That is a matter of contention in every quiz that differentiates between Europe and Asia. This website consistently considers it part of Asia, but it causes lots of arguments.

Cyprus, the country, is in Europe, but for some reason, Cyprus, the Jetpunk answer, is in Asia. Who knows what exactly it is - I've only ever been to the country!

It's lovely, by the way! I highly recommend the mosaics and Tombs of the Kings in Paphos, or the beach of Petra Tou Romiou, where Aphrodite was allegedly born. Also, walking through No-Man's-Land in Nicosia, between the Cypriot and the Turkish-occupied sector gives a sort of cold-war feel to those too young to have experienced the real deal.

It is geographically in Asia. Politically, it's very much part of Europe, but we speak georgraphy here. So Asia

Another point of contention - the name change (as well as the change of capital to Naypidaw from Rangoon/Yangon) was at the behest of the ruling military junta, which is not a fluffy hugs and bunnies government. Many people refuse to recognise the change and continue to refer to the country as Burma, though most agree that the de facto capital is indeed Naypidaw.

I'm befuddled by the fact that I got all but one correct (blanked on Bhutan for some reason), but only ended up in the 81st percentile of quiz takers, when so many of the answers have results in the 30 and 40 percent range. That seems mathematically impossible to me.
+1
Level 92
Feb 27, 2014
the more stats link up in the Scoring box might help you out. As of this writing, 18.6% of all quiz takers have scored 100% on this test. A mathematical improbability, perhaps, but not an impossibility (those 18.6 percent make up over half of those who knew Manama). This would seem improbable at first glance, but regular users of this site have probably learned the capitals for/from the world capitals quiz, which requires you to know all 196. After being able to ace that one, this is a walk in the park.

I thought Indonesia would be part of Oceania, especially if Papua New Guinea is.
+1
Level 76
Jun 25, 2017
All of these categorizations are arbitrary, but Oceania might be defined as the area in which Melanesian, Micronesian, and Polynesian people are indigenous. So that would include the entire area usually referred to as Oceania, as well as the eastern portion (vaguely defined, I know) of Indonesia, including the island of Timor - and thus East Timor as well. For the sake of simplicity, perhaps, Indonesia usually gets tossed into the Asia basket. Because there's not a White, Christian "continent" at stake, few people tend to get worked up about this, unlike the angst over the identity of Russia and (especially) Turkey.
+2
Level 69
Jan 28, 2021
No, that can't be it, because if you used indigenous people as a criteria, you'd be forced to recognise that Cyprus, which has been populated by Greeks for two and a half milennia, is in Europe.
+2
Level 63
Aug 30, 2021
Well, most people do recognise Cyprus as part of Europe; it's quite a unique thing to Jetpunk not to. But as for Indonesia, it is simply a bi-continental country, like Russia, Turkey, Egypt, Panama and others. The western islands are most definitely in Asia, Papua is most definitely in Oceania, and exactly where you draw the line around the Moluccas, Timor and Flores is debatable, but either way, Indonesia holds territory on both continents.
+1
Level 67

well Canada is also mostly populated by people of European origin, but that does not make it European.

When you look, which countries are closest to Cyprus, you get a handful of ASIAN countries, than Egypt in AFRICA and then Greece in Europe.....

Has anyone ever counted the number of times that a Jetpunk quiz claims that the cap of Israel is Jersusalem (not Tel Aviv)?

Level 47
Aug 15, 2016
According to the Constitution of Israel, the capital is Jerusalem, but many countries have their embassies/consulate offices in Tel Aviv.
+6
Level 66
Aug 30, 2019
I doubt anyone has counted, but expect that JetPunk "claims" that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel as often as it "claims" that the capital of the USA is Washington, which is to say every time the matter arises, and for the same reason.

Well, if we're going to nitpick, the standard way of writing the capital in the Maldives is Male' - with an apostraphe, rather than an accent. At least some there believe that it signifies an abbreviation. There's no consensus on this though.
