Thanks very much. I've added more time and fixed the error. It's easy to miss little Ecuador all tucked away down there. And Turkmenistan is one of the 'permanently neutral' countries which are ones that are bound by international treaty (I think the Hague Convention) to be neutral in future wars, Turkmenistan's neutrality was formally recognised by the UN in 1995. ^_^ Thanks again lovely quizzers.

Ironically the guess rate for Chile has actually gone down since changing the clue from an incorrect one to a correct one! I must have not been the only one to make that error.

You are quite right in a practical sense, however Gambia does have a minute amount of coast on the Atlantic.

About "The only country with coast on the Atlantic & Pacific oceans", Chile definitely touches both oceans. Even Argentina is counted in here, List of countries bordering on two or more oceans.
