After taking user feedback on board, I’ve decided to stick with only bona fide countries on the Asia quiz. This means that territories such as Hong Kong, Macau, the West Bank, and the Gaza strip have been removed from the updated version. I’ve omitted Egypt, but kept Cyprus, Russia, and the Caucasus states.
A note on nomenclature: I’ve chosen to go with the “popular” names of most countries. So I’m using Taiwan instead of the “Republic of China”, and East Timor instead of Timor-Leste. In particular, I’m using Burma instead of “Myanmar” as Burma is the name of choice for the pro-democracy movement.
