Nice quiz, but I think you may have a tad bit too much time for a 10 country quiz.

Finland? "The land cover is primarily a boreal forest biome, with more than 180,000 recorded lakes."

It’s really weird that the study linked by the author is ignoring Finland, when it has more than 188,000 lakes. I don’t know how they counted that.

Thank you for notifying me of this. I had looked at quite a few links, each sourcing the same study; It helps a lot.

Finland reminded me a lot of my home province (Manitoba), which once bragged that it had 100,000 lakes on its license plates - though by most measurements that seems to have been an exaggeration.

idk I don't think it's a big exaggeration. It depends what it classified as a lake too.

Finland indeed has between around 168 000 and 190 000 lakes depending on what is counted as a lake. This should be corrected.

Argentina and Kazakhstan are spelled incorrectly.
