That's why there's a caveat in the instructions.

Surprised not to see Singapore.

Also, Hong Kong is not a sovereign nation that is generally recognised by JetPunk.

Hong Kong should be a pre-filled answer. I get that your source for the data allowed it as an answer to the census (which was really where the issue started). I doubt a majority of quizzers would even be familiar with the acronym SAR and as such your explanatory note under the title isn't going to provide a good explanation to most quiz takers.

Did not get South Africa or Lebanon. Surprised that Turkey, Yugoslavia and Egypt are not here. Depends which parts of Australia you know best I suppose.
