The Kingdom of France is a country in Western Europe, and is the founding seat of the French Colonial Empire that is part of the Great Seven. Having origins that trace from the end of the Classical Roman Empire of antiquity France is the oldest country of Europe on the Atlantic. Divided for centuries by feudal lords the rise of central authority in the 16th century turned the Kingdom of France towards oversees ventures. France's imperial ambitions brought mixed results but colonization of West Africa accelerated the country transition from agricultural to industrial in the 19th century. While hosting a famous reputation as an absolute monarchy, France has had a constitutional monarchy for two centuries. France officially supports Catholicism as a state religion competing with Spain to be the world's greatest benefactor to the global Catholic Church. Today France's economy is fueled by produce agriculture and medical technology. Contemporary issues are environmental sustainability and the cultural identification of the broader French Empire in relation to the Kingdom of France .

History

Seven Years War

See main article: Seven Years War

French Insurrection

Partly inspired by the (albeit abortive) American Revolution, partly by the bad harvests, French partisans rise up in revolt all over the country. However, they are poorly managed, and the French Royal Army manages to quash the revolt within a matter or weeks.

The leaders were executed in Paris later that year.

Netherlands War

See main article: Netherlands War

Constitutional Monarchy

Following the somewhat disastrous French involvement in the Netherlands War, a second, stronger revolt forces the French king, Louis XVI, to agree to a British-style constitutional government. Louis later retires to the Palace of Versailles, hardly ever leaving its grounds.

Politics and Government

Following the French Insurrection and the Netherlands War, France has been a constitutional monarchy.
