This was a great and fun quiz to take! Just a small correction, Kufra subdivision is not in Algeria, it is located in Libya.

Timbuktu for Tombouctou? That's the more common Latinization, I think.

I know Canada is ridiculously big, but I still would have never guessed the Yukon is bigger than Nevada, much less California - gotta love the distortion of map projections.

Nice quiz! Got the biggest 20, plus 17 other smaller regions, but plenty of room for improvement.

I missed Arkhangelsk because I didn't type the H; I always spell it that way and it is accepted on other quizzes. I'll try to remember the correct spelling moving forward, but in case I forget, would you consider accepting "Arkangelsk", without the H?

It's accepted without the 'H' now.
