The President of the Republic is elected by a popular vote every 10 years, the President holds the office of President of the Republic and is head of state. Head of the executive branch, The President entertains foreign visitors, dignitaries, host foreign leaders, and visit other nations. The President has to sign legislature for it to become law and can suspend the Assemblée Nationale. 

• The Assemblée Nationale is the legislative body of the Republic. The Senat acts as the upper house of the French Legislative Body, however, does not have any law passing rights. This was caused by a popular referendum in 1992 which redesigned the French Political Landscape. The Assemblée Nationale has 557 members, and the Senat has 170 members. The Assemblée Nationale can draft bills and comment and redesign laws from the Senat. The Senat however, as an “unelected” body, ratifies Foreign Treaties, Can hold hearings on the Government, inquiry on the spending of the Government, and acts as an independent oversight of the Republic. Collectively they are called the of the Congress of French Parliament.

• Each state has their own Assemblée Nationale, which can also pass laws. The Governors implement these laws (which are still reviewed by the High Courts and President). Each state has a State Police to administer the law, the issue edicts and are responsible for the safety and lawfulness of their regions.

Mayors follow laws passed by the State Assemblée Nationale, and respond to edicts and run their cities. They meet in Regional Councils every 2 weeks with their respective Governor to discuss state affairs and matters as a collective body.

 

The People vote every 5 years for a President in 2 round popular elections. The President must win at least 50% of the vote, if not a second round is held between the top two contenders. The Prime Minister is elected by the Assemblée Nationale, usually from the Majority in the Assemblée Nationale. The People also vote for Mayors every 2 years, Governors every 4 years. The Mayors and Governors as well as other members of government vote for their region's members of senators, thus forming the Senat. 

The Lower Assemblée Nationale has all legislature power, allowing it greater influence on politics. The Upper Senat, however, handles a majority of approvals, inquires, and investigations as they are the unelected body of Parliament.  

 

The President replaces a fallen or retired Justice, and all Justices are appointed by the Minister of Justice and Senat Judiciary Committee. 

 

The Assemblée Nationale is elected by a popular vote with each Party getting the percentage of their votes in seats. In Municipals, a 50% majority is required to be elected, if no clear winner is declared then a second round is held between the top 2 candidates.

France is a Mixed Economic System. The Government heavily invests in the Public sector and has often also invested in promising private companies. Companies moving to France enjoy 15% Tax reduction for 15 years. Being able to keep jobs in the Secondary Sector has been no easy task, but the government opens new infrastructure programs hiring many people. The Government also puts people in Secondary jobs [construction, mining, forestry, etc] on the top of lists for Government Programs, and have access to top quality education free of charge. In modern trends, people in Secondary Sector jobs have decreased to roughly 5% of the total labor force. Because of the global trend in decline towards these jobs, the government has increased spending towards advertising the free education policies the government employees so that people in these sectors can be put into skilled labor.

Health Care

The State runs a health care system called Couverture Maladie Universelle or CMU. In the CMU, all French Citizens may visit all hospitals and clinics in the country. Every citizen has a CMU card issued at the age of 18. Before 18 children are linked to their parent's accounts. Although health check-ups must be paid in cash, the Government reimburses the CMU account between 70-80% of the cost. Treatments are paid for by the Government, and the CMU account is always topped off by the Government. However, the CMU costs the country a huge chunk of its GDP. Roughly 400 Billion Krone go to Health Care. However, french people enjoy some of the best healthcare, and the most healthy and longest lives.

Established in 1947, the CMU, everyone must pay for mandatory Health Insurance in the form of Payroll Tax, Income Tax, and other taxes such as Alcohol and Tobacco tax. There are 5 types of Insurance, General, Independent, Agricultural, Student, and Public Servant. The CMU covers things from In and Outpatient, Specialists, Dentists, Diagnostic, Prescription Drugs, Medical Device, Mental Health, Medical Transportation, House Call, Maternity Benefits, and Child Care. They also have a health insurance plan for the unemployed, and others who may not be able to obtain one from their work.  Although Doctors make less money compared to other nations, they receive free medical training, income and social security tax reductions and government support.  Doctors who do use the Government System have funds and budgets set by the Ministry of Health, who also decided the numbers of beds, what equipment used, and set up procedures.  The costs of health are really low, with a check in costing roughly 1 Franc, a night in the hospital could cost up to 18 Franc, and medicine costs less than half a krone.

