North Korea isn't communist?
Level 43
Jun 19, 2014
North Korea's government started as communist (they were backed by Communist China and the USSR) but currently their government is adhered to a philosophy called "Juche", which was created by Kim Il-Sung. Similarly, China isn't really "communist" anymore (it's an authoritarian dictatorship, with the cult attached instead to the party rather than the "President"/Emperor), but they still officially call themselves communist, despite the contradiction.

If North Korea isn't included because of the Juche ideology, then neither should the others, since they're all technically socialist. Vietnam's official name is even "The Socialist Republic of Vietnam".

North Korea is as communist as anyone is these days, regardless of what they call it. (Certainly, reforms in China and Vietnam--and probably Cuba--make them less "communist" than a communist country c. 1960.)

Nice quiz. One suggestion: if you're going to accept abbreviated names for some (St Vincent), it'd be helpful to be consistent and accept them for all (St Kitts).

Got 44 and Banglade...and time was up. Irritating!

I think Antigua should be accepted for "Antigua and Barbuda" as well as Trinidad for "Trinidad and Tobago" It's accepted that way in all other geography quizzes with those answer. Otherwise very good!

Loved this quiz. I was stumped on the Ending in a -H. I was literally circling the globe unable to think of it!

The Belavezha Accords (Russian: Беловежские соглашения, Belarusian: Белавежскія пагадненні, Ukrainian: Біловезькі угоди) is the agreement that declared the Soviet Union effectively dissolved and established the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) in its place. It was signed by the leaders of three of the four republics-signatories of the Treaty on the Creation of the USSR -- Russian President Boris Yeltsin, Ukrainian president Leonid Kravchuk and Belarusian parliament chairman Stanislau Shushkevich. That means that Russia ALSO gained independence from USSR.

Monaco is a country fully in another one : France
Level 68
Apr 10, 2015
Monaco is not an enclave like Lesotho, San Marino, or Vatican City because it borders the sea. If you were to count Monaco as country inside another country because it borders only one other country, you would also have to add Canada, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Denmark, Portugal, Gambia, UK, Ireland, South Korea, Brunei, East Timor, and Papua New Guinea to this list.

Can never spell all the 'stan' countries.

Great Quiz! Should make a ton of these, and I got all of them first try!

#3 is misleading. Vatican and San Marino are in Italy, but Lesotho is in Africa. If you were going to go that route, then you should also have added Gambia.

How is it misleading if one answer happens to be on a different continent?

And Gambia isn't landlocked - not by much admittedly, but it definitely has a coastline.

Maybe ease up on the spelling of the 'stans'
