I'm creating a quiz, which is practically the same thing as this one, but it does not have an SVG map and it is not of the United States, but of Brazil. By the way: Cool to find out that Brazil has 10 more municipalities over 100 thousand inhabitants than the USA, that is, 324 municipalites. One of them is mine, Belo Horizonte, with more than 2.5 million people (6th position).

Clinton, MI should be Clinton Township. "Clinton" is a small village with a population of ~2000. However, inclusion of clinton township is atypical in these types of games as it is NOT a city by definition, but a town, and thus does not have to provide all of the services that cities do. Rather, many of the services fall to the county
+4
Level 72
Sep 19, 2020
I was just going off the Wikipedia page, which does include Clinton. But when you click on the link, it goes to Clinton Township so I'm not exactly sure. I think it's best to keep it as is.

Crazy to see my hometown being discussed on here - I'm in Clinton Twp as I type this. Can confirm it's not technically a city and I think doesn't qualify for your quiz (as much as it's nice having some recognition for our sizable 100k population)
