Wonderful! Please note that New Zealanders do not consider Niue or Cook Islands to be a part of New Zealand, especially as we fly to those places from the international terminal at Auckland, have to clear customs at each end, and our credit card statements add onto our Cook Island and Niue spending the overseas surcharge mandatory with any overseas spending! We Kiwis cannot live or work, as of right, there either.

That‘s true, but can you imagine how huge complaining would be if I‘d store them under "countries" without giving any hint? As long as they‘re not considered JetPunk countries, I‘ll regard them as mostly independent (dependent on foreign affairs and defence by NZ) but giving appropriate hints

Tricky. I don't like them called "countries" as they clearly aren't fully independent countries. Like New Zealand conducts their diplomatic relations and the citizens of these two are citizens of New Zealand as well. It's simplest to have them listed under the countries listing, but maybe call them islands, territories, areas, or something alike in the disclaimer?

Cook Islands have formal diplomatic relations with 43 countries, including New Zealand. There is a NZ embassy in Rarotonga, and a Cook Islands embassy in Auckland (strictly speaking, the term for embassies between Commonweath countries is "high commission", but the functions are identical). Other counties that recognise Cook Islands diplomatically include Australia, Japan, India, China, France, Germany and every country in Oceania. (Even the US has consular relations). The full list is here.

So you don't have the right to work in those places? That explains why huge numbers of Kiwis are not flocking to Rarotonga or Niue for work! :)

That's interesting, Jerry - I didn't know any of that. Still, for this quiz, I didn't guess them because I didn't think they'd qualify.

Great! I suggest changing to 'zoomable circles' so they don't become too big when zooming in

Fixed this along many other minor faults. There were so many that I uploaded this map at least 15 times, always with an error in it. Should be all fine by now.

I did the 15-16 hour flight from Atlanta to Seoul before. I was ready to give up state secrets by the end of that one.

Longest I did was Amsterdam Kualu lumpur. I remember 15-16 hours, but good chance that number was total flight (kuala lumpur was not the final destination)

Should Canberra not be included also? I'm pretty sure you can fly non-stop from Canberra to Wellington year round.

Doesn't adding a map to this quiz defeat its purpose. If you didn't know some cities, you could just look at the map. I got many just by looking at a map, and some I never would have thought of.
