You should specify that you aren't including any of the tall grass prairie portion of the Great Plains. I wasted so much time trying to figure out why Iowa, Minnesota, nor Missouri would work.

I'm all for correct spelling... up to a point; being overly specific about the spelling of the -stans is kind of a dick move.

Plenty of good points made above.

About the Euro countries: the UK left the European Union, Lithuania uses the Euro, and the Czech Republic is now officially known as Czechia.

About the landlocked countries: Armenia and Azerbaijan are also Asian and landlocked.

No part of Armenia is north of the Caucasus Mountains. Georgia is considered Asian despite having a bit of territory in Europe, but 100% of Armenia is in Asia.

This quiz has been around for a while and needed corrections made some time ago (UK, Croatia, Lithuania either use the Euro or are no longer in the EU; accept PEI and Czechia; etc.). Why hasn’t this been taken care of, and why is this quiz featured when the needed changes haven’t been made?

It's not featured, but has been spotlighted recently.

Last time it was spotlighted (about 18 months ago) the same complaint was made that the quiz has errors - many because of changes that have happened since its creation (or the last update 7 years ago), though some were never correct.

Very nice quiz that I thoroughly enjoyed. But also agreed that you need updates on EU countries, fix the alphabetical order for Great Plains States, and, as commented way back in 2014, accept PEI for Prince Edward Island - that's how we Canadians say it, eh!

The UK left the EU. Lithuania and Croatia have adopted the euro (as of Jan 1, 2015, and Jan 1, 2023, respectively). This quiz needs to be updated.
