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.

I think Equatorial Guinea should be on this quiz though. Its capital is on an island but it also owns territory on mainland Africa.

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 56
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.

I'm a Brit and I NEVER use England or Wales in the same way you use France or Indonesia. Even so the Isle of Man isn't even a "country" as England is. It's a territory. Lots more people misuse that than just Brits.
+1
level 65
Dec 29, 2016
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.

Yes but it is not recognized widely. Niue and The Cook Islands are on Islands too, yet they are not widely recognized.

What about Cyprus?

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 ;-).

This isn't about popularity or how well-known the countries are necessarily, it's simply a matter of how associated the countries are with islands. When you say "island country" what springs to mind for the average person first?

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).

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.
+1
level 50
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)

level 71
Feb 20, 2016
The Maldives are located south of India in the Indian Ocean. They became an independent country in 1965. The Falklands are located in the south Atlantic ocean, and are fully dependent on the UK, so they do not qualify as a nation. The Spanish name for them was the Malvinas, not the Maldives.

Wait a minute, East Timor is not an island because it is bordered with Indonesia in Timor Island
+3
level 70
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 :).

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.

An island nation is not a nation that is also an island. It is a nation on one or more 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.

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.

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.

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.
