While I'm all in favour of anti-officiousness with 'official names' and that (Peoples' Republic of China), it is a JetPunk tradition to comment in anger about the omission of such tediosities and I feel I am obliged to complain over the branding of the Federated States of Micronesia as merely the unassuming 'Micronesia'

You do not know how long it took me to memorize all of these. Before JetPunk, I didn't even know half of these countries existed. The 100% I got feels better than the 10% I used to get. Now off to the Caribbean Islands.

I enjoy the quizzes but I really come here for the comments...

Great stuff everyone! Keep up the good work!

And since we're here anyway: Shouldn't French Polynesia be included? Or Guam? Shouldn't "Federated States of Micronesia" be accepted? Should we not introduce NZ as an acceptable abbreviation for New Zealand? What about Palestine (just, in general)?

I wondered why I couldn't get 'Federated States of Micronesia' to work, then I found it is because it had been mislabelled as 'Micronesia'. This is as bad as mislabelling the United States of America as 'America' or mislabelling South Africa as 'Africa'. The Federated States of Micronesia is not the only country in Micronesia, and it is not even the biggest.

Anybody that has been on the site for more than 2 months? (assuming they don't do exclusively sports quizzes or something).

I have always typed new guinea though, and dont think that will change, I wont ever use roc and the other east asian ones either. Takes me longer to think of the correct abreviation than to write the word. (I do use UAE UK and USA ow and CAR)

For all Earthlings out there wondering what borders follow this quiz. This quiz follows what JetPunk considers being the borders of continents. In Oceania, it does not follow the Weber Line, nor the Wallace Line, neither the Lydekker Line, that means that Papua New Guinea is Oceanic but Indonesia and Timor-Leste are not. France, the US, the UK and Japan are not transcontinental so they are not Oceanic. And, of course, no territory is considered a country.

But there are no French overseas departments in Oceania (New Caledonia, Wallis and Futuna and French Polynesia are overseas territories, which do not form part of France). Even if there were (like in North and South America and Africa) I would consider France solely a European country, because most of its territory and population are located there.

Here is my dumb mnemonic for remembering the small island nations of Oceania. With mnemonics, absurdity can be helpful. "Pals might make noise kicking Tupperware saucepans to free valuable space." Yes saucepans are not made of Tupperware; that is part of the absurdity. Anyway, I've had no trouble remembering these since I made that one up a while back!
