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)

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
