Canada, USA, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Peru, Colombia, Bolivia,Venezuela, Chile, Paraguay, and Cuba/Uruguay/Guatemala/Honduras/Nicaragua as 12 largest. Can’t see much of a difference in size with any of my 14 different globes stationed around the house like British soldiers in the American colonies.

For anyone curious - the 3rd amendment forbids the stationing of soldiers in private houses without permision from the owners.

I thought the times for quizzes like this were always 2 minutes to prevent people from being able to type every possible country...

Less time, and maybe one should have to type them in order to make it more challenging.

I misread it as "American counties" and was expecting a much harder quiz.

That title would have made more sense so your misreading is understandable. I only know that Los Angeles County is the most populous in America; not sure about the biggest.

It's San Bernardino county in California, which is slightly larger than Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Never please some people, always some who whinge that quizzes are 'too easy'. But it's going to be easy when you know your countries, for those who don't it's going to be more of a challenge.

While I understand that "American countries" is technically correct, do any Brazilians or Panamanians or Mexicans also consider themselves "Americans"?

Yes, everyone in the America continent considers themselves American

No, they definitely don't. Try telling a Canadian he is "American" sometime and see the reaction. Additionally, not everyone considers "America" to be a continent.
