Just got 193/196! I've been grinding this quiz for a few weeks and I've finally almost beaten it. I only missed Ghana, Sierra Leone, and Uganda :)

Apr 5, 2024
Keep going :)

I am taking this quiz 5 years after my previous attempt, and I still remember all the countries, several of which I did not know before this site. Let alone be able to point them on a map.

But must admit, I missed fiji and costa rica just now.. Sorry

On capitals however... I think I have forgotten half of what I have learned. Then again the majority of those might have been new to me.

It's annoying when you forget that one country in that one continent, but eventually you get pretty consistent. I usually start with NA, go to SA, then Europe, Asia, OCE, and Africa.

How did an error like this go unnoticed for over a decade? Congratulations, you’re the first to notice this - you should get a medal.

In all seriousness, you’re not the first to comment your opinion on this quiz, and you won’t be the last. Some people (including the creator of this quiz, who is also the owner of the site) believe Taiwan to be an independent country, so it will most likely stay that way. And anyways, in the end JetPunk is just a small quizzing website where geography nerds spend their online hours, so it’s not like the answers on this quiz will spark a war between China and Taiwan or anything.

Not sure how long it's been like this, but why is Crimea listed as part of Russia? It's part of Ukraine.

Russia annexed it illegally - doesn't mean the rest of us need to accept it. According to the US govt: Crimea is part of Ukraine. Some of the countries recognising its annexation include Afghanistan and North Korea.

I get that Russia has control over it but it feels like a slap in the face to Ukraine to say that it is just part of Russia the same as Moscow or St Petersburg.

If Russia has control over it - even if it was annexed illegally - it’s part of Russia. Going by your logic, we should recognize Czechoslovakia on the world map because it would be just so unfair and rude to leave them out.

Not really, because the US Government does not recognize Czechoslovakia since the 90s

It was one of the few countries that I straight up didn’t know before this site. There were many where I had at least heard the name but that was it, but East Timor is one that was new.

I think a good strategy for order is starting with Canada, filling out the Americas southwards until you reach the bottom of South America. Once all of the American countries are done, you type France and get French Guiana, completing the Americas and then you just continue with Europe and finish the rest in an border based order.

6:51 - but I'm just happy that I have everything correct. Could probably go sub 6 pretty easily but for the last 3 I always have to check what micronation is missing in the list below.

May I ask what continent you start on first and how you continue your route?

Kosovo and Taiwan but not Palestine?
+2
Level 34
Apr 5, 2024
Taiwan and Kosovo are both countries. Taiwan was declared independence from China in 1949 while Kosovo was declared independent from Serbia in 2008. Palestine is not technically a country since its Israeli territory, therefore it has no reason to be added to this quiz.
+1
Level 68
Apr 14, 2024
Palestine isn’t a territory of Israel but Taiwan is a province of China
+1
Level 93
Apr 14, 2024
Taiwan is 100% self-governing, whereas Palestine doesn't even have a government. Calling Taiwan a province of China is like calling Ukraine a province of Russia, or calling Guyana a province of Venezuela.

Because someone trying to quiz themselves on their country knowledge wouldn’t type “General Knowledge Quiz #173” into the search bar, they’d type “Countries of the World Quiz.” Most of the takes on this quiz aren’t from people with accounts.

I can only get around 5:31 time usage. I don't really abbreviate much of what I type other than CAR and DRC. I don't really know that it would make all that much of a difference if I even used the shortcut. Overall this quiz has greatly expanded my knowledge of not only names, but also locations of every UN country in the world. Great resource.
