As long as you don't include Afghanistan and Pakistan. Those are stans too.

Pakistan was part of British Raj in the past. It lies over the Indian Ocean.
Afganistan is to the north of Pakistan and borders with Iran also.
Uzbekistan is doubly landlocked country and most populated (of former soviet -stan republics). It has south part of Aral Sea (today mostly desert).
Kazakhstan is in the north, it has the largest area. It has north part of Aral Sea and has connection with Caspian Sea.
Turkmenistan is between Uzbekistan and Iran. It also has connection with Caspian Sea.
Tajikistan is not turkish speaking state, but persian. It borders with Afghanistan.
Kyrgyzstan borders with Kazakhstan, in the past was called Upper Kyrgyzstan, because Kazakhstan was called Kyrgyzstan.

agree. Though there aren't that many of them, the rest of this map is very easy.

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 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.

I got confused between Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan at first, but then I remember that Tajikistan's national language is closer to Persian and Pashto (one of Afghanistan's language) and that Kyrgyzstan's language is closer to Turkish, just like the rest of 'Stans brothers. That helps :)

Not quite for me... For me Israel and her neighbors are the easiest... maybe that's just cause I'm Jewish, though...

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.

The way I remember it is that if you follow the coast around from the south, it's YOU, Yemen, Oman, UAE.

you can memorize them if you know that yemen used to have connections with somalia in the past. Since somalia is in Africa, then yemen should be closer to africa than oman

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
(56)
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.

how come turkey and cyprus are on the middle east map but not the europe
Apr 12, 2013
(14)
that is because they are part of middle east/Asia not Europe.

Actually,Turkey is in-between Europe and Asia,like Russia :)
Feb 23, 2014

... which also isn't on either of the Asian maps. Quizmaster's pretty consistent about continent and country groupings, with the glaring exception of Egypt on this one :).

We who? You do realize that the internet spans the globe, don't you? That is why it is called the WORLD WIDE web.

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
(56)
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.

'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.

Nice. I'm from Washington state. I'm also Jewish, so I'm a pro among pros when it comes to the Middle East and Asia. I'm also good at North America and Europe, but have SERIOUS problems with Oceania, the Caribbean, and Africa. I'm average at South America. And I'm more than a little bit hurt that so few people get ISRAEL!!! A friend of mine who's retired from the military was asked a question by another friend of mine... The question was: If he was still in the army, and the US declared war on Israel, would he fight for his country? Remember, he's in the army in the question. He said no, because Israel ALWAYS wins.

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.

Georgia might be intercontinental, but AZERBAIJAN???

Sinai from Egypt is in Asia while the remaining is in Africa. But the quiz is about the middle east where Egypt is considered a part of it

I'm not too upset with 24/26. I couldn't remember which way round Oman and Yemen were, and I did stumble over which country in the Caucasus was which. I knew, really, but got flustered under pressure! I should have just taken my time. I was surprised to get the smaller "Stans" right. They're still a little hazy in my mind, so that was a fluke, I have to admit.

The "stans" are the hardest for me ... I just have to narrow them all down if I'm having trouble. Stan actually means "the land of" so Pakistan means the land of Paki. If you put your name in front of stan, it means the land of (enter your name here).

In the Eastern Med where it's always been I guess :-) Is it Asia or Europe? It's been covered a thousand times on here and continues to crop up but the majority consider it Asia although the population there seem to be mainly from European stock. So, for me it's in Eurasia.
