As the T answer shows, Georgia can be an answer for G!

The columns read "neighbor" and "neighbour". In the answer stats they're vice versa.

Even when the quiz appeases both Americans and our friends from across the pond, there is still a complaint...

Palestine, really dude? You're an elder here at Jetpunk, you know the discourse. Are you pleased with yourself for being controversial?

I have looked out for discourse on this, and haven't found any yet! By that, I mean in all the posts on this topic, I've yet to hear one single argument to support your position. Why do you think that Palestine is not a country? The arguments for it being a country are compelling, though. These are: The number of countries recognizing Palestine continues to rise; it is now 137 of 196 countries (70%), more than those recognising Kosovo (108) or Taiwan (23). It has UN observer status (unlike Kosovo and Taiwan, which have no UN status at all). Its UN observer status is equal to Vatican City and (until 1992) Switzerland. Its control of its borders is as weak as Georgia and Cyprus. Therefore, Palestine is as much, if not more, of a country as all the others named here.

'Control of its borders'? You must be confused. The only claim they have to their land is a bunch of signs they stuck up in the Israeli desert. A country isn't a country if a majority of countries support it; it must be all (or almost all) of them. UN Observer status is no claim to being a country. Meanwhile, Israel has a three-thousand-year-old claim to the land. And anyway, even if you think it's a country, you should go with the Countries of the World Quiz definition, which is a good picture of JetPunk's guidelines on countries. (And by the way, if it weren't for the veto power given to China in the UN, Taiwan and Kosovo would probably be countries by this point.)

Using your own argument, Israel should not be counted as a country, because not all (or even almost all) countries recognize it. So, unlike you, I recognize Israel's right to exist! Now Israel has not claimed the West Bank or Gaza as Israeli territory, so it's clearly not a part of Israel or even a territory of it. And Palestinians have declared the same area to be the state of Palestine, a claim recognized by most of the world. At the UN in 2012, only 9 countries disagreed with that claim. If a country becomes partially occupied (think Georgia and Cyprus, as well as Palestine), that does not stop it being a country! Finally, when I drove across the Palestine-Israel border a few times last year, my passport was checked in the usual way that applies at international crossings.

I'm with you, Jerry. There's no telling whether Palestine will ever be a functional, independent (i.e. unoccupied) state in some sort of two-state solution; or whether it will be an integral part of a one-state solution; or whether it will simply be absorbed by Israel. For now, though, and as you say, it is recognized by more than two-thirds of UN member states. That's good enough for me.

I didn't read the entire thing, but it was interesting. The thing about adding the 'r' was intriguing. Finding out about countries names and how they were translated to English (and other languages) is something a lot of people would call useless, but finding out about how everything works is calming, like knowing where all the pieces go in a puzzle.

Myanmar translated to English from the native language means Burma so it basically the same thing.

Sweet quiz, but it needs way more time in my opinion. Good job!

Cheers, thanks! I think an ideal time length is when about 15% get every question right, but here 33% are getting every question right, so if anything we're being a touch generous on the time here.
