Yes it is weird that it is hard, even if you can list all the countries. Because you look at it from a different angle.

(Like most people cant say the alphabet as fast backwards as they can the normal way. Not the same thing, but similar)

Yup, only ones I missed was Russia and Mongolia and Algeria, and the had typed India just in time..

interesting how Slovakia has the top spot for most guessed. Guess it is because people read about Czechia in the description? (But since when did people start reading those..?)

Fun fact in Polish so many countries finish with IA or JA that it would be impossible to name them all in 5 minutes for example:

France - Francja

England - Anglia

Netherland - Holandia

Ireland - Irlandia

Spain - Hiszpania

Sweden - Szwecja

Switzerland - Szwajcaria

Norway - Norwegia

Finland - Finlandia

Kenya - Kenia

Libya - Libia

Brazil - Brazylia

Now all of them names come to my mind when i solve this quiz which makes it hard to find the right countires :D

Former Yugoslav Republic of MacedonIA, also the official term used by Macedonia itself is just Republic of MacedonIA, and FYROM is only used in contexts where Greece would get mad otherwise.

im really surprised the average score is so low on this one, i had time to go through all the countries and still finished with a minute remaining. Maybe because i ignored the prompts of the letter before the ia given already which i felt didn't really help all to much. Anyway really good quiz :)

The words just blur together as I run through them, and overlook things like Russia or St Lucia.

I guess my brain doesn't organize things phonetically or by suffixes.
