Nice quiz. Adding Russian areas with separatist movements too (e.g. Chechnya, Dagestan etc) might make for an even more interesting quiz.

I originally considered adding autonomous Russian republics, such as Chechnya and Dagestan, but that would also likely mean adding other autonomous states with similar status in Georgia and Azerbaijan, and I feel like a quiz of the sort may be too obscure.

Ah, I thought places like South Ossetia/Abkhazia had a similar status to the autonomous Russian republics. I'll admit, I don't know much about these places.

South Osetia and Abkhazia are independent de facto.

Chechya is a part of Russia de-jure and de facto.

So keep your dreams.

Artsakh is the official name for Nagorno-Karabakh and the name I use most often when referring to it, so you should accept it.

Good. I can never remember the term Nagorno-Karabakh correctly. I keep thinking Ngorongoro Crater Astrakhan is easier. Too bad that's a city in Russia though.

You should change the name to Artsakh rather than Nagorno-Karabakh

One thing - Jetpunk has justified excluding Palestine from the Countries of the World quiz on the single basis that it does not have "control over its borders". So shouldn't Georgia also be excluded? Its loss of control over South Ossetia and Abkhazia is so formalised that these Russian-controlled areas have names.

If we would do that then not only would Georgia not be included, but Azerbaijan, Somalia, and Morocco wouldn't be included either.

And India, China, Pakistan, Ukraine, etc... All the countries mentioned, except for Palestine, have control over their borders. They just don't control 100% of the territories they claim.

Only Palestine and Western Sahara have a horrible control over borders.

You shouldn't exclude Abkhazia and "South Ossetia" from Georgia because they are officially unrecognized regions, just under Russian occupation, The whole world claims them to be within Georgian borders and in reality they ARE Georgia.

On the other hand, if you added northern Caucasian republics, that are parts of Russia (Chechnia,Dagestan,Ingushetia,etc) The quiz would become much more interesting.

(I'm from Caucasus and I know the region quite well)

The reality of any situation is more valuable than lines drawn on a map. I would love to make a version with the Russian republics, I'll try and make it soon as I can :)

Not currently, although the majority of people there are Christian Armenians, and from what I've heard there is no hard border between Artsakh and Armenia. I hope for peace in Artsakh, Armenia and Azerbaijan.

There actually is a hard border between Armenia and Artsakh Republic, its called the Lachin Corridor, which also has Armenian population.

Artsakh is armenian because it has freed itself from Azerbaijan in 1991 by an unanimous referendum.

PS: Armenia want´s peace, AZ wants war (they restarted the war by a spontaneous and ferocious attack on September 27th of this year.)

I do not know which map shows the current controlled territory of Artsakh, although I've seen Russian provided streetview which shows no visible border controls between Armenia and Artsakh (the Artsakh streetview has since been removed, however). I don't want to take the sides of either Armenia nor Azerbaijan, for both countries have a kind and generous people, many of whom whom have been wronged by the other side and turned into refugees. Both sides have committed massacres in recent history and both sides have destroyed priceless cultural heritage. Therefore, I hope for only peace and nothing more without favouring any particular side.
