About

France

France is a modern European state and a republic. It is also one of the world’s major economies. In the Alps near the Italian and Swiss borders is Western Europe’s highest point — Mont Blanc (15,781 ft). The forest-covered Vosges Mountains are in the northeast, and the Pyrénées are along the Spanish border. Except a small, northern portion of France, the country may be described as four river basins and a plateau.

France is the largest state in the European Union by area and the third-largest in Europe behind Russia and Ukraine. France has been a major power for many centuries with strong economic, cultural, militaristic, and political influence.
