Very interesting quiz - thanks a lot!!!
Mar 13, 2013
Interesting quiz. Would be easier with a map.

Took the quiz again. Did better than 98.8% of test takers this time but somehow managed to miss Germany...
Nov 18, 2013
Seems like you always miss Germany...

Rarely. Got it this time.. but now I'm wondering how I managed to guess Upper Aulaqi Sultanate, Wahidi Balhaf, and Toro before... must be some type-ins accepted for those?
Feb 9, 2015
Nah, not really. None for Toro. Wahidi works for both of them, and Aulaqi and Aulaki work for both of them. Not really that common keys. shrug. Maybe you just remembered them from the time before.

Afghanistan was restricted much in its foreign policy, but I think it was still a country both de jure and de facto at the time.

Sri Lanka was known as Ceylon in 1900 and well before that...should be listed under Asia.
May 6, 2014
Ceylon was a British colony at the time.

Many of this socalled countries weren't actually independent at the time, such as the various members of South Arabia protectorate, or many african local small kingdoms that were infeoded to the colons.

You missed Bulgaria. Although it was a principality under the Ottoman Empire, it was still a country with a high level of autonomy at the time.

The Kingdom of Tavolara has never been a real state, it should be removed from the quiz.
Aug 19, 2014
Okay, I removed it..

And what about Tibet? Wasn't it independant before the occupation par China?
Dec 3, 2015
No, it was part of the Qing Dynasty (Chinese Empire) in the year 1900. It sort of became independent after the Qing Dynasty fell, but its international recognition was really sketchy.
Feb 3, 2015
Haha - it's not often you get any 0% (never-guessed-correctly) answers in a quiz, but there are loads here!
Apr 9, 2015
I'm the first to get all correct. XD

Was Canada independent by then? I thought Britain still owned it well into the 20th century. Or have I misunderstood the quiz?
Feb 19, 2016
Canada was a self-governing colony with foreign policy controlled by the UK. I would say Afghanistan should definitely be on the list if Canada is.

Standard question on this website: what constitutes a country? The Maldives was formally a protectorate of the UK beginning in 1887, but no Brits lived on the islands, nor did British interests go further than forestalling potential alliances with European competitors. The Maldives, in fact, might be the oldest existing country with anything like constant boundaries (2,000-2,500 years during which one out of 1,200 islands has changed hands).

I thought Norway-Sweden not Sweden-Norway.... :(

But I found Ha'il !
Sep 4, 2016
So did I. Spent the night there once. Not much to see, really. There's a McDonald's downtown and that's about it.

If you accept Ouaddai, why not Dar Sila?
Mar 13, 2017
Bulgaria was independent by 1880's
Mar 31, 2018
Definately needs a map, even if its just to save trawling through Wikipedia to find where these countries were ;)

Any particular reason why South Africa isn't accepted for South African Republic? I realize it's not the same thing as the Republic of South Africa, but neither is, for example, the People's Republic of China the same thing as the Qin Empire but just "China" is always accepted for both of those.

South Africa worked for me.
