France is the most populous nation in Europe. It is a democratic nation abutting Catatania, Belgium, Luxembourg, Duchland, Switzerland, Rhone, Monaco, and Liguria. France has long been a populous nation, and, taking the lead from Tuscany, became the foremost nation in the world in which to learn the arts, including architecture.


Note: The French government does not take dietary, ethnic, or religious counts during the census. However, various other organizations have estimates that usually agree for the most part, and these are listed below. Also, all of these statistics are for "Metropolitan France", that is, not including its non-European regions.

France has not been very consistent over time when it has come to religion. Originally very Catholic, Catharism from Occitania flooded in during the 14th and 15th centuries, though not eclipsing Catholicism. More recently, Freethought (that is, atheism and agnosticism) has become the majority. However, although many churches do not have full crowds of worshippers, they are still kept up very well and many attract tourists from all over the world.
