Nice quiz, thanks! I wasted a lot of time trying to go through it alphabetically at first - on "E" for example I was thinking of loads of island countries but not typing them in because they didn't begin with "E"! D'oh

I always call East Timor Timor Leste, so I didn't get E, And I just straight up forgot about the UK

Yeah, more people got Grenada or Kiribati than one of the most universally known countries in the world, it’s crazy how much your mind plays tricks like that on you, when is says islands country, you automatically think trivially and don’t go through the obvious answers like you otherwise would

Read the caveats please. JetPunk typically considers it a continental landmass, like Antarctica, Afro-Eurasia, etc.

And this would be wrong. There is nothing to say that a continental landmass cannot be an island...in fact it HAS to be an island in any definition.

So then would Afro-Eurasia be the largest island in the world? And then wouldn't that make ALL countries "island countries"? The fact is that there is no strict scientific definition of "continent," nor any strict scientific delineation between "continent" and "island." It's all left to convention, and those conventions are different in different countries. None is more "right" than the others.

I agree with RobNobody. I'm sure most people can agree Afro-Eurasia and the Americas aren't islands, so I would imagine Australia would follow suit.

Whether this is correct or not, it is JetPunk standard and applies to this quiz.

Micronesia should be under 'm' for the same reason that Papua New Guinea is under 'p' rather than 'i' from their full name of Independent State of Papua New Guinea and also Marshall Islands is under 'm' rather than 'r' from their full name of Republic of Marshall Islands.

First of all, this quiz uses JetPunk standards, and JetPunk standard is F. S. Micronesia.

Now, as for why: I believe the reason why F. S. Micronesia is not just Micronesia on JetPunk is to differentiate it from the region Micronesia, just like how Macedonia is North Macedonia. There are no other Papua New Guineas or Marshall Islands.

In a quiz about naming countries, there are no other Micronesia's either. I get that the site standard isn't your choice, but it is an inconsistent standard.

I understand your point, but I imagine it's the same as calling the USA "America" or North Macedonia "Macedonia". Generally, countries are differentiated from regions.

Level 76

Calling it "Micronesia" is like calling the USA "America".

and yet "Micronesia" is accepted as a type in for FS Micronesia in standard JetPunk quizzes

Woah! You got a feature! Nice one! I think I wrote this before it was featured and missed all the bigger island nations because I got hung up micro nations and ignored the bigger countries entirely.

I assume you meant "I think I took this ..." That seems to be the trend from the comments and on other quizzes, that's usually what I do.

Oh yeah, I usually say “I wrote a quiz” or “I took a quiz” interchangeably. I suppose that could be confused with making a quiz or writing answers on paper as taking the quiz. I took this quiz previously and missed the bigger island countries. Anyway… Congrats on having a top-liked quiz. :)

Ive always thought countries like haiti and east timor shouldnt be "island countries" since the whole island is not the country. Haiti shares hispaniola with the Dominican Republic and East timor shares timor with Indonesia but thats just me rambling lol. Great Quiz!

i'm assuming it's because they're fully located on an island, they're not countries located on a landmass that just happen to have islands

No, it has its capital on an island but is on the mainland. See this quiz of capitals and countries on islands for similar cases.

I honestly thought Timor-Leste would be under T. But I couldn't remember any other island country starting with E, so I tried it anyway.
