It's an interesting idea, but it needs more clarity as to what the dates actually mean. For example, China is listed as being thousands of years old, despite political and territorial shifts. In fact, Qin China in the year 221 BC only controlled a portion of the territory of modern China. Meanwhile, Turkey is listed as the date of the establishment of the Republic of Turkey, although it didn't really become independent from anyone, as it was a major power before, it rather lost territory and changed the political system.

It's hard to say what "independence of Taiwan" really means. When the regime was founded in 1911 it was usually regarded as "China" under the name "Republic of China". Even after ROC lost its control over mainland China in 1949, it still represents "China" in UN until 1971 when PRC took the place. In this quiz, independence of Taiwan actually refers to independence of ROC. However, dramatically taiwan island was under Japanese control from 1895 to 1945, which means taiwan island became ROC territory in 1945 for the first time. 1911, 1945, 1949, 1971, which one makes sense?
