Geography of Cayenne

The Kingdom of Cayenne is a small micronation enclaved by the American state of California. The area of the micronation is roughly 0.011 km2 (0.004 mi2), and includes a winding creek located along its northern border.

Flora and fauna

Many species of both plants and animals found in Cayenne are not native to the area. A considerable portion of its territory is dense forest, predominantly made up of invasive eucalyptus and Brazilian peppertrees. Additionally, Canary Island date palms can be found throughout much of Cayenne intermixed with various pittosporum trees. The most prominent native species is the coast live oak. In more cultivated areas, fruit trees such as lemons and avocados can be found, along with various ornamental plants such as clivias, hibiscus, and various species of ficus.

Environmental issues

Invasive plant species pose a significant risk to Cayenne as well as the surrounding area. The ice plant, Carpobrotus edulis, is a species of succulent which is extremely prevalent towards the eastern border of the country. Fast-growing eucalyptus trees have dominated much of the land. Such plants have impacted accessibility to much of the northern border of the country.

Administrative Divisions

Cayenne is a unitary state, although it has one special municipality.
