This is a fun quiz, well done. Too bad there isn't a way to highlight each top five by itself so when you type in a country it doesn't fill-in every relevant answer. Like it though.

I feel like these quizzes have way too many categories and it is mostly just typing in every country in the world.

i feel like you should count external territories, because theyre still land that exist on earth and completely ignoring eg greenland for northernmost category doesnt feel right

If you do that then you would have to do the same for the southernmost countries and include territories like South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands or go even further and count territory claims in the Antarctic Treaty System because Antarctica and territories like South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands are still land that exists on earth and are claimed by a country. You have to be consistent in topics like this

I don't think Antarctic claims are on the same level as overseas territories. If I were the quizmaker, I would include overseas territories, departments, etc. but not Antarctic claims.

I agree. I don't like how territories are completely ignored as if they don't exist. It'd be easy enough to discount Antarctic territories, would it not?

Shouldn't Denmark be among the northernmost countries? Like it controls Greenland...

I found myself just randomly typing in country names rather than looking at the categories. Ended up with 71% correct. :-)

You've got two categories as population gain, I presume one should be loss!

China appears twice under "Tallest Building", and "Highest % Population Loss" is misspelled as "Population Gain".

I think one China is the PRC and the other is Taiwan/ROC. Still, the distinction should be clearer e.g. China PR or Republic of China/"Chinese Taipei"
