I'm excited at mainland France's regional consolidations.

Most are now sizable enough to be significant in a prospective European federal system.
Somehow, it has to be a good reform.

I just saw from watching the news, people will very soon be voting for the new designations of the regions whose current names are too long to be convenient. Of course locals themselves will keep on making a little difference between former administrative regions for some time yet, like Alsace and Lorraine will still make some fun of one another, but I think outsiders will quickly forget.

As I said already, I think there are 2 upgrades left to be done.
Brittany + Pays de la Loire for sure, that could be named Greater Brittany.
And possibly Centre-Val-de-Loire + Île-de-France, if people from the former don't deny the Parisians. Lol
Ils ne savaient pas que c'était impossible, alors ils l'ont fait.
They didn't know it was impossible, so they did it.
That's partly what the Lord teaches about.
