I think the demise of colonialism should be celebrated. We still have neocolonialism, and that's bad enough, so let's not mourn for traditional colonialism.

I think this quiz would be better if the answers arent allready shown. It is basically name the countries I am showing you. (still kind of educational to know which countries were occupied, but for the purposes of doing a quiz... I rather not have the answers given to me beforehand).

It is better if the map was blank at the start, not showing the answers.

The answers reflect that, everything is 100% besides singapore ( which you can't really see), eventhough the time is not superlong.

The Kuril Islands was part of Japan back then, now they are part of Russia, though.

The northern part of Sakhalin was also not part of Japan in the WWII period.

Fun fact: Japan can't declare war anymore as per the 1947 amendment of the Meiji Constitution

Although I suppose the United States may as well rescind that constraint, Japan is one of the US's closest allies today

Good quiz! But a few map nitpicks:

Japan did not own some of the parts shown in Indochina and Malaysia, as parts were annexed by Thailand https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saharat_Thai_Doem#/media/File:Saharat_Thai_Doem_map.png https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Sirat_Malai_and_Malaya.png

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franco-Thai_War#/media/File:Provinces_of_Cambodia_loss_to_Thailand_during_Franco-Thai_War.png

Also, Mongolia might be a fair inclusion, as their borders changed a lot since independence, and Japan controlled some of the lands that are now in Mongolia (See this video by Yan Xishan: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6Xd44YXWP8&t=267s
