Bhutan was a shocker. I thought about it, but rejected it straight away when i read 'minimum elevation' under 100m. - considering almost the entire country lies in the Himalayas.

Got to admit, that one may have been a little cruel from me :P

Most of the country is indeed very very high, but at the very south, the Manas River allows Bhutan to dip down to just below 100m.

I suppose many people will learn from this that Bhutan isn't entirely in the Himalayas! Before making this I also assumed Bhutan was above 1000m or something.

That's fascinating- it's like whoever made the borders said "just draw it right around the base of the mountains-- except for those 3 towns, give them those 10 sq miles just for fun."

It's particularly hard when your eyes read "maximum."

Great quiz, love the series! for the last category, in the 4th box I think maybe Russia should be accepted, I could be wrong but I think it fits all the criteria. It has blue on the national flag, a land area over 100,000km squared and a population above 50 million, I guess maybe it counts as being in Europe instead of Asia though.

It's a marginal case, but generally on JetPunk we consider Russia to be primarily in Europe (since most of the population of the Capital lies there).

I agree completely. I guessed it for the second clue, then realized it meant completely in Asia
