France was a country in Europe before the Great War.


In 2060, the oil fields in the Middle East ran dry. Both the European Commonwealth and the Middle Eastern powers were reduced to ruin with no victor.[Non-canon 1] The European Commonwealth dissolved into bickering, quarreling nation-states fighting over the world's remaining resources.[1]
