Neither of them are very popoulus. I'm sure for NZ it's North Island and South Island = 2.

What are the three in the US? I checked Wikipedia, and the only ones it lists above one million are Long Island, Manhattan Island, and Puerto Rico, but I was under the impression that featured quizzes on Jetpunk never count territories such as Puerto Rico as a part of the country that owns them.

I mean, the Island of Montreal has well over a million people (1,942,000), so just one of Vancouver Island or Newfoundland would do.

Greece has many populated islands, but none that are "populous" by the definition used here. Crete is home to only 623,000 people and it goes sharply down from there.

It's pretty sad really that Google can't take us directly to the Census data. It's not like accurate data is hard to find if you know where to look.

I live in Canada and was sure you had forgotten that off the list. Now that I check, only Montreal has over 1 million. So, good on you for knowing something about my own country that I was unaware of.
