Example: Martinique belongs to France, but is nearer to Venezuela than to mainland France. So if the hint is "416 km from Venezuela" the answer is "France". Both countries must have some continental portion (island nations are excluded). The distance is e.g. from Martinique to mainland Venezuela (not to other Venezuelan islands). Islands may have any political status. Islands on lakes or those under disputed sovereignty are excluded. Maximum distance 400 km (249 miles).
