How come this and #7 aren't in the "Name a Valid Country" series? One of my favourite quiz-types on the site :)

BTW 20 grams of fish isn't much for a whole country...

It is because the Name a Valid Country series is technically Quizmaster's, not ours, so we do not have the power to add 6 & 7

Common misconception. Recognition is not the same as no diplomatic relations. They recognise everyone but keep diplomatic relations with only handful of countries.

Has the United States not been visited at least thirty times by U.S. presidents? (I get why it's not included, but might be good to include a disclaimer.)

I don't think, definitionally, it counts as visiting if it's the country you live in. I can't visit my own house. And sure, a President based in Washington D.C. can visit Seattle, but you wouldn't say they are visiting the US when they do that.

Great quiz. The equator question is a bit iffy. Some of the countries listed are definitely crossed by the equator, albeit not through land.

Cyprus isn't recognized by all countries of the UN? First I've heard of it as a Cypriot person, think you meant the Republic of Northern Cyprus which is not recognized by any nation other than Turkey. Please update this.

According to Wikipedia, Cyprus is not recognised by Turkey.
