French Guiana

French Guiana is a neighbor of the South American countries of Brazil and Suriname. But as an overseas department of France, its currency actually is the European Union's euro. Questions typically refer to the country's infamous but now closed prison on Devil's Island; pioneering ecotourism by Maroon descendants of escaped slaves; and politico-economic challenges of illegal gold prospecting, high unemployment, and alleged favoritism to Hmong refugee settlers from Laos.
