I assume you're talking about 'Country with the sparsest (least dense) territory in Oceania'. That one's a bit tricky because no, Indonesia isn't in Oceania, but its territory on New Guinea (Western New Guinea) is considered to be in Oceania and qualifies through that.

Correction: the Indonesian subdivisions in Oceania are called Papua and West Papua.

Nice quiz. However on the question "first national capital alphabetically" it has Amsterdam first, and Ankara second. I believe it should be Abu Dhabi first, and Abuja second.

The original has 3 minutes, I'll add a minute as suggested to make it consistent and the capitals thing should be fixed. Sorry about that!

Also neither Algeria nor Burkina Faso touch the equator, so that question should be fixed ;)

I have no clue where I got my data for that question. Thanks, it's now fixed.
