Countries in a Ring of the World Map

Given a donut ring of the world map below, can you name all the countries that have territory shown on the ring? (Not the countries inside the central white)
There are no answer boxes on purpose! The map is your only resource to name all the countries!
You also need to name the external territory featured. Both its name or the country it belongs to are accepted.

nice! can we have a harder version where you start with an 'empty circle' and countries appear as you guess them?

But...how would you know where in the world to start if you couldn't see any countries? I love it the way it is - just make more with different slices of the world!

Start by guessing some of the "big" countries, eg USA, Russia, Australia etc. You're pretty much guaranteed to get one right pretty quickly and that would give you a starting point. I like this quiz idea!

Or just the major outlines, not the shared inland borders

maybe just start with one country for reference but the rest is blank?

or you're given the donut and have to fill in the white circle

It means Greenland, which is a territory of Denmark

Level 69
Mar 10, 2018
"Can you name all the countries that have territory inside the ring?" Shouldn't you have to mention Denmark since Greenland is shown?
+2
Level 68
Mar 10, 2018
Denmark is a required answer! Although since Greenland is shown and not Denmarks mainland, Greenland is also a valid answer!

Though, it's pretty much a given, these days, that - when on JetPunk - 'countries' means 'sovereign states'.

Easy. Though at first I thought you were looking for the countries with territory inside the white circle.

I'm curious what shape this would actually be on a globe. I assume it would not be a circle anymore, right? Along those lines, it would be cool to have a quiz like this where the map shown is actually the border of a hemisphere as seen when looking at a globe -- the projection would be different and might make it more of a challenge. That being said, this is a great quiz!
