Nice quiz:) Would've thought Podgorica would be closer than Manama, which is what threw me off in the end.

I always get hung up on the map I can't interpret and it totally undermines my ability to get more than a half dozen on these. Oh well...just have to memorize them for next time...

Please remove Pristina as Kosovo is not an independent country. Or if you want to be consistent, add Ar-Rakka (capital of ISIS - another terrorist state)

108 countries do not agree with you. Kosovo is a democracy that has free and fair elections. The idea of equating Kosovo with ISIL (international recognition zero) is absurd.

A terrorist state? Geez, give us a break. btw Pristina is a beautiful place. So is Tirana. Much nicer people than in Belgrade or Nis or Prokjulpe where corrupt policemen and judges conspired to steal my car. Kosovo hasn't yet committed any acts of genocide so they've got that going for them, too.

Incidentally I do think Islamic State HAD a reasonable claim to sovereignty (and that it was also unfair to label them a terrorist state when they did)... but that claim has somewhat deteriorated since Raqqa has been overtaken by the SDF as of a couple weeks ago.

And why isn't Tel Aviv on this list ?

Tel Aviv ceased to be the capital in 1949 when the capital was moved to Jerusalem in 1949. Most embassies remained in Tel Aviv due to disputes as to Jerusalem's status (which was then partitioned between Israel and Jordan). The remaining embassies in Jerusalem all moved to Tel Aviv around 1980, in response to Israel claiming to annex East Jerusalem as well in that year.

So why Trump alone decided to make Jérusalem the capital of Israel just recently if it is since 1949 ?? And why everything is denied by UNO if it is effictive for decades ?

Trump didn't decide to make Jerusalem the capital of Israel, only Israel can make such a decision as it's their country and their capital. Trump decided to move the US embassy to Jerusalem, and he did that because he's an enormous moron who doesn't understand the implications of what he does for diplomacy, foreign policy, security or our economy and only acts on impulse doing things to service his own ego, including sometimes throwing red meat to his ignorant base.
