I kept typing "Ulaanbaatar" and "Nur-Sultan" until I realized I had to type the country, not the coldest capital city :D

I did the same thing, but I didn't realize I needed to type the countries until after the time ran out.

The cheese production question says Iceland is the 6th, but only four answers are given.

The statistic about heavy metal bands is fascinating. I wonder why that is?

I feel like the smallest 'I' country should specify that it's smallest by population

The question is actually asking for "smallest 'I' country" by geographical size, as both Ireland and Israel are greater than Iceland in population. I agree that it might help for the question to be more specific, however.

Great quiz, but could you clarify for the "smallest country that starts with I" you mean area, because I spent about a minute trying to think of countries with smaller populations than Iceland haha.

Cheese production is listed as #6 for Iceland, but only 4 countries are shown to beat it. Is this an error?
