geo.placemaker for curacao returning an incorrect city instead of the country.

First, Curacao is an island nation. Here's the wikipedia page.

However, when I hit geo.placemaker with the string "curacao" I get random city in Venezuela:

  <place xmlns="http://wherein.yahooapis.com/v1/schema">
                    <woeId>383422</woeId>
                    <type>Town</type>
                    <name><![CDATA[Curazaito, Zulia, VE]]></name>
                    <centroid>
                        <latitude>10.3833</latitude>
                        <longitude>-71.3333</longitude>
                    </centroid>
                </place>

Any idea why this might be happening?
