It's not. But some people start up stupid arguments over it. And the only reason it's on this quiz is Quizmaster (the creator of this quiz) is trying to avoid getting swamped with idiotic comments.

Exactly, these "I'll do it like this so people wont complain" arent really thought through. It actually usually generates more complaints. Instead of making both sides happy, you are triggering both sides. Because neither side will agree with the chosen "compromise".

That's the nature of compromise. Something both sides don't agree on, but can live with for the sake of getting along with the people on the other side of your issue.

The only way i can get these quizzes is by visualizing each area in order ... yet I always forget one obvous one - got Peru in the last 2 seconds of this quiz, apologies to those in Peru. I definitely recommend the 'countries quiz' makes these smaller quizzes easier. PS: I want to thank Jetpunk and the quizzmasters so much ... these quizzes are helping so much with a condition I have ... Much Aroha from NZ.

You know, it is jetpunk, if you spend more than a week here you will know palau. Now in the "outside" world, if it was anywhere near 5 % I would be surprised. Even more than 1 % would be surprsing. Here it is just another country like philippines or peru.

Don't stress - Palestine appears in a country in the quizzes I write!

Why? Firstly, because in 1988 they declared that they are a country, followed by most of the world's countries (139 out of 195, or 71%, so far) agreeing that it is a country. Nobody else (not even Israel) has claimed that it is theirs. Also because Palestine was granted UN observer status, like Vatican City has, and Switzerland had until 1992, on a vote of 138 to 9 (the US could veto full membership, but they just had to accept that almost nobody agreed with them because they cannot veto observer status). Also because when I visited there and had a look for myself its nationhood was obvious for several reasons (I'd list them all if there was space!). Anyone who disagrees with this assessment, go there and see for yourself before you parrot the US State Department and their political posture.

Palestine is not a country, dont know why its on the list. Its not recognized by UN, kinda like Taiwan. It was a Roman territory, eventually Ottoman territory, then a British territory. When the Palestinian government declared their statehood in ‘88 they controlled only the Gaza strip and west bank, and thats still all they have. Some countries recognize them but not enough for them to be made an official country. There has never actually been a country called palestine. The name itself was created by the romans to humiliate the israelites they conquered. Maybe one day they will be recognized, but until then its just factually incorrect to put them on a list of real countries. Just because you wish things were different doesnt make it so.
