Amazing how you keep doing this with such dedication. Whenever you release you modern day countries quizzes, I'm always like, he's run out of empires, and then lo, you make one more.

Just one small problem I observed with the map, for whatever reason, when I zoom in, the paths disappear

Awesome quiz! Unfortunately zooming in doesn’t work. The black line for the bottom left section as well as the colony names in the bottom left show up, but besides that it’s all blue. I think it’s a mobile problem

Weren't Brazil and Maranhao different states within the Portuguese empire at this point? I also think it might be a good idea to accept Hudson's Bay Company for Rupert's Land, as it was the company that was administering the territory. Great quiz though!

Thanks! Maranhao had actually already merged with Brazil by 1775. I'll accept "Hudson's" and "HBC" for Rupert's Land though.

New Brunswick should not be separated from Nova Scotia. New Brunswick was part of Nova Scotia until 1784, when the colonies were split following the migration of loyalists into the region.
