Is there anything but forest in Siberia?! Even including the deforsted European part, still about 50% of the Russiam area are forested.

The Asian part of Russia is not in Europe, and it may feature millions of km² of forest, so no, I don't think it should be omitted. On the other hand, New Guinea should be excluded from Indonesia.

Yes, there's tundra, but it's mostly taiga.

Japan has had nationwide forestry programs for centuries in order to limit deforestation.

Great quiz! Happened to see the FAO Forest statistics this morning and made almost a similar quiz of European nations, Russia included. Only then realized the similarity to your Asian quiz. You are very welcome to check out my quiz!

Same for me, I thought of South Korea just in time. By the way, are there any figures for North Korea?

Don't have figures, but I know Korea as a whole was heavily logged during Japanese colonialism. Since then, North Korea is famous for being very over harvested and scoured for food, and as a result its mountains are mostly bare, unlike the South where they've replanted.

It's been some years since I studied this, but unless the situation has changed a great deal since (which I seriously doubt), the UN Food and and Agriculture Organization (FAO, the data source) passively conveys whatever junk data countries provide. In Asia, this was especially apparent for Burma / Myanmar, where in spite of widespread unrestrained logging, the forest area of the country was magically expanding every year. Remote sensing is beginning to allow some honesty, though still at a crude scale, and I doubt that FAO (or any other UN organizations) are utilizing it. (They don't want to upset member nations.)

I hope that New Guinea is excluded from Indonesia's count, since that island is not in Asia.

It's hard to imagine that Japan has a single square meter without people in it.

See link: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.6242873,142.6519269,16.42z I find it hard to believe that anyone lives in a lake. (Keep in mind that Japan is not the same as Tokyo.)

When I saw that North Korea wasn't on here, I didn't even bother with South Korea. 9/10 is good enough I suppose.
