Yep, a French-analogue. Some nations will fit the campaign better than others and therefore be changed less; this is one of them.
That's a good point about the navy. So far I've been using the subtitles that are standard for campaign setting books, but I added a Colonies tab (though I think "Colonial Holdings" is a better name...). As this campaign setting has a certain focus on overarching wars and such, I should add an Armed Forces section that describes the state of the nation's army.
