France, officially known as the French Republic ('''French:''' ''République française''), and its predecessors. For those who don't know, France is a Romance country in Western Europe, with non-Romance ethnic minorities living on the borders: Celtic Brittany, Germanic Alsace and Lorraine (and a few other pockets), and some Basques in the extreme southwest (Gascony). The name "France" comes from the Germanic Franks, who ruled the region formerly known to the Romans as Gallia ("Gaul" was, despite popular belief, not what Romans called the region), but the people living there were not, for the most part, ever Germans. Religiously, or rather non-religiously speaking, France was estimated as the fourth most atheist country in the world by a 2012 study, with roughly 30% of non-believers.[[note]]the podium being held by by China, Japan, and the Czech Republic[[/note]] Another third of the population consider themselves "non-religious", with the rest being Catholics (about 13 million), Muslims (around 3 million), protestants (500 000) and small Buddhist and Jews minorities (150 000 each). However, since the French law forbids ethnical or religious census, these numbers are based on opinion studies and their results can vary wildly depending on the criteria.
