The map is a bit wierd, and Israel owns Palestine

The map shows Israel owning Palestine... what is your complaint?

Level 65
Feb 19, 2021
Some quiz makers might disagree, but they have to follow the JetPunk convection that Palestine is not a country.

You should grey out Palestine or use the striped function on Inkscape.

No, that is different. Jammu and Kashmir are disputed regions, with China, India, and Pakistan all laying claim. Palestine is a separate geopolitical entity subjugated by Israel.

According to Jetpunk, Palestine is not a country. Regardless of personal opinions on that matter, quiz makers must show it as so.

Having Crimea turn green when "Russia" is typed in rather than "Ukraine" is certainly... a choice.

I personally do not like Russia at all, but to be objective I just went with what COTW does.

It's your choice. Quizmaster even said this on the Russian Oblasts quiz: I say any quizmaker who wants to make a quiz can make a personal choice on whether to include Crimea or not.

Level 51
Apr 20, 2021
Crimea speaks Russian and is under the jurisdiction of the Russian federal government. It only makes sense that it is part of Russia
+2
Level 55
Apr 23, 2021
it doesn't matter if it speaks russian
+2
Level 55
Aug 17, 2021
It is de facto controlled by Russia, but to say it is under Russian jurisdiction goes a bit far. With the exception of Russia's close allies, every country recognises Crimea as part of Ukrainian sovereign territory, and the Russian annexation of Crimea followed a farce of a referendum conducted without international oversight, and with armed Russian soldiers at each polling station.
+1

Austria speaks German, yet it is not part of Germany. The USA speaks English and it isn't part of the UK. The fact that Crimea speaks Russian doesn't matter.

Good idea, but the SVG is a bit rough. Maybe fine-tune the borders more?

It's very interesting, but in the end it's just another countries on a map quiz, that all the geography nerds will get a maximum on. I did.

Show some respect. I have known the countries of the world for five years, and I still enjoy these. Having some experience with SVG's, I know that this probably took a while to make. However, it is not as hard as for someone like me making them with a text editor. I really wish the map stroke would be reduced to the default of one pixel though. Or maybe even use this code so the stroke reduces when you guess it right: <style>.svg-holder .svg-correct{stroke-width:1px !important}</style>.

Hey Clutch, please don't take it the wrong way - I didn't intend any disrespect at all. I have great respect for all the setters of these excellent quizzes, and I really enjoy them. My original comment still remains valid though.

Isn't it because on the map, Ukraine spills over into Moldova, so if you type in Ukraine first, the formerly Persian part of Moldova becomes green too?

Not true. The small occupied portion of Moldova turns green. These quizzes only light up the territory occupied. I like it better this way.

Level 82
Apr 22, 2021
It's easy to miss. I can't see which part of Moldova is included, but I guessed that it must be the missing country based on being the only country with a border close enough to the green area.

It’s the very southern tip (the bit where it gets very near the sea!).

I can see why Moldova is the most missed one, but I typically just guess everything in that vicinity so I didn't pay attention to where it was actually included
