French Guiana is actually officially called just Guiana and is an overseas department of France as is Guadaloupe, Martinique, Réunion and Mayotte. The small South American nation shares borders with the English/Dutch heritage Suriname and Portuguese-speaking Brazil and is the only country in the region, along with Suriname not to border a Spanish-speaking country.
