It is heavily debated whether Cyprus is in Europe or Asia. It has cultural ties to both Greece in Europe and Turkey in Asia and lies geographically between the two continents. Despite often thinking of Cyprus as a European country, I have come to the conclusion that it is in fact located in Asia. But that's just my personal opinion.

The island of Cyprus is situated in Asia, all the people on Cyprus are Europeans. Any Asians living in Cyprus can choose who they are. Anyone living in Cyprus who is not European or Asian should not partake in Jet Punk quizzes.

All of these countries are indisputably in Asia. The boundary cuts through Russia, passes through Istanbul, reaches the northernmost point of the Caspian Sea, then follows its western border down to Turkey, where it follows the western border of Turkey, cuts through international waters to take in Cyprus, and returns to follow the border of Israel down to the Egypt, where it takes a left and heads off down the eastern border of the Red Sea. This includes Cyprus, the Caucuses countries, and Turkey, keeping to national conventions.

Turkey is most definitely NOT Asia. Most of Turkey is part of Asia, but the small part on the western side of the Bosphorous is part of Europe. It is not either or, it's both. Just like Russia.

I don't want to come down on either side, but I don't think that is a good enough reason to count it as European, since there are islands close to the Tunisian coast, say, which are Tunisian. To say any island in the Mediterranean is European because most are European isn't logical.

I wouldn't say that's a logical extension of the EU argument- Instrumental is not saying that a country is in Europe if AND ONLY IF it is in the EU, they are just saying that a country is in Europe IF it is in the EU. There is a subtle but key difference.

That's not even subtle. That's like saying if one sinks to the bottom of the ocean they die, and then saying all those people who lie in graves without having sunk to the bottom of the ocean are not dead!

Actually, Monaco is the most densely populated country in the world and Vatican is just behind it. These countries are so small that even a few thousand people can make them the most densely populated countries in the world.

The thing is, I think the majority of the people on this site learn the Countries of the World quiz and therefore pick up on the tiny little countries they may have not known about before. It's then pretty simple to get the majority of countries on this list. That was how I succeeded anyway. :D
