A little bit of explanation regarding some of these countries since the original comment got deleted:

Most European territories: The first iteration of a (short-lived) Belgian state occured in 1790, when the Brabant Revolution ousted the Austrians until the end of the year. This explains the strange enclaves.

China: Concession in Tianjin.

Guatemala: Santo Tomas de Castilla was the first attempt at a Belgian colony. It existed from 1843 to 1854.

Italy: Isola Comacina was granted to Belgium in homage to the king in 1919. This territory was returned to Italy the following year.

Central African Republic: The sultanates of Zemio and Rafai were under Belgian protectorate just before the territory was seized by France.

Uganda/South Sudan: The Lado Enclave. Ceded to the UK in 1910.

Four features means that you have more featured quizzes than me now, congrats! Iā€™m counting just featured quizzes in English, because featured quizzes in any other language are so worthless.

Clearly Quizmaster fell asleep and was taken over by one of those aliens in those over-sized pea pods. No other rational explanation for how this quiz got featured. (and a very excellent quiz, I might add)

How about the Tangier international zone? It held that for a couple terms IIRC.

It was an international zone, which as stated by the caveat means it doesn't meet the criteria for inclusion here.

You shouldn't generalize like that by saying "the evil Belgians" because not all Belgians were that way. Afterall it was the Belgian government who took away Leopold's territory in the Congo because of the atrocities he was committing there.

Wasn't me who put that there considering I have no control over what is written on the front page. Either way, it's a running joke that is completely unrelated to Leopold II's atrocities (e.g. see Quizmaster's comment above).

I like the imperialistic scale! In reality, Belgium could neatly fit into the western part of DRC's panhandle...
