About this deal

The President has the power to dissolve Parliament or circumvent it by submitting referendums directly to the people; the President also appoints judges and civil servants, negotiates and ratifies international agreements, as well as serves as commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces. Basic principles of the rule of law were laid in the Napoleonic Code (which was, in turn, largely based on the royal law codified under Louis XIV). Modern France is still named today Francia in Italian and Spanish, while Frankreich in German, Frankrijk in Dutch and Frankrike in Swedish and Norwegian all mean "Land/realm of the Franks".

France retains strong political and economic influence in its former African colonies ( Françafrique) [158] and has supplied economic aid and troops for peacekeeping missions in Ivory Coast and Chad. Subsequent decades saw a period of economic prosperity and cultural and scientific flourishing known as the Belle Époque.

After strong demographic and agricultural development between the 4th and 3rd millennia BC, metallurgy appeared at the end of the 3rd millennium BC, initially working gold, copper and bronze, then later iron.

France is considered a world leader in nuclear technology, with reactors and fuel products being major exports. Less than 2 per cent of GDP is generated by the primary sector, namely agriculture; [179] however, France's agricultural sector is among the largest in value and leads the EU in terms of overall production. By the way, Greenland is the country with the lowest population density, and no, it is not for sale.The Albigensian Crusade was launched in 1209 to eliminate the heretical Cathars in the southwestern area of modern-day France.

Despite protectionist policies over certain industries, particularly in agriculture, France has generally played a leading role in fostering free trade and commercial integration in Europe to enhance its economy. Due to its overwhelming reliance on nuclear power, renewable energies have seen relatively little growth compared to other Western countries.In addition to the 18 regions and 101 departments, the French Republic has five overseas collectivities ( French Polynesia, Saint Barthélemy, Saint Martin, Saint Pierre and Miquelon, and Wallis and Futuna), one sui generis collectivity ( New Caledonia), one overseas territory ( French Southern and Antarctic Lands), and one island possession in the Pacific Ocean ( Clipperton Island). That is, Law should lay out prohibitions only if they are needed, and if the inconveniences caused by this restriction do not exceed the inconveniences that the prohibition is supposed to remedy. It also saw a long set of wars, known as the Italian Wars, between France and the House of Habsburg.
