Azerbaijan was in European USSR prior to it's break up in 1991. It has not moved and therefore is in Europe along with the Baltic states, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Georgia and Armenia (and Russia of course).

You didn't even look at my link, did you?

If the only reason you think Azerbaijan is in Europe is because it was part of the USSR before, then you will be misled due to outdated information. The current boundary has changed since then and is now along the Northern border of Azerbaijan, which means the country is in Asia. Here's another image to help clarify [LINK]. Azerbaijan is the dark blue intercontinental state, but clearly shown to be in Asia. Here's another article [LINK]. If you still don't trust Wikipedia, here's the CIA website for you. [LINK].

If you want to convince me or anyone else that Azerbaijan is in Europe, you have to do a better job than "It was in the USSR before".

"Southwestern Asia, bordering the Caspian Sea, between Iran and Russia, with a small European portion north of the Caucasus range" It can be classified in either. Just as Russia for the longest time was/is considered in both Europe and Asia. Considering the 'continents' aren't a governed body, and are open to interpretation from any outside source, it's all on the person looking into it, as there is no 'right' or 'wrong' on the geographical location in continents, in some cases. In this case, Azerbaijan has been accepted to be both European and Asian, as the quote from the CIA website shows. All in all, it's a complicated issue, and shouldn't be a problem. You either knew it or you didn't, the continent they listed it under didn't make a difference.

I'll concede the point of them being the same landmass, but the acknowledged and conventional 'border' dividing it into 2 continents is a convenient way to divide up the countries. Arguing about it is asinine, especially since jetpunk as a whole consistently groups countries by the convention CtG526 referenced above.

Maybe asinine is a strong word, but these kind of separations are somewhat culturally constructed... the models that shape how we think of continents and other regional separations are different across the globe, and these inconsistencies are shining through in this discussion. The fact that people think these things are so set in stone is problematic. Anyhow... Where are the peeps from Azerbaijan to settle this score??

The border might be conventional, that doesn't mean it is "acknowledged." Acknowledged by who? You can look at different maps and see different countries included in Europe depending on the map. It's not quite as fuzzy as "the Middle East," but it's not as definite as you claim, plats. I mean check this out, which clearly indicates it's a complete f'ing mess and even then, if you go by the "most common" most recently used convention, take a look, the border passes right through Azerbaijan making it both European and Asian. Georgia's in the same boat.

I apologize for not making my meaning clearer--I did not mean to state that the actual situation of countries and cultural discrepancies of continental definitions was not complex, but merely that the convention used in this context, although arguably arbitrary, is not ambiguous. 'Acknowledged' in my comment simply meant acknowledged by the convention of JetPunk.

I kinda feel that this entire argument stems from the fact that by any sensible definition Asia and Europe are not distinct continents, but parts of a single super-continent. If we must divide them, then I would say the balance of sources place it in Asia. And if we consider the Caucasus to be the Europe-Asia divide (as overwhelmingly is the case), then Azerbaijan, lies distinctly to the south of the spine of that mountain range, meaning it is in Asia. But again, it's all fairly arbitrary anyway - only ancient and outdated custom divides Europe from Asia, they are not in any physical sense separate continents.

politically, it is in both. According to the National Geographic Atlas I have, there is a commonly accepted division between Asia and Europe and according to the boundary, small portions of Georgia, Kazakhstan, and Azerbaijan are in Europe based on the political boundary. Azerbaijan's capital, Baku, is in Europe according the map but the majority of it is in Asia, so you are partially correct. I would advise CtG526 to add Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan to Europe and keep it in Asia. Also, I finished with 1:52 remaning. :)
