This is one of those rare instances where a geography/religion quiz is advertised on the front page to be hard, and it actually is.

Anyone who did well on this one might like to take a crack at this:

I feel like a traitor (as a Finn), but there's a Lapland in Sweden as well and that should be an acceptable answer. (Possibly Norway too, but I feel that's a stretch.)

Well, I live in the northern-most region of Norway, Finnmark, and we would probably be ~slightly~ upset if you called it Lappland.

Lapland*. Sorry, the Norwegian spelling is Lappland...

I think so too. And French Polynesia should be accepted for Tahiti.

Why? French Polynesia isn't a country.

Because technically Tahiti and the rest of French Polynesia aren't part of France proper, just like Jersey or Bermuda are neither a part of England nor of the UK.

To the user 'eibe', it's different case for the UK and France. Jersey is a British Crown Dependency while Bermuda is a British Overseas Territory, which are never part of the UK, although under its possession. But, all overseas territories of France (French Polynesia, Guadeloupe, to name a few) are all integral parts of France according to its constitution, so they are all parts of France.

Based on the Wikipedia article I think it's fair to include Sweden, Norway, and Russia. Especially Sweden, where Lapland is the name of a historical province and still has an enormous cultural importance.

I might be wrong (if so correct me) but I think the prairie provinces it's just a geographic reagion of Canada, not an admnistrative province (it includes in fact Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba).

That's Moldova, which is different from Moldavia. Although I admit I also needed this quiz to learn there's a region called 'Moldavia' in Romania.

they're kind-of both called Moldavia and both called Moldova, but Moldavia is the official name of the region of Romania and Moldova is the official name of the independent country

There had once been a medieval principality of Moldavia, which was, over centuries, partitioned by neighboring powers like Ottomans, Russia and Austria-Hungary. What was left independent, united with Principality of Wallachia in XIX century, creating Romania. These lands make the Moldavia region in modern-day Romania. The part annexed by Russia (where Romanian has also been a predominant language) was given back to Romania after WWI, but after WWII, Stalin decided to annex it back to USSR, creating the Moldavian Soviet Socialistic Republic (it had actually existed for several years before on terrains near the Romanian border because Soviets wanted to take back all lands that had belonged to Russian empire), which gained independence after dissolution of USSR as Moldova. The topic of reunification with Romania comes back every now and then but so far it doesn't have enough support among the Moldovan population.

Sápmi is the whole area where the Saami live. What is asked here is the administrative region of Finland, which is called Lappi even in Sami. So, no, it's not rude, it's just correct.
