Comment (by lunar):

 I think understanding why guards are useful is complicated and probably
 needs more than a couple of sentences. This is where opening the right
 page of the Tor Browser User Manual would be useful. Sadly, I've lost
 track on the latter.

 I don't like the “Learn more” approach as it's quite far from the Guard
 itself. I still like the suggestion I made earlier: having something like
 “France (, Guard)” with “Guard” hyperlinked.
