gabon-icon.png Gabonball, Burkina Faso-icon.png Upper Voltaball, Tunisia-icon.png Tunisiaball, and Benin-icon.png Dahomeyball. Though 1895 to 1897 France threw two wars and invaded Czech SR-icon.png Merina Kingdomball, gaining full control of Madagascarball. Franceball gradually became stable again, donating and receiving gifts (the Statue of Liberty to USA-icon.png USAball in 1886, and the Eiffel Tower in 1889), and entered the prosperity of the Belle Epoque of the 1890s, with only the Dreyfuss Affair of 1895 to worry them. Franceball threw two wars and invaded Czech SR-icon.png Merina Kingdomball from 1895 to 1897 and formed alliances with its now partner UK-icon.png UKball formally in 1904, and Russian-Empire-icon.png Russiaball, in 1907, to form the Triple Entente, or the Entente Cordiale, to protect themselves against German Empire-icon.png German Empireball's growing strength. Franceball longed to recover its children Alsace-icon.png Alsaceball and Lorraine-icon.png Lorraineball, so when war broke out in 1914, Franceball enthusiastically launched Plan 17 and attacked German Empire-icon.png German Empire's western Rhine border.

    Guerres Mondiales Free France-icon.png (1914-1945)

    However, German Empire-icon.png German Empireball had activated his Schlieffen Plan and attacked through Belgium-icon.png Belgiumball's clay, which slowed him down slightly, giving Franceball valuable time to mobilize its army. Franceball defended Paris at the bloody battle of the Marne, while its brother outflanked German Empire-icon.png German Empireball in the Race to the Sea. In 1915, German Empire-icon.png German Empireball used poison-gas and aerial-bombers at Mons, and beat up Franceball at Neuve-Chapelle but was defeated by Franceball at Verdun in 1916. By 1917, the tide of war was turning, as Franceball and its allies captured all of German Empire-icon.png German Empireball's overseas colonies, and despite Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball's personality change, they were supplemented by USA-icon.png USAball's help, who helped defeat German Empire-icon.png German Empireball at the Meuse-Argonne offensive in spring 1918. Franceball and UK-icon.png UKball accepted an armistice, which went into effect on the 11th of November, 1918.

    As Austria-icon.png Austriaball, German Empire-icon.png German Empireball was completely dismembered, and his son, Germany-icon.png Weimar Republicball, was forced by Franceball to pay massive reparations of 6.6 billion pounds, and also forced to sign the humiliating Treaty of Versailles in 1919 at the Paris Peace Conference. Alsace-Lorraine clay was returned to Franceball, who received the Levant, Kamerunball, Togolandball, and the Saarland as well, and Germany-icon.png Weirmar Republicball was forbidden from uniting with Austria-icon.png Austriaball or arming the Rhineland, bordering Franceball's clay. When hyperinflation set in in Germany-icon.png Weimar Republicball's clay in 1923, he tried to postpone payments, only for an enraged Franceball to occupy his Ruhr clay. Franceball left in 1925, after Germany-icon.png Germanyball signed the Locarno Treaties, and joined the League of Nations, of which they already were a founding member of, in 1926, satisfied that Franceball was now safe. Franceball also signed the Kellogg-Briand Pact of 1928 in favor of disarmament, but just as it looked as though the world was headed for peace, it was plunged into the Great Depression by the Wall Street Crash in USA-icon.png USAball's stock market in 1929.

    Without USA-icon.png USAball's loans, Franceball's economies ground to a halt, as Germany-icon.png Weimar Republicball became Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball, intent on avenging ReichTime.png Reichtangle in 1933, and Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball became fascist. Not wanting another War, UK-icon.png UKball and Franceball used a policy of appeasement in the 1930s, which included giving Nazi Germanyball the Saarland back, allowing him to rearm the Rhineland-Palatinate-icon.png Rhineland, and re-occupy Danzig. After the 1938 Anschluss, and the Czech crand Germany-icon.png West Germanyball, and they joined NATO-icon.png NATO. Franceball became a permanent member of the newly-formed Conseil de Sécurité des Nations Unies (UN security council) and declared the Fourth Republic. She also created and held on to Saar Protectorate-icon.png Saar Protectorateball until 1957. Then, after Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball invaded Poland, it and UK-icon.png UKball declared war on him. In response, Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball invaded the Dutch region of Europe, and used his blitzkreig technique for the first time. France looked at its capital, Paris-icon.png Parisball, with all it's art and literature, and decided to surrender so Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball wouldn't destroy all of that. And so it was split between Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball and Kingdom of Italyball, and the rest of his clay was made into a puppet state called Vichy France-icon.png Vichy Franceball. After a few years of this containment, France took the from of Free France-icon.pngFree Franceball by the colonies of French Equatorial Africa-icon.png French Equatorial Africaball which most (except French Gabon-icon.png French Gabonball who would later be invaded) pledged royality to its and invaded nearby French West Africa-icon.png French West Africaball and French Libya-icon.png French Libyaball to particate in D-Day and defeated the axis along with all the other ​allied members, and won WWII.

