I don't think you should be calling it a country, without specifying "non-independent". It's not in the countries of the world quiz after all.

Flying from NZ to Niue you leave Auckland through the international terminal, not the domestic, go through customs at both ends, and New Zealanders (who supposedly are the reason for Niue "not being independent") get a 30-day entry stamp, "employment prohibited". Nobody in New Zealand - who of all people should know - considers Niue not to be independent.

In reply to Jerry I'm from NZ and I don't think Niue is independent. It's got limited internal self-rule but is part of NZ, just like the Cooks and Tokelau. Limited internal self-rule is not the same as independence. I also don't think you can call it a country.

Isn't the Stromboli the most active European volcano? I mean, it was clear which one was asked for due to the number of letters, but I'd recommend changing the clue to something uncontroversial like “tallest active volcano in Europe”.
