French Guiana

French Guiana is an overseas department and region of France, located on the northeastern coast of South America. It is bordered by Brazil to the east and Suriname to the west. The official language is French, and the currency is the Euro. The population of French Guiana is around 300,000 people.

French Guiana's economy is largely based on agriculture, fishing, and forestry, but it also has some small-scale mining, especially for gold and bauxite. The economy also relies on subsidies from France, which accounts for a large portion of the budget.

Tourism is a small but growing sector, driven by the region's diverse culture and natural beauty, including rainforests, beaches, and rivers. The European Space Agency has a spaceport in the territory, called Guiana Space Centre, which generates some jobs and income.

The unemployment rate in French Guiana is high, and poverty is widespread, particularly among the indigenous population and recent immigrants. The region also has a high level of crime, which affects the economy and the overall well-being of the population.

French Guiana is an overseas department of France, so it is subject to French law, and its residents are French citizens. The country has representation in the French National Assembly and Senate, but it does not have representation in the European Parliament. The region is also part of the European Union, which means that it is subject to EU rules and regulations.... Show more
