And Cyprus exists in the space between spaces. Just like the aliens from Indiana Jones 4.
Also, I love how people on this site will argue about the UK in every quiz that asks about it.
Scandinavia is occasionally used as a synonym but more properly is Sweden, Norway and Denmark as per relessness
- Norway / Sweden (the Scandinavian peninsula, but can also include parts of Finland and Russia)
- Norway / Sweden / Denmark (a linguistic definition, and the most common)
- Norway / Sweden / Denmark / Finland / Iceland (= Nordic countries, a cultural definition also including islands like Greenland and Faroes etc)
Sometimes a certain definition is more appropriate depending on the context, and all are fine and correct if properly explained.
"The United Kingdom consists of four countries: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland."
Cyprus is just a matter of genuine dispute, which is OK!
"Sources alternatively place Cyprus in Europe, or Western Asia and the Middle East."
