Nice quiz, nominated. I think it would look better if you moved the countries to the right end of the table.

Thanks! I'll give that a try when I update it again. The source has already been updated since my last check in June, so I'm going to aim for every few months considering how frequently it changes.

Is the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict even technically going on anymore? The breakaway state formally dissolved at the beginning of the year.

According to the US Council on Foreign Relations it's improving, but still ongoing. On March 19, 2024, Reuters reported that peace talks were getting mired down and the Armenian PM raised concerns there would be full scale war if a compromise isn't reached.
