Every time an easy quiz shows up there's at least someone complaining about it. Why can't we have a couple of easy ones?

Doesn't Cuba have a border with the USA (Guantanamo Bay)?
+2
Level 73
Feb 28, 2017
Guantanamo is leased land. Cuba never cashes the check, but every year one is sent. So, it is still sovereign territory of the nation of Cuba, leased by another country.
+2
Level 40
Feb 28, 2017
They could cash the check it still wouldn't be a border. The US just rent a place according to an old contract Cuba no longer recognizes. It's just a case of a landlord wanting the guy out and Guantanamo Bay isn't a US territory. It's just a military base on foreign soil like the US hold others around the world.

Send the check to me......... I'll cash it.

Shouldn't the title be changed to 'Largest Countries with No Land Borders'?
+1
Level 42
Oct 9, 2019
Or "Name ten islands".

Level 73
Oct 9, 2019
Clearly. The most famous islands I can think of are Australia Island, Japan Island, and Solomon Islands Island.

Since when are Solomon islands on of the most famous? The other nine are far more easy.

Surprising no one has brought up the "is Sri Lanka an island" controversy yet. Personally I support it being on the quiz.
+1
Level 60
Jul 19, 2020
They probably went to some Flat Earth conference, if people who make that a controversy really exist.
+1
Level 60
Oct 22, 2023
I think the controversy is whether it borders India, not whether it is an island.

Level 29
Apr 30, 2020
What about cyprus
+2
Level 39
Jul 3, 2020
Cyprus is 9250 sq km. I'm not sure what position it'd be in if this list was extended, but I think there would be a few more Pacific Island nations above it, due to them having loads and loads of small islands.
+1
Level 49
Jun 29, 2020
is this just land area of all islands combines or is the water in between counted?

May 18, 2021
Technically biggest island nations with no borders and Australia

Aug 28, 2021
Well, yes... It's hard to have no borders and NOT be an island nation or Australia.

Level 24
Aug 28, 2021
I thought Taiwan was a part of China. And Solomon Islands, never thought it was that bigger, though I thought Kiribati would be in the list
+2
Level 43
Nov 30, 2021
Taiwan is a fully-functioned independent country apart from PRC, just lack of recognition worldwide.
+1
Level 49
Jun 20, 2022
So...it's not a country?
+1
Level 60
Jul 16, 2023
I get your point, but being a country is more of de-facto than de-jure to me. Even countries like Armenia aren't recognized by all countries.
+1
Level 60
Jul 16, 2023
Kiribati is just mostly ocean.
