Question 71
TIQB - 071



"Mario" (video game series)

Question 71 from The Impossible Quiz Book is the twenty-first question of the Book's second Chapter, and the first of ten questions whose graphics are inspired by the Retro era of video games, following the update that came right after the "Pac-Frank" mini-game.

This is the time where video games took it up a notch and started having a greater impact, being released in a still pixelated yet fancier visual style and introducing interesting gameplay elements, thus captivating a broader audience. This section is an homage to many of these games, and the questions now contain the upgraded visual style of the 8-bit and 16-bit games that many people still love nowadays.

It's because of this that one of the most iconic video game characters of this era (if not THE most iconic character) is referenced in this question, which says "Which country produces the finest plumbers in the world?". The potential answers to this are "Russia", "Italy", "Poland" and "Ethiopia".

The correct one is "Italy", because the question is referring to none other than Mario, that short, moustached Italian plumber that always rescues Princess Peach from the series's main villain, Bowser.
