Can you accept Guam. At least I think it is Guam.

I believe Guam is the overseas US territory, so not a country in its own right, but USA is accepted for it.

Guam is a US territory, that's why the US answer is in red.

Actually, the U.S. is most likely in there for the Northern Marianas, which are closer than Guam by a hundred or so miles.

I'm guessing the U.S. is in there for Alaska (Aleutians).

The Aleutians are not an overseas territory, though... So probably not what the quizmaster had in mind when adding the "red" comment.

I didn’t realize that until after the fact. It is 3316 km from attu, so the Northern Mariana Islands (i think thats the US territory on this list) would be closer by about 200 miles

Bangladesh is included. Nepal is further west than the parts of India that are closest to North Korea. Kazakhstan is closer because it is farther north.
