Slight nitpick, these countries would be Nordic and not Scandivanian (as that would exclude Finland and Iceland). Also, the cells have a white background color which means in dark mode it looks kinda off.

Other than that, absolutely stunning :D

Thanks! And fair point. Since the definition of Scandinavia is somewhat loose I went with it but in most cases it excludes Finland and Iceland as you say so Nordic is the better fit,

I love how Mollehoj with a height of 170 meters is considered a mountain in this quiz.

Indeed that's a bit of a stretch but I thought I'd grant it the status

the map for Norway's counties is slightly outdated, since Norway merged alot of its counties in 2020

You are correct (as your name would suggest). I will add a note that it predates the most recent change. Not ideal but changing it doesn't seem feasible without a new map and reset of the stats. Apparently some of the changes have not been too popular either so who knows how long it lasts ;)
