They also aknowladge Kosovo as independant country on Jetpunk and it gained its independance the same way Crimea did with referendum. So I guess they are holding to their rules

The Jetpunk rules boil down to "which of the 196 recognized countries is de facto in power in that area". That means Quizmaster doesn't (need to) judge the lawfulness of referendum results, whether in Kosovo, Crimea or wherever. Which is sensible for a quiz site.

Not recognized by the majority of the world as part of Russia. Kosovo had an independent referendum that was actually credible. Crimea had a "referendum" at gunpoint.

Referendums only really matter in peaceful situations, in the case of Crimea, it's just annexation

But it would result to random country-blurting for some otherwise. And see what sticks.. atleast this way it relies on your geography knowledge.

wow extremely high scores on this one !! all above 80% ! I would have expected atleast some to be below 60. I guess a lot of people just forgot a different country, so that the scores overall remain high,

According to Wikipedia and what I remember, yes. I wonder if the Hungarian territory looked different in the past or if this might actually be an error in the quiz.

Why didn't they go further north? I mean, it is a little cold up there, but there should have been practically no defense in that area.

The Mongols never managed to invade Vietnam, even though they tried 3 times. Tran Hung Dao, the military general who lead the Dai Viet forces in two of these campaigns is still a national hero today. There is even a folk religion based on the mediumship of his spirit. If you are ever in Ho Chi Minh City, go see the enormous statue of Tran Hung Dao in District 1 down by the river. It is really impressive.

I also thought that the largest contiguous empire of all time extended from the Korean peninsula to and including the Hungarian plains (and here l highlight "contiguous" - meaning continually adjacent territories - because the British Empire was an ultramarine empire - consisting of "overseas" colonies, dominions, possessions and protectorates - and at its zenith had an area slightly larger than Mongol Empire).
