How Many Countries?

We just ran across this website, which allows us to click on a list of countries to come up with a html code that enables us to reproduce a map of the world, the red areas indicating the 72 countries it states we've visited.

If we use as our reference an atlas that only lists countries by political divisions, we've visited "only" 65*. If we rely on the Century Club's more extensive list, we've visited 82.
