Flag of France France, as one of the seven major powers, gets a unique national focus tree. It gets a rework with the La RésistanceLa Résistance expansion adding a non-alignedmonarchist sub-branch and expanded communistcommunist and fascistfascist sub-branches.

French national focus tree. Clicking on the branches leads to the appropriate section.

The French national focus tree can be divided into 5 branches and 7 sub-branches:

Devalue the Franc Branch
This branch offers the possibility to develop Metropolitan France and the overseas colonies, as well as add two more research slots.
Begin Rearmament Branch

They end with the shared focus Army Reform icon Army Reform which removes the starting national spirit Victors of the Great WarVictors of the Great War.
Form the Popular Front/Revive the National Bloc Branch
This branch develops French industry. The left side of the branch adds factories to various states, completely removes Inefficient Economy Inefficient Economy and leads to the communistcommunist sub-branch. The right side of the branch develops construction speed, manipulates party popularity, and leads to the fascistfascist and non-alignedmonarchist sub-branch. Both sides lead to the historical democraticdemocratic sub-branch of the focus tree and Intervention in Flag of Spain Spain decisions.
Invite Communist Ministers Sub-branch
This sub-branch allows France to become CommunistCommunist, gain manpower and political power. The Reconciliation section gives stability and political power. It leads to the Anti-Fascist coalition section which allies with neighboring or Balkan CommunistCommunist and DemocraticDemocratic nations and manpower. The Revolution to the Utmost gives war support and a civil war. It leads to the Loyalty to the Cause section which gives war goals against the Flag of United Kingdom United Kingdom, Flag of Spain Spain, Flag of Germany Germany and Flag of Italy Italy. Both the Reconciliation and the Revolution to the Utmost leads to the Loyalty to Moscow section which allows France to join the Comintern. This section and the Anti-Fascist coalition section leads to a focus that gives war goals against all neighboring FascistFascist nation.
Leftist Rhetoric Sub-branch
This sub-branch is only available if the La RésistanceLa Résistance DLC is not enabled. This allows France to become CommunistCommunist.
The Blum-Viollette Proposal Sub-branch
This sub-branch allows France to core Algeria, gain non-core manpower and compliance or lose the national spirit Full Employment Full Employment. Depending on the choice of the colonies, the French Union focus allows France to annex and core its colonies or increase resistance.

Utilize the Leagues Sub-branch
This sub-branch allows France to become FascistFascist, gain claims on various nations and make alliances with other European nations. The Latin Entente section allows France to ally with Flag of Spain Spain, Flag of Portugal Portugal and Italy for French Somaliland, gain claims on Flag of Greece Greece and war goals on Flag of Germany Germany, Flag of Belgium Belgium and the Flag of Netherlands Netherlands. The Towards a New Europe section allows France to join the Axis, gain claims and war goals on Flag of Belgium Belgium and Flag of Canada Canada. Both sections lead to war goals claims and subjugation on the Middle East.
The Council of Rambouillet Sub-branch
This sub-branch restores the French monarchy from either the House of Orléans (Orléaniste), Bourbon (Légitimistes) or Bonaparte (Bonapartiste). The Orléanist section gives war goals against Flag of Germany Germany and Flag of Italy Italy. The Légitimist section gives an alliance, an annexation or wargoal on Flag of Spain Spain.
