Unless I'm missing something, your numbers seem to be off.

Using the Google Maps measuring tools, my best estimates are:

- Chile: 940 km

- Argentina: 1035 km

- Australia: 1492 km

- New Zealand: 1926 km

Your South Africa measurement seems about right, but Uruguay and Brazil are much closer.

Great quiz. I do think Norway and perhaps France and U.K. are pretty close also, definitely closer than South Africa

Yes, they are close to the north pole, but they all have territory down south.
