We just need Switzerland to join so that we can complete the encirclement of Austria.

Well, Suriname better not invade French Guiana, or else the Albanian infantry will arrive!

The UK has bases in Akrotiri and Dhekelia, and Northern Cyprus has been occupied by Turkey (although it claims to be independent) since the invasion in 1974. Neither territory is considered by its parent country to be an integral part of the country, though, so they shouldn't count for this quiz. French Guiana is considered an overseas department--not a territory--of France, so it is just as "French", legally speaking, as Brittany.

Why should overseas territories count for France and Spain but not the UK? It's not leased from Cyprus, it's British land.
+16
Level ∞
Jan 12, 2023
Because French Guiana is not an overseas territory it is an overseas region, with full integration into the French state.

Confused? It's similar to the difference between Puerto Rico (a territory) and Hawaii (a state).

As everyone knows, Cyprus is part of the British Isles.

Which for most quizzes makes perfect sense so I understand why it's extended to this quiz. But in the particular case of a quiz about a military alliance, it's odd to include French Guyana which isn't protected by NATO, but ignore British holdings in Cyprus which almost certainly are.

Yeah I tried Cyprus as well (2 british military bases on the island)

Well. If you think about it, Russia would've never attacked Ukraine if Ukraine was part of NATO.
+1
Level 73
Jan 24, 2023
However, part of Putin’s reasoning for invading was because of Ukraine’s intention to join NATO.

Level 67
Jan 24, 2023
He's a liar and a manipulator. He'd come up with a different lie to invade Ukraine if NATO didn't exist.

Level 73
Jan 24, 2023
I certainly won’t deny that. I have no love for that man and absolutely stand with the Ukrainian people. I just try my best to look at things from multiple perspectives in most cases too. NATO certainly is not a perfect solution either.

Military bases do not count (to all people above, that is why Akrotiri and Dhekelia do not count).

Not yet. And being Finnish myself, I hate the idea that my country is apparently soon joining.

It is never an unanimous decision, but the majority of people in Finland is backing it up.

The moment that you are so focused on Europe and get all answers correctly (even Brazil and Suriname) but forget Mexico...

Level 56
Jan 24, 2023
Alright, I missed Ireland but I love how I missed Suriname, Brazil, and Morocco. Especially Morocco. It's so funny how French Guiana is an actual department instead of an overseas territory so you end up forgetting about it on so many quizzes. I thought Mexico was the only country in America that bordered a NATO country. Fun quiz.
