"Countries that are too small to be easily seen are not included"

After time ran out, I still hard trouble finding the tiny red dot that is Burundi.

There is supposed to be some challenge in this. Saying that, I have now removed Burundi and Rwanda.

They aren't THAT hard...

I feel like removing Rwanda and Burundi was a bad idea, especially as other, smaller countries are still included anyway. The quiz was fine the way it was.

To me, there's a big difference between an island micro-nation, such as Palau or St. Lucia, and a tiny nation surrounded by other countries on land, such as Rwanda and Burundi.

The title is misleading. It should be "Borderless World Map without 20 countries"

Interesting concept. I have to agree with @KingEureka.

The point is this is the completed "empty world map" from the famous series on JetPunk. It is not simply a borderless world map.

To me it looks borderless and green but sure

At random, my map was missing Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, which made it quite difficult to notice that any of them were missing. Great quiz!

This is a great quiz except that this virtually identical quiz is already featured

Personally I like the challenge that you can't see country borders. Makes it harder when coastline countries (e.g. Estonia) disappear.

And Estonia was the last one I got - so there you go.

New Zealand was one of the countries that i had to guess and I didn't even notice.

I even zoomed like in the Pacific islands like Fiji and still didn't notice.

Sorry to all the New Zealanders

New Zealand was missing for me. I didn't think much of the huge hole where the country should be. Guess I'm used to seeing it that way. (Also sorry to all the New Zealanders).

There are even two subreddits devoted to maps on which New Zealand is missing: and I guess for Kiwis it's nothing new that someone forgets them. 😁

I think this quiz is broken now. My 'guessed' box is out of 145 and no countries appear to be missing (and it's accepting every single country I type). So confused.

Thank you for reporting the issue, it looks like a recent update broke some old randomized quizzes.

Maybe it's just my end, but the map isn't empty anymore? It shows the entire world map in green

It was broken for a little bit. I'm trying some experiments to reduce our expensive bandwidth bill. Fixed now.