Roughly 56% of doctors in France are self-employed and a majority use Government systems

Companies are also unable to fire pregnant or military reserves.

The RAMC provide medical services for all members of the French armed Forces and their families during wartime and peace. The RAMC has grown by 5,000 members since 2000 and has received 40 Million Kronen’s in funding. While a Majority of the RAMC is unarmed medical officers, an increased number of the RAMC have become Armed Combat Medics. Roughly 43,000 are medical officers while 8,000 are Armed Combat Medics. The RAMC operate The King Caspar Armed Forces Hospital, Princess Marry Special Forces Hospital, The Federal Hospital of Berlin, and Prince Henry Naval Medical Station. 

The RAMC does not carry a Regimental Colour, although it has a Regimental Flag; nor does it have battle honors, as elements of the Corps have been present in almost every war the military has fought. Because it is not a fighting arm (i.e. it is non-combatant), under the Geneva Conventions, members of the RAMC may only use their weapons for self-defense. For this reason, there are two traditions that the RAMC perform when on parade:

• Officers do not draw their swords – instead, they hold their scabbard with their left hand while saluting with their right.

• Other ranks do not fix bayonets.

Although it is yearly reviewed by the French Economic Commission, a non-partisan commission headed by the Senat and the Civil Economic Forum. The French GDP as of 2002 was 4,880,519,573.312 Trillion Francs or 4.88 Trillion Francs. It was reported in 2001, that the French Government owned 300 billion Francs worth of investment and real estate across the globe and in foreign corporations. Oil development and cultivation have pooled 3 billion francs a month from the Sufi Order and investments in technology and housing in the United States are worth some 12 billion Francs in assets. The French research private sector has seen an exponential growth with projects in Jerusalem, Norfolk, and even Hanoi becoming centers of capital for French investment and development. Some 50 million Francs have been invested in Austria and the Regime while 3 billion Francs have been invested in China alone. With a major focus on Automobiles, Military Equipment, Steel, Aircrafts, Agriculture and Foods, Technical equipment, Perfume, Jewelry, and Wine the French economy has a well balanced Economic Policy. The major industries of Services have flourished in recent years with some 80 million people visiting France in 2001 alone. 

Foreign Relations

Under the Korczak Administration, diplomatic relations have been opened with eleven out of sixteen of the world's nations. The French Government opened its first ever Open Borders Agreement or the  Pacte ouvert d'amitié et de faternité with Hungadada. Paris and Port Royalty have agreed to open their 623 km border to be crossed freely. 

Earlier in 2002, France joined it's very own defensive, social, and economic pact when it ratified the accords in a 130-40 vote in the Senat. The Pact opened France to visa-free travel to Resoria, Socialist Ottoman Empire, and The First Order. In the Agreement, Free City was discussed and given a green light for the French Embassy to be located there and for the arrival of some 300 French visitors annually. 

France's Foreign Ministry issued Travel Bans on North Africa and Germany with Travel Warnings issues for The SoE, Grand Sufi Order, Austria, The North American Continent. Travel Guidelines were issued on The Regime, The First Order, and Resoria to ensure citizens were aware of the complex situations and of course the dangers of travel. 

France opened it's latest Embassy in The Capital of Resoria following the opening of Diplomatic Relations.

In 1992 mandatory conscription was reinstated, with a minimum of 18 Months with the exception of seeking a higher education; in which you will have to join the armed forces after your education, as well as those seeking a professional military career. Military service is a requirement for Government positions as well. Both Women and Men are required to be apart of the Military. As of 2004 Military conscription is still mandatory amounting 2,100,000 Reservists in the French Strategic Homeland Defence on civilian-duty with the ability to be called up in 72 hours; and 2,000,000 reserves on civilian-duty with the ability to be called up in 96 hours.
