PEI should be accepted. Saarland is only the fourth smallest German state.

I agree. The smaller states are city states and sometimes the distinction is made between city and territorial states. However, that is not an official distinction and by law all 16 states are equal. The difference is that the territorial states have smaller subdivision whereas the legal subdivision of the city states is the same as the state itself. Maybe add "territorial" to the question.

I don't know if it's the same for New Zealand, but in Canada, I'd bet people say "PEI" about ten times for every once they say "Prince Edward Island". In this case, I think there's more to it than laziness. DC and District of Columbia might be a fairly close comparison.

New Zealand actually roles off the tonque quite easily, especially if you pronounce it like a local "Nu Zilan"

I vote against "Island" locations. It dilutes the theme.

I agree, with the exception of the use of "islands" in a less literal sense, such as Rhode Island. This quiz is VERY long, and dropping some of the islands would bring it in line with most other Jetpunk quiz lengths. Other than that, though, it is a great idea.

The name of the quiz starts with "Ultimate". This already shows that most probably it'd be longer than a standard Jetpunk quiz.

You should change around the Pantanal and Marshall Islands questions so you can't get "pantanal", otherwise I wouldn't have gotten it and I bet most other people wouldn't either.

Yea that question is not written very well in my opinion. maybe the question above it wasn't there previously? then it would work.

Now it reads like you know that country that starts with f? ahh thát country. yeah name two provinces of it that end in -land

(or it seems to try to refer to the previous question but holland is not a country. You have "that country" referring to "region")

When typing in "Marshall Islands" you get given the "Marshland" answer by mistake. Maybe put the marshland (ie wetland) question before the Marshall Island one?

I regularly hear references to the entire city of Cleveland as "the mistake on the lake". Maybe the stadium thing was once true, but certainly by now the entire city has absorbed the moniker.
