I think Jetpunk convention is to exclude external territories, unless stated otherwise. Thus Greenland is not usually included in the area of Denmark, Australia's tallest mountain isn't Mawson Peak, etc.

This is a quiz about Canada. Until they start winning it again (30 years now), Lord Stanley's Cup needs to in quizzes about America. The REAL America.

I find it very amusing that more test-takers here know about Hans Island than Drake.

The Jetpunk community is definitely special. (I say this as a geography nerd and a fan of Drake's music.)
