paul5562 had 6: Mwxico, a clear typo IMO. I think, under the "I want to give you points" principle this should be accepted, but I'm leaving it up to DoT to make the final call. For now, I've negged it.

Let me know of any errors.

EDITED: Sorry, I mistakenly credited some of you with a correct response of Antarctica. That's been fixed. I also corrected Schliemann's score. Thanks to cheezguyty for catching those errors.
