Good. It's wrong to consider azores as an overseas territory of Portugal, though. It's just one of their ordinary island regions, like Canary or Balearic islands for Spain or Hawaii for the USA.

Sorry for nitpicking.

Not nitpicking - I think this is an important distinction! People need to understand that just because parts of a country are geographically distant, that doesn't automatically mean they're an overseas territory. Hawaii is a good example.

What makes something an overseas territory is the constitutional and governance set up, not an arbitrary distance.

What is this about??? Just get on I-95, head north, never exit, and voila! you're in Canada, and 0 km from Maine...

I was typing Denmark, accidentally typed "DR", got credit for Dominican Republic (which I would have gotten anyway), and subsequently forgot Dominica, because I always type it together with Dominican Republic. And there went my perfect score!

Don't want to be a kill joy, but Bermuda is an Overseas Territory, which isn't classed as part of the United Kingdom.
