Ask the Editors: Territories, Colonies, and Dependencies

Updated July 24, 2020 | Infoplease Staff

The Question:

I tried to find the two foreign dependencies for the 12 countries of South America, but you didn't have it listed. Can you help me?

The Answer:

There are no dependencies for any South American countries. We double-checked our sources just to make sure.

Here is a link to our Territories, Colonies, and Dependencies chart which lists all the non-self-governing territories that are under the jurisdiction of another country in the world.
