"FS of Micronesia" is kind of lame. The country is consistently "Micronesia" on Jetpunk. The "F" one should be Fiji (unless Finland is actually closer).

Well the USA, UK, and UAE are all referred to as by United not by America, Kingdom, and Arab Emirates. Also, the DR Congo and R Congo are both referred to as the Congo on the country quiz, but definitely start with D and R, not C. The Federated States of Micronesia starts with an F and not M.

No, it's consistently known throughout Jetpunk as 'Federated States of Micronesia', and Micronesia is accepted as a courtesy.

Well, thank you for this courtesy. Greetings from the Kingdom of Belgium, which is bordered by the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and the Federal Republic of Germany.

All official names. The common names (Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany) are all NOT official.

I wonder if this country is often referred to this way because other states and territories in the Micronesia region have been able to force the qualification. Is it similar in that way to Greece with the former FYR of (now North) Macedonia? And like many Latin Americans would prefer, but are unable to force, such a qualification in reference to "America" and the US?

By that logic Australia should be referred to as the Commonwealth of Australia. Burma as the Republic of the Union of Myanmar. Cambodia as the Kingdom of Cambodia. This could occur for nearly every country in your quiz. I think what 'nonono' is saying is that it should be consistent with other Jetpunk Quizzes. Playing by your rules, the correct answer for F would be the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal.

Love seeing people going into meltdown over broken jetpunk conventions. I got 100% because I remembered it as FS, while I was kind of surprised, if you know it you'll get it.

I was more concerned with "Burma" when in pretty much all capacities it is now "Myanmar"

The FSM type-in doesn't work like it does everywhere else, so after trying it, I figured it mush be some other country, and eventually gave up, only to find I was right the first time.

I find that the answer for V can be very telling for these quizzes. Vietnam, Venezuela, Vatican city, and Vanuatu are pretty spread out so you get some idea what part of the world you are in

I think a lot of the heartburn over Micronesia could be alleviated by accepting FSM, as in the Countries of the World quiz.

I tried FSM and it wasn't accepted, so I assumed this wasn't the correct answer. Felt a bit cheated when it turned out I was right the first time.

OMG, I typed FSM so many times!!! I'm sorry, but a quiz can't be starred if it doesn't allow Jetpunk type-ins. I have to give this 1 star until it's fixed.
