On JetPunk, Bolivia is generally accredited with having capitals in both La Paz AND Sucre. According to the Googles: La Paz is the seat of the government, and Sucre is the legal capital and the seat of the judiciary. Hope this helps :)

Is there a version where you have to unscramble the anagram of the capital city, then your answer has to be the country that the city is capital of? So RPSIA would be France.

Pro tip to make this quiz much easier for anyone that is trying to get the random geography badge and is stuck on this quiz: First off, don't click start quiz until you have figured out each capital city. The best way to find each capital city is to search up capital cities by the amount of letters in the scrambles that you are given (I personally suggest using the website "bestforpuzzles" to find the lists of capital cities). Then use Ctrl+F on whichever website you choose to look for letters that are in the scrambles that you have. Use some form of notepad, whether it be online or physical, to write down each capital city as you figure them out. By doing this, you should be able to easily find all 20 capitals in 15-20 minutes maximum. Hopefully this helps!
