Countries of Europe A blank Map of Europe. Every country has an id which is its ISO-3166-1-ALPHA2 code in lower case. Members of the EU have a class="eu", countries in europe (which I found turkey to be but russia not) have a class="europe". Certain countries are further subdivided the United Kingdom has gb-gbn for Great Britain and gb-nir for Northern Ireland. Russia is divided into ru-kgd for the Kaliningrad Oblast and ru-main for the Main body of Russia. There is the additional grouping #xb for the "British Islands" (the UK with its Crown Dependencies - Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man) Contributors.

Don't go buy Eurovision, they tried to get syria or one of those middle eastern countries in, but they wouldn't recognise Israel for voting purposes. As far as Russia goes, given that most Russian history took place in "European" Russia, and most of "Asian" Russia is empty of people, and that the capital is in Europe, I would say that russia is at least acceptable in a countries of europe quiz.

i think that you need to add in Cyprus and Turkey

Cyprus is not geographically a part of Europe even though it's in the European Union. Also, Eurovision doesn't only have European countries competing in it. There are also some countries from the Middle East and Caucasia. Once even a country from Africa, Morocco competed. Russia should be counted as a part of Europe as well since its capital, most of its population and history are in Europe. Also, around one third of Europe's area is Russia. Turkey only has a small part of it in Europe so it's not actually needed here. Georgia and Azerbaijan have the same thing as Turkey.

Border between Europe and Asia is generally considered to be the Ural mountains. As a result, the following countries are in europe: Russia, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan...and of course Cyprus. Turkey is partially in Europe also.
Oct 25, 2012
(69)
From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Europe: "Europe is generally 'divided' from Asia by the watershed divides of the Ural and Caucasus Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian and Black Seas, and the waterways connecting the Black and Aegean Seas." By that definition, (see the map on said page for visual reference) 5 countries span the division: Russia, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Georgia, and Turkey. The latter four have a very small piece in europe, relative to the size of their respective countries. The bulk of Russia's population, however, resides in the European section of the country, so it is generally considered European, even without considering the Kalinigrad exclave between Poland and Lithuania. Also, note that Cyprus is clearly Asian.
Oct 26, 2012

Cyprus is clearly European. It is not part of the Asiatic mainland. It's historical heritage is Greek/Turkish. It is in the EU and uses the Euro as it's currency. I'm sure you'll find Cypriots would not consider themselves Asian at all.
Oct 26, 2012
(69)
Seriously, look at the map. Cyprus is separated from Europe by ASIA Minor. Sure it's not part of the Asiatic "mainland" (and neither are Japan, Taiwan, Philippines, etc) but it is part of the Asiatic tectonic plates. National Heritage is irrelevant, or else we might as well include Australia in Europe due to it's history in the British Empire. Similarly, EU membership is meaningless to the discussion of where a country is geographically--even the US was approached with membership in the EU. Guess we'll have to jump across the pond. Lastly-- I know several Cypriots, of Greek, Turkish and (gasp) mixed descent. About the only thing they agree on when it comes to Cyprus is that it is located off the Asian, and not European, coast.
Nov 15, 2012

Dividing the world up according to plate tectonics would be interesting and for once something not mostly arbitrary, but that's not how the continents have ever been divided. If they had, then the Philippines are their own continent and part of Russia is in North America.

@kalbahamut, Yeah, and we'd have to count the Pacific Ocean as a continent, whic is ridiculous in the extreme.

Missing Cyprus (member state of the EU) and Turkey (which although its capital isn't in Europe, is most definitely a European State given that it owns land in Europe and share more with Europe than it does with Asia; /controversial).

You're missing armenia and cyprus

Vatican City tripped me up. On several of the other quizzes it is down as just "Vatican" but on this one it must be "Vatican City." Maybe Vatican City, Czech Republic, and Bosnia and Herzegovina could all be the same where you only have to type the first part of the name.
Feb 10, 2014
Quizmaster
Just Vatican will work now. Thanks.