    France-icon.png Modern Franceball France-icon.png

    After World War II and the conclusion of its double old vendetta against both destroyed Austria-icon.png Austriaball and Kingdom of Prussia-icon.png Prussiaball, Franceball began to flourish again. But the disastrous 1946 war of decolonization in Indochina, where Vietnam-icon.png North Vietnamball and South Vietnam-icon.png South Vietnamball, as well as Cambodia-icon.png Cambodiaball and Laos-icon.png Laosball, gained their independence in the 1954 Geneva Accords following Franceball's Dien Bien Phu defeat left its relatively destitute. Franceball let some of the African colonies, namely French West Africa-icon.png French West Africaball and French Equatorial Africa-icon.png French Equatorial Africaball go without a fight in 1960 (and giving French Libya-icon.png French-occupied Fezzanball back to the now newly independent Libya-icon.png Kingdom of Libyaball 7 years before), by referendum, being not able to offer French citizen equality to all the subjects of the Empire without making of its own European population an ethnic minority. In 1958, they formed the Fifth Republic's system to resolve a major political crisis in the decolonization context but was forced to give up its last major colonial possession, Algeria-icon.png Algeriaball, up in 1962 following the Evian Accords to stop a steril bloody war. By now Franceball had already formed the EU-icon.png EECball (later EU-icon.png EUball)'s predecessor entity, the European Coal and Steel Union in 1951, and through the 1956 Treaty of Rome, married Germany-icon.png West Germanyball and gave birth to EEC (EU-icon.png EUball) in the Treaty of Utrecht the following year. Franceball put a vet at the entrance of UK-icon.png UKball's in EU-icon.png EUball considering he's just a troll (future showed that he was) but he entered in 1973 after President De Gaulle's death. Franceball had a brief madness anti-systemic period in 1968 with a love story with Soviet-icon.png Sovietball and China-icon.png Chinaball, origin of their current headaches.

    Franceball's Gaullist era ended in 1970 but continues to be a massive influence of world politics, and in 1977, let go of Djiboutiball, and in the 1990s was essential in the reorganization of their son EU-icon.png EUball. People come from all over once more to visit its clay and once again became a vibrant countryball of culture, arts, and sports. In 1998, its beloved "Bleus" won the World Cup on home clay in the mythic Stadium of Franceball. Franceball also hosts the French Open tennis tournament at Roland-Garros, as well as the Tour de France bicycle race, which has been traveling annually across its clay every July since 1903 (except during the World Wars). It is the highlight of Franceball's summer because it brings millions of cycling fans to its clay from all over the world.

    After the Al-Qaeda-icon.png kebabs attack against USA-icon.png USAball on September 11, 2001, Franceball tried to mobilize oriental balls against terrorist groups based on their clay and put its veto on the USA-icon.png USAball's project to invade Iraq-icon.png Iraqball, interpreting it with insight as a desire for oil orgy. As a vendetta, USA-icon.png USAball began a moral bashing game against Franceball and a destruction one on Iraq-icon.png Iraqball's clay.

    Franceball was the host of two FIFA World Cups in the past: the first time in 1938, and the second time in 1998.

