Can you give some background on how South Korea declared war on the Axis in 1941?

My mistake, it was the whole of Korea as it was undivided and under Japanese rule in that time.

In 1941, the Republic of Korea had a provisional government and they declared war on Germany and Japan forming the "Korean Liberation Army".

Yet it remains unchanged in the quiz.

It's also unclear to me that a partially-recognized government-in-exile formed years after their country's surrender whose army exists solely as a branch of a foreign nation's armed forces should really be considered a "country" that declared war.

At the very least, you do need to update the quiz to fix the mistake.

Wasn't Iran known as Persia back then? I tried that and it didn't work.

Known by whom?

Depending on how you look at it, Iran became known as Iran in the West anywhere between 1907 and 1979.

*To Iranians*, it has been known as Iran or similar names for around 3000 years now.

For a list that's basically alphabetical it's kinda weird to put Lebanon between Iraq and Italy. How about a chronological list instead?

Would be more interesting if it were organized by date instead of alphabetic.
