Great quiz,

Guessed all the obvious powerhouses... Then sort of those that the UK will know most then those that the USA will know most... got 100%, but probably guessed a good few with no avail!

And it's interesting to see what the Spanish speakers since you have to think how Argentineans, Spanish and Mexicans think and the French, which get more African ones than the probably due to their colonization of Morocco and Algeria, both of which are the most guessed quiz.
+2
Level 68
Jan 5, 2017
It seems most English speakers did not struggle much with Western Europe, but mainly got the countries I would think appear most on American news, (Canada, Mexico, China, Russia). Taking the Spanish version I was surprised to see every Spanish speaking South American country to be included. Very interesting that this quiz reveals the demographics of the people taking it.

Level 77

We were colonized by Europe so it makes sense that Americans remember our high school history classes and get those quickly, - Spain, UK, France, etc.

Level 84
Jan 5, 2017
Most of the people taking these quizzes are in the USA and UK, I think. They probably start with their own country then start scanning around on the map. Iceland, as an island, stands out and is conveniently located between the two. After I got the really obvious ones it's actually among the first that I guessed.
+3
Level 84
Jan 5, 2017
Other people start in the top left corner of the map as that's how they are trained to read, then start moving around either top-down or left-right. If they go left-right then Iceland is right there next to Canada, and hard to confuse with anything else.

My assumption is people remember the UK, which brings up Ireland and Iceland is pretty much automatic after that.
+1
Level 43
Nov 7, 2022
I agree with the chain UK - Ireland - Iceland, because it worked for me on this quiz. Ireland is connected to UK by geographical and to Iceland mostly by phonetic and ortographic similarity.

This could be checked from the stats of countries starting with I. Iceland and Ireland should have quite close percentages, if this assumption of phonetic association is correct.
