If you're going to include Denmark because of Greenland, which is an autonomous territory, you should definitely include the Netherlands, which has three special municipalities in the Caribbean: Saba, Bonaire, and St. Eustatius, all of which are considered integral parts of the Netherlands, much like French Guiana, Guadelope, Martinique, Reunion, and Mayotte are to France.

France is also in North America, not only because of the Caribbean territories above, but because of St.-Pierre and Miquelon, off the coast of Newfoundland.

More, after I hit "submit": France is also in Oceania (French Polynesia and New Caledonia), in Africa (Réunion and Mayotte). The UK is also in many places, including Oceania (Pitcairn), North America (the British Virgin Islands, Anguilla, the Cayman Islands) and South America (the Falkland Islands, but don't ask any Argentines about it).

Iceland itself is located just at the border of American and Eurasian tectonic plate, making it divided into two different continent by a ridge. Indonesia is mainly in asia, but also consists of part of new guinea, which is located inside the oceania, making it the only asia-oceania transcontinental country.

By continental-plate logic, Russia and Japan also has territory in North america. Also, the Caribbean would be considered its own continent.

It is because Azerbaijan westernmost point actually is not connected to Azerbaijan and Georgia is farther west than the rest of the Caucasian countries, and since Armenia is the smallest, it does not cross the transcontinental line. Azerbaijan wouldn't either, if it didn't own Nagorno-Karabakh.

Yemen should be added given the Socotra archipelago is geographically part of Africa and Colombia too given the islands of San Andres and Providencia are in North America.

My only complaint is that Indonesia isn't on here. The island of New Guinea is a part of Oceania, and the island is split between Papua New Guinea and Indonesia, therefore making Indonesia transcontinential
