People settled in present-day Frenca in 2643 BC. At that time, they were just a small tribe of Frencans. Merchants were owning stores near the sea, and the small tribe grew into a civilization, with paper and wheels. Merchants sold fruit, such as mangos and dried peaches near the sea. There was no formal leader, and sicknesses usually came, such as tuberculosis and pneumonia. In 2598 BC, Frenca established the Sarden Dynasty in 2598 BC, and lasted to 1777 BC. The first kings were successful, but King Charlie I was the last king, who was corrupt and caused the downfall. The monarchy was overthrown in a small war, and we then became the Empire of Larnegeta and that lasted from 1777 BC to 1223 BC. It was there that Frenca started to prosper. Trading started to start, and people started inventing things.

In 1222 BC, we became the Kingdom of Bourdes, and it lasted to 945 BC. The Kingdom of Bourdes was a small nation that failed to unite Frenca. After that, we were the United Empire of Surdane and that was a golden age that lasted until 766 AD. The golden age was due to trade with other countries, discovery of plants and some resources, and a military that repelled most invasions. In 766 AD, Surdane peacefully gave way to the Southern Surdane Empire, which was a famous and prosperous dynasty because it repelled the infamous Goryumans. Trade grew even further in this era, they had conquered more land then before, and people made marble statues, while art and culture flourished. Many famous works of art were painted, such as the Market in Bourdes, or Seaside in Andem. Food sources were rice, wheat, maize, potatoes, lettuce, celery, carrots, fish, chicken, cheese, peaches, mangoes, oranges, apples, and lychees.

It gave way to the Roaurmane Dynasty in 1240. That was a promising dynasty until the rulers were incompetent starting from Emperor Samuel of Roaurmane in 1567 (reigned 1567-1598). His reign near the Bourdes River made this tongue twister, The River Runs Rapid and Rampant with Corruption. The next emperors were all incompetent. Trade went down, silver prices went higher, they had a tariff, which made their economy worse than ever. Then, civil war broke out in 1662 and John Thoures started a republic in 1665.

The Republic of Frenca had a humble beginning. Sugar was being grown, and slavery was still here. But in the early 1700's, Frenca was struck with malaria. Frencans were very sick, making it lose 1 million inhabitants. Yellow fever soon spread in Andem and Bourdes due to trade, and the government fled to Geumier for a while. The President, then Marc Duvierette, resigned. This was a national catastrophe in Frenca, destroying more than 2 million lives. However, by 1715, Frenca was bustling again. The population grew back, and the industry recovered.

In 1750, Frenca fought with a neighbor for an area, called Fallonia. Fallonia was an northern province that was conquered in 1590 by the neighbor, Dongsa. Dongsa, a defunct nation, was a Dutch-speaking and Japanese-speaking nation, with a smaller economy and less people. Frenca fought a war with it until 1756, giving Frenca Fallonia, which is currently a province. Cities such as Bourdes and Geumier were gaining many people. Bourdes reached 120,000 and Geumier hit 100,000, with Andem at 58,000. In 1800, Frenca fought with Dongsa over another area, Alcasa. Famed for its hot springs, it was bordering Norf Coaste and Fallonia. Frenca fought a war with it, that caused 20,000 casualties, and trickery of Dongsa's soldiers. Now finally Frenca captured Alcasa, and the two nations would not go to war ever again, because it got conquered by another nation.

In the late 1700's however, people were discussing whether slavery was allowed. People were changing their stance, and the government always held referendums. The first few times, the government voted for slavery, but soon it became anti-slavery. The politicians that wanted slavery soon changed, and in 1808, Frenca abolished slavery. Then, in 1819, women started to fight for rights. They had suffrage until they got their rights. Women were either jailed, arrested, or even killed by police. The women didn't care. The woman then marched until finally, in 1829, Frenca was tired of suffrage. It granted rights to women. In 1845, Frenca found silver. This caused people to move to Cobalt City, the city with the most silver. Frenca's economy had another increase. In 1852, in Cobalt City AGAIN, people found coal and gold. People migrated to Cobalt City, becoming Frenca's second largest city for a short while. There is still gold and silver in Cobalt City in recently discovered locations. Cobalt City was also on the coast, stimulating trade.

Frenca soon prospered. The presidents did more, the economy shot up, Cobalt City became a major area, and more cities grew. But it was struck with malaria again in 1876. This time, since there were more people, it could be easily spread. Bourdes became infected badly, but areas like Cobalt City were hit hardest. Cobalt City, being on the south, had more mosquitoes. Cobalt City lost 15% of its population, due to emigration and malaria. In Geumier, however, it was hardly affected, Barely anyone had malaria, due to it's location near Mt. Geumier, the tallest mountain in Frenca.

