Agreed, it's one thing to memorize all the capitals of Oceania, but it's another thing to determine which island nation is actually shown and what the corresponding capital is.

Colombo is de facto economic and legislative capital, but Kotte is the official and administrative capital. See this from Wikipedia:

Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte, commonly known as Kotte ([kɔːte]), is the official, administrative capital of Sri Lanka. Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte is a satellite city and located within the urban area of Sri Lanka's de facto economic and legislative capital, Colombo.
