A bit clunky. I may remove the continent tab if people consider it useless. This quiz was comparatively easy to get the data for, but it was delayed greatly by trying to figure out what on earth to do with overseas territories. In particular the island of Reunion, being an integral part of France, but at the same time off the coast of Africa, provided a challenge. In the end I decided to mark France as being on the continents of Europe/Africa, and to count unintegrated territories seperately. This affects the UK, and Denmark, which have no Ultras in those countries proper, but have them in their territories, Australia, whose largest and most prominent summit is on a remote indian ocean territory, and France, which on top of Piton Neiges in Reunion has 3 additional ultras in unintegrated pacific territories.

I also did not include anything on Antarctica. The continent contains an additional 40 Ultras.
