No but their shapes (and Armenia's) are squares in the original world map svg file since they are landlocked anyway.

Really cool idea! Just too bad it shows the answers when you mouse over the map :/ If it would show the countries it would be better (since they are listed below anyway, so it would not be cheating, since the countries names are allready provided, but it does save scrolling up and down).
