Ironically, other countries' recognition (or not) of Palestine has much less to do with complex or objective and consistent criteria than it has to do with politics and their "feelings," which lead to them ignoring any facts on the ground, and this can be easily demonstrated, as well.
Not everyone is Brazil to see anything but World Cup victory as a failure.
... Oh to have an original idea and a featured quiz!
Funny enough, we used to have a lot of similar comments about Scotland. SCOTLAND IS INDEPENDENT. But then Scotland had a vote on whether to become independent and decided not to. Which gave us a brief moratorium on such nonsense.
One day, Palestine actually will be independent. I look forward to that day. But it is not the case currently.
England represents England, not the UK. And Denmark represents Denmark, not the Kingdom of Denmark.
The Netherlands should also be included in this quiz, you're right.
Just as each constituent country of the UK are included in this quiz due to their independent FA's and FIFA memberships, so should the constituent countries of Netherlands/Denmark.
I think it would at least add an extra element of excitement to an already great quiz.
You could pin a comment at the top explaining the rationale?
