France: map

Today I got a postcard from France.

It shows a map of the country. France is a country in Western Europe bordering on Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Monaco, Spain and Andorra. By area it is the largest country of the European Union and the third largest in Europe. Also several overseas regions and territories are part of the state. The country's capital is Paris. It is one of the wealthiest and most influential countries in the World. It is one of the founding members of the European Union and the United Nations. Furthermore it is a member of the G7, the NATO and the OECD. France is also a permanent member of the UN Security Council, has the biggest army of the European Union and the third most atomic weapons in the World.
