And Cyprus exists in the space between spaces. Just like the aliens from Indiana Jones 4.
Also, I love how people on this site will argue about the UK in every quiz that asks about it.
Scandinavia is occasionally used as a synonym but more properly is Sweden, Norway and Denmark as per relessness
- Norway / Sweden (the Scandinavian peninsula, but can also include parts of Finland and Russia)
- Norway / Sweden / Denmark (a linguistic definition, and the most common)
- Norway / Sweden / Denmark / Finland / Iceland (= Nordic countries, a cultural definition also including islands like Greenland and Faroes etc)
Sometimes a certain definition is more appropriate depending on the context, and all are fine and correct if properly explained.
"In English usage, Scandinavia can refer to Denmark, Norway, and Sweden, sometimes more narrowly to the Scandinavian Peninsula, or more broadly to include the Åland Islands, the Faroe Islands, Finland, and Iceland."
"The United Kingdom consists of four countries: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland."
Cyprus is just a matter of genuine dispute, which is OK!
"Sources alternatively place Cyprus in Europe, or Western Asia and the Middle East."
