Don't forget as well that French Guiana is a départment of France. In other words, French Guiana (along with Guadaloupe, Martinique, Réunion, and Mayotte) is to France what Hawaii and Alaska are to the US while Saint Pierre et Miquelon, French Polynesia, Saint Martin, and Wallis & Fortuna are similar in status to Puerto Rico, USVI, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands. New Caledonia is similar to American Samoa.
