@geoquizpro, I stand corrected, apparently there is no Australian continent. When it is refered to as Australia (continent) it includes: Australia (country), Torres straight islands and the island of New Guinea. Oceania refers to all the countries I listed above. BUT... Australasia only refers to Australia (country) and New Zealand, and occasionally south east Asian countries. But not the rest of the Pacific. BY the way I am not one of those "Stupid Americans" you refered to me as, I am infact Australian so I think I know what I'm talking about.

hey I spelled vanuatu "vanatu" on Countries of the world quiz and it took it, that ain't fair >:P BTW @geoquizpro Australia is BOTH considered a country and a continent, it's a called a continent by many people and it's a country because it has a flag. Americans aren't stupid idk what country you're from but obviously youve been taught WRONG!

Australians also call a non-sovereign country a country if it has some independence of constitution/law/government etc. , I would also think that other countries would also feel this way, I would not be as certain of other peoples preferences as some of the commentators are on this site. It is never advisable to generalise on any subject when the realities are only based on ones opinion

Any countries that touch an island, are an island. Ireland is touching the UK, which is an island. Papua new guinea is touching Indonesia, which is an island.
+1
level 65
Mar 31, 2015
That's not how this works: every country that is entirely contained on one or more island is an "island country" for the purposes of this quiz, regardless of whether or not it touches another country. The Republic of Ireland is entirely contained on the island of Ireland (which it shares with Northern Ireland, which is a province of the UK). Papua New Guinea is entirely contained on the island of New Guinea, which it shares which Indonesia. Indonesia itself is entirely contained on a great number of islands, including Java, Sumatra, New Guinea etc.

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?

Country has always been a polysemic word, and thus, subject to different interpretations. As I see it, the problem arises when the USA and Germany distorted the use of the word "state", which would be the proper one in this context.

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 :).

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.

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.

Singapore is not on an island so should not be on this quiz. It is at the very tip of the peninsula that malaysia and thailand shares. If you think Singapore is an island, GO STUDY A BLOODY MAP and that will tell you that Singapore is not an island.
