If no one can guess them all, each correct answer is worth 20 points, so highest scorer wins. In the case of a tie, the member that sends me the most dark chocolate wins.

Going with the obvious guess for #2) Greenland

For #5) a third acceptable answer might be Tunis?

Gokul, yes #5 was the other answer.

For #2, think about a country that has imported most of their plant life.

1. Bhutan
2. Iceland. I know it's an island! If not, maybe great britain?
3.
4. US (Common Knowledge)
5. Tunis (Tunisia) & Algiers (Algeria)


final answer.

Thailand was invaded by Japan in ww2. It was after some brief fighting that Thailand decided to allow japan passage and joined them in a military alliance. Basically a vassal state as far as I can see it. Even tried to declare war on the US, but then internal fighting started and it never got delivered.

2.Antartica. Not a country, but relatively very little native plant life.
3. IIRC not all of China was occupied by Japan (mostly the costal areas). Large parts were still under Chineese control.
