Great quizz anyway, thanks!
Actually, Austria (or as it's called here, the 'Habsburg Empire') was a part of the Holy Roman Empire. The Austrian Habsburgs were the emperors of the HRE almost continuously from the 1400s to it's dissolvation by Napoleon.
It's a little bit like having the Plantagenets Empire and France on the same map : both are held by french dynasties though they are not the same...
As others have pointed out. If you accept "France" for the "French Empire," "UK" for the "British Empire," "India" for the "Maratha Empire,"
"Russia" for the "Russian Empire," "Spain" for the "Spanish Empire,"
"Austria" for the "Hapsburg Empire," "Austria" for "Austria-Hungary,"
"Denmark" for the "Dutch Empire," "Hungary" for "Hungary and Croatia," and "Poland" for "Polish-Lithuanian Union"...
Then you probably also ought to accept "Russia" for the "Soviet Union," "Turkey" for the "Ottoman Empire," and maybe even "Mexico" for the Aztecs, "Peru" for the Incas, and "Germany" for the HRE. There's little rationale for not doing so, other than you don't accept those type-ins in other places on the site.

Also pretty surprised that the Spanish Empire, with all its land area, only had a slightly high population than the Holy Roman Empire by 1800.
either you should change the title to countries and empires or you could except countries for empires
ex. mexico counts for aztec empire, turkey counts for ottoman empire, ect.
However, I disagree much more with people saying "Rome" should be accepted haha.
On one hand you accept Austria for Habsburg Empire, India for Marathi Empire and Poland for Polish-Lithuanian commonwealth. On the other hand you do not accept Turkey for Ottoman Empire, Germany for Holy Roman and Russia for USSR. Similar logic though.
