The 54% of us who missed "Solomon Islands" would disagree with you.

Solomon Islands is tricky. On a map it just appears to be so small, but in reality it is larger than most of us may think. I blame the Mercator Projection ;)

I suspected the last one to be some island grouping in the Pacific (well, after trying Brunei, Bahrain, Cyprus, Jamaica...) but I couldn't get the right one on time :( I'm surprised the Solomon Islands are even bigger than Haiti :o

The Solomon Islands are a lot larger than most people are led to believe. Same goes to other archipelago countries, such as Japan and the Philippines.

Why is Australia already filled in? Also, I thought Papua New Guinea had a border with Indonesia

Just to clear this up: Australia is sometimes considered a continent, especially in a geographical sense, therefore disqualifying it as an island. It is filled in from the start for those who consider it an island. Also, a country can have international borders and still be an island country. For example, the United Kingdom shares a border with the Republic of Ireland on the island of Ireland, but this does not mean the Republic of Ireland is not a country. The same goes for Indonesia and Papua New Guinea, who both share the island of New Guinea, making them island countries.

Papua New Guinea has a border with Indonesia, but so do UK and Ireland as well. The point is that all of these countries are completely on islands, not having any area on the mainland of continents. It didn't say they need to be on separate islands by themselves.

Well.... excluding territories and other overseas areas, otherwise the UK would share a land border with Spain at Gibraltar.

Then Afroeurasia or the Americas might as well be an island too, but it's almost never classified as one.

Just out of curiosity. When is an island an island? Artificial islands count, right? But what if you dig a canal? If one of the two pieces of land on either side is then surrounded by water and only reached by crossing bridges or taking a ferry, has it become an island? If the answer is yes, then Denmark becomes interesting, as there is the Kiel Canal (Nord-Ostsee-Kanal) which separates the Northern tip of Germany which borders Denmark. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiel_Canal

Denmark is not considered an island country. Although there are canals, that does not turn the Jutland peninsula into an island.

Yet we let another man-made canal determine the divide between continents: the Suez canal. :)

No it doesn't. That political/geographical divide existed long before the canal was built.

When you put Marshall Islands in, it doesn't work, so you don't bother trying Solomon Islands

The title says it all. A country is a country, and doesn't include territories. Greenland is sometimes treated like a country, but here on Jetpunk it is always considered a territory and will be until it formally becomes independent.

MAJORITY OF US THINK IT IS 100% ISLANDS NOT PART OF AN ISLAND! HAITI IS NOT ONE HUNDRED PERCENT ISLANDS NOT PART OF AN ISLAND for example: Haiti isn't one hundred percent surrounded by water... same with Ireland + UK, Indonesia + Papua New Guinea

Sure, Haiti has a land border, but it is completely located on an island, shared by the Dominican Republic. Also, it is not majority people who say this, I have never heard someone argue against Indonesia or Ireland not being considered an island country.
