Europe isn't a country at all. It is a continent.

Technically speaking America (on its own) is a country, North America and South America make up the Americas which are two continents :P

That depends on what part of the world you were educated in.

Why is 'meget mere' also correct (or at least suggested)? Aren't countries countable items, shouldn't only 'mange flere' be right?

'Meget mere' is not correct, it should be 'mange flere' as you suggest :)

I can't answer your question but translating the meaning of meget mere to english, it would be something more like much more

It depends on whether you're referring to the other countries (mange flere) or something more general, like culture or people, or just the remaining landmass if you like (meget mere). So both are okay.

Agreed, in a non-political sense. (It'd be nice to see Greenland in these lessons, too.)

Politically, that is arguable.
