Agreed that this was easy but I know to the average person it wouldn't be. Jetpunk visitors are just geography nerds.

Denmark-Netherlands always gets me. I drove from the UK to Denmark once, and was very shocked that I had to go through Germany to get there. Even now I still can't quite accept it for some reason.

Monaco-Italy, Croatia-Italy, Czechia-Hungary, Finland-Estonia, Lithuania-Ukraine might also be more tricky European ones.

Sth Am: Ecuador-Brazil, Paraguay-Uruguay, Venezuela-Peru, Guyana-French Guiana (/France) might be trickier too.

I think France-Brazil would be a case of trying too hard to appear wrong and actually end up being bit of a giveaway.

This was an easy quiz. You should make a harder version for small borders or borders many people may not recognize like France-Netherlands, Morocco-Spain, Spain-U.K., etc.

Gibraltar is an overseas territory and not part of the UK though.

I think the French/Dutch parts of St Martin are similarly not officially part of their parent country proper (but don't quote me on that, the statuses French overseas collectivities/regions/departments aren't my special area of expertise :)

I believe the Dutch side is an integral part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, but not so with the French.

Holy sh*t, was surprised I got 100% first try. I usually never do so well on these multiple choice quizzes. I like these simpler quizzes where you can complete them first try often.

I avoided taking this quize for a long time because I thought for sure it would be filled with esoteric anomalies and technicalities. I was wrong...

If you asked a random person on the street, they may get 50% of these (given it's a 50/50 guess). But on Jetpunk, nearly half of us get them all. That's something.
