Travelers Century Club considers the following "countries" that have not been separately pictured above: Java, Bali, Sumatra, and Sulawesi (Indonesia) are considered separate as are Tanzania and Zanzibar,  Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands,  Columbia and San Andreas/Providencia, European and Asiatic Turkey,  and Israel and Palestine.  Additionally, I can include the good old USA.
Not included are Bangladesh, The UAE , Great Britain, Hawaii, and Alaska where I have touched the soil due to layover/transfer.
