All well and good.


But I’d prefer more “countries” to work, not less countries.

I think the definition needs to be changed to not allow a small pile of rocks sticking up out of the water where you have to build scaffolding just to get on them to something that requires X amount of land area etc. 

Scaffold rocks aks BS rocks was a political thing. 

Every entity named below has significant land mass.  I am not sure you could even find BS rocks on a satellite image without a microscope.

Bouvet isn’t a real country, Alaska isn’t a real country, Jan Mayen isn’t a real country, Desecheo isn’t a real country.....  and so on.

BS7, Scarborough Reef, IS NOT a real country. It should be deleted.
