Nope, that elusive last one was Vatican. Apologies to the 800-odd people I dishonoured...
Aside: it's so weird now the EU to many people here is synonymous with Europe. It seems to me like the issue many people try to make with the USA being referred to as "America," except in this case it's actually a legitimate slight. Because while nobody is confused when you call the United States "America," referring to the EU as "Europe" to the exclusion of all non-EU countries (and sometimes, confusingly, to the exclusion of non-Schengen countries in the EU) is very confusing!
is a Union of EUROPEAN States. By that measure, I believe
that it is wise for England to withdraw from the Union because
the UK is as much a part of Europe as Cyprus is.
Aesthus: -1. Your current total is -5,467 if you're keeping score.
I suck at geography even though I'm 11.
Cyprus is closer to Asia than Europe; thus it makes sense for it to be included as part of Asia. Brits, in particular, have been referring to 'the Continent' (the European mainland) for centuries, which would be rather odd if they could just call it Europe, not being part of it as you claim. Greenland is, indeed, close to Canada...vast uninhabited swaths of Canadian islands and northern land. Meanwhile, it is also not too far from Europe, is part of Denmark, and has been considered part of Europe for hundreds of years. Malta and Ireland have similar reasons to be part of Europe - both are just a few hundred miles at most from the mainland and much further away from other continents. And Iceland is (under the definition that the northern reaches and distant islands of Canada shouldn't really count under the circumstances) much closer to Europe.
yes im bragging
it took 6 Months to get Below 3:40!
I can die peacefully now
Also 45 with 3:40 remaining. Fun quiz!
i think the quiz time should be reduced to make it more of a challenge
Why not accepting also the annexation of Austria, Sudetenland and Poland by Nazi Germany?
what about georgia?

cuz am pro B)
Türkiye, Georgia, Cyprus, Armenia and Azerbaijan, while being culturally connected to Europe, have most of their areas and populations in Asia. Since this is a quiz about geography, I see why they are not included. However, since the divide between Europe and Asia is political anyway, as they are connected by land, I also see the argument for their inclusion. Personally, I think that the quiz should specify that this is based on the geographical definition of Europe, rather than the political one, if the current answers are to be kept.
