Surprising how Laos made it for L, despite being landlocked.

Yeah, L was really tough. According to Wikipedia, Khong Island in Laos is 18 km (11 mi) long and 8 km (5.0 mi) wide. The next largest L country island appears to be in Lithuania (45 km2).

You mean Taiwan? I must have used a country list that did not include Taiwan. Since JetPunk acknowledges Taiwan, I guess I have to add that. Thanks!

I know the caveats state that the whole island is accredited to every country on it, but there are islands in the Ganges delta in Bangladesh that appear to be larger than the whole of Brunei. To attribute the whole of Borneo to a country that only makes up a small percentage of it's area seems illogical.

Yeah, considering only the area of the country in question would have been a fine alternative to my approach.

Madagascar (587,041 km2) is way bigger than Malaysia (330,803 km2)...

But the largest island you can find in Malaysia is Borneo (see the caveat), which has an area of 743,330 km².
