On some of your complete world map or world capitals Quizzes, there seems to be an agreement of 196 countries on the planet today. But then it seems like the individual maps should support these numbers. and having Egypt show up twice and including Palestine throw the total numbers off. Maybe you could have a different color/title for any lands that are included but that are not actual countries of the world (like French Guiana, etc.)....? thanks
New Caledonia (France)
French Polynesia (France)
US Virgin Islands (US)
British Virgin Islands (UK)
St Martin (Nederlands/France)
However, that said, Palestine has a (disputed, fragmented) government, they have a flag, they collect some tax revenue and exercise some civic authority, to varying degrees in different unconnected places. What Daesh most notably has that "Palestine" lacks is control over their own borders and territory, and a stable and centralized undisputed government.

Wow. Just wow.
Good quiz but some would say that the Palestinian Territories aren’t technically speaking a ‘country’ of their own.
Israel isn't even a legitimate country.
Good enough for a fetus
That is not all, but if I elaborate, the chances this comment gets deleted go up to 100%.
"There's nothing political about accepting reality, and the reality is that Palestine is recognised as a country by most (137 of 196; 70%) of the world's countries. That recognition level is far greater than Kosovo (108) or Taiwan (23). It also has UN observer status, which is the same UN status as Vatican City, unlike Kosovo and Taiwan, which have no UN status at all."
It had 120 likes. Now that it's deleted, many of the most liked comments are anti-Palestine, sometimes viciously so. Reading these comments gives a vastly skewed view of what this site's users actually overwhelmingly believe.
