Hey Luke! I'm subscribed to your quizzes. On this quiz, Canada seems to be missing. Also, Australia's independence date is off by about 150-200 years, depending on what definition you use. (New Zealand is off by a lot too)

Hi Quizmaster. Yeah, when I typed them in I did question them as I have different dates on another of my quizzes. I'll check them and add Canada. And, thanks for subscribing!

You forgot Kiribati (July 12, 1979) and Nauru (January 31, 1968) -- although Nauru may be a technicality, since it was part of a UN Trust Territory administered jointly by the UK, Australia, and New Zealand.
