Until recently, France was like the UK in simply disenfranchising citizens after they had lived abroad a certain period. This is far worse than the US, but now they're taking positive steps to address a changing, more interconnected world. I would love to see something like this for US expats, but I doubt it will happen any time soon (and I'm unsure if our Constitution would allow this, particularly since expats are not counted in the Census).
