11 Sovereign States of "Lesser Oceania" Quiz - USA-centric

"Lesser Oceania", as analogous to the "Lesser Antilles", could be defined as Oceania minus its largest islands and nations. I can personally attest to the fact that when taking Jetpunk quizzes, it's easy enough to remember Australia, New Zealand, and Papua New Guinea as answers for quiz questions because they are large enough and populous enough to remember more easily. But I have a hard enough time remembering all of the remaining smaller SOVEREIGN states of Oceania (not including overseas territories). What about them? Well, there are 11 of them, and this quiz is a basic primer on them.

Interesting quiz. I'm pretty sure Polynesian isn't a language, so question #15 doesn't make sense.
