I was like "What can be 2m. from the USA ??" and then I saw the answers ... How did I forgot Russia ????
St. Kitts = 1262
Antigua = 1324
St. Lucia = 1491
St. Vincent = 1506
Grenada = 1532
Barbados = 1598
Trinidad = 1620
Kiribati to Hawaii = 1252
Japan to Alaska is pretty hard to pinpoint but when you look how far west the Aleutian Islands go and how far northeast some of Japan's smaller islands are, it's pretty clear they are around 1300 miles.

the Netherlands (Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao?) -- Yet you included France (Guadeloupe)
So what's Guadeloupe then? Hm?
I mean you are really splitting hairs here. Honestly, it is a collective which is 99% the same as being in france. Mayotte went to the next level from being a collective to overseas provincial status. Bottom line, you include Guadeloupe, you include St.pierre, or better yet, because you thought that you would be so clever to stump people on your quiz that specifically says "no territories" while including an "overseas province" -which is not the same as a french province. If you want to make this into a legal argument no problem.
are overseas regions of France, just as French Guiana. As to the
Dutch islands, they are ALL, those which are overseas regions of the Netherlands, as well as those who have country (not sovereign country) status, part of the KINGDOM of the Netherlands and yes, therefore, integral parts of the European Union. You may compare them to the relationship England and Scotland have with the United Kingdom and that of Hawaii and Alaska to the United States.
Bask in the knowledge that we are correct and the others are incorrect. That's about as much satisfaction as we're going to get
and I, for one, am tired of the arguments.
is that we don't consult our thesaurus enough! A "region francaise
d'outre mer" is the same as the non-contiguous states of the USA:
Alaska and Hawaii. By the way, similarly, the Caribish Nederland islands of St. Eustatius, Saba and Bonaire are the same to the Netherlands as Utrecht, Amsterdam or Den Haag. They are all intrinsically part of the Netherlands, unlike St.Maarten, Curacao
nd Aruba who have country status within the Kingdom. (COUNTRY,
not Sovereign Nation status). If this is all utterly confusing, blame
