    1. It's Alaska, but I like to think it's really Hawaii - because their coastline goes all the way!

    Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan... maybe more central Asian countries, I don't know the exact borders of Khwarezm. Crusader Kings 2 is failing me, or I'm failing it.

    3 - If I remember correctly that was an old Persian empire, along the Caspian Sea, so we're talking Iran, Turkmenistan, Kazakstan... eh... I can't remember. Maybe Afghanistan and Uzbekistan?
