France, officially the French Republic (French: République française) is a country located in Western Europe that is mentioned in AMC's The Walking Dead.

Pre-Apocalypse

France was a major power in world affairs with a long history and influential culture. Like the United States, France had a proficient military and a thriving scientific community.

Post-Apocalypse

"It was the French. [...] They were the last ones to hold out as far as I know. While our people were bolting out the doors and committing suicide in the hallways, they stayed in the labs till the end."
—Dr. Jenner[src]

Edwin Jenner mentioned that France was closest to finding a cure to the virus. Unlike the American Centers for Disease Control, where scientists left to save their families, themselves or committing suicide, French researchers were unwilling to leave their posts and were among the last operating research team in contact with the CDC. However Jenner never heard from them again after communications went down. He ascertained that the French power grid, still dependent on limited supplied fossil fuels, had failed. Eventually, France was overrun by the infected (this fate was confirmed by independent sources).
