Asked in Asia, Continents

What countries are on the South Asian sub-continent?

User Avatar
There is more than one definition describing South or Southern Asia. According to the United Nations, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Burma, India, Iran, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka are the only South Asian countries. However, the Maldives, Tibet, and the British Indian Ocean Territory (while not all countries) are widely considered to be a part of the South Asian region. The word "sub-continent" does alter things, though. The United States Department of State has had a definition of the Indian (or South Asian) subcontinent since the year 1959. They identify the subcontinent as including the nations of Afghanistan, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka only. This also seems culturally accurate, as Bangladesh and Burma could be included in Southeast Asia, while Iran would be accepted as part of the Middle East.

Asked in Puerto Rico, Continents

In what continent is Puerto Rico in?

User Avatar
Puerto Rico is part of North America, physically and politically. Puerto Rico is part of Insular America. The Caribbean is not considered North, Central or South American. The British Virgin Islands are part of the UK, politically, but they're not considered Europe. Ergo, the same is applied to any other colony in the Caribbean.

Asked in Continents

What are the three smallest countries on the continent?

User Avatar
Well first off, if you are talking about the entire world, the list would look like this: Vatican City (Approx. 0.17 sq. mi) Monaco (Approx. 0.8 sq. mi) Nauru (Approx. 8 sq. mi) Weird facts about each Vatican City id located inside Rome. It's so small that the entire country does not have a single street address. Monaco is only 382 yards wide and it's roughly the size of New York's Central Park. Nauru is the world's smallest island nation, the smallest independent republic, and the only republic in the world without an official capital.

Asked in Australia, Continents, Islands

Is Australia an island or continent or both?

User Avatar
Geographically, Australia is a continent, not an island. As a landform, it could be considered an island as it is entirely surrounded by water and not joined onto any other land mass. For this reason, it is often referred to as an island continent. Australia is too big to be formally classified as an island. The world's largest island is Greenland. Another reason why Australia is also considered a continent is because it sits on its own tectonic plate. This is different from Greenland, which uses the same land mass as North America. That is why the geological appearances are much different in Australia from anywhere else. A place like Greenland shares the same geologic attributes as North America. Australia and Antarctica are the only two true Continental Islands. That is, they are separated from all other continents by water. All other continents are connected by a landmass to at least one other Continent. If there are any waterways, they have been artificially created. Australia is the smallest continent and the 6th largest country, with an area of 7,686,850 sq km. A Continent