Frenca was affected less by this outbreak, but Cobalt City was almost completely ruined. Trade fell, and people moved away, until finally, James H. Murselliani's government gave a trust fund to Cobalt City, restoring it back to the elegant and exquisite city it was. Frenca however, started a porcelain industry. The porcelain was good, and it was made in Geumier, and transported to Bourdes, Andem, and Cobalt City via rail. Frenca's economy grew even more, and telephones and telegrams were introduced to Frenca.

When automobiles were invented, Frenca did not have them yet. However, they were exported to Frenca for porcelain via Andem, and soon, Frenca started making cars, with brands like Sierra, Orangia, and Tartania. They are good cars, and they manufacture cars still today. In the modern age still, Frenca still was bustling, Cobalt City was not like other gold cities, and Bourdes struck 5 million people in 1930. In 1930 however, Frenca was hit with a recession, that was not severe, but lasted for a year. Trade declined, Cobalt City was considered useless at that time, and people got gloomy and depressed. However, people were happier next year, and the economy recovered, but other countries still didn't.

Frenca was a country that was not really involved in global affairs in that period, up until 1950. In 1950 the Frencans were worried by communism, and they stood up against it. They soon fought in wars against communist nations. Meanwhile, the economy was starting to increase, and so was population and life expectancy. They increased highly, but due to the wars, the economy rose slowly. By 1970, Frenca was making computers and CDs. In 1980, they made video games, and in 1991, the Cold War ended but Jen Jovoloski, the Prime Minister, shot the Queen of Partasanter, Prime Minister Jovoloski was executed, and Frenca and Partasanter fought wars, but Frenca won. Frenca's economy, however, rapidly increased by 1999, and the economy was growing quickly. Now, Frenca is currently a growing and pheonomenal nation. It participated in getting land from Fashiontopia's continents.

In 2010, the Republic had slowly lost support. A man called Louis Orleans del Bourbon told Andrew the Great to hand over the Presidency to him. Andrew was granted the spot of Prime Minister, and Louis changed Frenca into the Great Kingdom of Frenca. He is now King Louis I.

Geography:
Most of the nations are on lowlands, and there are rivers that run through Frenca and go into the Frencan sea. Dry land has sometimes been irrigated. Frenca enjoys warmer winters than other countries, usually at 50 degrees, while Mt. Geumier and Geumier have average temperatures in winter, about 40 degrees.

The region near Cobalt City occasionally floods. There are barely any tornadoes, but hurricanes usually strike areas such as Andem and Cobalt City.

The warmest temperatures are near Cobalt City, while the coolest is near Geumier.

Government:
The Frencan government is a Constitutional Monarchy, with the Frencan Democratic Party holding the most seats in Parliament, then the Republican-Socialist Party. Many elected presidents were from the FDP.
The states/provinces of Frenca are: Andem, Lacke, Norte Coaste, Souf Coaste, Bourdes, Geumier, Haures, Fallonia, Alcasa, Mourinjan, Kourine, Mezzamone, Heurmier, Graniem, and Beninsola
protectorates are: France-Bourbon, Auatris, and France and Bourbon
major cities are: Andem, Bourdes, Geumier, Gornier, Haures, Hourinio

Economy:
Most of the nation is employed in public industries, like Healthcare and Education. 30% work in the private industry, mostly doing Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. The public sector is based around Welfare, while the private sector is based around weapon making and automobile manufacturing.

GDP: $61,662 billion (61.6 trillion)
GDP per capita: $35,892

Transportation:
Frenca provides taxis, but buses are uncommon but still driven. The subway system is big, and it helps people commute. People don't usually ride trains. Many people own cars.

Language
The Frencan language has a 28 letter alphabet, a latin alphabet. The letters are:
A B C D E EU F G H I J K L M N O OU P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
When translated, it is still noun, verb, adjective, noun, or whatever the sentence's form originally was.
Ex.:
English: The cat ran for the shiny ball.
Frencan: De meow joun four the shouny boueule.
It is similar to the French language in pronunciation of some words, but it is mostly (97%) different from French.

If you want translations please ask.

History of the Language:
During the early 2400's BC, people wrote signs. During that time early Frencan developed. 3,000 years later, by the first Surdane dynasty, early Frencan was fully developed. Immigrants came and got integrated. As time passed, more characters were added to the language. In the Southern Surdane, the transition to Middle Frencan was fully apparent. Words were updated. Phonics and pronunciation changed. By the 1450's It had started changing to Late Middle Frencan, though by the middle of 16th century, it upgraded to early modern Frencan. Words became obsolete. Frencans had changed pronunciations and phonics, and some words were limited to little use. It was not until 1665 that modern Frencan started coming. It was a better and upgraded version of Early Modern Frencan. Since Frenca was a republic by 1665, many thinkers and writers pioneered Modern Frencan, and Modern Frencan developed quickly. Now, we speak Modern Frencan in our kingdom.
