Free France in "The Last Article"Edit
By 1947, the United States had realised that its policy of non-interference in World War II had been a grave mistake and were backing the colonies of Free France. Although backed with American supplies and equipment, the war against the German backed Vichy French in Africa was not going well.
Free France headquarted itself in several former French colonies in the Pacific Ocean, the largest being Tahiti. Free France survived Germany's conquest of France in 1940 and established a government, flying the French tricolor flag with an added Cross of Lorraine.
Free France survived the Race Invasion of 1942, mainly because conquering it was not worth the effort of the Race, the United States, or Japan, which were the powers best suited for the conquest and which would have reacted unfavorably to imperialist tendencies on each other's parts. The result was that Free France was a lawless no-man's land, convenient for all parties whose activities thrived in such environments, including drug and ginger dealers.
When France was reconstituted following the Race-German War of 1965, it reabsorbed Free France.
