This was a really interesting quiz! I spent two minutes trying to figure out the last answer, but I almost missed Indonesia because I thought I had already guessed it... but I did it with 8 seconds to spare.

Yup. I was down to some ridiculous things. My time would have been better spent reading the instructions than typing Peru.

I mean, Peru is the 19th largest country in the world, and it's coastal, so it wasn't a horrible guess. I guessed it too towards the end.

I still think that Greenland shouldn't be included, if it doesn't count towards any of the other "biggest area" quiz. Cool quiz though.

I had two seconds left, and I just randomly decided to type 'France,' I was shocked to get 100% off a guess like that, but when I thought about it, it made a lot of sense, :)

I was playing this just as the coastline bit and got 19/21 lol. Didn't even realize or process that the caveat says 'borders included' so I missed D.R Congo and Kazakstan

I think there should be a note marking that autonomous regions count, since I almost missed Denmark. Also, I think its cool that even small countries like PNG can get on it due to their islands.

You mean like the caveat that does exactly what you asked for? Yeah, there should be one indeed. :-D

New Zealand has a coastline of 15,000km. Why is this not accepted?

Level 55
Oct 26, 2021
Kazakhstan really shows how much influence the sometimes very fractal coastlines have here, when you see how much higher on the list significantly smaller countries like Norway, the UK or the Philippines are.

Yes, and this must be why Algeria is not on here (the largest land-mass country in Africa), and yet the Democratic Republic of the Congo is.

also greenland shouldn't be counted on this quiz because yeh its a part of denmark, but it makes it look like denmark is giant. Also how is greenland this high when its smaller than libya
