Amazing Race Route Concept #2

Warning: massive amount of text ahead. I created a mostly functional race route around the world (all loactions like buildings, businesses, landmarks, etc. are REAL locations and could theoretically actually work in the race). I tried to have a good variety in locations and types of challenges, but it's really hard! I find it a lot harder to complain about challenge design after making this. Even though this could technically happen there are probably some safety concerns in going to South Africa and Lesotho and it's probably not possible for the American Amazing Race to film in Cuba, but I decided to do it anyway. If you have any questions or feedback please let me know!

BHK leader Tsarukyan's casino loses license

In May/6/2020, before the "big bust" that got BHK leader Tsarukyan in trouble, the regulators had audited his Shangri La casino and found violations. The Casino was given time to fix the problems.
Later, after Tsarukyan's alleged voter bribery and financial crimes were revealed, his casino was implicated in a criminal case.
Today the Finance Ministry revoked the casino's license for failing to pay fees for 2020Q3.

Regulators audited BHK leader Tsarukyan's gold mine...

... located in Mkhart, and issued a $200 fine for operating without an environmental audit. The mine and its factory are told to get an audit.

Regulators audited the Electric Networks of Armenia...

... and issued a $21,000 fine. The company routinely overcharged consumers by writing higher usage numbers in the books, likely due to an error. Other problems were found.

BHK plans to "defend Armenia's traditions"

BHK leader Tsarukyan has instructed BHK's youth wing to organize a campaign against the upcoming Education Ministry reform that will merge Armenian Church subject with Armenian History in schools.
Tsarukyan called it an attack on Armenian values. The Ministry says having it as a separate subject makes no sense, but schools will have flexibility.
 
BHK will also protest against the upcoming education reforms that will help children better protect themselves against pedophiles.
BHK and other hardline traditionalists believe it'll teach sexual materials to children. The govt denies it, saying the education is more like "don't take candy from a stranger's van".

Diplomatic passports

After the 2018 evolution, it was revealed that the former administrations generously distributed diplomatic passports to their friends. Kocharyan's and Serj's entire family line, singer Sirusho, grandchildren, etc. received the privilege.
After the evolution, 395 such passports were revoked, while 762 new were issued.
 
The full list of owners is still considered a secret because "it contains classified information". Journalists want to get their hands on the list to make sure MFA isn't doing the same shenanigans.
MFA responded saying "the passports were issued according to law."
