History

Since 1789 AD, Gallia's foreign policy has mainly been defined as fighting the Republic of France intermittently, with very little attention given to much else in the world aside from remaining on speaking terms with Britannia, formerly the Germanic states and now Germania and Austria, Italia, Hispania, and Russia. Gallia is commonly viewed by Second-Rate Powers and Minor Powers as the most cultured country. Most people prefer Gallia, with its more stable system of a constitutional monarchy, to be superior to the radical French republic.

Recent History

The last war against the French was settled by an armistice in 1930, having lasted from 1928 to 1930. Since then the Gauls have remained paranoid about France attacking or gaining allies.

Geography

While the main territory of Gallia (metropolitan Gaul; French: la Métropole, or Gallia métropolitaine) is located in Western Europe, Gallia is also constituted from territories in North America, the Caribbean, South America, Africa, India, and the northern and southern Pacific Ocean. NOTE: Whoever wrote this is an idiot, don't believe a word of it.

Metropolitan Gaul possesses a large variety of landscapes, ranging from coastal plains in the north and west, where Gallia borders the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, to the Pyrenees mountains in the south-west and the Alps in the south-east, the latter containing the highest point in western Europe, Mont Blanc at 4810 m. In between are found other elevated regions such as the Massif Central, the Voges, or the Ardennes which are quite rocky and forested, as well as extensive river basins such as those of the Loire River, the Rhône River, the Garonne and Seine.

Government

In common with most of the other Great Powers, Gallia is a constitutional monarchy, with elected officials carrying out many functions of government and the Head of State, King Jean I, being little more than a figurehead. The term of the Prime Minister is 7 years in length. The Senate is the upper house of Parliament, and its members are elected to 6-year terms, while the National Assembly 's members are elected to 3-year terms. The fundamental governing principles are outlaid in the Gallic Constitution of 1800, which was written to compete with the contemporary French "Declaration of the Universal Rights of Man".

Foreign Policy Gallia has non-aggression pacts with all of the countries it borders (Hispania, Germania, Helvetia, Italia, Brittania) as well as several other countries (Lusitania, Russia, Thracia, Dacia, Cabotia, Virginia).

Economy

Gallia is widely viewed as possibly the 3rd or 4th strongest industrial economy in the world, being slightly behind Britannia, Germania, and Russia. Armed Forces The Gallic Armed Forces are divided into the Royal Army, Royal Gallic Navy, and Royal Air Force. The Royal Army in particular is viewed as one of the best in the world, many of its members having served in at least one action against the French Republic.
