FYI, the character in Nukuʻalofa is not an apostrophe (otherwise it would be spelt Nuku'alofa). In Tongan that character is called a fakauʻa, but by other names in other Pacific languages, such as Hawaiian (where it appears in the word Hawaiʻi).

It doesn’t. The Caribbean Sea only starts *below* Cuba, Puerto Rico, etc. The Bahamas are *above all of those places, so are only in the Atlantic Ocean.

Is Barbados not valid for North America?
+1
Level 55
May 22, 2022
Yes, I believe it should be.

Barbados:

Official language - English

Borders - 0

Words - 1

Now the 4th question is the issue... some believe Barbados to be in the Caribbean, some believe it to be in the Atlantic, some believe it to be in both. I would change this to say 'not in the Lesser Antilles'.

(and obviously, it has less than 1 million people)

Isn't the official name of Bahamas 'The Commonwealth of the Bahamas, or just The Bahamas?' Which is more than one word.

If we always used official names we’d screw up a lot of quizzes. The official JetPunk name is ‘Bahamas’.

For the Europe one, The Netherlands is valid for the first 4 categories, it borders Germany, Belgium and France in the Caribbean (St Maarten/St Martin). I know it's a bit pedantic, but it doesn't state the borders have to be in Europe. ;)

I wasn't thinking and typed Mexico for North America "has less than three borders", but it was accepted. It shouldn't be accepted because it has exactly three borders: USA, Guatemala, and Belize.
