This quiz took a week to create and I am very happy to submit it now. There are 3419 possible answers.

I will gladfully read your feedback if you have something to say, whether it be about the content (potential mistakes) or the form (especially the time limit).

You might get a lot of dots in Russia – blame them from both owning 11% of the world's land area and benefiting from the projection, not me!

I hope you'll have fun taking this quiz :)

Got a dot on the west of Alaska, hidden by my Ipad cover so I missed it. Annoying.

This is really a lot of fun, thank you! Needed several tries to reach 100%, finally made it with 5 dots in Russia, 3 Australia and 3 USA, and none in Oceania :-). It revealed some surprises for me, like Sudan reaching very far to the south. Great job!

A point several hundred miles west of Lake Tanganyika was identified as being part of Tanzania.My best guess is that the dot is close to Kamina, Democratic Republic of the Congo. Must be a mistake?

Hi! Could we have a red/blue scheme to help the colorblind? Thanks!

There is a colourblind mode that you can enable here. If it doesn't work for you, I know how to change the CSS for colourblind users only, but I won't bother if it already works.

Great quiz. 19/20 both times I've taken it. Slovakia timed me out as did Uzbekistan. 3rd time 17/20, and 4th time lucky, finally got 20/20. This is a quiz you can do again and again. It was a week well spent creating this masterpiece, Yev.

Just a suggestion Yev, and it is certainly not a criticism, but would it be possible for you introduce into your algorithm a maximum number of dots per country? Or even per continent?

It's a great idea, I actually thought about it before publishing the quiz. I'm not sure there's a way to do this on JetPunk, in fact I'm pretty sure you'd need to completely rework the code for that. May be feasible for someone else. But I can't

Can you tell me quizmakers how is Crimea considered Russia? Why do you support Russian propaganda?

Level 82
Oct 7, 2020
JetPunk recognises the fact that Crimea is in Russia's hands, and it is, regardless of your opinion. It doesn't mean it's legitimate, but it's the truth.

oh right, I excluded COTW from the algorithm because its spikes are mostly unrelated to FPs

Level 56
Oct 9, 2020
It was actually Save European which had the crown before this quiz. Save Humanity was on top before Save European. And, here we usually talk about takes quizzes on front page got in one single day, as Stewart told me sometime in 2014, COTW got 75k takes in one day. And I doubt if any user quiz can achieve that while on FP...

Dec 24, 2021
Since the chance of getting russia is roughly 1/10, and the chance of getting iran is roughly 1/100, the chance that you got 10 of each is roughly 1/10^18, you are lying.
