They also aknowladge Kosovo as independant country on Jetpunk and it gained its independance the same way Crimea did with referendum. So I guess they are holding to their rules

Except few people in Russia believe the referendum result

The Jetpunk rules boil down to "which of the 196 recognized countries is de facto in power in that area". That means Quizmaster doesn't (need to) judge the lawfulness of referendum results, whether in Kosovo, Crimea or wherever. Which is sensible for a quiz site.

Not recognized by the majority of the world as part of Russia. Kosovo had an independent referendum that was actually credible. Crimea had a "referendum" at gunpoint.

But it would result to random country-blurting for some otherwise. And see what sticks.. atleast this way it relies on your geography knowledge.

I’m a little surprised that the Mongolians conquered Hainan. It is a lot closer to the mainland than Taiwan or Japan, so that probably helps.

I would have finished it a little quicker, if it had not taken me half a minute or more to guess Poland. Nevertheless, a great quiz and another 5 points!

wow extremely high scores on this one !! all above 80% ! I would have expected atleast some to be below 60. I guess a lot of people just forgot a different country, so that the scores overall remain high,

Why didn't they go further north? I mean, it is a little cold up there, but there should have been practically no defense in that area.

The Mongol Empire was famous for it's vastness and brutality. At it's height in the year 1279, the Empire took up 16% of all the land on Earth and was home to about 1 in every 4 humans on the planet.
