Nice quiz! Note: French Guiana is to France as Hawaii is to America! France should most definitely be on this list.

Yup America should be considered part of the Pacific and South Pacific - for not only Hawaii - but also territories like Guam and American Samoa.

You can also use this analogy as an argument against "Cyprus is in Europe" by saying that by that statement, French Guiana is also in Europe.

Yes, and France IS in Africa (Mayotte, Réunion), and IS in North America (Saint-Pierre et Miquelon), and IS in central America (Guadeloupe, Martinique, St Bath, St Martin), and IS in Oceania, where I live (i'm in Tahiti)... whether you like it or not! And even a part of it is in Europe! ;-)

Well, not quite. Not in North America or Oceania. St Pierre and Miquelon, Tahiti, and a couple others are not overseas departments, but overseas territories—more like Guam or Puerto Rico than Hawaii. The oversees departments are: Reunion, Mayotte, Guadeloupe, Martinique, and French Guiana.

Overseas territories have a different status than overseas départements, but they're still an integral part of France, with citizenship, and voting rights and everything. We don't do second-class citizens (well, not anymore, anyway...).

Ramster is right that's not how it works

French speaking canada = Quebec = Area of Canada = Canada

And Canada is Not in EU.

Quebec is part of Canada.

Guiana is a department ("state") of France. It is analogous to Guam or Hawaii to France

Hawaii, but not Guam. Guam is a territory, Hawaii is a state.

Think of France like the UK, it is a sovereign nation containing many smaller countries so, France = France, French Guiana, Martinique, Corsica etc. and, the UK = England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Anguilla etc.

No, no, no, completely wrong. French Guiana, Martinique and Corsica are not countries, and Anguilla is most definitely not a country either.

Level 61

Anguilla is to UK as Guam is to USA as St Pierre et Miquelon is to France.

Wales is to UK as New York is to USA as Corsica is to France.

French Guiana is a part of France. Unlike say, the UK, the vast majority of France's oversea territories are counted as being official part of France.

If you want to get salty, take it up with the French government, not Jetpunk.

+2
Level 68
Dec 12, 2018
No, not the vast majority. There a five overseas departments (Reunion, Mayotte, Martinique, Guadeloupe, and French Guiana) and six overseas territories (St Pierre and Miquelon, St Bart’s, St Martin, New Caledonia, Wallis and Futuna, and French Polynesia). But I see your point. The UK, for example, has zero overseas departments and 13 overseas territories.

French overseas territories are an integral part of France, though, just with a different constitutional status than the départements.

Level 50
Dec 1, 2020
Well Schrodinger's cat is about the quantum physics of matter being in multiple antonymous states at once, but the Antarctic territories are just plain BS. I mean they overlap and everything, and still the research stations there aren't actually used specifically by the people who claim them. Also how the Fk did Norway get a claim there? I get France and the Uk still hold Colonial possessions near there, but Norway??? I mean somehow they have Bouvet Island and a sizeable portion of Antarctica claimed. anyway the claims are nonsense anyway since other than Argentina and Chile the Countries are all aligned with eachother.

Maybe they claim it by virtue of Amundsen's expedition being the first to reach the south pole?

It is French Guiana. I know, the alternative French spelling is Guyane, but as this quiz site insists that it is an English language quiz site (despite its acceptance of foreign place names as it chooses), the correct spelling would be Guiana.
