I would have done pretty well with this- up until the point you get to all the Balkan and former USSR states that had the gall to break into different countries after the Iron Curtain fell. Most of those countries broke apart right before I entered high school, and by the time geography came round again we had yet to get updated textbooks
Most of the people around here solve this by switching "Soviet" to "Russian". Eastern Europe consists of Greek tourist attractions, Romanian gypsies and different kinds of Russians.
embarrassing west european!
oh, well, i suppose not everyone spent their teenage years listening to short wave radio from around the world and reading maps...
i am so sad for those people who missed out!
