Countries in an Empty Ring of the World Map

Given a blank donut ring of the world map below, can you name all the countries that lie somewhat inside the ring?
There are no answer boxes on purpose! The empty map is your only resource to name all the countries!
Hint: Try typing big countries first to see where in the world the ring lies!
Overseas territories/departments not included.

Mistakes: Palau is not included, Yap Islands (part of Micronesia) is not included, the French overseas territory of Reunion is not included, and Astove Island, Assomption Island, and Aldabra Island (part of Seychelles) is not included.

- Palau is not within the ring. An uninhabited island is, but that is not included since nobody lives there!
- Yap Islands are too far away and not inside the boundaries.
- Reunion is, as you say, an overseas territory and therefore not included. (Have added that to the description to make it more clear)
- Astove island is uninhabited, Assomption Island is not typically considered to be apart of the main part of Seychelles. Similarly Aldabra Island.

At the end of the day, the islands above actually within the ring are not featured on the World Map JetPunk uses and would cause more complaints if they were to be included, than if they were just left out.

Reunion is actually an overseas region/department of France, rather than a territory. It's similar to the status Hawaii has in the U.S. -- administratively identical to every other region and an integral part of the country, just separated by water. However, I do agree with your reasoning.

It was really tough to get a start. I was mainly stumped because I figured it would all be at the same lattitude or longitude, dont know whichis which. After I still not getting hits, while I was pretty sure I covered north to south (like chile covers most of the southern hemisphere) I was confused and kept trying random things, I think I got a hit with Australia. But then I tried things which should be at the same height with no luck. I took a long time to get rolling. Still a fun quiz though

Maybe add in the description that the ring is randomly placed on the earth. And not like a slice taken out (and layed flat, but well, all maps are made flat, so that is superfluous).

It has just occurred to me, 3 months later, that I completely forgot to make the quiz I referred to. I planned to do "Countries in a Heart of the World Map", but I believe I got busy and completely forgot. Sorry for this! :P

I keep on having the same problem.. that i think in 3d and not a flat map. So i see it as a strip of a globe. It is soo hard to switch back from that (after the time it takes to realise).

tough piece of map you chosen too, i love it.

this keeps on being a personal mindfuck for me haha (like i have to warp reality to make it fit. Like some people have with puzzles with unfolded cubes, which i dont have much trouble with actually)
