The Quiz: Pheasant Island changes hands between which two nations every six months?

Canada and the U.S.
France and Spain
Argentina and Chile
North and South Korea

Explanation : After France and Spain’s Thirty Years War, the two countries needed a neutral spot to sign the Treaty of the Pyrenees. They established a condominium — a political territory that two or more sovereign powers agree — on Pheasant Island, on the border between southwestern France and northeastern Spain. Since then, a ceremony at the six-month split has handed control of the uninhabited (visitors are forbidden) island back and forth more than 700 times.

Correct Answer: France and Spain