    2015: Year of tragedies and terrorist attacks

    2015 was the Year of tragedies and terrorist attacks of Franceball because there are two major terrorist attacks that happened in Paris-icon.png Parisball. From 7 January 2015 to 9 January 2015, terrorist attacks occurred across the Île-de-France region, particularly in Paris-icon.png Parisball. Three attackers killed a total of 17 in four shooting attacks, and police then killed the three assailants. The attacks also wounded 22 other people. The fifth shooting attack did not result in any fatalities. Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula claimed responsibility and said that the coordinated attacks had been planned for years. On January 7, 2015, two ISIS-icon.png ISISball gunmen shot 12 members of the staff at the headquarters of the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo dead and 12 members wounded. On 8 January another ISIS-icon.png ISISball gunman shot a police officer and was killed. The gunner killed four more victims and took hostages on January 9 at a kosher supermarket near the Porte de Vincennes. Police tracked the assailants to an industrial estate in Dammartin-en-Goële, where ISIS-icon.png ISISball gunners took a hostage. French armed forces and police conducted simultaneous raids in Dammartin and Porte de Vincennes, killing all three ISIS-icon.png ISISball attackers. After 12 January 2015 and for an indefinite period, as part of Operation Sentinelle, nearly 10,500 military personnel were deployed in France to secure 830 sensitive places (school, churches, press organizations, etc). On November 13, 2015, ISIS-icon.png ISISball attacked Paris-icon.png Parisball again. They started suicide bombings outside of the Stade de France first and continued into the streets of the city killing people at several cafes and at the Bataclan concert hall, where people attending a rock concert were also taken hostage. 137 Dead, around 500 were non-fatal injuries. The attack in Paris-icon.png Parisball on November 13, 2015, was the most devastating terrorist attack in Franceball's history. As an answer, Franceball sent their fighter planes to bomb and precipitate the decline of ISIS-icon.png ISISball on kebabs clay.

    2016: Joy and Sadness

    The year 2016 was a year of both joy and sadness for Franceball. After 7 years of futility, Franceball finally could into a good result at the Eurovision Song Contest when they went to Sweden-icon.png Swedenball and finished in 6th place in the grand final with the extremely catchy song J'ai cherché, its best result in 14 years. A month later, Franceball proudly hosted the 2016 UEFA Euro Cup soccer tournament. Franceball defeated Germany-icon.png Germanyball after kicking Icelandball in a funny "festival des buts" and finally lost in extra time to their brother Portugal-icon.png Portugalball. Still, the tournament was seen as a massive success bringing supporters throughout the metropolitan area.

    On July 14 (Bastille Day), a day that was meant for celebration, tragedy struck when Nice-icon.png Niceball was run over by a truck. Because of what happened combined with the 2015 attacks at Charlie Hebdo and the Bataclan, Franceball has sworn never to forgive ISIS-icon.png ISISball for what they did. And despite the sadness, Franceball's beloved Tour de France went on, taking time to remember the victims of that horrible attack.

    2017-2018: A rollercoaster of good and hard times

    On January 29, 2017, Franceball won the world men's handball championship. On that same day in Philippines-icon.png Philippinesball, Franceball won Miss Universe - the only candidate from Europe to advance through the competition. Franceball had waited over 60 years for this moment!

    On 20 April, at 9:00 PM, a new attack happened on the Champs-Elysées. Three French National Police officers were shot by one of the gunners who believe in ISIS-icon.png ISISball (Karim Cheurfi) and one of the police officers (Xavier Jugelé) was killed. One female tourist who is from Germany-icon.png Germanyball is seriously wounded. The gunner was then shot dead by the police. Franceball will still never forgive what ISIS-icon.png ISISball did before the presidential elections. They elected as president the young liberal Emmanuel Macron-icon.png Emmanuel Macron kebab remover of En Marche! and kick put a temporary end to the conservative also kebab remover Marine Le Pen influence, which created a big social divide in its clay.

    Sadly, on June 19, 2017, a closed attack happened on the Champs-Elysées (terrorists attacked the police). Only one death, but that death is the terrorist. But Franceball still worries about the possible attacks happening in the future.

    Franceball was delighted to learn on July 31, 2017, that its dear Paris-icon.png Parisball would be hosting the 2024 Summer Olympics after Los Angeles-icon.png Los Angelesball made a deal with the IOC to host 2028 instead - it was made official on September 13, 2017, at the IOC's meetings in Peruball. Franceball can't wait to welcome the world to its clay for that beautiful event for the first time in a century!

    2018 FIFA World Cup in a nutshell

    On October 10, 2017, Franceball qualified for the World Cup in Russia-icon.png Russiaball. Sweden-icon.png Swedenball beat its in the June qualifiers, but Franceball kept on fighting. Franceball got their revenge for both their brother Italy-icon.png Italyball and themselves after Swedenball got knocked out of the quarterfinals by England-icon.png Englandball.

