Please add Sucre. It's a capital of Bolivia, and it would make the quiz slightly more challenging and/or educational.

Actually Sucre is the constitutional capital and La Paz the seat of government (like Amsterdam and The Hague in Netherlands) so Sucre definitely should be added.

The Hague is in no way the capital of the Netherlands, only the court settles there but this does not make it a capital.

Just like Thimpu and Punaka for Bhutan and Bloemfontein, Pretoria and Cape Town for South Africa.

@dogla305 Not 'only the court'. Anything that has to do with Dutch national government resides in The Hague (parliament, all ministries) and virtually all embassies are there as well. Amsterdam is simply the constitutional capital and a huge economic and cultural center.

Why not? Sure, it's not a country, but it could be added. And if it is, I'd want to think that the Falklands can come here too, as well.

When dealing with island countries, jetpunk considers geographical proximity to be the most important criteria. Therefore, Trinidad-and-Tobago is very clearly part of North America. It's called #consistency.
