I wonder what the actual area of the Philippines is: on wikipedia total area is less than land + water and exactly 300,000 km2 is clearly an approximation. what about adding map?

Adding a map would make this quiz too easy.

Agree that adding a map would make the quiz too easy. However, since some of the answers are island nations, It would be helpful to know if the areas given are total area, or are limited to land area.

Land area, I believe. Otherwise, Kiribati would have been to be added between Australia and Mexico (3.5 mio. Sq.km). Oh Glorious Nation of Kiribati!

An interesting variant might be: longest coastline on said ocean. Of course then you get into what seas are considered part of the ocean, but it looks like you are being generous if Thailand is included.

Because the only thing separating the two oceans is the inky dinky isthmus of Panama.
