I have a feeling that Indonesia is bigger than Malaysia or Philippines and also close enough to NZ.

Yeah, that one threw me for a bit, when I couldn't figure out what could be bigger than Australia and closer to New Zealand than China. But made total sense once I realized it.

Great quiz!

One suggestion - although I don't know if it's possible. Can there be a yellow box for each country? E.g. if I'm answering for Ukraine, the answers entered should not be populated against other countries as well. (Within the 5 answers for Ukraine, one can enter in any sequence.)

Thanks
