France is the third largest country in Europe, and its inhabitants account for about 9.03 percent of Europe's population. France's population density is about 306 persons per square mile. This hexagonal-shaped nation stretches between the Mediterranean Sea in the south and the English Channel on the north. Much of France consists of flat, fertile plains and hills. The high Pyrenees form a natural border with Spain to the southwest, while the Alps rise along France's eastern borders with Italy and Switzerland.
