I created a similar quiz 9 years after this one. (I searched but didn't find this one for some reason when I came up with the idea.) Anyway, I like the format of your quiz better.

First version I took this morning had Bosnia and Herzegovina on it (counting the last letter of "Bosnia" and the first letter of "and" as double a's). It was a very good choice to remove this.

Super quiz, thanks.

Only got 1 point on the first try, but I kicked myself when I saw the answers I had missed!

This was awesome, but could you mention that the letters listed are the ones that are doubled? I thought for a while that it was the starting letter of the word for some reason (the fact that the first one I thought of was the Philippines didn't help this!)

Yes that's the actual name , however the caveat says that it uses the official Jetpunk name 'St. Kitts and Nevis'

Surprisingly hard, but a nice little quiz. Got caught out by thinking the letter referred to was the first letter, rather than the repeated letter. : (

Holland is the informal name for The Netherlands :D

It also refers to two provinces in The Netherlands , North and South Holland !!

Hope this helps clear things up

If he is at level 35, I don't think that you are providing him with information that he was not already aware of. My apologies if the he is, in fact, a she... or something else.

There never was a country called Holland. There was a county called Holland once, centuries ago, which was roughly in the area of what is now Noord-Holland and Zuid-Holland, but it is not the exact same area.

Holy See

Level 67

To quote wiki:

Holy See is the jurisdiction of the Pope in his role as the bishop of Rome. It includes the apostolic episcopal see of the Diocese of Rome, which has ecclesiastical jurisdiction over the Catholic Church and sovereignty over the city-state known as Vatican City.

Having jurisdiction is not the name of the state.
