King Kong doesn't count

The clue asked which constitutional monarchy's citizens drove around with a car sticker of HKJ. Two of them guessed Hong Kong; the third guessed that, but changed it to Jamaica.

People. Have you ever heard of the king of Hong Kong? It's part of China, after all.

I'm not saying Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan should have leapt to your mind, but ... Hong Kong? Really?

(And yes I know, Final Jeopardy, they can't not answer - or at least not answering won't keep them from losing money, but still. I'd rather put a blank than an answer like Hong Kong is a constitutional monarchy)

Husband and I hotly debated this one all throughout the music, and then some. By a process of elimination he was convinced it had to be somewhere in the Middle East, but neither of us could come up with anything to fit that criterion. I immediately thought of Hong Kong, but like you realized it's not a monarchy -- albeit having been leased (?) by Great Britain (thus, having had a monarch) till late last century. Neither of us got the answer, however, before Alex did the reveal.

On the plus side, at least the clue wasn't for a place with 3-letter code OBX :-)

Oh, that would be dirty pool!
