nice! I'd change the "siberia" clue since that refers to the Asian part of Russia

Hindi for Fiji is quite misleading since only 28% are hindus while about 64% are christian (45% protestant).

1. Speaking Hindi does not mean you are Hindu, the number of Hindi speakers are higher than the number of Hindus.

2. From ~1940s - 2000s, the percentage of Hindi speaking people in Fiji were higher than Fijian speakers.

3. It doesn’t need to be a direct pointer to the country, but we all know that Fiji is basically the only country you can associate with Hindi, in Oceania that is.

Hope that helped.

That was great. The only one I had to guess was Atacama.

I recommend using something else -- like Kiwi or Maori -- for New Zealand. Just using a city in that country seems too easy or not clever enough. Kaliningrad is considerably less obvious for Russia and has a story attached to it, and Zanzibar is both more difficult than Dar es Salaam, and also the "zan" in Tanzania.

Great quiz, but yeah, it almost felt like cheating when I saw the Auckland clue.

Inflation could also go for Argentina. And sadly, probably my beloved Chile soon.
