great quiz, but there are some errors:

1. Palestine is recognized by the UN, it's an observer state

2. If theres any British Territory that definetly doesnt want independence, its the Falklands. In the last referendum over 90% of people voted to stay with the UK

3. I don't think there is a real independence movement in French Guiana

4. Niue and the Cook Islands dont really claim full sovereignty, they are mostly independent and new zealand recognizes that; they dont get a seat at the UN because their people use New Zealand citizenship. If they got an own citizenship for them, they would get a seat at the UN and New Zealand would recognize that

5. Kaliningrad doesn't really have an independence movement either, the people are only striving for more autonomy

I knew about Palestine and forgot about Falklands at the time of making but what are some de-facto countries I could replace them with?

West Papua wants independence from Indonesia. Also New Caledonia voted to stay part of France in a referendum a few years back. Nice quiz though!

I will add though that West Papua don't claim independence as the quiz title would suggest if you add it, they just want independance (so much so that they are willing to fight for it).
