Wow, that graphic is beautiful. How about the Northwest Territories in Canada? Get another 45 degree direction in there! I guess you already have that one a couple times, though.

They were at first. Check the stats though. Most of the "longer line" answers are still some the lowest guessed even after that extra hint.

those are also the most difficult ones though. I guess most people outside north america have to guess for the airline for example (I had to)

Loved the quiz by the way. I always love itme when someone has an exciting new Idea for a geography quiz after all those hundreds of ideas already used

It bothers me when people equate socialism and communism - East Germany is described here as a socialist state. Socialism underpins most western democracies - it was extreme Communism that was behind the USSR.

What is socialism? What is communism?

According to Marx, socialism is the ownership of the means of production by the people (or state). Communism is the theorized end state of socialism where money and the state are no longer necessary.

By these definitions, and those of the East German state itself, East Germany was a socialist country. I will acknowledge, however, that in modern times the words communism and socialism have tended to stray far from their original meanings.

Easter Island is a bit of a stretch, though...

Don't think easter island belongs on here It does not really have a direction in its name. Unless you would consider A town/movie/creature/whatever called "Snorthum" Or "Qwestor" to have a cardinal direction in the name. It is in there, but not part of the name if you know what I mean.

Easter island was not named after a cardinal direction. But a translation of the word Pasen, (easter). The island was named Paaseiland, because it was "discovered" on easter sunday.

Can't say you are wrong because nowhere you mentioned it had to be named áfter a direction. Still it feels like it didn't fit ( and maybe you were unaware, though I don't think so. seeing as you are not unfamiliar with geography :) )

All that aside, very creative idea :) every time you think there can't be a new mode of quizzes

Not that it matters, but look up the etymology of the words East and Easter.
