Cuba has 3 times the area of Taiwan, which has a population of 23 million. It's possible.

The size doesn't really coincide with population. For ex. Canada is 2nd largest and 37th most populous, so it's possible.

Cuba and Guatemala are almost exactly the same size. In point of fact, Cuba is incrementally larger.

The Netherlands is less than half the size than Cuba and has over 17 million people living there, so not just in Asia..

One thing is appropiating the word America for your country, don't appropiate its adjective form too, please. Every country in "the Americas" is indeed an American country.

The demonym American has been used, by virtually everyone in the world, to refer exclusively to the United States of America for many decades if not centuries. If any appropriation is taking place here it would be mis-using it to refer to everything from the Americas, something that didn't catch on anywhere outside of a couple of Latin American countries until approximately 5 or 10 years ago. The way you are using the term is so peculiar and confusing - to everyone, not just Americans - that it almost has to be deliberate.

French Guiana is a department of France, their equivalent of a US state. It is not a territory - something I learned taking these quizzes.

And if you're talking about France due to French Guiana, then only the pop of French Guiana should count (as it happens with Russia in this kind of continental-centric quizzes).

The description says that it is the most populated countries that are in the Americas - not the countries with the highest population in the Americas. Therefore France should be on the list.

Well then I guess by that logic shouldn't the United States be on the list of most populous Oceania countries?

But even though Turkey has territory in Europe, and so does Kazakhstan, they are both normally counted as Asian countries. Spain has territory in Africa, but it is still mostly European and it's counted as a European country. France is counted as European in the same way. The oddest one is probably Russia, which is usually considered European, even though the large bulk of its territory is in Asia. But there are reasons for that, too.

Man I always think of Ecuador as being tiny (area-wise), but in reality it's bigger than, for example, the UK. Stupid Mercator projection maps.
