My first thought was Guyana, then Georgia, Germany – it only struck me that it's Gabon when I had 30 seconds left.

well, most of Kazakhstan is either grassland or desert. Only part of Kazakstan with enouth precipitation to support forest is in the north. The more south you go, the drier it gets

For me at least, when I think of Kazakhstan, I don't think of vast forest.

Something is off. The values given in the quiz don't match the answers showing up when completed. The forest area of Sweden in the quiz is larger than the actual country size for example.

I struggle a bit with alphabetical quizzes. I think visually, and mostly remember places by how they look in a map. The idea of categorising countries by the alphabet is a bit arbitrary but gives some interesting answers and will suit some so each to their own.

I hope Oman is actively protecting it's 25 square kilometres of forest.

Qatar. Bruh. Do they not have a single city park or something that could count for something of a forest??

I wonder how different this would be with percentages instead. Does anyone know if there's a quiz like that?

There is this one: Countries with the Highest Percentage of Forest, but it isn't an A-Z quiz.

That's what I thought this one was at first, and wasted a long time thinking of smaller countries. The combination of % and A-Z is very difficult indeed...
