The nation of Nouvelle France, also referred to as Brazilea is a parliamentary republic and former Gaulish colony located along the northern coast of Atlantia. It is bordered by the nation of Nea Lefkosia to the west and south, and the nation of Brasil to the south. Nouvelle France was formed in 1885 encompassing the Gaul Republic's north Atlantian colonies and possessions, shortly after the Gaul Republic's defeat in war with Portugal.










History

Military

The military of Nouvelle France is largely adopted from and organized similarly to the former Gaulish military, and its colonial military stationed in the colony of Nouvelle France. The President of the Republic heads the armed forces, with the title "chef des armées" ("chief of the military forces"). The military of Nouvelle France is broken into two branches; the army and the navy.

Army

The French Army, officially the Armée de Terre (English: Land Army), is the land-based and largest component of the military of Nouvelle France. Just like the Marine Nationale, it is placed under the responsibility of the government of Nouvelle France. As of 1910 the army of Nouvelle France numbers about 205,000 active personnel and 1,500,000 reserve.

Navy

The French Navy, officially the Marine nationale ("National Navy") and often called La Royale, is the maritime arm of the military of Nouvelle France. It is largely based on the system used by the Gaul Republic to establish its colonial empire, using similar organization and procedures. Since its establishment in 1885 the navy of Nouvelle France has been steadily improved and expanded, utilizing its rich coastline and maritime traditions to establish a powerful regional trade fleet and military vessels to protect its interests.

Many early ships of the navy of Nouvelle France were inherited from the French or their colonial ports during the early stages of independence. Many other ships were also acquired after fleeing from Gaulish territory in Europe. Around the turn of the twentieth century the nation of Nouvelle France begin drafting plans for and constructing more modern and technologically adequate ships to replace or bolster these older models.
