He's the longest reigning monarch of all time. Well, out of the ones that we know of at least, but it's unlikely that any ancient kings could have survived so long AND be given the crown at such a young age.

the 2nd point is not true. many ancient civilisations honoured monarchy so much they'd crown child kings if they parents died

Hence the emphasis on "and", meaning it's unlikely that both things happened in conjunction, not just one.

No idea how I remembered King Sobhuza's reign, was surprised to get it immediately. Took me a few guesses to get the Zumba answer. Good quiz.

I thought they were going for Tibet or Mongolia or something. Or perhaps North Korea. I always forget that Taiwan is recognized on Jetpunk quizzes.

Yes, I would like to be able to answer "Tibet" to this question, though I know what the response would be. Basically "Might is Right".

Tibet effectively hasn't been a country for some time now.

Apparently King Sobhuza had about 180 children that lived past infancy, and estimates are that he had over 1,000 grandchildren. That's nearly 0.1% of the population of Swaziland.

I've heard it was a lot bigger percentage. Of course, 0.5% sounds more realistic.

It's a much bigger percentage of men in Asia. Maybe that's what you read?

I don't know why this website recognises Taiwan as an actually country. It CLEARLY belongs to China, according to 189 countries and the UN. China doesn't think, they know Taiwan is theirs! Suggest correction

I prefer to stay politically neutral, but I would just like to point out that only 12 out of 193 United Nations Member States recognise Taiwan (also known as the Republic of China, ROC) as a country, with most of these 12 countries being small islands. I loved Taiwan and it is a beautiful place with very friendly people but saying "China thinks this country belongs to them" is a bit of a misleading statement if only 12 countries recognise Taiwan as a country.

Palestine on the other hand is recognised by 139 out of 193 United Nations Member States but is not recognised as a country on JetPunk.

Would it not be better to settle with a definition such as being a United Nations Member State or being recognised by the UN to qualify as a recognised country? Otherwise statements just become political and people have different opinions, whether this refers to Taiwan, Palestine, Kosovo, etc.
