Ehm actually it would be left from Chile.. you do know the world is a globe right, not a rectangle. And we just "happened" to get used to the map where it is america left and Australia right

I agree, according to a phone app, from Kiribati to Chile there are like 9.000 km, and from Kosovo to Chile there are about 11.000 km

Fiji is closer to Chile than France, unless you are including French Guiana, otherwise Fiji is about 1,000 kilometers closer to Chile than France.

Why wouldn't you include French Guyana? It's absolutely part of France.

If you are counting French Guiana, say "including oversea territories."

It's not an overseas territory, it's a part of France like Hawaii is a part of the USA.

Congo should be under C, like all the other quizzes on this website. And Micronesia for example with the M instead of F.

I can only assume that Quizzer uses Côte d'Ivoire, because Ivory Coast is indeed a couple of thousand km closer.

R. Congo is a misstep. Either Congo or DRC is fine but nobody uses R. Congo.

Great idea for a quiz! But I share others' concerns about the "R" answer.

Nice quiz, but I agree with everyone that "R. Congo" should be under C, since that's standard for this site. Saying Congo starts with "R" is like saying China starts with "P." In the case of Republic of the Congo, we specify "Republic" just to differentiate it from the other Congo, but that doesn't change the fact that the main name is "Congo."

It is, but how is that even remotely relevant to the quiz?
