Nice work Jerry! i was surprised to see Central Asian Republics on this quiz. i knew there are some problems over there regarding freedom of speech or soviet ideas but i did not know that they were this severe that it earned them a spot at "not free" countries list.

And I was surprised that Turkey isn't on here, after the way it has shut down a free press, and has had thousands of people arrested and judges sacked in 2016/17. The good people at Freedom House have let that country off with a score of 9.
