Greece, Bulgaria, Armenia, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Cyprus, Russia, Israel... Turkey gets along so well with all of its neighbors! Not to mention the Kurds and ISIS.

Taking quizzes today from Antalya. It's beautiful here.

Hasn't there been some sort of rivalry between Greece and Bulgaria? Hasn't there been a genocide of Armenian people that Turkey refuses to acknowledge? Hasn't there been some sort of support for the Assad opposing rebels from Turkey? Hasn't there been a feud which state on Cyprus the right one is? Hasn't there been a shutdown of a Russian airplane by the Turkish military?

Greece and Bulgaria, too. Pretty much everyone in the Balkans hates everyone else in the Balkans. And everyone in the Middle East hates most everyone else in the Middle East, too. Turkey is lucky enough to sit between both (and as the Ottomans were largely to blame for the current situation as is in both places).

Also, yes, sarcasm. Look it up.

Great quiz! I thought Saudi Arabia would be on there but after the quiz I checked the map and it is a little further away than I thought.

After finishing this quiz, I was scratching my head over how both Armenia and Azerbaijan could border Turkey, so I ended up finding out all about the autonomous region of Nakhchivan, Azerbaijan. It's separated from the remainder of Azerbaijan by Armenia, much like Alaska is separated from the continental U.S. by Canada. That's yet another useless piece of obscure geography trivia to file away for the ultimate Final Jeopardy destiny that awaits me (in my own mind).

Can we add the USA to the list now since it's been that high-ranking White House officials are on the Turkish government payroll?

Please remove Kosovo as this is not a country, but a terrorists' creation. Or, if you'd like to be consistent, add ISIS

When I visited Kosovo two years ago, I found it to be a pleasant and peaceful country. It is recognized diplomatically by 111 nations (a majority of the world's countries), and is a parliamentary republic, with its most recent elections having been held in 2014.

When I visited Palestine a few years ago, I found it to be a pleasant and peaceful country. It is recognized diplomatically by 136 nations (a majority of the world's countries), and is a parliamentary republic, with its most recent elections having been held in 2006. (An a UN observer state, making it's status similar to Vatican). Palestine would probably make this list, but Jetpunk choses the US recognized states.

I visited Palestine last year and I had the same experience. If you take the one minute sprint version of this quiz you'll find out how far away Palestine is! As a matter of policy, quizzes that get featured on Jetpunk have Palestine removed as an answer, in line with the answers listed in the Countries of the World quiz.
