Love this, thanks. The distinction between HRE and non-HRE can be kinda blurry though, and I wouldn't count it as one country anyway. And Paradox might have missed a few other minor countries. But nevertheless, I'm happy this quiz exists.

Haven't played EU4, just lots of EU3, and the only countries from EU3 that I missed were Moldavia (all I could think of was Bessarabia), the Livonian Order (which isn't present at the start of EU3 in 1399, and Naxos (I didn't see it). This is great work.

The city of Genoa was part of the HRE (but not its colonies) so I think the dot is not necessary.

I have a hard time knowing what to do with quizzes like this. On one hand, it's an absolute masterpiece of quiz creation. On the other hand, this is really obscure stuff for 99% of the population. But the people have spoken - and now its featured!

level 65
Nov 19, 2019
Yes, that's understandable. I think my thoughts are that no matter how obscure it may be, there'll always be some group of people who will absolutely love it. And, with this being geography, that group is unlikely to small!

Great work, I'm glad it's featured! It's not hard to get 4 points with just a slightly better glimpse of medieval history of Europe. 5 points - yeah, that's tough. There are so many NBA / NFL quizzes that are 100% obscure to me ;)

Nov 21, 2019
But that makes it even better. What quiz, of any kind, would not be improved by having one of the answers as "Despotate of Morea, semi autonomous appanage of the Byzantine Empire."? The type ins might be tricky though.

Quite frankly, I don't think that the Holy Roman Empire should be considered a nation, even if Paradox considers it to be so. It does make guessing the Germany area easier, but the Holy Roman Empire was just a union of hundreds of tiny German states united under a single emperor- not a country. I don't know, I just feel this way. It's just getting under my skin, especially since I enjoy seeing the border gore that the German states provide.

Also it was kindof a country at that time. The HRE was just an empire where feodalism was still very strong and local nobles had a lot of autonomy. In practice they all acted like independent states and only answered to the emperor in name. But in 1444 we are just leaving the middle ages and it was how things worked. Even regions in France and England still had a lot of autonomy back then. The royal power would eventually become stronger here and the HRE would eventually dissolve because the emperor's power would become weaker and weaker. But I'm not sure that outcome was set in stone back in 1444.
+1

It was not set in stone at all, Austria or more correctly, the Habsburgs had a firm grip over the empire for a long time. Only after the religious wars and the rise of Prussia they became less powerful.
