I see the equator goes through island groups. Why don't those count?

Ah! I spent ages trying to guess which island nation it was. I ended up missing Ghana.

I figured this out, but if you're a Maldivian fisherman from Huvadhu Atoll who regularly crosses the equator, you might not understand why that's not considered to be national territory. That sort of decision probably makes more sense for people from land-based countries than for countries such as the Maldives and Kiribati.

Tramp - Me, too, although I missed Gabon for the same reason, spending too much time trying to figure out what those two were.

I think it would be trickier and better if you hadn't given the meridian and equator line on the map.

Well, "equatorial" does mean, "on, at, or near the equator."
