Save Humanity by Guessing Countries

Evil aliens have decided to kill everyone on Earth! Fortunately, they've given you two minutes to save as many as you can. All you have to do is name a country to save everyone in it.
Each "answer" correct corresponds to 1 million people saved
Countries with fewer than 1 million people are rounded up
2020 population estimates according to Worldometers

I don't understand this one at all. If the purpose is to save the most people, then this becomes a countries with highest population quiz. Or am I missing something? (Anyway, all you Samoans out there can thank me for saving your bacon.)

Yeah it's basically a fast-typing quiz and a highest population quiz. But a lot of the appeal comes from people saving their own country and/or letting others they dislike die.

From the cynic's view, if this was real, some people would probably just save their own country so they could live it up with the resources from the rest of the world - assuming the aliens are willing to share. I'm not sure I would trust evil aliens to follow through with promises.

The countries I want to save have lowest percentage. It is impossible to name all countries in only 2 minutes. I have managed 69%. Congratulations to anybody that can get all. Brilliant quiz but can you add on an extra minute or two?

This should be longer especially as the graphics for the bigger countries takes a while to download so you are left hanging which wastes time. I suggest 5 or 6 minutes esp as you have another quiz on here that is to name 3 countries beginning with J in 2 minutes.
