Or UTC+12.

Where? In Saudi Arabia? Speaking of which, who decided it would be in UTC+3, considering that it uses the Islamic calendar? Also, what's the time in Slovenia by the Islamic calendar?

I guess, you all know this map. The difference between solar noon and local time.

No it is not.

It shows the difference between the mean noon at the nearest meridian evenly divisible by 15 and the local mean time.

The difference between the mean noon and the solar moon fluctuates about half on hour during the year according to this graph:



The difference is called Equation of Time. Due to this phenomena, the solar noon occurs at 12:00 o'clock only a few times a year.

Those unofficial time zones do not count. But the whole country of Nepal officially follows the UTC+5:45 time. It is based on the local mean time in the capital Kathmandu, which is about UTC+5:41.

Never seen that, but I do know that 75 degrees west passes about five miles (if that) east of me, so I'm all right.
