Some others (such as Austria and Serbia) are rump states of multicultural empires/states that were created as legal entities immediately upon the loss of their foreign territories. However, most of the answers lost their sovereignty entirely for long periods of time before a modern nation-state was created on their territory with a questionable link to the former empire.
In order to address the dissonance that I felt as I took this quiz, I suggest giving for each answer the date on which the coastline was lost AND the name of the country at the time the coastline was lost. This would eliminate much confusion.
