Photograph of Orleans, capital of the titular Duchy (circa 2018). Despite its precarious position in the middle of what was once France, the influx of trade, tourism and industry have allowed this beacon of civilization to once more shine through.

Its very existence, however, has also thrown a proverbial wrench into proposals for a reunited French Republic, with the old "Royalist question" once more out in the open.
 


AFP checkpoint near the boundary of Restricted Zone 02, surrounding what was once Subic Naval Base, in Central Luzon (circa 2019).
