Could Ukraine also count as having had a colony in the Americas? Because they were under the Russian Empire at the same time that the Russian Empire held Alaska

It is an interesting consideration, but since the Russian Empire was based in Moscow/St Petersburg rather than Ukraine, I decided not to count it. For clarity I might replace that question when I edit the quiz next.

Alright, so I would have gotten the question wrong either way because I didn’t know Zelensky was Jewish, but I figured the head of state for the UK was Sunak who also is not a Christian. Maybe I’m just completely wrong about this, but could it possibly be clarified that you mean King Charles?

Sunak is the UK's head of government, with the head of state being King Charles.

I will clarify though, thanks for the feedback.
