“In the early 21st century, five French overseas entities - French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Mayotte, and Reunion - became French regions and were made part of France proper.”
CIA's The World Factbook (2013)5
“Scattered across the Indian Ocean, the enchanting Comoros islands are the kind of place you go to drop off the planet for a while. The Comoros are so remote even an international fugitive could hide out here. [...] Three independent islands have experienced almost 20 coups since gaining independence in 1975. In the last decade, however, the quarrelsome independent islands agreed to put their differences aside and fly under the joint banner of the Union des Comores. The fourth island, Mayotte, is an overseas territory of France, and differs from the other Comorian islands politically in that its people are French citizens governed by French law.”
As a territory of France I do not have many specific statistics for this territory in its own right.
