As far as I have seen, these "Country True or False?" quizzes almost always have a last question with a bizarre/outlandish statement, which almost always turns out to be false.

Great quiz!

Just a remark about the languages: besides Spanish, the co-official languages are Catalan, Valencian, Galician, Basque and Aranese. Aranese is actually the Occitan language.

Asturian is not an Occitan language; it is part of the Astur-Leonese branch and it is just considered a regional language, same as Aragonese and Leonese.

Just a little correction: Valencian and Catalan are the same language.

The title is Espana Verdado(true) o Falso(False)

The options would be Verdado and Falso

The directions would be: ¿Puedes adivinar si estas afirmaciones sobre España son verdados o Falsos?

I can't translate the rest though. I'm not good enough at Spanish.

Great quiz and belated congrats on the feature :)

I got Question 13 wrong, because I thought it was a trick question. There are in fact Spanish mainland communities further south than Andalusia: Ceuta and Melilla.

Granted, we're talking about African mainland as these are tiny exclaves surrounded by Morocco, but they are both autonomous (since 1995) and Spanish and mainland, so I would argue that they qualify.

If you changed the question to "...European mainland..." that would make it work ;)
