France should definitly be on this quizz. French Guyana is NOT an oversee territory, it's an oversee region. There is only small differencies to adapt the law to local precises circonstances but thats all. A baby born in a Cayenne is as french as one born in Paris.

Denying that France is part of Europe and South America is like saying that the european part of Turkey is not turkey, or that Alaska is not really part of the USA.

It's just wrong.

France extends on 2 continents, that's it. No need to cut a needle in 3...

By this logic, it extends on 3 continents? Île de la Réunion in Africa? Or even 4? French Polynesia in Oceania?

Yup. Even 5 if you count North and South America as separate continents. And 6 if you recognize our claim in Antarctica.

Falkland Islands and French Guiana should be on here. They are part of South America despite both being Quasi-independent overseas territories of European nations.
+4
Level 75
Jun 29, 2018
Once again, the Falklands are an overseas territory, but French Guiana is an overseas department, not the same thing. French departments are similar to US states, not territories, and besides Europe, French departments are also located in North America, South America, and Africa. France is one of the countries located on the South American continent, but as with other countries on this site which are located on more than one continent (such as Turkey and Russia) only one continent is chosen, and in this case FG is politically included with Europe even though it is geographically located in South America. It is similar to the US state of Hawaii which is politically considered part of North America even though geographically it is located far away - some say in the continent of Oceania.

Level 73
Jun 29, 2018
Great clarification by ander there. Although the simple reply to your question is that this quiz consider only sovereign states. As you said, the falklands are a territory, and FG are politically part of Europe, as ander explained. So neither of these qualify to be "Countries of South America"

If someone wonders wether 'X' part is South or is North, well, whoever that is I'm gonna explain it to you. This quiz, as many others, follow the law of JetPunk's borders. That means that Panama is not split into two, Trinidad is North American and no country having a territory or constituent country in some part of the continent is included in the quiz (France and the UK).

Missing France. I think it's clear that all those years ago people were rightly complaining that French Guiana shouldn't be an answer, it should just be France. It's not an overseas territory like the Falklands, it's just a part of France.
