Enjoyed this one. I'm surprised more people don't know South Ossetia... as its a war zone.

I suspect many more people will know about S. Ossetia after the Olympics at nearby Sochi, as it will surely be brought up by the broadcasters. How many people will pay attention (or care enough) though?

North & South Ossetia were united until Stalin gave half of it to his Home-Country (Georgia).

Yes another mistake by a Russian leader. The leader who gave Crimea to Ukraine way back when was from Ukraine... Now Russia wants it back. Now South Ossetia is a war zone. All because of Russia.

@bepop44, Source please? From what I could find, the USSR only detached regions from Georgia.

Not correct. South Ossetia doesn't exist. It's a Georgian region called-Samachablo. No one united north and "south" ossetias. The "southern" one has always been within Georgia. Only after Georgian-Russian war in 2008 it was occupied and called "south ossetia''. It's an autonomous region. Stalin was georgian but he didn't really care about...

@Gyrenaica, Would not surprise me, Stalin also was the person who made the really complicated borders with Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan as a way of making sure they wouldn't want to get independence, but that plan is backfiring as there is a lot of problems in that area because of that.

This was really far too easy. You ought to add in some more difficult regions, or reduce the time considerably.

Recently, Czech Republic changed their name to Czechia. Just thought you should edit the quiz.

Not quite - they adopted Czechia as a short form of Czech Republic, which remains the official name. Though I do wish Czechia were accepted in more quizzes, as it speeds up typing and I'm lazy.
