Can I ask how you decided the subregions? Some things don't make sense. For example, Algeria is the largest country of Africa and yet it isn't included in any African region. The Dominican Republic is also larger than Haiti and the fact that you included Santo Domingo means that you should include that instead. Also Cuba is in the Caribbean and larger than either one. There are also numerous other problems.

It is by population, not country size, so Haiti is more populous than the Dominican Republic and Cuba, Santo Domingo is the most populous city in the Caribbean, and Egypt is more populous than Algeria.

Well, I agree some of these might be wrong, but I used the source that I added in the info section of the quiz

Also, it's about the population size and not by area

Nice quiz, but I think the UK is included in Northern Europe under this UN geoscheme, also on the map you provided it is part of Northern Europe. So Stockholm should be replaced by London and biggest city in Western Europe would be Paris.

Great quiz! Although I'm pretty sure Honolulu is the most populated urban area in Polynesia.
