I do agree that Scotland, Wales and NI are not under the "English Government". There simply isn't a devolved administration in England and so are ruled directly by the British Government
"In the wake of the genocide there, Francophonie member Rwanda has made recent moves away from France's sphere of influence, has replaced French with English as an official language, and joined the Commonwealth at the 2009 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting."
It might not be intuitive, but their rationale for joining makes a lot of sense.
The chief institutions of the organisation are the Commonwealth Secretariat, which focuses on intergovernmental aspects, and the Commonwealth Foundation, which focuses on non-governmental relations between member states.
Member states have no legal obligations to one another, but are connected through their use of the English language and historical ties. Their stated shared values of democracy, human rights and the rule of law are enshrined in the Commonwealth Charter and promoted by the quadrennial Commonwealth Games.
How do you like my new place Tortuga and Barbados haha.
and Malta too ...
I can visualize a map well enough, cause I think in pictures, but still think this quiz would benefit by a map. Simply because it looks cool to zee the places filled in. (Even if it was an empty map)
So the name of this quiz is 68 years out of date!
btw after my first few answers, Canada was in the 2nd spot, I continued giving answers, not paying attention to what was filled in lower/ out of view. But still saw the top, with a missing answer in first place. Thought am I missing someting obvious? But continued giving answers, then I got Antigua and thought huh, more people guessed Antigua than Canada? I was do confused haha, not much later I scrolled down and saw "ah thats why" felt silly haha.
What sense does that make??!?!?!!
I knew Rwanda and Mozambique were let in under special circumstances. Even Togo I understand, because it was once part of German Gold Coast, which was divided between itself and Ghana, but Gabon? It has no history with the British Empire, nor does it speak English or border any member states
