"; the highest single drop waterfall Kaieteur Falls in Guyana;"

Shouldn't it be: "; the widest single drop waterfall Kaieteur Falls in Guyana;"

French GuianaEdit

French Guiana is not a non-sovereign area like Falklands, it's fully a part of France and France is a sovereign country. It's a French region and not an autonomous territory or something like that. France is a unitary republic, not a federal state and after the fall of French colonial empire, French Guiana chose to become a part of the «French central state». In France there is a devolution system only for overseas collectivities and New Caledonia. French Guiana is not an overseas collectivity. In comparison with UK, French Guiana is like a County of England from a London view, and New Caledonia is like Scotland from a London view.--Monsieur Fou (talk) 15:26, 11 November 2016 (UTC)

The most important thing is missing: A political mapEdit

The most important thing is missing: a political map of all countries of South America. This would be the first thing I'd expect, but it is not existing in the article. --Tomakos (talk) 20:13, 2 March 2017 (UTC)

well, that would be good, feel free to add one! Cheers!.--AlfaRocket (talk) 20:08, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
