Quiz Description

They're tiny! They're eccentric! There's more of them than you might think! Twelve questions, all about entities that (a) claim to be independent nation states and (b) are not officially recognized by world governments or major international organizations. Mixed difficulty, skews medium-hard, and you're going to need a serious grasp of geography if you want all 12.
