You should specify that you are not including overseas territories.

I totally thought the long blanks had answers and was trying to figure out the one country that is furthest south. I didn't realize it was just that there were no answers for those spaces.

Looks like another quiz that'll need an "excludes Greenland" in the instructions, since Greenland (or Denmark) are missing from the 75°N answers. You know, someone living in Nuuk is gonna do a heap of geography quizzes soon with "excludes United States" in the instructions.

How is Norway there when it's area is smaller than the area of Finland? Or do you count the dependent territories as well? Like Svalbard for Norway. Norway should not be there in that case either because then Denmark with Greenland is larger. Whether you count the dependencies or not Norway should not be there

Area of Norway: 148,718 square miles
Area of Finland: 130,666 square miles
This doesn't include Svalbard

That includes Svalbard. The area of mainland Norway is about 323,800 square kilometers and the area of Svalbard is about 61,000 square kilometers. Add those up and you get about 385,000 square kilometers which is the same as 149,000 square miles. The area of Finland is about 338,000 kilometers which is larger than the area of mainland Norway. If you count Svalbard for Norway then you should count the other overseas dependencies for other countries too like Greenland for Denmark. In that case Denmark would be larger than Norway. Here are the official statistics for the area of Norway http://www.ssb.no/en/natur-og-miljo/statistikker/arealdekke

Svalbard is intrinsically part of Norway in how it is governed. It is not similar to Greenland.

Hey do you think you could do one with like how long an unbroken line on that latitude stretches through that country, not like the whole area of the country? it's kind of hard to explain
