Although ultimately a victor in World Wars I and II, France suffered extensive losses in its empire, wealth, manpower, and rank as a dominant nation-state. Nevertheless, France today is one of the most modern countries in the world and is a leader among European nations. Since 1958 A.D., it has constructed a presidential democracy resistant to the instabilities experienced in earlier parliamentary democracies.
