Another cool set of quizzes, well done! Typing 'USA' doesn't work Minor note: being closer by longitude doesn't necessarily mean being actually closer in km as it's a distance that varies with latitude (hope that was clear!)

Well that was irritating. Missed NZ despite getting Cook Islands and Niue. Was sure I'd entered it, despite the evidence had I bothered to read over my answers.

How come France doesn't make it to that list ? New Caledonia and French Polynesia should be there.

We'll give you that one for free! New Caledonia doesn't fall into the it's-a-part-of-France-or-it-isn't category, it's in an in-between state.
