The quiz should not rely on only some correct answers being accepted to function. 1 star.

I think you missed the category.. which I also did at first. The black is maybe not the most obvious color, and/or it could use a little separation from the blue directly underneath it.

That said, once I figured the category out, I mostly liked the quiz. The one thing I would definitely consider changing is either which country is final or which hints are leading up to it. It's not a particularly obvious inclusion in the category, and the hint of "it's in Africa" that the last 4 clues give is not very helpful. Even something as simple as the penultimate question being "Only remaining landlocked country" would help (as that country is much more obvious).

I also think you could use a couple questions like "the least densely populated country remaining" or "the northernmost country remaining", in short, superlatives. It would help the questions from getting a bit "samey".

Also you might want to say "Changed [the name of] its capital from Astana to Nur-Sultan... then back to Astana"

A great series! This one was a bit too difficult for me, though.
