Nov 22, 2014
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.

But Scotland and wales are countries, they are countries within a constituent country.

Context matters. If we're talking about "nations" without specification, then Brittany and Cornwall probably don't apply; if we're talking about "Celtic Nations", specifically, then they certainly do. Similarly, England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland are not "countries of the world"; they are, however, countries of the United Kingdom.

Brittany and Cornwall are not nations.
+5
Level 69
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).
+2
Level 44

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 ACT even has a little coastal exclave on Jervis Bay. Go there if you can, it's lovely around there.

Ruftytufty, actually Jervis Bay was made its own territory, seperate from the ACT
+1
Level 43
Sep 21, 2019
Jervis Bay is considered it's own territory but it's legally based off ACT. We call it Jervis Bay territory but recognise that it's part of ACT. Laws are per ACT including number plates etc.

Here you go: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celtic_nations

"The term 'nation' is used in its original sense to mean a people who share a common identity and culture and are identified with a traditional territory."

Feb 1, 2018
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."

'W' is pronounced differently from 'V' in English. Wolga doesn't make sense in the context of that language.

Blue has always been accepted as a type-in for Yangtze
+1
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."

Soooo much complaining. Read. And. Learn. If you don't think there is such a thing as a Celtic nation, or the Celtic nations, Google it, and learn about them, rather than complain that they are not really nations. "Oooh, I've never heard of that so it can't possibly be a thing..." Do you realise how stoopid that sounds?

Why are some of the things in alphabetical order, but some not? That definitely tripped me up on some like the great lake cities one. Besides that, great quiz!

Detroit is technically not on a great lake. There are more populous Canadian cities like Hamilton or Missasauga which are however.

Petition to cut all letter questions. It doesn't actually teach anyone anything, nor does it do anything but force you to go through all the capitals of the world in your head, which gets honestly exhausting after you get a few quizzes with them in a row. I mean, exhausting is good if you're actually using your brain to learn something worth remembering, but these letter questions are not that in any way, shape or form. It's not a real category, especially with geography questions where it's probably often a different letter in its native language.

So why isn't the Northern Territory a state? Not enough people?
+1
Level 76
Apr 1, 2021
I did the googling for you. Originally, yes, the Northern Territory had very few people and didn't matter a lot. South Australia controlled it for a time and created a hype around buying land there. That backfailed and they were sued by the buyers for deception. So SA was happy to transfer the Northern Territory to the federal government. In 1998, there was a referendum concerning statehood but voters rejected it. The offer was considered poor and included 3 senators for NT (up from 2), while all other states have 12. As it is, NT already operates like a state in many ways, with a few exceptions (fewer senators, local laws are more prone to be overriden).

Could it be, that Luxembourg is way smaller than Malta?

I checked it with Wikipedia. Luxembourg = 166km2, Malta=316km2.

You should replace that!
