Belgium has some small hills, but Dutch highest peak is in the Caribbean.

Even if you just limit to mainland Netherlands, Vaalserberg is 322.4 metres high which is just outside this quiz's range.

I bet they’d be there if it were average elevation, rather than maximum.

Interesting fact this quiz reminded me about: Latvia's highest point, being slightly shorter than neighbouring Estonia's, led to the Latvian's building a tower on top of theirs. Unfortunately it was demolished in 2012 due to safety risks and the Latvians again have to accept being looked down upon by Estonians.

Poor Latvians, btw the highest church of Estonia is also 45 cm higher than Latvia's.

I don't doubt that Monaco belongs here, but for anyone who has visited they can attest it is decidedly not flat.

Well given that it only extends a little more than a kilometre away from the ocean having a maximum elevation of 161 isn't very flat anyways. Show me another country with one side length only being 10 times as long as the highest mountain measured from its foot.

A bit of cheating, but Chile gets there if you allow width. At the narrowest point Chile is 64 km wide and the highest point is Ojos del Salado at 6891 meters

True but a lot of the upper hills around Monaco are actually across the border into France not in Monaco itself.

17/20. I missed an obvious European one (retrospectively it is obvious, but it didn't spring to mind at the time), another European one that I missed because I didn't read the rubric, and an African one that seems obvious now, but again, I didn't get it in the time allowed. Great quiz, thanks Nathaniel.

I'm curious about your source. In the Maldives, the highest natural point is generally cited (I've actually never seen it cited otherwise) at 2 metres above sea level at high tide, with approximately 80% of all land at 1 metre or lower. At that level, three metres is a pretty big difference.

I'm sorry to say this, but I don't know anymore. I used to have the source in a caveat, but when the quiz was featured, that caveat was removed.

lowest MAX elevation. All it takes is one tall hill to push it outside the boundaries of the quiz. Panama has an 3400 meter volcano, Belgium has a plateau at 694 meters, and the Netherlands have a high point at 323 meters. Just outside the limits of the quiz.