    As for herself, Franceball cruised through the group stage at the World Cup. In the round of 16, it sent Argentina-icon.png Argentinaball and Lionel Messi packing, rekt Uruguay-icon.png Uruguayball in the quarterfinals and defeated its son Belgium-icon.png Belgiumball in the semis. Franceball also celebrated the 105th Tour de France at the same time which started in Pays de la Loireball, Franceball hoped to win the World Cup for the first time since its victory at the Stade de Franceball 20 years ago... and did it against Croatia-icon.png Croatiaball (ZBLAM!)

    On November 24, 2018, the "gilet jaune" movement took place in Paris where thousands of people were protesting against the LREM's measure in many parts of France (people were angered about the rise of the taxes, the price of petrol that would increase)... Police, Gendarmes, Gilets Jaune, and Rioters were clashing (mostly) in the streets of Paris damages were done this night... (tho the worst case was what happened in Réunion)

    2019-2021: Fire, COVID 19 Pandemic, and remove kebab!!!!!!

    On April 15, 2019, just before 18:20 CEST, a structure fire broke out beneath the roof of Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral in Paris-icon.png Parisball. By the time it was extinguished, the building's spire collapsed and most of its roof had been destroyed and its upper walls severely damaged. Extensive damage to the interior was prevented by its stone vaulted ceiling, which largely contained the burning roof as it collapsed. Many works of art and religious relics were moved to safety early in the emergency, but others suffered some smoke damage, and some exterior art was damaged or destroyed. The cathedral's altar, two pipe organs, and its three 13th-century rose windows suffered little to no damage. Three emergency workers were injured. Contamination of the site and the nearby environment resulted.

    Since January 24, 2020, 2019-nCoV.png COVID-19 virus was confirmed to have reached Franceball, when the first COVID-19 case in both EU-icon.png EUball and Franceball was identified in Bordeaux-icon.pngBordeauxball. The first five confirmed cases were all individuals who had recently arrived from China-icon.png Chinaball. A Chinese tourist who was admitted to hospital in Paris-icon.png Parisball on 28 January died on 14 February, making it the first COVID-19 death in France as well as the first COVID-19 death outside Asia. A key event in the spread of the disease across Metropolitan France as well as its overseas territories was the annual assembly of the Christian Open Door Church between 17 and 24 February in Mulhouseball which was attended by about 2,500 people, at least half of whom are believed to have contracted the virus. On 4 May, retroactive testing of samples in one French hospital showed that a patient was probably already infected with the virus on 27 December, almost a month before the first officially confirmed case. Until October 29, 2020 total Covid 19 confirmed cases in Franceball was 1282769 cases.

    In October 16, 2020, Samuel Paty, a French middle-school teacher, took place on 16 October 2020 in Conflans-Sainte-Honorineball, a suburb of Parisball. Paty was killed and beheaded in an act of Islamist terrorism. The perpetrator, Abdoullakh Abouyedovich Anzorov, an 18-year-old Muslim Russian-born refugee of Chechnya-icon.png chechen descent, killed and beheaded Paty with a knife. Anzorov was shot and killed by police minutes later. His motive for the murder was that Paty had, in a class on freedom of expression, shown his students Charlie Hebdo cartoons depicting the Islamic prophet Muhammad, including one cartoon which depicted Muhammad naked. French president Emmanuel Macron-icon.png Emmanuel Macron said that the incident was "a typical Islamist terrorist attack", and that "our compatriot was killed for teaching children freedom of speech". The murder was one of several attacks in France in recent years, and it created debate in society and politics.

    The above did nothing but call for people to boycott Franceball, some calling for map removal, and making Franceball's relationship with the Arab world deteriorate harder, especially with its son Algeria-icon.png Algeriaball.

    On November 29, Franceball won the 2020 Junior Eurovision Song Contest hosted by its little friend Poland-icon.png Polandball. It was just the thing it needed to cheer herself up through such difficult times!

    Franceball finished 2nd at Eurovision 2021 in Netherlands-icon.png Netherlandsball, only behind its brother Italy-icon.png Italyball - its best result in 30 years. She won its group at Euro 2021 a short time later, however it lost in the Round of 16 to Switzerland-icon.png Switzerlandball in a penalty shootout.

    Regional lands

    Metropolitan regionballs

    France is divided into 18 administrative regions, including 13 metropolitan regions and 5 overseas regions.

    The 13 metropolitan regions (including 12 mainland regions and Corsica) are each further subdivided into 2 to 13 departments, while the overseas regions consist of only one department each and hence are also referred to as "overseas departments". The current legal concept of region was adopted in 1982, and in 2016 what had been 27 regions was reduced to 18.
