Nope. The description names the specific excluded Micronations. Doesn't mean none are in this quiz.

Makes no sense to randomly exclude 3 countries from the quiz. Why not also exclude Malta?

Simple reason: If you check the source San Marino and Monaco are both listed with 0.0% which means there either is no conclusive data or they really do not have any forest area. The Vatican isn't listed at all.

You didn't answer the question. Your answer is as arbitrary as the quiz.

As arbitrary as lumping together Malta with San Marino or Monaco.

Ukraine is a bit of a surprise. I mean, I was there and saw no forests, but still with the size of the country and all...

Took this once and did horribly after guessing plenty of desert nations. Then saw the answers, and thought "huh I guess most of these countries are in Europe for some reason." Then I checked the title of the quiz. WOMP WOMP

I thought Malta would not be in this quiz because it is so small. Way to small to be in this quiz.

Got a few obvious ones and then just started guessing randomly... plenty of time to name every country in Europe.

Yes, but that didn't help people like me who completely forgot Moldova, and thought I'd already typed Denmark. I had time left but just couldn't figure out which ones I was missing.

What's the purpose of arbitrarily excluding three of the micronations from this quiz? I'll go out on a limb and contend that, when the title is straight forward, most people don't bother reading the little caveats. So it just complicates things and makes the quiz more confusing than it needs to be. I would assume that you excluded those micronations so that the answers would be more difficult to think of. If this is the case, you could easily make it a "Top 15" quiz. It just counterproductive to take answers off the list.

Sad to see that our once 'green & pleasant land' now only has 13% of forest.
