Actually, yes they are. They AREN'T sovereign states. But, to clear up confusion, I changed the group title to "Sovereign States and Countries that make up the British isles." Sorry about the confusion, I should've been more specific.

They still aren't countries, they may be "countries", but only in a very local sense of that word. Otherwise, you'd have to count German Länder as "countries" as well, since Land is the exact translation of country.

Actually, the name British Isles refers to the islands of Great Britain, Ireland, and over 6,000 other islands. Look it up :)

I'm surprised that nobody's brought up the fact that the "Scandinavian Countries" which you've mentioned aren't actually Scandinavian. Scandinavia is the region of Europe which consists of only Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. The group of five countries to which you are referring are the "Nordic Countries."

The majority of the population in places such as Faroe Islands and Iceland, places not generally called Scandinavian, are descended from places such as Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. The Kalmar union (former) included Denmark, Sweden (including Finland) and Norway, including Norway's oversee territories, such as parts of Greenland, Iceland, and some other islands. Though, I am still pondering whether I should change it. It is a good idea, and I was wrong in some ideas, but I do want to see if more people comment about it. Thanks for commenting though.

I always heard that only Denmark, Sweden and Norway are Scandinavian. Finland doesn't really belong there (they have a non-European language, they belonged to Russia) and Iceland is just too far away. Wikipedia also says it's "the three kingdoms of Denmark, Norway, and Sweden".

Being Danish myself, I'm pretty sure that Scandinavia consists only of Denmark, Norway and Sweden. Our culture and languange are very similar to each other and the ties between the countries are very strong.

Finland never belonged to Russia. It was a separate, autonomous grand duchy under the Russian czar (who ruled through the governor-general of Finland). But Finland had it's own laws, it's own senate, it's own currency, domestic policy, national sports teams etc. No other area ruled by the czar had this autonomy, all other areas fell under the Russian czardom.

And yes, Scandinavia is only Sweden, mainland Denmark and mainland Norway, whereas the Nordic countries also include Finland and Iceland. Greenland and the Faroe Islands are also included, since they belong to Denmark, and Svalbard and Jan Mayen, as they belong to Norway.

Should Soviet Union not also work for USSR? Also there were 51 Original UN members, the five mentioned here were only the permanent members of the Security Council when the UN itself was founded.

I wish there were some way of specifying that the China that was an original UN member is not the same government that we now call China. The current "Chinese Government" (i.e. Mainland China) wasn't recognized by the UN until 1973, when the "former China" was turned into being "just Taiwan" and completely unrecognized by the UN. How's that for being a "permanent member"?

Couldn't get the quiz to accept Russia or Soviet Union. I suppose Russia is probably incorrect, but could you accept Soviet Union?

Lake Ontario, Lake Huron, Lake Erie and Lake Superior are half in Canada and half in the U.S.A. They should correctly be called North American Great Lakes, not just American.
