Why? EPCOT has 11 countries in one place. If that's not geography, I don't know what is.

The world globe on my desk has about 195 countries in one place. Is the name of a specific globe manufacturer a good question for a geography quiz?

Epcot Center receives more tourists every year than Amsterdam, Barcelona, or Istanbul. Would you object to them being on a quiz?

Bit of a false analogy, number of tourists has nothing to do with geography.

You would've needed to visit Disneyland to know Epcot, I had never heard of such a thing.

Amsterdam, Barcelona and Istanbul are major cities.

You don’t need to visit Disneyland to know about Epcot because it’s not in Disneyland. It’s at Walt Disney World :)

"What the heck is a Hijab doing here? We're not all Muslims."

"What the heck is Perth doing here? We're not all Australians."

"What the heck is an atlas doing here? We're not all cartographers."

"What the heck is sheep doing here? We're not all farmers."

"What the heck is a river doing here? We're not all swimmers."

I could do this all day.

Everyone knows what most of these above are, except of Perth, which rightly is on a geography quiz. But who cares about a component of an American theme park?

From Wikipedia:

"In 2019, Epcot hosted 12.444 million guests, ranking it as the fourth-most-visited theme park in North America and the seventh-most-visited theme park in the world."

I'd say those 12 million people would probably care.

Epcot is definitely out of place on a geography quiz like this.

The last letter of this word will be the first letter of the next word. Only Samoa fits this quiz. Saura, Salaa and Songa aren't countries.

Yes, but it is more elegant if the clues can only lead to one answer in my opinion.

I think I would've struggled with "heath" as well had I not just watched several episodes of Sherlock Holmes starring Jeremy Brett. Caught a break there.

Well it can't be basil, because that's a herb. Maybe the herb is named after the city.... nope, didn't work. Hmm. My brain is telling me basil. How many ways are there to spell that? Took me way too long to get it.
