46. Let's try Eastern via MCI

The status of the French overseas departments to France would be analogous to Hawaii to the U.S. The collectives and territories (such as St Pierre & Miquelon and Polynesia) would be more akin to Puerto Rico, USVI and Guam (and Channel Islands and Manx to the U.K.) except the French territories and collectives are represented in the French legislature (as are French citizens.residing in non-French lands).

The Channel Islands are a weird historical and political relic as they owe their nominal allegiance to a pre-British figurehead.
