France

The Eiffel tower, Palace of Versailles, and the Louvre, are only a few places that make Paris and France one of the most popular destinations in the world to live. Its fine cuisine as well as the fact that cooking and eating are an integral part of the French lifestyle and culture makes the country popular so it is not a surprise that it is one of the most populated countries in the European Union. Whilst the citizens of France enjoy a high standard of living, and the country performs well in international social rankings of health care, education, and human development, taxation is high.

As the largest country in the European Union, France has both an efficient farm sector and an advanced industrial economy. The key activities include automobile manufacture, information technology, chemicals and pharmaceuticals, aerospace, electronics, and fashion.

The Home of Mona Lisa has a progressive income tax legislation similar to most European countries. The taxable revenue is divided into two or more shares, dependent on the size of the family. As a result of the high level of social services taxes are high compared to western countries but comparable to northern Europe.
