Using Google maps, USA should be on. From Guam to a small island off the Taiwanese cost (Xiao-lan Yu), there is a distance of 2609 km. Don't know if the quiz is using the main island and not the islands off the coast, though.

Overseas territories are excluded (as per the instructions), but if you include them, Guam is 2613 km / 1623 miles from that uninhabited offshore island. If you include overseas territories, but only count from the nearest inhabited island, at 2617 km / 1626 miles Guam still just makes the list. If you only count distances from mainland Taiwan, then Guam would slip off the list at 2685 km /1668 miles.

I have made the exactly same quiz on February last year, the only thing different is mine includes overseas territories. Didn't get why it isn't featured first...

I wonder how Federated States of Micronesia made it on this list. It seems pretty far away from Taiwan

The westernmost island in FSM is Yap, which is the distance you see in this quiz away. Micronesia's a large country though, in extent if not in land area; the distance to the "far" end of the country, at Kosrae, is 4830 km / 3001 miles.
