Maybe change the Auckland hint to e.g. the largest city in New Zealand. Wellington is the capital, right?

…and also, "Yokohama" doesn't seem to work. Or maybe I just typed it wrong nineteen times in a row.

Either that, or this quiz has been around for a while - Auckland was the capital until 1865.

The city in Japan is called yokohAma not yokohOma. Also the Auckland thing. Good quiz otherwise.

There's a (very short) land border - basically the width of a causeway, if memory serves.

And it used to be part of Malaysia until expelled back in 1965--the only case I know of in which a country renounced sovereignty over a region that was not trying to secede.

A trawl through Wikipedia reveals that race riots in Singapore and demographic differences led to discontent on both sides. So, after just two years of unity, "the Malaysian Parliament voted 126 to 0 to expel Singapore from Malaysia with Singaporean delegates not present." Fascinating indeed.

I am from Singapore. The "land border" is artificial, basically a bridge, or what we call a causeway, joining both sides. We are an island.

Seamount sounds so obvious, yet I've never heard of it, interesting. Also completely clueless about Anatolia.

Seamounts are formed from volcanic activity, and either never reached the surface or were at one point volcanic islands.

I'd never heard of the Malagasy language until now. It's crazy that the language of Madagascar is related to languages from SE Asian islands and not African languages even though it is only 225 miles from Africa.
