The same problem applies to Michael's much more elaborate effort
at the same statement.

As to what data would be used, I would suppose the official government
population figures for the applicable national government in question.

However, I think Leo did a better job of directly expressing what I was
attempting to express indirectly.  The problem is not population  
it is geography.

The reality is that I think the policy could apply as follows:

Any nation where 70% or more of their land mass consists of islands.
