Wouldn't the furthest point from the poles and equator be the 45th parallel? So any countries on that parallel would qualify? But the US is in that group and isn't on the list.

mmm I guess as usual I have to improve the wording :D I actually meant the other "interpretation" ie what's the minimum distances you have to travel to reach the country starting either at a pole or at the equator, so you basically have to look at the latitude of northernmost and southernmost points and they must be as close as possible to 45ºN Thanks for your comment!
