Guadeloupe is an archipelago located in the Leeward Islands, in the Lesser Antilles. It is the first overseas region of France, consisting of a single overseas department. As with the other overseas departments, Guadeloupe is also one of the twenty-six regions of France (being an overseas region) and an integral part of the Republic since 2007.

As part of France, Guadeloupe is part of the European Union; hence, as for most EU countries, its currency is the euro. However, Guadeloupe is not part of the Schengen Area. The prefecture and the capital of Guadeloupe is Basse-Terre. Christopher Columbus named the island Santa María de Guadalupe in 1493 after the Virgin Mary, venerated in the Spanish town of Guadalupe, in Extremadura.

Guadeloupe in The Two GeorgesEdit

Guadeloupe was a possession of the Holy Alliance.[1]

Guadeloupe in WorldwarEdit

Literary commentEdit

Guadeloupe's role in Worldwar is undefined. The Colonization map suggests that Guadeloupe is not a Race colony. However, as France is under German domination until 1965, it may be that Guadeloupe was under some sort of German oversight. The issue isn't addressed.
