perhaps 'not sanctioned' can sound ambiguous (as in 'not punished') to non native speakers

Level ∞

It's somewhat ambiguous to native English speakers as well. Changed "sanctioned" to "accepted".

Can the part without the saint e.g. simply 'Lucia' be accepted for that question? Also for the overseas territory question 'border' should be pluralised and the territory has one too many 'l's.

Cool quiz nonetheless!

Vincent, Lucia, and Kitts will work now. Also fixed the plural thing, but no idea what you are talking about regarding too many L's. Cool comment anyway!

Level 67

It's not to many "L"s. It's actually one "R" to many in "Territory" in the British Overseas Territories question :)

Ahh, fixed. Minutiae's comment was a good example of Muphry's Law:

"International law" is a funny term to describe that a few nations with nuclear weapons forced their will upon everyone else

Level ∞

Powerful nations forcing their rules on other countries is literally what international law has always been.

Could you mention that overseas territories are excluded for the question about countries touching the indian and pacific ocean?

They could, but there aren’t any, so it would be a rather pointless addition.

(Unless you can think of any?)

I can! There's UK with British Indian Ocean Territory and Pitcairn. France with Reunion and French Polynesia.

None of them touch the Pacific as far as I know? They're all entirely within the Indian Ocean.

Level 36
Nov 30, 2021
There's no land border between the Virgin Islands (a British Overseas Territory) and the Virgin Islands of the United States (a Territory of the United States). They're within the same archipelago, but none of the islands are shared.

Great quiz but as it's not mentioned that overseas territories are excluded, France and the UK should be valid answers that touch both the Indian and Pacific Oceans !

But, British Overseas Territories are not parts of the UK legally. While, it's technically true for France since all territories of France are integral parts of the country according to their constitution.

No France and the UK do not the over seas territories are not a full part of the united kingdom

The British Overseas Territories (BOTs), also known as United Kingdom Overseas Territories (UKOTs), are fourteen territories all with a constitutional and historical link with the United Kingdom. They are the last remnants of the former British Empire and do not form part of the United Kingdom itself.
