45. Qatar

46. Bahrain

And then there are the debatable ones.

47. Hong Kong

48. Turkey

49. Russia

50. Cyprus

51. Philippines

Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Palau, Nauru, Tuvalu, Kiribati, Vanuatu, Samoa, Fiji, Tonga, Micronesia, the Marshall Islands and the Solomon Islands are all located in Oceania.

Egypt is not Asia. Today the Middle East is classified as Asia, but was always considered Northeast Africa in the times before the Crusades and the construction of the Suez Canal.
