So QIn Shi Huangdi's Tomb is in Afghanistan now, I'm sure that he feels way more insecure, and might commission another terracotta army! Great Quiz, this one should be featured!

I really liked the quiz, but Afghanistan's flag makes it unclear since the map just shows white on that region. It would be better if you zoomed out on Afghanistan's flag so we can see the writing on the flag or replace it with the flag of another country with a similar population.

great quiz! would be nice to add the province's population in the table, just to know (I bet few of us can tell which is exactly the population of Niger), maybe after the answer has been guessed.

anyway, nominated

Interesting quiz! Really puts things into perspective.

One suggestion though is to add the population numbers in an additional column to provide further context on just how (un)populated these provinces are.

This quiz really gives you a different perspective on the massive population of China when you see some major populous countries like Thailand, Egypt, Germany, Ethiopia, France and Vietnam just casually fitting into some of their provinces. Now we need the same quiz for India!
