The following countries make up a good part of Asia:
Israel, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, Yemen, UAE, Turkey, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Pakistan, Russia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, China, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Myanmar, Cambodia, Japan, Korea plus several more
