This used to make me pause for thought when filling in the ethnicity section on some forms. "Asian" (see UK def.), "Chinese" (even though I'm not, but it's getting close-ish) or "Other" (sigh). The last would always win.

Disclaimer: Shaded areas are approximate. I'm just trying to convey my annoyance. Based on personal and a small focus group of friends experiences alone. Definition of Asia will vary between peopl- blah blah blah yadda yadda.

1. That part of the image was supposed to display what's technically Asia

2. Anything east of the Caucasus is considered Asian. Just because Russia is more population dense in the east doesn't mean that nobody shares Asian culture.

3. Saudi Arabia is most certainly Asian, as well as Turkey and other middle-eastern states.
