By that logic all of North America and Mainland Europe would be here as they're attached... Not what the question is asking though.

Maldives threw me for a while. I was straining to think of a Southeast Asian country I'd forgotten. I knew Singapore was about 1 degree north, I wondered if some outlying island of Malaysia or the Philippines dipped below. With Malaysia running south of Brunei, there was no chance it made it if Malaysia didn't.

France has five overseas departments (they are the French Equivalent of States/Provinces) and two of them (Reunion and Mayotte) are in the southern hemisphere.

Jul 13, 2017
Yes, and they're not overseas territory like the Falklands are for the UK, but they are actual France. If a southern rock counts for Sao Tome, two much larger rocks should count for France.

Mayotte (located between Madagascar and Mozambique) has been an integral part of France since March 31, 2011. Therefore France ought to be a correct answer in this quiz (in the Africa section).

The instructions exclude overseas territories. If it didn't, we should also include the UK and Norway due to their claims in Antarctica.

It's not the same at all. Reunion and Mayotte are departements. If Hawaii were south of the equator, would the USA have been excluded from this quiz?

This doesn't fix the problem, now the caveats just don't make sense. It's nice to know, but France should still be included.

Equatorial Guinea is actually entirely about the equator, other than this mistake it is a great quiz
