Hah! I bet it's forcing "island" as a synonym for "Ireland".

New Zealand web pages are chock full of references to "north island" and "south island".

Too fuzzy again. [PersonRank 10]

Yes searching for Google South Africa and Google Egypt you will also get New Zealand. Searching for Google Argentina will give you Google Brazil.
