Technically, you should also add Aruba, Curacao and St. Maarten. They are part of the kingdom of the Netherlands, but there independent countries inside the kingdom, and they are all (on) islands.

Let's sum it up: Islands are confusing!!!

Level 60
Jul 10, 2020
How are they confusing? A pre-schooler can tell you, what is and isn't an island. It's just that Jetpunk is full of wanabe intelectuals that have an urge to try to sound clever. :-D
+1
Level 58
Nov 4, 2020
True.
+1
Level 64
Oct 13, 2021
Correct. Rather than saying good quiz, and accepting all the answers are all applicable, people are trying to make themselves sound cleverer than the creator by letting them know all the other 'islands' they missed. When actually it just makes it look like they can't read the simple instructions.

I see Australia's status has changed. I read all the comments (again) expecting to see something about the change but there isn't anything. Seems like a good solution though to settle the debate. Is the number really area (Sq Km?) or population as it implies in the comments?
+1
Level 65
Dec 11, 2014
I'm gonna guess that it was listed by population previously and was changed to area so the static entry of Australia, now at the top of the list, would be less awkward.

Yes but it is not recognized widely. Niue and The Cook Islands are on Islands too, yet they are not widely recognized.
+1
Level 58
Nov 4, 2020
But again, Taiwan isn't recognized amply and still makes it this quiz. It's NOT a country. Like Macau or Hong Kong, it's an autonomus territory of China, such as Greenland for Denmark.
+1
Level 48
Oct 13, 2021
It really just depends on your opinion
+2
Level 48
Oct 13, 2021
Its really quite straightforward. Jetpunk uses its own set of countries, not necessarily ones agreed upon by everyone, because that would be impossible.

The 196 countries on the Countries of the World quiz, that gets you the 196 Badge, is the same set of countries used by - as far as I can tell - every featured Jetpunk quiz. This never changes no matter which quiz you do.

Learn the 196 countries in that quiz before commenting about which countries should or should not be included in a quiz.

Level 25
Jan 15, 2015
What about Cyprus?
+1
Level 76
Jan 16, 2015
Cyprus doesn't count because it borders Dhekelia and Akrotiri, both part of the UK and therefore somehow not an island. Or maybe it does and you missed it ;-).
+2
Level 37
Nov 30, 2016
No man maybe an island, but Cyprus IS an ISLAND.
+6
Level 74
Dec 3, 2019
Cyprus is on the quiz. A common misconception is that the British Overseas Territories are integral parts of the United Kingdom, but they are not. They are British territories but not part of the UK. Even if they were (and they are not), it doesn't change the fact that Cyprus is entirely located on an island.

no matter what I am always missing one--and a different one every time. Eventually, I will memorize the columns--then I will get them all. This sucks. Something like 6 in a row....I know them all but leave one out and can't remember it for anything.

I'm glad you used square kilometers, but you should clarify that with a note or such.

Good quiz anyway!

Level 54
Dec 22, 2016
Sort of. As far as I know, at low tide there is some sort of land connection between India and Sri Lanka. Maybe.
+1
Level 67
Nov 27, 2019
Only after you have gone back a few centuries with a time machine. There a bits and pieces but nothing crossable no matter how low the tide is. That connection was severed in the 15th century.
+1
Level 14
Mar 11, 2015
as far as i know sri lanka is not an island it is a penninsula

Level 65
Mar 28, 2015
Sri Lanka is a country that is directly below India but still surrounded completely by water.

Level 38
Jul 24, 2015
Prior to 1480, you would have been right... Google: "Adam's Bridge"
+1
Level 83
Dec 21, 2016
To be fair, some quizzes consider a land border between India and Sri Lanka...
+1
Level 67
Nov 27, 2019
Yes and they are all wrong. Usually he does his research very well, but this error the quizmaster has made over and over. (I think even mentioning in comments that it had a landbridge, but that simply is not correct).

Good to see that in this quiz it is correct, hopefully the other quizzes are finally fixed now too. Errors spread like wildfire people think it is true because they have seen it somewhere then they are adamant to others so they believe it too. So very quickly 90% of the people (in a certain setting; school/community/country) can believe something that is totally incorrect.

