Austalia would be the country. Australasia or Oceania is the continent. It's like calling Canadians American :-)

My contry!

Muito legal essa pesquisa, meu voto é para o Brasil.

Brazil is the Java's Country !

Central America and the Caribeans?

I wonder what the folks in Panama, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, etc.. are saying now.. What about Central America and the Caribeans?? Though America is a single continent, it is often divided in 3. Of course, many US americans believe anything south of Texas is "South America" when in fact South America's northernmost countries are Venezuela and Colombia! Mexico, of course, is the southernmost NORTH American country.. So if I were living in Central America or the Caribean I'd be a little peeved right now.

New Zealand, Indonesia ... !!! Only Australian can to be programmers ?!

carribean

well, which continent carribeans belong to ? North America?

carribean

I would assume someone living in the carribeans should know about on which continent (s)he this ;) greets from old europe

Not every country is a part of a continent. New Zealand for instance, is an island (well a few islands actually) and not part of a continent at all. Australia is the closest continent to New Zealand but New Zealand is definitely not a part of it. New Zealand is part of Oceania but that's a region not a continent. The question should have been related to regions instead of continents as every country is in a region and most regions are just an expanded form of the continent anyway.

Missing option

What about all the Antarcticans! Does their continent no longer count? I refuse to use the term insensitive clod however. ;-)

Missing option

I actually had a bet on how long it would take for someone to post this objection. I deliberately left off this option and did not include "Other" either although I was tempted to add the option "None, I am incontinent."

Missing option

So am I, except I prefer to think of it as extra-continent, It is all you who managed to choose an option that are in-continents.

Missing option

What about code written for things like the Mars rovers? Are there continents on Mars? And what about deep space probes which aren't destined for any particular planet? "Other" should have been an option. :-(
