Belgium was sad alone. Now it's happy, with its friend Netherlands.

More seriously, as some of you wrote on my previous True or False quizzes, I've tried to put more History facts with the Geography informations and fun facts. I hope you think it's better now. But if it's not the case, please tell it to me. I'm always happy to be able to improve the quality of my quizzes.

Great Quiz! Deserves a Feature, unfortunately, it missed the True or False bus.

Just one thing. St. Maarten is misspelled.

Thanks a lot! And making quizzes like it is actually pretty funny, with or without feature.

I’ve checked on the web, and it seems we can say (and we actually say most of the time) Saint Martin in English. Can someone confirm it? What do you use?

321 m is not the average elevation. It is the maximum elevation (excluding Caribbean parts of the Netherlands). Also 'Holland' is an informal name for the country, both in Dutch and English... this makes the question debatable.

Thanks for the elevation! It's fixed now. I don't know what I did...

And it's the interest of the question to be debatable. I'll add official i the question. As it, Holland, which is, as you wrote, an informal name, will be totallt excluse. Thanks for the remark!

My source say that the average elevation in Monaco is around 80 meters. But yes, it's actually pretty strange and funny.
