Australia and New Zealand do count. They come under "Oceania"!!!


Authorities differ about what constitutes Oceania which is more usually understood to mean all the islands in the Pacific, while Australia, New Zealand and New Guinea are jointly called Australasia.

when Great Britain was the center of the world and the known universe, Japan was, and probably may well be, located at the far right of the map - where the water falls off the edge.


Right... the sun never goes down on the British empire

The polls are a fun tool which generate discussion which are sometimes quite stimulating and sometimes, hey, they are even fun!

Considering the poster's name (Fernandes), I'd say he is Brazilian. In Brasil, we call "Australasia" "Oceania". This is likely why he added that as a continent.

Yesterday, I though it was because our colleagues in America were still sleeping, but it didn't change. Is it because Americans do not participate in polls?
