I know that Lhasa is nominally a part of China due to the Chinese invasion and genocide of the Tibetan people, but perhaps we could use a different clue?

Wow, that's so brainwashed. My Tibetan (yes, Tibetan, not Han) friends beg to differ, but hey, they only live there :D

My partner (who is Han) says that the general reasoning behind China hanging on to Tibet is that allowing the region autonomy would result in a theocratic country, ruled by the Dalai Lama. So, it seems it's not so much the greed of wanting more land and control as it is the national Chinese opposition to organized religion, especially in the form of a policy-dictating theocracy.

Well, the PRC has interesting ways of justifying lots of things. Uighur nationalism (or just about any expression of Uighur identity) is now defined as terrorism. I'll grant that in '49 and '50, more things were done for predominantly ideological reasons, but the Chinese government is pretty damned interested in geopolitics, including access to resources and trade routes - and to the stifling of dissent, particularly among ethnic minorities who might be able to challenge a public management style that comes pretty close to a form of political theocracy - if such a term makes sense.

Nice quiz. I'm sure you didn't mean this, but having Lhasa here is a bit dismissive to the Tibetan people. Just saying, no need to remove it

What? Tibet may want freedom, but it is by no means a sovereign country. You don't think "Spain by Picture" needs to drop all pictures of Catalonia, do you?

As a Chinese person, when on Earth will you accept "changjiang" for "yangtze," as that is actually what we call it here? I've brought this up in several places.

It's an English-language quiz, so probably not in the near future, maybe never. Feel free to make a Chinese-language quiz on that topic!

This reply is both rude and dismissive. Yes, it is an English language quiz and Chiangjiang is an alternative English answer. Just google it.

For the last question, perhaps using "mythical creature" would be more accurate than "animal" to refer to a dragon.

I could be mistaken, but as far as I knew China was mostly secular. Buddhism could identify more with India (its hearth) or Japan (there are more Buddhists there than in China).
