Great idea for a quiz! A few ideas: use the yellow box option so people aren't just typing in random countries (as a result, increase the time as well). Maybe change the column header from "Answer" to "Country" so that people know what to type in. Great job!

Oops - I knew I'd forgotten something, always meant to yellow box it. Thanks!
