Country Quiz - Win a T-Shirt!


Hello!

While researching countries to bring Democracy to, Brian and I unearthed some pretty interesting sounding places. However, we're having difficulty locating them on the map. Can anyone tell us where (and what) they are?

Almein

Eastasia

Gaaldine

Gondor

Vulgaria


There's a GymGlish T-shirt, plectrum and lighter for the first person who tells us where these countries can be found!

Good luck!

Edward

The Andrast, in the south-west of Gondor, is not a democracy yet.

Hi !
So, here is what I knew and what I found about this quiz :
All are fictional countries :p

Almein is supposed to be a rich persian country, as discribed by Oscar Goldman. Oscar is a character of the novel "Cybord" wrote by Martin Caidin in 1972.

Eastasia come from the novel "Nineteen Eighty-Four", wrote by George Orwell and published in 1949. Eastasia is discribed as one of the 3 superstates with Oceania and Eurasia.

Gaaldine is an island sutuated south to Gondal. Both have been imaginated by Emily Brontë and her sister Anne Bronte. Gaaldine is subject to Gondal (as a colony).

Gondor... Well, everybody know this famous realm from LOTR. Gondor was founded by Isildur and Anárion. It's finaly ruled by the great Aragorn.

Vulgaria is an European barony visited by the Potts family and Truly Scrumptious in their flying car, in the Ian Fleming's novel.

Your mind will have to travel a lot to visit all those countries but I'm sure it will be a very nice trip !
