Interesting, when I saw that the US was 11, I figured DST was factoring in. Without it I'm only getting up to 9. Now I have to go look this up.

Just being a perfectionist, but in your note, it should be "Daylight Saving Time", not "Savings" (you can't actually save time!).

Most of western China is uninhabited anyways, so it doesn't cause as much problems as it might if the US does the same.

There are still lots of people living there. Even though kal is partly joking, I'd be inclined to believe that Mao wanted every Chinese citizen to be on the same time as his capital, which is on the latitude where most of the other +8 timezones are.

I used to live in Sichuan. The officials there would use the 'local' time and the official time according to whichever was most convenient for them. Supposed to work from 8 to 5? Well then, just start working when it would be 8 o'clock by the sun, then stop working when it was officially 5.

Xinjiang has more than twenty million people. Not a ton by the standards of Chinese provinces, but not insignificant.

Nobody in New Zealand thinks of Cook Islands and Niue to be a territory of New Zealand. They are nations that are a part of the "realm" of NZ, but when New Zealanders talk about New Zealand they mean the North and South Islands (in one time zone) and Chatham Islands (in a 2nd time zone), and that's it. Go to any travel agent and the Cooks and Niue are in the foreign destinations list, and when you travel there, you have to clear customs, and you fly there from the international terminal. The one genuine territory of NZ is Tokelau, but again, NZers don't include that very remote clutch of atolls in their thinking.

I think the Netherlands should feature on their somewhere, granted that Aruba and St. Maarten are Dutch overseas territories. Is that right?

When will I learn to type in an answer if it occurs to me "just in case" it's right? Sigh. The only one I missed, and I didn't bother typing it in.
