Good quiz! But I think some of the path strokes are a bit different. For example for Sri Lanka, the stroke is a bit too large / thick compared to the others, just a small thing.

Excellent quiz, but I can't help but feel like the list should be longer. Weren't the island of Tobago and Dutch Angola colonies as well?

The Netherlands once had small parts of Germany under control after WW2.
