Which country fills in the yellow cell?

enter image description here

A cell becomes empty when no country meets the criterion that the country in a non-empty cell meets.


1 Answer 1


The country in yellow is

Turkey, or as they would insist I refer to it as, Türkiye


The middle cell represents 0°N 0°E (aka Null Island), and each other cell represents a step of 10 degrees north/south and east/west from an adjacent cell. Thus, the yellow cell is at 40°N 40°E, which is located in Turkey.
