It still needs some adjustments like alphabetical order correction and revision on some territories, but it's a great quiz anyway. I've just nominated it!

Saba, Bonaire and St Eustatius are fully integrated in the Netherlands. So are Madeira and Azores to Portugal and Aland to Finland. And if you gonna include Melilla and Ceuta of Spain then all of the autonomous regions of Spain should be included as answers.

This quiz needs editing.

I'm sure there are good reasons, but I'm curious why Tibet, Kashmir and Kurdistan aren't listed, all of which came to mind.
