No, vammy is correct. Sri Lanka's legislative government is seated in Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte and the judicial and executive branches are seated in Colombo. Just like How South Africa and the Netherlands have various branches of government seated in various cities.

Brunei and Sri Lanka can be solved actually with the fewest characters: 3.

Bandar Seri Begawan simplifies to BSB and Sri Jayewardenepura Kotte simplifies to SJK.

(both capital names googled but I didn't get either so)

PS: Capitals of Montenegro, Kosovo and Mauritius are easy to type. As for Ivory Coast and Iceland, I feel for you.

Dar es Salaam continued to serve as its capital, even when in 1964 Tanganyika and Zanzibar merged to form Tanzania. In 1973, however, provisions were made to relocate the capital to Dodoma, a more centrally located city in the interior.

When Indian children have to know how to spell things like Sri Jayawardenapura Kotte when they are ten...then they move to the USA and enter the Spelling Bee...they are given words like mispronounce...these kids are thinking..."Kindergarten level".

I had a 3:19, but it is completely luck-based. I can't remember which ones were on that quiz, but they probably included some of the following: both Congo's, China, UK, USA, PNG, and other very quick type-ins. Having a time of 3:04 is still very impressive. I doubt I will be able to repeat any time under 3:15. People with very high words per minute may only get a time of 3:00 because he/she ends up with the worst countries for the purposes of this quiz, like Honduras, Netherlands, New Zealand, Australia, Venezuela, Guinea-Bissau, etc while getting none of the short country names.

this is what google has to say about the capital of Israel dispute- Tel Aviv and Jerusalem served as de facto joint capitals of Israel from May to December 1948.

I did well because I have been practicing with capitals lately, but to all who take this quiz and do well on it, congratulations. It really shows that you know the countries and their capitals inside and out when you can match them in a random order, on the spot, like this. Well done to you all.
