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.

Does French Guiana have a president or prime minister?

There is no president and no prime minister in French Guiana. French Guiana is a full part of France (despite being overseas, it is not a colony), so the president and Prime Minister are the ones in charge in mainland France.

As in any French region, a local council is elected but has no power over laws (neither civil, nor economical, nor penal law). Its purpose is to run schools and local matters like mending roads .

There is no governor either, but only a high ranking civil servant called "préfet" (prefect) who represents the government as in every other French département.
