In that case, you should accept Dakota for America, and British North America for Canada. Holland is not a country.

True, Holland isn't a country, but it's where the majority of the population of the Netherlands lives. It's less comparable with calling America "Dakota" as it is with calling the UK "England" or "Britain".

were i live in the uk we call it holland as over here holland refers to both north and south holland so we call the netherlands holland or the netherlands if your more posh so in a way holland is a country its just another name for the country [usa america] [uk great britain] and in the older days [USSR russia]

You are missing something, and that something is that the Faroe Islands are not a sovereign nation.

Quiz suggestion: Find out what the latitude of the average square mile in a country is in relation to the North pole. Then, use this info to make a quiz. I would not know how to do this, so I'll give my idea to you.

So everybody seems to accept Ukraine is that far north as to make it on this quiz?! It's on the damn Black Sea, which makes it practically Mediterranian! Took me a bit to guess that one. And still it makes it further north than Mongolia. Yep, signing up for club "Mongolia, you are further north than that, right?".

Feb 15, 2015

Eh? It goes quite a way north from the Black Sea coast. Did you look at a map? The northern point of the Ukraine is clearly further north than the most northerly part of Mongolia.

The reason why Mongolia is so cold is because it is located on a plateau, so if that's why you thought it was that far north then it's a common mistake.

What kind of logic is this? USA and China are partly in the tropics, and Russia is on the Black Sea/Mediterranean as well. Ukraine is not that small and despite having nice warm beaches in summer, it has evry cold winters.

I think part of the confusion is that the Mediterranean is further north than one would think. NYC is south of Rome, and the beaches at Odessa are further north than Minneapolis or Montreal.

Go to Google Maps. Right click on the northernmost point in the Ukraine and left click 'What's here?'. It will display the latitude (the first number). You will notice that Ukraine's northernmost point is north of Mongolia's.

I love all the people disputing the answers to this, especially the 'But Mongolia is north of China!' crowd. Objectively that is not the case, Manchuria, specifically Heilongjiang, is more northerly. If you really don't believe it, Google Maps or Google Earth can display the latitude of any point. It's very easy to check.
