I haven't checked distances but is UK considered the closest to Iceland because Greenland and Faroe Islands are excluded since they're not countries?

Whether Greenland or the UK is your answer depends on whether you consider Greenland to be a country or not. It's an interesting one because Greenland is definitely not a territory or a province, which leaves being a country the only thing it could be. For this quiz, we have used the 196-country template of the Countries of the World quiz, but if you include the countries in the Countries 197 to 204 quiz as well, then Greenland would be the answer.
