Jetpunk says Asia. But the boundaries between Africa/Europe/Asia are effectively a social construct anyway. Turkey has more in common with Greece geographically than it does with Japan, Sri Lanka or Singapore. And Egypt has more in common with Jordan than it does with Madagascar. We have to put the boundaries somewhere and in cases like Cyprus, Georgia or Russia there are going to be complaints either way.

Cyprus is one of the great islands of the Mediterranean Sea (along with Sicily, Sardinia, Corsica and Crete), the most eastern of all, located between the southern coast of Anatolia and the Mediterranean coast of the Middle East. Geographically, it belongs to Asia, although culturally it is a mixture of European and Asian elements, with Europeans predominating, given its Greek past and the current two thirds of the population of Greek origin.

Cyprus is not in Asia, it is Europe, as well as half of Turkey, which is in both continents as Russia is too
+3
Level 79
Oct 12, 2018
The delineation between Asia and Europe is fuzzy at best. For JetPunk purposes, Cyprus and Turkey are in Asia and Russia is in Europe.

There are quizzes that mention that Istanbul straddles both continents and that Siberia is Asian, but in general some arbitrary decisions need to be made for consistency, especially for continental vaguenesses. Heck, there are all sorts of debates over just the number and names of continents.

zoom in close on Google maps and you'll see two dots for capital cities right next to each other, though it's the same city not even 2 miles across both of them. Zoom out and the two dots merge in to one, and Kotte disappears so that all that remains is Colombo.

Colombo really should be accepted as the capital of Sri Lanka like Amsterdam being accepted as the capital of Netherlands instead of Den Haag and Kuala Lumpur being accepted as the capital of Malaysia instead of Putrajaya despite the fact that both Netherlands and Malaysia keeps most of their political branch in Den Haag and Putrajaya respectively. Besides, Colombo still has the PM's house and office, President's house and office, and the Supreme Court which gives a considerable legitimacy for Colombo to be called 'a' political capital of Sri Lanka out of their two capitals. Also, all my Sri Lankan friends (I live in India so I have a lot of them) says that Colombo is their capital because... it really is for them. (Plus, Kotte is in the metro area of Colombo so it really makes Kotte seem much more insignificant than Colombo for them) It's not important what the government is saying: do you type Czechia or Czech Republic? Czech government want us to call them Czechia but who does?
+2
Level 82
Oct 5, 2019
I type Czechia because it's shorter. I think the situation with The Hague is a little bit different. Not familiar with Putrajaya. But agree on Colombo.
+3
Level 66
Sep 22, 2020
Czechia in written text, Czech Republic when spoken

I think Jetpunk should add Tel Aviv as an option (or type-in) for the capital of Israel, so that it for example says Tel Aviv/Jerusalem. The vast majority of countries recognize Tel Aviv as the capital, not Jerusalem, so I think that should by all means at least be an option.
+3
Level 59
Apr 10, 2020
A country can't decide the capital of another country. Israel says that their capital is Jerusalem, so all the other countries should respect that. For example Belgium can't just randomly decide that DC shouldn't be the capital of USA and that they should change it to New York.

Level 45

Colombo is also a joint capital for Sri Lanka

Level 23
Dec 20, 2021
If palestine isn't a country, why google maps ever write it as a country? Why is there so much history about Palestine as a country? why many countries recognize it as a state?

Level 65

1) Maps shows a dotted line.

2) See Wikipedia. "Palestine (Arabic: فلسطين, romanized: Filasṭīn), officially the State of Palestine[a] (Arabic: دولة فلسطين, romanized: Dawlat Filasṭīn) is a de jure sovereign state," although I do see your point.

3) Read Jetpunk standards, and read about the Big 5. You'll realize 3 out the 5 don't recognize Palestine.

Level 34
Feb 23, 2022
none of the big 5 recognize Taiwan so why is it on this list? Hm?

Wow, this took me soooo long to memorize. This was way harder than the flags.

Its funny cause both memorizing the names of the Stans and its capitals, were really tough for me to learn them, yet once you learn them, they're super easy to remember. While some of these others, even easy ones I space exactly. Surprisingly the Middle East was pretty easy, once got a hang of it, a lot of easy words to spell.

I now know every country in world, and for flags and capitals know them all except Africa. I'm gonna take the world quiz without knowing it, just like I did the flags, and see if I can get everything.
