If it gets featured you can make a copy of the quiz and download it under SVG options. More incentive to nominate, I guess!

I threw out all the cities I knew in the areas that were yellow and managed to get some like Baghdad, Tbilisi, and even Kano! Guessing countries got me some like Tu'i Tonga, Pala Empire (from Palau), and Yenisei Kyrgyz, though it would have done me well to try France and Serbia... Using other knowledge I got Abkhazia and I remember reading about Arles a while back.

It can be argued that the borders may have looked different like with many other nations here, but no, I don't think they're necessarily placed incorrectly.
