Well, this will need to be updated early 2016, as there will be an administrative change in the number of regions, with agregations of some... Wait and see ;-)

I was trying St. Martin... Boy, I tried Vendee, Dordogne, Elzas, but apparently they are just geographical regions...

Vendée and Dordogne are "départements". There are 101 départements, several in each region. Vendée is in Pays de Loire, and Dordogne in Aquitaine. Elzas is probably Elsass, in alsacian dialect, and Alsace in french. Alsace is really a region (one of the smallest, with only 2 départements), but you mispelled it. I think St Martin is an overseas territory.

"Régions" does not simply mean "areas" here, but refers to a specific term. The equivalent of "name the 50 states of the USA".

Haven't the metro regions changed? As far as I know, some of them were merged, like both Normandies (now there's only one Normandy).

I didn't know about this reorganization. It's barbarous. How can you scrap regions like Champagne or Lorraine or Alsace or the Pays d'Oc? It's worse than the Local Govt Act 1972 in England and Wales, and that's saying something. The sooner it's reversed the better.

They still haven't got Brittany right. The historic capital Nantes/Naoned and the rest of the Loire-Atlantique departement has been stuck in Pays de la Loire since the regions were established.
