Vichy State, 1940-1944

�tat Français (French State) was the legal successor of the Third Republic. After the defeat of the French army in June 1940, the MPs massively (all but 80) voted full powers to Philippe P�tain. The French State was under total German control but attempted to maintain the fiction of an independent state, with a French administration, especially for police and justice.
�tat fran�ais is also called �tat de Vichy or gouvernement de Vichy, after the spa city of Vichy where the MPs and the government "exiled". Vichy was far enough from the front and had a lot of facilities, therefore P�tain's regime set up there.
