Why is St. Pierre et Miquelon/France not included in some fashion?

It's a gray area, for sure, which is why some quizzes will include them in some way, and others not. The instructions on this quiz exclude them.

Portugal should be on here courtesy of Flores island in the Azores

Shouldn't the UK be on here because of Bermuda?

The instructions for this quiz exclude overseas territories and departments. But, in any case, with the UK, British Overseas Territories come under the jurisdiction of the UK, but do not form a part of it.

I find it odd that you've chosen to count Aruba, Sint Maarten, and, although it's not on this quiz, probably also Curacao as countries. I was able to guess them anyway because those are the only ones in the Caribbean that could be seen as countries, but aren't they much like England and Scotland - countries, but not sovereign nations?

We use the wider definition of countries that citypopulation.de uses, including, as you mention, Aruba and Sint Maarten, and they don't count England and Scotland as countries.

Greenland is obviously not a country.

For oversea regions, the countries that own them should be an acceptable answer.

For not including overseas territories, this certainly includes a lot of overseas territory of other nations.

In the Alaska quiz, we were able to use "Denmark" as an acceptable answer for Greenland. Can we do the same for this quiz?

OK, so long as you remember Greenland is a constituent country of the kingdom of Denmark. The country of Denmark is just the peninsula in Europe :)

Took it again a couple months later, again after the Alaska version. Alaska has nearest countries even if by overseas territory. This one has unrecognized countries and no overseas territories included so I bombes out again.

ST.Pierre and Miquelon, they are closer than the Azores and belong to France just off the coast of Newfoundland.

Greenland? I have yet to find another JetPunk quiz that considers Greenland as a country. "Denmark" is the required/expected input where Greenland is an answer. I hope this quiz author will consider conforming to this de facto standard.

Please note the instructions. All of our quizzes treat the country of Greenland as a country, but all of our quizzes also accept Denmark as a type-in in that instance.
