More about France
France is a republic in Western Europe. One fifth of the population lives in the metropolitan area of Paris. Large basin landscapes in the north (Paris Basin) and south (Aquitaine Basin) are bounded by low and high mountains or the Atlantic. There are numerous rivers, but only a few lakes. To the west of the Saône and Rhône, the plateaus of the very sparsely populated Massif Central stretch out. The climate is Atlantic, temperate in the north and Mediterranean in the south.
France has an efficient and diverse agriculture that exports most of the world’s agricultural goods. As a tourist destination, the country has also been at the top of the world for years. In the 19th century, industrialization took hold of the country, but it was not until after the Second World War that a comprehensive modernization into an industrial and then a service society took place under the conditions of state framework planning. Today France is one of the economically strongest industrial countries. Important sectors are vehicle and aircraft construction, the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, and food and beverage processing.
Historically, France can look back on a long national tradition. In the early modern period, a centralism set in around a strong monarchy, which oriented politics and society more and more towards the center of power, Paris. At the same time, France established itself as a major Catholic power, which was also a cultural fixed star for all of Europe for a time. The Fifth Republic (from 1958) created a semi-presidential system of government headed by a strong president. The party system broke away from its rigid right-left orientation at the end of the 20th century. Economic weaknesses put the developed welfare state under pressure. Islam, now the second largest religious community, put strict republican laicism to the test.

Despite belonging to different ethnic and linguistic groups, the population, which has been centrally ruled for a long time, has grown together into a unified people with a strong national consciousness. The French language is spoken by almost all residents as their mother tongue. However, French regional or ethnic languages do not coexist with French; bilingualism affects around 15 million people.
The Occitan language (Langue d’oc), spread from the Aquitanian coast to the Italian border (and beyond), is only spoken by a few people and its substance is severely threatened. Other linguistic minorities are the Bretons (in Brittany west of the Vannes – Paimpol line; 900,000 people), the Flemings (in French Flanders, around Dunkirk, 200,000), the Catalans in Roussillon (Département Pyrénées-Orientales, 300,000) as well as the Basques in the extreme southwest (around Saint-Jean-de-Luz, about 200,000). About 1 million live in the German-speaking area (Alsace, Eastern Lorraine); however, the German language has been strongly repressed. Around 1.2 million speak Italian (Corsica, area around Nice) as their mother tongue.
The increased use of foreign words finally led to a controversial law in 1994, which is primarily intended to reduce the influence of the English language.
The population of what is now France is estimated to be around 3 million in AD 500. It rose to 27.5 million by around 1800 and did not change significantly from 1866 (38 million) to 1946 (40.5 million). Since then, it has increased by around 1% annually, and the annual growth rate has now halved. The annual birthrate rose sharply from 1945 to the mid-1960s as a result of family and child-friendly policies (1964–68: 1.8%) and has since leveled off at around 1.2%.
Only with industrialization and the high demand for labor (especially in agriculture, mining, formerly also in domestic services) came many immigrants, especially since the First World War. In 2017, 4.64 million foreigners (6.9% of the total population) lived legally in France, 7.66 million (11.6% of the total population) were born abroad, 28.3% of them in other EU countries. The number of refugees is given by the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) as 401 700 at the end of 2017. 1954–62, during the Algerian War, around 1 million French returnees from North Africa came to the mother country.
The average population density of France (123 residents per km 2) is low compared to neighboring countries. Analogous to the economic focal points, there are agglomerations, above all the Paris metropolitan area, with a quarter of the total population (Île-de-France region: around 1000 residents per km 2).
In the Massif Central, the population density is 15 residents per km 2 (Lozère department). Check campingship to see France Tour Plan.
