In my opinion, the fact that there is a region called Micronesia doesn't NECESSARILY prevent any country to be called that way. It just doesn't apply to the USA with America, but that doesn't make it a rule.
Otherwise, we could debate on Mongolia/Inner Mongolia (why could a country be called Mongolia as if it were a whole entity, as there is an inner Mongolia elsewhere), Samoa/American Samoa, or even states like California/Baja or Virginia/West Virginia.

What I'm saying is that the average Jetpunker is not the same as the average person on the street, particularly when it comes to geography, and ESPECIALLY when it comes to the nations of the world.
goshdarn tiny letters
Not going to lie, though, my Geography sucks, so I likely wouldn't have got it even when accounting for other countries xD
I must have a degree in Stoopid

Sorry, but it simply doesn't make sense, unless it's a quiz of official countries names!
