salsette was lucky guess for me. There just could not be so many countries with fench island names - but it hurt.

Lucky guess for me, too. Sounds like it should be French, but France was up there already.

I've been to them all over the last 5 years. I'd say 90% of them are noteworthy for their lack of charm

Svalbard is not an island, but an archipelago. The largest island is called Spitsbergen, and is probably the one meant in this quiz.

Aruba has been a Dutch colony once, but it's a country in its own right these days. You might consider using Bonaire, which IS still part of the Netherlands.

Aruba is a 'country' within The Kingdom of the Netherlands, but not a sovereign state, so it is very much still part of the Netherlands.

Aruba is a constituent country, not a sovereign country, so it is still very much a part of the Kingdom of Netherlands.

The Caribbean Sea begins north of Cuba, encompasses the islands to the east as far as (some say, through I disagree) Barbados and ends at Venezuela. It is a stretch to try to put Mexico in the Caribbean, don't you think?

cause it's in every danm quiz! greenland doesnt count, why doesnt it count? because it is part of denmark. But it is a country itself. No it isnt, yes it is, no it isnt! etc..

really it feels like it is in 95% of all the quizes that contain countries, not allways in the comments but allmost allways in the caveat. (So it stands even more out than in which continent crete or russia is, or if australia is a continentor an island. Even thought those discussions are more agressive,,,, ow wait I forgot if england is a country or not and what macedonia should be called. I'm sure I missed more..)

Zanzibar could be a good addition (also Tanzania, as most of you will undoubtedly know), as it is reasonably well known (or at least heard of) by people who are not regular quizzers so not majorly obscure. Then Africa would be represented in this quiz...
