Le Pays Réel (French; The Real Country) was a Catholic-Fascist newspaper published by the Rexist Movement in Belgium. Its first issue appeared on 3 May 1936[1] and it continued to be published during the Second World War. It was briefly edited by Victor Matthys. While the Pays Réel remained the main paper of Rex, it remained just one of several published by the group, or subsumed under Rexist control, during the war.

The newspaper's title derives from the writings of Charles Maurras, a French nationalist, who distinguished between a pays réel - rooted in the realities of life - locality, work, trades, the parish and the family - from the "pays légal (Legal Country) which he cast as artificially imposed on the "real".