That is why rumours are so nasty, once a lie is out there people have a hard time letting it go. Even with proof..

+1
Level 74
Dec 3, 2019
So? Sri Lanka is still entirely located on an island.
+1
Level 74
Dec 3, 2019
No, and it's spelt 'peninsula'.

For the Caribbean, it's all the dinky ones for me. Bahamas, Cuba, Jamaica, Haiti and the DR I have no issue with... so I had to come up with "the three saints" (Kitts, Lucia and Vincent), then A-B-D-G-T, Antigua, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, Trinidad.

Level 25
Jul 11, 2015
why did you give us Australia?
+1
Level 58
Jan 24, 2016
Because if he didn't, people would argue about whether or not they had to answer it on the grounds that it's sometimes considered a continent in itself, which would make it not count as an island (otherwise everything is an island).
+1
Level 76
Jul 26, 2015

If you want to be the person who argues continents are islands, you should at least know that Africa is not connected to Eurasia due to the Suez Canal.

I have no idea what you are talking about. All of these countries are on islands. If you are talking about Australia, that is why it is already filled in so this won't be a problem.

The land area of Ireland is only 85,000km2, Iceland is a lot bigger than Ireland at 103,000km2. Please correct this. they are not the same size.
+2
Level 57
Dec 21, 2016
Actually, since this quiz gives the area of the country, it should only be about 70,000 square km; 85,000 square km is the size of the entire island (which includes northern Ireland)
+2
Level 33
Aug 8, 2017
Northern Ireland is Irish.
+3
Level 70
Nov 5, 2017
False. North Ireland is a part of the United Kingdom, not a part of the nation of Ireland.
+1
Level 66
Nov 13, 2017
I mean, it's still Irish. But, yeah, Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom. Either way both countries are on islands. Just Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom's area.

Level 28

Wait a minute, East Timor is not an island because it is bordered with Indonesia in Timor Island
+4
Level 71
Apr 1, 2016
The quiz doesn't require the country to BE a full island by itself, it only needs the country to be entirely ON an island. As the whole of East Timor is on the Timor island (and no part of it is on a continent, as is the case for Malaysia or Denmark, for instance), it qualifies :).

Level 64
May 13, 2016
An island nation should be one with no borders with other countries i.e. Iceland, because things like Indonesia aren't islands if they have borders like Papau New Guinea.
+2
Level 57
Oct 20, 2016
An island nation is not a nation that is also an island. It is a nation on one or more islands.
+1
Level 66
Nov 13, 2017
If that is your knowledge, "An island nation can't border any other country" Then what about Ireland and the United Kingdom. Or Haiti and Dominican Republic? Are those countries not on islands?

Because sometimes it is counted as a continental landmass. Islands by definition are landmasses surrounded by water smaller than continents.

This was surprisingly hard, and I say this as a guy who knows his world geography. I really struggled to earn 5 points for this one, and it wasn't because of a lack of knowledge. Even if you know all 47, it gets quite hard when you've typed the first 40 or so and then your brain tries to figure out which ones you haven't typed yet.

Nov 12, 2017
Anyone else confused as to why UK, Ireland, Indonesia, East Timor, etc. are on this quiz? It says countries that are entirely islands, not countries that are not directly connected to a continent. When I read, "entirely islands," I interpreted that as countries that share no land border with another country. I guess I need to be more familiar with what an "island" is.
+1
Level 69
Feb 11, 2018
The thing is that it does NOT say:''Can not share islands with other countries.'' wich applies to The Uk,Ireland,Indonesia,Timor Leste,etc...

as they do share their islands with other countries.

Excellent quiz but there is one technical error given the rules set out by yourself: the UK is not a country entirely located on an island/s, since the British overseas possession of Gibraltar is part of the U.K. And Gibraltar has a land border with Spain. So the UK by that definition is not technically all on an island.

Brunei is located on the island of Borneo. The fact that Malaysia has territory on both Borneo and the mainland is irrelevant to whether or not Brunei is located entirely on an island.
