and DPRK or Democratic People's Republic of Korea should be accepted for North Korea. ROK or Republic of Korea should be accepted for South Korea. They are on all the quizzes I make myself... but changing them on every other countries quiz on the site would be a big hassle, I'm sure.

Why not just type 'East Germany' after 'DDR' hasn't worked? You get long enough to do the quiz and unlimited attempts.

Technically... he still had the same position as before: leader of the Republic of China. It was just that the location of government shifted and the area that the country maintained sovereign control over shrank drastically.

You're right and you're wrong. Cromwell was Lord Protector of the "Commonwealth of England, Scotland and Ireland." That would be, however, a little wordy for a Jetpunk quiz. And you will notice that other answers refer to the country or empire that the individual ruled, e.g., Julius Caesar ruled Rome.

Dictator, though it usually has negative connotations, does not mean an evil or unpopular ruler- it merely means someone with absolute power, but these days when democracy is so highly valued, that is seen negatively. The Wikipedia entry expresses it much better.

I don't think Oliver Cromwell should be named as a dictator as he was more of a liberator because King Charles I was quite the asshole.

22/22! I <3 Dictators! Relevant story about Park Chung Hee: I was in the ROK recently and visited the presidential retreat, which has a small museum that showcases former presidents' typical use of the grounds. While standing in front of Park Chung Hee's display, an elderly Korean woman with her approaching middle-aged son walk by and she says, MOM: "PARK CHUNG HEE?! Why is he here?" SON: "He was a president." MOM: "I know that, but he was horrible!" Ok, maybe not the most interesting story but related nevertheless.

He only took extreme measures to control all politics in France including having his former friends and associates and all political rivals executed? Presiding over "the terror" and eventually being executed himself for his role in this?