Cyprus should definitively be in : it's half greek and turkish, it has the Euro, and all sports teams in the different sports (football, basketball...) plays in European competitions, not Asian...
Mar 14, 2014
(32)
I think countries that cause discussions like that (Cyprus, Turkey in that case) should just be in the quiz whatsoever. If there's an Asian version there as well. I'm sure even people who are from these countries are in two minds about it.

Turkey and Cyprus are like Russia. They can both fit into Europe and Asia. If it has to go in one, I would say turkey and Russia in Asia and Cyprus in Europe
Apr 19, 2014

Since Ukraine is in Europe. If you draw a straight line down then most of turkey is in Europe and that would make cypus in Europe. Cyprus is equal distance from turkey as it is Syria
Apr 19, 2014
(61)
Or since Europe is north of the tropic of capricorn then you can draw a straight line too and even China and Usa are Europe! -- There's a sea in between Ukraine and Turkey. Seas/oceans separate continents. On another note: I forgot Croatia! I surely know it's there. That's what I get for not doing it any sort of order.

So many little kids raging about how Cyprus and Turkey aren't on the list, get over yourselves!

So, you're saying that because you don't want to engage in a perfectly legitimate geographical discussion, that somehow makes you SO much mature? Get over yourselves!

Could a map be added so we can learn where they are? Like on the 50 states or the world countries, so it colours in green when you get it right?

Cyprus is part of Europe and turkey is split into two, Europe and asia, that is why they made 2 capitals. Istanbul side of turkey is Europe the rest is asia.
Oct 15, 2014

proof Cyprus is a European country... this says they are part of the European union http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyprus Turkey is split in two according to this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkey

You could admit Japan into the EU. It's a political distinction, not a geographic one.

100% on the first try because I've been taking the Countries of the World quiz a bunch of times, trying to get them all. It's nice to have a zoomed-in map so I can see where all those little ones like San Marino and Liechtenstein are actually located.

Since there seems to be so much disagreement about which countries should be included, why not simply change the caveat to read, "All countries which have any parts of their territory included in Europe," and that might lighten the discussion.

Since when is Crimea a part of Russia?

Also European: Cyprus - Part of Uefa, Part of Eurozone, Culturally linked to Europe, Geographically European (like all Mediterranean islands are) Turkey - Turkey is part in Europe and part in Asia (as is Russia, which is included here) Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia - During Soviet era, the USSR was part European, part Asian. The dividing line between the 2 was (and still is) the Ural Mountain range. the 3 countries above were part of Europe then (when they were Soviet territories) and still are (now they're independent countries).

Oops. Said Croatia, meant Bosnia. Croatia's Eurozone, Bosnia isn't.

Not trying to be awkward here but 1 is not prime. A prime number can be divided by 1 AND itself, whereas 1 can only be divided by either 1 or itself as 1 is itself.
Nov 20, 2014
(69)
@relesness, thanks for the correction! With all the different associations in Europe (EU, Eurozone, Shengen, EEA, Customs Union, Free Trade Assoc) it's hard to keep them all straight.

@flamingfiremage, you're right of course*. I was venting, and one should never let the facts get in the way of a good tirade.

*though you left out the word 'only.' By your definition as written, all whole numbers are prime.

Russia is rightfully included in this quiz as a large part of it is in Europe. If part of European Russia were to be declared independent from Russia and became a nation of its own, it would surely continue to be European. In the days of the Soviet Union, it was also part of Europe. Several parts of the European part of the USSR (West of the Urals) declared independence. These were Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Armenia. As a result, Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan are, and always have been European (geographically as well as clearly culturally.

Yay! Dozens or even hundreds (some too old) of people arguing against international standards! The reason we even have global standards on continent borders is so people would one day stop arguing over what is one continent and what's another.

Cyprus is made up of Greek & Turkish related peoples. Greece is Europe and West Turkey is Europe. I therefore think that Cyprus should be listed as Europe.
