Proper nounEdit

Oceania

  1. A geographical region composed of many islands (Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia) plus Australasia. It is located between Asia, Antarctica and the Americas.

Usage notesEdit

Despite the fact that Oceania is technically not a continent, some people use the term when referring to the continents of the world in place of the Australian continent, mostly because the Australian continent only contains four countries (Australia, Papua New Guinea, East Timor, and Indonesia,) and because the other thirteen Oceanian countries are located in the Pacific Ocean and would otherwise be unable to be classified within a continent.

Oceania contains the following countries:
