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.

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).

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.

Well argued, PjotrL. You make me wonder how "jetpunk" reached that decision? Is jetpunk indeed a democracy or is it a dictatorship? What would it take to encourage it to recognise Palestine as a nation?
