I was stumped by the Celtic Nations, until I realised that I'd already typed in Scotland and Wales, and that these are not nations by the usual Jetpunk rules. So I was able to get them all in the end. What they are are distinct regions which have (or had - Cornish and Manx are dead) a distinct Celtic language.

Nov 21, 2014
They are nations and members of the Celtic League; they are not independent countries. They're tied by having Celtic languages and cultures (Breton is closer to Welsh than it is to French).

Breton and Welsh are very similar and so is Cornish; I am Welsh and can read and understand Breton and Cornish.

Dictionary.com defines nation as, "a large aggregate of people united by common descent, history, culture, or language, inhabiting a particular country or territory." Native American tribes in America are called nations, but they are not sovereign countries.

The quiz is correct. The Northern Territory is not a state of Australia. It is a territory (hence the name). It's Administration has certain powers but they fall well short of the law-making powers enjoyed by the states. From Wikipedia: "Under the Australian Constitution, the Commonwealth has full legislative power, if it chooses to exercise it, over the Northern Territory, and has devolved self-government to the Territory. The Northern Territory legislature does not have the legislative independence of the Australian states but has power in all matters not in conflict with the Constitution and applicable Commonwealth laws, but subject to a Commonwealth veto."

level ∞
Jan 6, 2019
It's never been accepted nor will it ever be. Here's what Wikipedia says: "The name Blue River began to be applied in the 18th century .... Very common in 18th- and 19th-century sources, the name fell out of favor due to growing awareness of its lack of any connection to the river's Chinese names and to the irony of its application to such a muddy waterway."
