I agree with Thomas: the Home Nations is mostly a sporting term (e.g. Six Nations, Home Nations Championship).

Pretty easy for this crowd. I think I would rate this as "average" difficulty for a normal person.

I almost didn't get the Istanbul one, since I was desperately trying to think of a megacity on the Urals or Caucuses. Because of the Bosphorus, Asia and Europe do not share a border near Istanbul.

Finland is not a part of Scandinavia I don't think. Also I got rly confused on the "wholly" thing and i had to google what that meant, you could've used fully instead.
