Actually, Prussia as an administrative entity was dissolved in 1947, but it hadn't been an independent country for decades.

We might not be sovereign countries any more (not for a while longer, perhaps) but I'd say Scotland and Wales still "exist" more than most of the others here.

They don't exist as independent any more. The Keltic nations were independent before those dates (as far as I know).

With the "Germany and Poland" hint, I only thought of Danzig Free State which would be a viable answer for 1945. Prussia is not, unless the date is changed as explained by others before. How about Manchuria, Tannu Tuva, Roman Empire? :)

They did, but the were the last remaining states from Yugoslavia really. Slovenia and Croatia declared independance in 1991, Macedonia and Bosnia-Herzegovina followed within a year, and that left "Yugoslavia" as just two current nations, who changed their name from Yugoslavia to "Serbia and Montenegro". Montenegro then declared independance from Serbia in 2006. So yeah guess you're right in one way, but it probably comes under Yugoslavia.

K so on Tanganyika, i feel like that shouldn't count bc it was tanganyika and zanzibar, then they merged to make tanzania. Also on the Sikkim, Corsica, and the Catalonia questions, there could be more than one answer. India has merged and gone through several empires throughout history. Spain was once Castille and Aragon. France also had countries like Brittany, Normandy, Bourbon, and Savoy which all were separate from France at different times. Just sayin:/

I don't know if it's me being pedantic, because we all know the answer, but the clue : "Split into 15 Asian states", I'd believe you should omit the word Asian, or add European because of course, out of the 15 6 are definitely european, with one more being european in my eyes but I know it sparks debate on jetpunk so I won't! Other than that great quiz, this.

East Germany did not merge with Germany, it merged with West Germany to form Germany, same thing with South Vietnam merging with North Vietnam not Vietnam and neither Tanganyika or Zanzibar merged with Tanzania, once again, this was formed from the merger. Also, the USSR did NOT split into 15 Asian states, since when were Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Ukraine, Belarus or Moldova Asian (also Russia, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Armenia are considered European).

Tanganyika didn't work for me... Also, Hawaii threw me off big-time. It didn't become an actual US State until 1959, which looks to be what counts as "merging with US" on any other state answers.

Some of these did not "merge" with nations. Quite a few of them were forcibly annexed.

I doubt that Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, Moldova, and Ukraine see themselves as 'Asian states',and a significant part of Russia is considered to be part of Europe.
