Greenland is about 2,130,800 km2, and second-largest is the Jutland part of Denmark, which is only 29,775 km2 (.01%). So, once again Denmark messes everything up.

In my opinion, either the cut-off should be higher or shouldn't be there. It's somewhat awkward to include only some of the Oceanic/Caribbean island nations.

Are you excluding Denmark because Greenland is bigger than Denmark?
