This doesn't seem right...Brazil, for instance, is only ~6300 miles from Kazakhstan. Curious as to what criteria/source was used for this?

This quiz measures furthest point from furthest point. So, for example, on the Countries Nearest quiz for Kazakhstan, Russia is zero miles "away", but on this quiz would be calculated as several thousand km away.

Ah, I see. That's not how I intuited it based on the scant description...still got 100% though. :)

Are you going to make a version of this - with the closest distance involved (but still furthest)?

whoa, wasn't expecting you'd write "#2" in the quiz title, but slick move, cause people'll see this one w/ lots of takes, and think "hey, where's no. 1?" :)

Not intentionally "slick", I'm afraid - it's just that the logic of working off nearest points for furthest countries seemed, on reflection, to make more sense.

Wondering why UK and France aren’t on here because of French Guyana and the south sandwich islands
