If you Google "countries with no income tax," you will probably see some lists that include Andorra. Andorra used to have no income tax, but they established one in the 2010s.

Great quiz- I really love these. A note on Marx- he lived in Brussels, Paris, Cologne and London, the latter for the longest time, so maybe the question needs to be more specific.
Level 86
Nov 3, 2021
More specific how? Only one of the 4 countries containing those cities is still available by the time you get to that question.

I had no idea Andorra was technically ruled by the President of France and the Bishop of Catalonia! You learn something new every day....

Maybe come up with a different clue for Ireland. It won't be long before it's incorrect. Catholicism is rapidly on the decline in Ireland and the church nowhere near as popular as it once was.
Level 86
Jan 24, 2022
Looks like there's a census coming for Ireland in 2022 (was supposed to be in 2021 but got delayed due to you-know-what). If that census shows Catholics are no longer the majority, I'll change the question. I would be surprised if it happens, though; that would be a pretty sharp drop from 78% in the last census only 5 years ago.

Well, I ended up changing this anyway to make another clue work.

How does Poland have multiple cities with over 1 million inhabitants? As a Pole I can assure you that it's only Warsaw - the second biggest city, Krakow, is estimated to have 850 thousand inhabitants.

"Any reference to city population refers to urban agglomeration population according to"--citypop has both Warsaw and Katowice at over 2,000,000 for urban agglomeration population.
Level 50
May 19, 2022
that is a lie. City of Katowice has around 370k. Katowice + other cities around that city (for example Chorzów, Sosnowiec, Zabrze, Rybnik, Gliwice and many more) add up to this 2 milion. How can you count population of mulitiple cities as population of one city?
Level 86
May 19, 2022
From the CityPop glossary: "(Urban) agglomerations and metropolitan areas include a central city and neighboring towns (suburbs) forming a connected region of dense, predominately urban population. Their population is economically and culturally linked to the central city (e.g., by commuters)." The Katowice urban area seems to fit that definition to me.

If I find time to look into it, I'll consider changing it, but the current clue seems correct to me.

Level 77
Oct 10, 2022
So you have to change it from "multiple cities" to "multiple agglomerations" because now it's false. The caveat is not enough.

If you're counting urban area and not city proper, Greece has multiple 1m+ cities too.

Thessaloniki metro area is just over a million, but not the urban area.

The Winter's Tale has a famous reference to a setting on the "coast of Bohemia", so arguably the Czech Republic.

Fair point. Made some adjustments to address this.

Great quiz, but my ipad doesn't like the settings for some reason I have to scroll up and down to see each question and type my answer. Bloody frustrating as you waste more time doing that than answering.

That was fun, ty. Needed multiple takes.

I feel bad for Slovenia though :/ It's more than just 4 letters!

Slovenia has a more interesting clue on the original quiz. :)

But in Poland there is only one 1000 000 city, and its Warsaw. Silesia its not a city, its region with lots of cities that have 300000 - 500000. But not 1mln

I have decided to remove the "To have multiple cities with population greater than 1,000,000" clue and replace it with something else. The new clue will be up as soon as the changes are approved.

I love these quizzes! Could you make a third one please?
Level 86
Jan 30, 2023
Thanks! I think it'd be pretty tough to come up with a third set of new clues, but never say never, I suppose.

Don't forget to try the rest of the quizzes in the series if you haven't already.

I am quite late to reply, but if I make the questions is there a way you could actually make the quiz?

I suppose. You could also try making the quiz yourself if you're interested. Making quizzes is not that difficult--the editor is pretty user-friendly.

Brilliant quiz! I'm not sure how so many got the flag answer -either that feature is much more obvious to others than to me or they made very good use of process of elimination and time. I was playing on mobile though which made it a bit trickier

Estonia also depicts a natural feature, it shows a forest.
Level 86
Apr 25, 2023
Umm, Estonia's flag is just three horizontal bars of solid color?

I think they mean it represents a forest, which it does but it's not specific where it is or what forest it is.
