Thailand was invaded by Japan in 1941, and of course the Bridge over the River Kwai, where Japan constructed a railway to Myanmar using POW forced labour, is in Thailand.

Invasion, five (5) hours of fighting, ceasefire, a few days that could be called occupation I guess, after that alliance that allowed Japan to operate in Thailand and build railways among other things, but wasn't formally an occupation. Dunno, I'd still put it on the not-occupied list.

They were only "allowed entry" because they were invaded. It was a de facto occupation at the end of a gun barrel

Jerry my man, Thailand wasn't occupied. While Japanese troops marched through Thailand and Myanmar to get to Malaysia, occupy is way too strict of a term to use to describe their action.

They were invaded, and capitulated. How is that not occupation? How is that different from, say, Holland?

I would have thrown India in as a possible answer for the Buddha birth question (instead of, say Vietnam). It might have gotten a lot of votes.

It also would have been terribly confusing, because the area was in India then, but is in Nepal now.

I think technically Oman is a sultanate, not a monarchy (which would have a king).

I think sultans are classed as monarchs, just not as kings.

I don't think question 8 should be phrased "Which country has the larger population?" It should be "Which country has the largEST population?".
