Philippines is crap; Cameroon is questionable and Omdurman in Sudan is largely seen as Part of Khartoum (but it might be right).

How is Rotterdam the largest city in the Netherlands? Amsterdam is definitely larger. What are you considering as city here? I assume you are counting The Hague together with Rotterdam somehow, but I don't think it makes sense to call that a "city".

Also is Montecarlo a separate city of Monaco? I thought it was just a district.
