Never realized all the 'Stans are stacked one on top of the other.
Feb 28, 2012
for the 'Stans: If you start with Kazahk and rotate clockwise, their alphabetical. kazak, kyrgy, tajik, turkmen, uzbek.
Dec 19, 2012
As long as you don't include Afghanistan and Pakistan. Those are stans too.
Feb 4, 2013
Don't forget Ubeki-beki-beki-stan-stan!
Jan 31, 2014
I never realized how many 'Stans there are!
Mar 19, 2012
the 'stans.." are the tricky ones..
Apr 10, 2012

agree. Though there aren't that many of them, the rest of this map is very easy.
Apr 4, 2013
Whether the 'stans are tricky or easy may just be a generational thing. I know that I find them trickier, but some of that's because when I was a kid learning Geography all the 'stans (except for Afghanistan & Pakistan) were part of the USSR.

I actually got every -stan but missed Qatar.
Mar 15, 2014
I put Syria in Jordan before, but after learning for about 10 mins, got 100%. 'Stans are a little bit tricky, though. Just search in Google before starting the quiz.
Apr 8, 2014
i think the "stans" are the easiest!!!!

22/26 didn't get iran or iraq! how sad........
Aug 30, 2012
I agree the stans were the hardest. You don't hear much news about them and I never learnt Soviet history so I just had to guess.

Mixed Qatar with Bahrain, and Georgia with Armenia...
Feb 17, 2013
I always get oman and yemen mixed up
Feb 25, 2013
The way I remember it is that if you follow the coast around from the south, it's YOU, Yemen, Oman, UAE.
Sep 6, 2013
That's a good tip, I had trouble with those as well.
Mar 12, 2014
why isnt palestine included
Mar 30, 2013
it's not a country
Apr 4, 2013
As of Nov. 29, 2012, it is recognized by the UN as an independent state.
Jun 7, 2013
UN recognition does not make it an independent state. It was strictly a symbolic vote. According to the UN charter, "The recognition of a new State or Government is an act that only other States and Governments may grant or withhold. It generally implies readiness to assume diplomatic relations. The United Nations is neither a State nor a Government, and therefore does not possess any authority to recognize either a State or a Government." Don't get me wrong. I hope to see it included soon, but it won't be yet.
Jul 3, 2013
Sadly, it has to be the 'right' states which recognise it before it can actually operate as a state. Nearly 70% of UN member states recognise Palestine, representing 80% of the world's population. But who cares about democracy?
Nov 1, 2013
Doesn't really have much to do with it. The USA, UK, Germany, France, Russia and China could all "recognize" "Palestine" as an independent state- that would not magically grant it control over its own borders, give it a unified coherent government, define its borders, grant it a currency, or make it a sovereign entity. It's not a popularity contest, though votes in the UN often are.
Jan 8, 2014
It isn't a country yet.
Feb 10, 2014
how come turkey and cyprus are on the middle east map but not the europe
Apr 12, 2013
that is because they are part of middle east/Asia not Europe.
Jul 3, 2013
Actually,Turkey is in-between Europe and Asia,like Russia :)
Feb 23, 2014
Nice. I like the new look/interface.
May 18, 2013
How did 20% miss Afghanistan? We've only been there for 10 years.
Jul 2, 2013
We who? You do realize that the internet spans the globe, don't you? That is why it is called the WORLD WIDE web.
Oct 23, 2013
Indeed wolfcat95 :-) It's amazing that someone who obviously enjoys geography still has that close-mindedness so typical of the US citizens. Yankee there really are people from other countries that use this website and as they don't have any connection to Afghanistan, there is a possibility that they can get it's location wrong :-)
Dec 25, 2013
Well if "we" means the world and not the USA, then "we've" been there much longer than 10 years. Afghanistan has been one of the world's favorite countries to invade for about 2500 years.
Jan 8, 2014
'We' coming from someone named Yankee...hard to guess why he said that. It is true thought that we could apply to any of the other countries that took part in Afghanistan during that time period and it has been a world wide media event during that time period. It isn't Yankee's fault that you don't keep up with international news.
Feb 21, 2014
ALL CORRECT :D on first try.
Sep 24, 2013
26/26! Got a test on it tomorrow... thx for the practice!

Feb 23, 2014
I live in USA. So I'm pro at Middle East. Beast at South and North America. OK at Africa and Europe. Great at Asia.
Feb 27, 2014
YESSSS. all of them FINALLY!
Dec 12, 2013
Got all save for the stans
Dec 14, 2013
all very easy 100% every time
Feb 5, 2014
lol. More people get Afghanistan, Cyprus, and Lebanon than Israel, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and ISrael! HOW!?
Feb 10, 2014
LMFAO did Israel twice... (facepalm)
Apr 14, 2014
Egypt,in Asia!?!
Feb 23, 2014
Egypt is a transcontinental country - the area east of the Suez is considered "Asia", while most of the country is geographically "Africa". Russia, Azerbaijan and Turkey are also transcontinentals... they are both Asian and European.
Apr 17, 2014
*sigh* I have gotten Iran right more than Israel and Saudi Arabia.
Feb 26, 2014
26/26 in 3:29!
