  • Sources are invalid or broken "There are no sources for this, as Antartica has no permanent human population or government."
  • Status is not correct "Antarctica has no legally recognized population, so there is an equal age of consent in Antarctica: N/A"

  • Status is not correct "The first part is right ("no permanent human population") but, for the most part, not the second part ("no government").
