History

:Englishflag.jpg English France's history can be broken down into five distinct periods. The initial creation by Terra, then the short time James held the nation while election took place, Caeso's first reign, Someone_Better's France, then Caeso's second reign until Caeso stepped down and Optimus_Trajan took the throne. A whole civil war went on with the people of Britain and France. The government of Francia took over with leaders like Megliman and now CorbeauNoiraud/Thanamos. Still working on the details of the civil war.

:French.png French:L'histoire de France peut être décomposée en cinq périodes distinctes. La création initiale par Terra, puis le court laps de temps où James a tenu la nation pendant les élections, le premier règne de Caeso, la France de Someone_Better, puis le deuxième règne de Caeso jusqu'à ce que Caeso démissionne et Optimus_Trajan prenne le trône. Toute une guerre civile a éclaté avec les peuples de Grande-Bretagne et de France. Le gouvernement de Francia a pris le relais avec des dirigeants comme Megliman et maintenant Corbeau Noiraud/Thanamos. Toujours en train de travailler sur les détails de la guerre civile.

The era of the first kings (10/28/2018 - 01/06/2020)

Emperor MLGTerra (10/28/18 - 11/22/2018)

Terra was originally the founder of France. He made the nation during the early access period of TN. Before TN was released Terra began recruiting classic players to join and make towns for France. During the first few days of TN release, Terra helped form and finance many towns such as Lyon, Geneva, Caen, Toures. Terra ruled as a monarch but began to face unrest and calls for democracy. A high council of influential players was put into place to relieve the tension. Additionally, the towns of Bern, Geneva, and Zurich began to prepare to form Switzerland.

Emperor Caeso First Term (11/22/2018 - 12/22/18)

When Terra left he passed the nation down to James and amidst unrest, James put together an election. Caeso and GeneralRhombus helped James put together the election. Caeso, GeneralRhombus, Asher, .fter an initial round of voting Caeso and Rhombus were selected as the finalist and Caeso would beat out Rhombus to become the new king. Additionally,d ring this time Vwon and Mustache began fighting with 32Gold. Caeso's main goal was to keep France together. Towns from all over France were talking about leaving as it seemed the nation may fall apart.

Under his term, the French Subway was built (later abandoned and demolished due to a better alternative). He also had the first French marketplace constructed by Someone_better in Paris for various players in France to sell their merchandise. Chest shops were in constant change at the time so it wasn't as effective as it could've been.

King SB (12/22/18 - 03/22/19)

Caeso eventually went to America to create a French colony, leaving SB in charge while he was away.

Under his term the ice roads were constructed, this is evident due to the discussion of ice roads dating back to his time in office in the French discord.

Emperor Caeso Second Term (03/22/19 - 05/10/19)

Only 3 months later, Caeso returned from the unsuccessful American colony to France, where leadership was handed back to him by SB.

Emperor Trajan (05/10/19 - 01/06/2020)

Caeso became busy with personal stuff and so passed on the crown to the then-treasurer Optimus_Trajan, resulting in Trajan becoming the second Emperor of France. During the beginning of Trajan's reign, EarthMC was undergoing great demographic changes as part of the start of the Flooding era. During this period, France experienced a boom as incredible architectural structures such as the Palace of Versailles and Capitolium were constructed. France also experienced incredible economic growth through the renovation of Paris and subsequent creation of the French marketplace, as well as the implementation of a tax to help fund the growing state.

In the realm of politics, France began to secure the metropolitan area of France and grew its borders out to the river Rhine, northwest Italy, Switzerland and parts of Belgium and the Netherlands. Beginning with the collapse of the Roman Empire due in part to the French-Spanish ultimatum, France was able to gain a strategic foothold in Italy and eventually recover the city of Lyon, which had previously been occupied under the name Lugdunum. Similarly, following the dissolution of Perpignan, France was able to regain control over much of its Mediterranean border which had been lost for nearly a year,. France saw the formation of the Netherlands, the Principality of Monaco and Southpole. Ice roads were slowly moved underground, and the formation of various, now prominent, towns such as Nice, Bitche, and Beaufort along with further development and reconstruction of other towns such as Saint-Brieuc, Toulouse, Nantes, Montlucon and Monaco occurred. Changes also came to tOn the he regional structure, creating independent regions governed by a noble to aid in governing and maintaining France's growing territory.

The Great Civil War (14/03/2021-18/02/2022)


Europa Pact War (07/09/2021- Ongoing)

On September 7th, 2021, the Europa Pact declared war on France, starting the Europa-France War. The declaration of war was impulsed by border violations from France on foreing claims.

The Europa Pact has voted to delcare war on France due to their many border violations on their ally's lands. For months have we tried to diplomatically restore the agreed on French-German border, but were met with even more violating towns such as in GRE and Spain. Our "ally" has been pretending to be our enemy for way too long, it is time to do the same.

The same day, MegaliMan, the King of France, sent a response on the France Discord declaring that the war didn't mean anything.

The time has come for France to pursue her own destiny, forge her own alliances, and secure her own place in the world. France is now freed from the shackles of the Europa Pact, their alliance a tomb built to encase us in our time of shame, from which we emerge liberated, unbound by their treaties designed to keep us down. They may think that their declarations of war mean anything, but we have all seen that the Europa Pact is a dysfunctional organisation incapable of nothing more than empty threats and unfulfilled ultimatums.

Megaliman also anounced the temporal end of the French Civil War, ending with the alliance of France and Francia to fight the Europa Pact. However, on September 17th, Francia declared that they never were allies and that they would side with the Europa Pact on the war.

Transportation

Map of all French Iceroad Connections.

Outdated, Ice roads are banned in France now because it's ugly as f.

France is one of the most developed nations on EarthMC, and its transportation network certainly reflects this fact. It has a relatively large and dense ice road network, boasting multiple interlinked highways which can transport players quickly and easily from town to town, and if need be, as far as South Africa and Eastern Europe. Within its extensive network are over 20 towns, 22 operational stations, and 18 unique ice road lines. The success of France's ice roads is apparent as it enables unparalleled ease of transport, helps to facilitate important exchanges of commerce and allows rapid deployment of French troops throughout France and beyond. Its usefulness has inspired many similar ice road networks across the server and constantly attracts many new players to the nation.


Now The Ice Roads became underground, to connect cities even faster. But the aerial network is still owned by the private road company BBK Road

Military

Kingdom of France doesn't have a permanent army. During war time, the king calls the banner or "ost" where every noble man and knights (elite fighters who dedicated their life in the art of fighting and war) must asnwer the call and follows the king. Private armies are allowed and nobles mans can calls their own armies of knights and mercenaries.
