It'd probably be better to require the answers in order. I just randomly guess and answer ones that I haven't read yet.

Is "United Kingdom" technically correct for 1713? I'm not sure when that term became officially in use.

@dragynbob - yes. The UK came into existence with the Act of Union in 1707.

"Move border east to give Brandenburg, East Berlin, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, and Thuringia to this country." Well not officially. Some East Germans will indeed claim that their country was absorbed by West-Germany but officially these two states were re-united. Mecklenburg-Vorpommers, Saxony etc. were not "given" to Germany... nor were Bavaria, Hamburgt etc.

Good, difficult quiz! African geography/borders are always difficult. Hmmm... Suspicious that EVERYONE gets 100% on the "name the countries" of a given continent quizzes, but when there's information you have to abide by, the results on the geography quizzes aren't so ridiculous! Looking at a map or list on wikipedia doesn't just give you all the answers to this one!

E-milk, I'll go with the originator of the quiz on this one. "West Germany" didn't "expand" in 1990. GERMANY absorbed those locations.
