In that case, you should accept Dakota for America, and British North America for Canada. Holland is not a country.

True, Holland isn't a country, but it's where the majority of the population of the Netherlands lives. It's less comparable with calling America "Dakota" as it is with calling the UK "England" or "Britain".

Mangoking North Holland and South Holland are just provinces of the Netherlands, they are definitely not 'another name' for the country. You might as well also call it Groningen, because that's also one of the provinces.

So everybody seems to accept Ukraine is that far north as to make it on this quiz?! It's on the damn Black Sea, which makes it practically Mediterranian! Took me a bit to guess that one. And still it makes it further north than Mongolia. Yep, signing up for club "Mongolia, you are further north than that, right?".

Eh? It goes quite a way north from the Black Sea coast. Did you look at a map? The northern point of the Ukraine is clearly further north than the most northerly part of Mongolia.

The reason why Mongolia is so cold is because it is located on a plateau, so if that's why you thought it was that far north then it's a common mistake.

What kind of logic is this? USA and China are partly in the tropics, and Russia is on the Black Sea/Mediterranean as well. Ukraine is not that small and despite having nice warm beaches in summer, it has evry cold winters.

I think part of the confusion is that the Mediterranean is further north than one would think. NYC is south of Rome, and the beaches at Odessa are further north than Minneapolis or Montreal.

Has Ireland ever been significant in global terms? No empire, no big population (even before the Famine), no big economy to rival other great countries. If anything, it kicks above its weight already (mostly through culture).

Go to Google Maps. Right click on the northernmost point in the Ukraine and left click 'What's here?'. It will display the latitude (the first number). You will notice that Ukraine's northernmost point is north of Mongolia's.

I love all the people disputing the answers to this, especially the 'But Mongolia is north of China!' crowd. Objectively that is not the case, Manchuria, specifically Heilongjiang, is more northerly. If you really don't believe it, Google Maps or Google Earth can display the latitude of any point. It's very easy to check.
