Updated to include every country considered to be "Western Europe". I've also changed some administrative divisions in Belgium and Monaco. Type-ins have been completely redone, I feel that was the biggest issue with this quiz before. Thank you everyone who's left feedback.

A masterpiece, thank you very much!! I suggest colouring luxembourg in a different colour on thebmain map to show it's part of the quiz and allowing local language name as type-in but unless these are recommended type-ins that would take very long

Dec 5, 2016
another suggestion - make the map wider: there's no need for that when you look at Europe but it's useful when you zoom in

Thanks! Will try to make these changes happen. However, unfortunately over 100 regions do not have recommended type ins, so I cannot allow local language varients for all regions.

Is England a second level political division? It doesn't have its own government or council. The UK does have a very complex system but surely the highest level in England would be the nine regions, they are often the ones included when the UK is split into different regions, along with Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Feb 10, 2021
Yes, I agree, England isn't a "thing" at all. Even its legal system is shared with Wales. Unfortunately the alternative is to include all the counties and local authorities, which would make England about a quarter of the whole quiz.

Also, please accept Wallis for Valais since like 50% of the people there speak German and call it Wallis.

Oct 16, 2017
It would be nice, but unfortunately I don't know if i can. For Ireland I couldn't find any maps available that I could use for data, so that was a problem. Also for Malta there was over 60 regions and I didn't want 25% of answers to be of a more obscure country like Malta.

The second-level divisions of the Belgian territory are the regions, so Wallonia, Flanders and Brussels. The provinces are the next level (and you shouldn't accept just "Walloon" and "Flemish" for the Brabants anyway).

Tavastia Proper under Finland is out of alphabetical order, maybe it's supposed to say Kanta-Häme?
+1
Level 70
Oct 20, 2020
It was originally Kanta-Hame as per the Wikipedia article for the regions of Finland. I changed the name, although Tavastia Proper is a bit archaic of a name so I may change it back eventually. Both names should work, however, I did my best to include all sorts of type-ins. And the order has been fixed!

Great quiz, had a lot of fun doing it!

I believe there is a small inconsistency tho in including the Canary Islands but not Ceuta and Melilla. Either the former shouldn't be there (as it is a part of Africa, geographically) or the latter should. Thanks a lot for your effort, though, it was a nice one ;)

+1
Level 70
Nov 15, 2021
Thank you! If I were to make this quiz today, I would remove the Canary Islands. However I do think they have more of an ambiguous status since they are islands in the middle of the Atlantic, while Ceuta and Melilla are physically on the African mainland. Glad you enjoyed the quiz :)

Greece is counted in Western Europe??
+2
Level 70
Mar 31, 2022
Traditionally, yes (especially during the Cold War). Today the idea of Western and Eastern Europe is less defined, and I would argue that concepts such as Central Europe are more important. Before the Cold War, Greece may have been seen as more 'Eastern' throughout times in history (such as being in the Byzantine Empire, following Orthodox Christianity during the schism and being part of the Ottoman Empire). Other Cold War definitions have survived, such as the idea of First/Second/Third World. It is outdated, and I'm all for doing away with the concept, but for the purposes of a quiz like this I think it's alright.

Hope this is a good reply/reasoning!
