Um, if the sphere of influence in China isn't included, then why does China work?

Because France had a real colonial concession in Guangzhouwan (in Guangdong), which was administrered as part of the French Indochina

Then why would you bother excluding those other areas if China was going to be accepted anyway. That's just confusing and misleading.

What about Vanuatu. I can understand that Vanuatu was ruled jointly between the British and French so I can let that slide though. Also, Syria spread into Turkey, Djibouti spread into Yemen, and Guinea spread into Guinea-Bissau. That's all I saw though.

Added the province of Hatay (Turkey). For Yemen, France never claimed sovereignty on its territory. Only a French trading company bought some in the late 1800s, but the French government never recognized it. For Guinea-Bissau, the border with French Western Africa was fixed in 1885, and the current territory of Guinea-Bissau has never been French during the inter-war period.

Totally forgot Madagascar. Really good quiz! More challenging than the other ones that only highlight the empire, which is too easy. Just needs to fix that map width, since it crosses with ads.

What about Turkey? The Hatay region was occupied by France until 1939, annexed by Turkey, then.

If China, India and Turkey are answers then the question "Name the modern-day-countries that were part of the Second French colonial empire" is wrong. You should be asking which modern day countries have parts that were part of...

So frustrating that you don't accept Republic of Congo or Republic of the Congo. You had me seriously doubting my history knowledge.

Agreed on this. I tried, in vain, a couple of different standard JetPunk ways of typing in Rep Congo before concluding it apparently wasn't an accepted answer.
